It doesn’t matter if you are a Chevrolet guy, a Ford guy, even a Porsche guy… When you are buying a new vehicle, you want to get the most bang for your buck, and you want a vehicle that will be able to satisfy all of your needs. That’s exactly what you get with the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado.
Want powerful engines? You got them with the new Silverado thanks to a V6 option coupled with two powerful V8 powertrains that provide best-in-class towing. But that’s just the start. You also get plenty of comfort, refinement, and safety and connectivity technologies that you will love when you are daily-driving your 2017 Silverado.
It is therefore not surprising that the new Silverado has garnered some pretty positive reviews.
Here are just some of the glowing 2017 Chevrolet Silverado reviews you will find on the web
All-purpose vehicles such as the Chevrolet Silverado can haul passengers and plywood and tow trailers up steep grades without breaking a sweat. It's one of the reasons why the modern full-size truck is one of the most popular vehicles on the road today. They come in many forms, from a sparsely equipped, three-seat workhorse to leather-wrapped people haulers. Fully loaded crew-cab models even rival full-size luxury sedans in terms of rear seat legroom and creature comforts. The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is no different, offering a variety of cab and bed configurations and tons of available features.
But several aspects of the Silverado help distinguish it from its rivals. New for this year is the Teen Driver system, which allows users to obtain notifications whenever certain parameters (such as a maximum speed or emergency safety systems) are breached or triggered by a secondary driver, such as a valet or teenager. A number of appearance packages are also available to differentiate your Silverado from the crowd. – Edmunds.com
The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a full-size pickup truck that's better than a half-ton Labrador retriever—just as friendly and loyal, but highly unlikely to leak in your shoes.
A V-6 is standard in the Silverado, and a pair of V-8s step up from there. The 4.3-liter V-6 is good for 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque, and suitable for most jobs—even towing most recreational toys. A 5.3-liter V-8 is the next pick and pushes the Silverado to drag more than 11,500 pounds, if properly configured. Its 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque will hit the sweet spot mentally for many buyers, and it’s not a bad pick. A 6.2-liter V-8 sits atop the heap and can haul up to 12,500 pounds this year. – The Car Connection
Boasting a wide scope of tech features as well as a best-in-class tow rating, the Silverado has the hardware to match its tough aesthetic, in turn offering truck buyers a full sized pickup that backs up the claims made by its bold looks with legitimate capability – Digital Trends
