2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 Release Date, Info, Price – There are some news regarding the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 truck. There are many pictures going about of a heavily camouflaged truck doing practice rounds and it was unmistakably labeled as the newest Silverado truck. All the features pointed to a new model and it immediately confirmed the speculations that Chevy was appointing a new truck to be released.
There is still no indications on when the car is going to be offered for sale but based on the current appearance we can assume that it is closer than we might think. The features of the car seem completely ready and although they have managed to conceal the parts with heavy layers of masking it only helped us understand on which parts they have concentrated the most for their update.
The last update the Chevy Silverado got was in 2014 and this new one comes at a great period for the vehicle. It will bring various new additions to the appearance of the truck and also provide some performance enhancing additions that can be a significant part of this facelift. The car is going to update the hood, entrance fascia, grille, tail lights and headlights which were the parts in question when dealing with the new Silverado 1500. You can learn about the update and so much more from this review and we managed to gather all the necessary information about the vehicle so far.
The 2017 Silverado actually manages to outrank the 2017 Dodge RAM 1500, Nissan Titan and the Toyota Tundra in terms of specs, equipment and performance, but still does not have an upper hand compared to the leader in the segment, the 2017 Ford F-150 truck.
2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 exterior
Even despite the heavy camo it was noticeable that the exterior of the 2017 Chevy Silverado has gone through a significant update. Chevy needed to update their vehicle in order to keep it fresh and to have it compete in the segment where it is at now. You can still see how well the vehicle has been shaped all the way though the camo and it shows us that they actually managed to do a pretty good job. Of course other parts will emerge in time and we will slowly get to see more form the Silverado. What is apparent is that there are some newly added LED strips to the headlights and there is a completely new design to the fender and the hood of the car. It will make it much more contemporary looking like this and give it the needed freshness, but will keep the car as rugged as it ever was.
There are some rumors which are yet to be confirmed (we have to wait for the release date of the car) and they include the Silverado receiving new sheetmetal and changing to an all-aluminum setup. This will mean that the car is going to lose a lot of weight, but these rumors are not confirmed yet and we do not know whether this would be a good choice for the new Chevy Silverado 1500. It does sort of a sound good that it might get higher fuel efficiency this way but we are not sure if the vehicle is going to lose its edge this way. We still do not have a fully painted picture here and there is a lot which can change during the time the vehicle gets to be released, but this is a great start for the changes most apparent on the 2017 Chevy Silverado which make it a much more modern car.
As it might came to be, the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 interior might go to be unchanged. This means that a lot of the things seen inside the previous truck are going to be established the same in the new version. This perhaps goes for the style and the look, while the technology and the materials used are going to be upgraded. In accordance with the spy photos, there are not many things that appeared to have changed and perhaps they are saving the best for last if they decide to remodel the cabin. The already present Company’s MyLink infotainment is a sure thing but it is going to be updated with new software and technology updates. The inside was already an aggressive setting and it appears that they do not plan to tone it down any bit. This might suit some customers who are used to this kind of a look but our opinion is that one should do more on the inside if you are already updating the whole vehicle.
There are two options currently rumored that are going to be used for the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500. Two of the main options include the 6.2-liter V8 and the 5.3-liter V8 engines. There is also the possibility of adding a 4.3-liter V6 engine but we feel that the previous two are much more adaptable for this kind of a vehicle. The 5.3 liter one is perhaps an appropriate choice based on the fuel efficiency it can offer which amounts to 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway. Transmission choices are also a factor here and we also have many ones available, so perhaps between a computerized 8-speed transmission and a 10-speed transmission we have some good choice which can be made for the new Silverado truck.

It amounts to a figure of around $35,500 which may change until the release date but we assume not in a significant manner. The release date on the other hand is still not familiar and we will have to wait a bit more to get it but we assume that a waiting period of over a year is in front of us.
