What You Will Like

The full-size pickup truck segment has never been more popular, or more competitive. With its 2016 Silverado 1500, Chevrolet has staked its claim once again as king of the hill. The 2016 Silverado boasts a refined level of comfort, sophistication and brute force not found in trucks from Ford and Ram, specifically in the all-aluminum range of engines, where Chevy has laid claim to the most fuel-efficient V8 found in a full-size truck. In fact, at 23 mpg on the highway, the 5.3L unit provides a better return than the turbocharged V6 employed in the Ford F-150. Add in the fact that Chevy managed to make so many innovative changes while keeping the base price steady, and it's no surprise that the Silverado is a hit.

What's New For 2016

For 2016, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 includes several minor updates. The front end is slightly revised, with better-integrated headlights, including bi-halogen projectors and LED accents. Inside, HD radio returns, and there's a remote locking tailgate, as well as optional power-retractable side steps on Crew Cab models. The Z71 package is now offered only on 4WD Silverados. Finally, a new 8-speed automatic transmission is standard on Silverados with the 6.2L V8 as well as 5.3L Silverados outfitted in LTZ, LTZ/Z71 and High Country trims.

Introduction

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the smoothest-riding, most carlike of the full-size, light-duty pickups, and it boasts a wide range of configurations, powertrains and trim.

The current-generation Silverado was introduced as a 2014 model, which brought better fuel economy, nicer interiors, and the latest technology. 2015 and 2016 models brought minor updates, highlighted by slightly revised styling for 2016.

2016 Silverado 1500 models have one headlight on each side in place of the pair of stacked headlights on 2014-2015 models. The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 also gets distinctive new grille designs for each trim level, a more sculpted hood, new LED parking lights, and new headlights (HIDs with LED signature on WT, LS, LT; LEDs with LED signature on LTZ and High Country).

An 8-speed automatic transmission is available for more models than previously, including the 2016 Silverado High Country and LTZ with the 5.3-liter engine. Chevrolet MyLink offers improved performance plus Apple CarPlay capability for 2016, with 8-inch touchscreens on upper models, 7-inch touchscreens standard. New features available on 2016 Silverado 1500 models include a remote locking tailgate, power-articulating assist steps, Android Auto capability, wireless phone charging, high-beam assist, and Lane Keep Assist.

Silverado 1500 competes with Ram 1500, Ford F-150, Toyota Tundra, Nissan Titan, and GMC Sierra 1500. Silverado and Sierra differ mainly in appearance and trim. Silverado looks sportier and more adventurous, Sierra looks classier and more conservative.

With their large engines and steel bodies and structure, the GM pickups are more traditional than the Ford F-150, built with extensive use of aluminum and small, turbo engines.

The Silverado boasts a refined, comfortable interior, boatloads of technology, and the aforementioned smooth ride. Its boxy styling complements that of the 2500 HD versions.

Three engines, called EcoTec3, are available: The 4.3-liter V6 is rated at 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque and comes with a 6-speed automatic. The 5.3-liter V8 is rated 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, with a 6-speed automatic standard and an 8-speed automatic on upper models. The 6.2-liter V8 is rated 420 hp, 460 lb-ft of torque, and comes with the 8-speed. Though traditional in size, these engines are all-aluminum, with the latest in direct injection and variable valve timing.

The 8-speed features a wider ratio spread than that of the 6-speed: The 8-speed has a numerically higher first gear to help when starting off with a trailer or a heavy load, and it has a numerically lower rear axle ratios, which reduce engine rpm at highway speeds. EPA-estimated fuel economy doesn’t improve, but being able to go lower and higher, with more choices in between, is theoretically better in the real world.

Best fuel economy is the 4.3-liter V6 with an EPA-rated 18/24 mpg City/Highway. The 5.3-liter V8 is rated 16/23 mpg with the 6-speed automatic, 16/22 with the 8 speed. The 6.2-liter rates 15/21 mpg.

