2017 Chevrolet Silverado Review and Design
Posted on by
In about 12 months from now the eager customers will be able to embrace new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado.
Exterior and Interior
When it comes to design changes, new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado will undergo major exterior upgrades, with minimal changes inside of the cabin. The overall weight will be reduced due to use of lightweight materials, most probably aluminum that will be incorporated in its body. Upgraded aerodynamics will positively reflect on Chevrolet Silverado performances and fuel efficiency. As usual, some redesign procedures had to be performed in order to make 2017 model unique. Therefore, the front grille, headlights and the bumper will be restyled.
Unlike the outside of 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, inside of the cabin will suffered only minor changes. Although no details about changes of interior were revealed, we might guess that all improvements will be in favor of comfort and pleasure of all the passengers. The soft touch materials will be used for upholstering. When it comes to infotainment features, there will be at least navigation system, touch screen, Wi-Fi 4G LTE connectivity, audio system and many more. Safety features, like airbags, backup cameras, sensors and many more will be included as well.
We expect several engine options under the hood of 2017 Chevrolet Silverado. Let’s start with Chevy 1500. This model will have either 5.3 liter or 6.2 liter V8 engine. Third engine option will be a 4.3 liter V6 There are still no reliable information about power and torque that those engines will be able to produce, but EPA ratings came out and it seems it will be 17-19 mpg city / 24 mpg highway. Those engines will be mated to an eight speed automatic transmission. 2017 Colorado 2500 HD will be powered by either petrol 6.0 V8 or a diesel 6.0 liter engine which is capable to produce 397 hp. Both of them will be mated to a six speed manual-automatic transmission. At last, 3500 HD will be equipped with petrol 6.0 liter V8 or 6diesel 6.6 liter V8.
It is still unknown when Chevrolet Silverado will hit the markets worldwide, since no official announcement was released. Yet, we might assume that potential customers will have to wait until last quarter of 2016 or even the beginning of 2017. The exact price is also unknown, but we believe that 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 might cost $26,000, while the 2500 HD it will be necessary to cash out $33,400 and for 3500 HD about $34,400, respectively.