A Silverado 1500 with the 6.2-liter offers up to 12,000 pounds of towing capacity, though we’d recommend a Silverado 2500 for trailers anywhere close to that weight.

Trailer sway control, an integrated trailer brake controller, hill start assist, and, of course, rearview cameras make towing trailers easier. Stabilitrak electronic stability control and an automatic locking rear differential improve handling stability when driving an empty truck in the rain.

Silverado floors seem lower than those of most of the other trucks, so getting in and out of a Silverado often seems easier and lifting heavy sacks of feed into the bed is easier.

Lineup

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 models come in Regular Cab, Double Cab, and Crew Cab versions, with a choice of bed lengths. Powertrains: 4.3-liter V6 with 6-speed automatic, 5.3-liter V8 with 6- or 8-speed automatic, 6.2-liter V8 with 8-speed automatic. Four-wheel drive (4WD) and rear-wheel drive (2WD) are available.

Walkaround

Silverado 1500 has square lines and high shoulders, rendering a conservative but imposing appearance. Riding at the same height as that of the heavy-duty Silverado 2500, its dual-dome hood looks way up there when standing alongside the truck.

Whether the new front-styling treatment with redesigned grille for 2016 is more attractive is debatable, but it looks a little different and therefore fresher. The grille drops down in the middle, but the overall effect is that the front looks more linear. Upper models sport more bright trim.

Crew Cabs have large rear doors that make getting in and out easier, with enough space to comfortably swing feet through. Double Cab extended-cab models use doors that hinge normally, and they offer usable space for rear passengers.

The pickup beds come in the traditional 8-foot length, along with short-bed 5-foot, 8-inch and 6-foot, 6-inch lengths. Slots cut into the corners of the rear bumper make stepping up to grab something out of the bed easier, a great idea carried forward from the original Avalanche.

Interior

The Silverado interior is nicely trimmed, with soft-touch material used in the places you’re likely to touch. Large knobs make it easy to control basic functions at a glance, even when wearing gloves.

Noise levels are comparable to those in SUVs.

Top of the line is the Silverado High Country, with special leather and wood used in the interior, along with more features.

The Chevrolet Silverado interiors seem nicer and more comfortable than those found in the Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan.

Driving Impressions

By pickup truck standards, the Chevy Silverado boasts a nice, smooth ride. Handling is relatively responsive, again for a full-size pickup. Ride quality is noticeably more refined when compared with previous-generation Silverado models, or any full-size pickup from more than a couple of years ago.

Electric steering and four-wheel disc brakes designed for durability are standard equipment.

The 4.3-liter V6 runs smoothly, benefitting from a balance shaft. We used it to tow a camping trailer that weighed about 4700 pounds, and found no difficulty merging into fast traffic or powering up tall grades.

The 5.3-liter V8 is the most popular choice, rating 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, and we found it delivers quick acceleration performance. Maximum rated towing capability with this engine is 11,500 pounds, though a Silverado 2500 would work better for a trailer that heavy.

The 6.2-liter V8 is the most powerful choice, with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. A Silverado High Country with the 6.2-liter is rated to tow up to 12,000 pounds. Beyond 10,000, however, we would start thinking about a Silverado 2500 for its superior stability and tongue-weight capacity.

Cylinder deactivation is used by all three engines, which can run on just four cylinders when cruising or slowing down for improved fuel economy. These are all-aluminum engines for lighter weight, and feature the latest in continuously variable valve timing and direct injection.

We have found both the 6-speed and the 8-speed automatics to be smooth operators. Fuel economy has not been shown to be better with the 8-speed, but we would still prefer it for the added flexibility, assuming it proves reliable.

Summary

Chevy Silverado is arguably the classic pickup, with straightforward styling, a smooth ride, and traditional-style engines. The V6 is fuel efficient and a good choice, the big 6.2-liter V8 is powerful for stronger towing, but most buyers will likely settle for the 5.3-liter V8 for its all-around capability.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
