Which Silverado 1500 is the Best?

It's hard to go wrong with any 2016 Silverado, provided you buy the truck that's right for you. In other words: don't get a bare-bones WT model if you'll spend most of your time hauling your family around town. Likewise, don't get a High Country if you'll be driving to job sites. For us, the right truck is somewhere in the middle: an LT, or possibly an LTZ, with Chevy's high-tech MyLink system. And we'd go with the Crew Cab model to maximize practicality. Find a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for sale

 

How Much Does a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Cost?

Like all full-size trucks, the Silverado 1500 is offered with a wide array of body style configurations, engine choices, drivetrain options and bed sizes. We've simplified it here for shoppers interested in buying a Silverado, but choosing the truck that's right for you will involve more than just picking a trim level.

Base-level Silverado models use the WT designation, for Work Truck. Starting at $28,100, the WT includes only the basics, like power locks, cruise control, air conditioning, vinyl upholstery and an AM/FM stereo with a USB input, but no CD player.

Drivers who upgrade to the LS ($30,100) get power mirrors, power windows, keyless entry, GM's OnStar system with 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, a CD player and an entry-level version of Chevrolet's MyLink system with a 4.2-inch center screen.

Shoppers who step up to the LT ($34,200) get features like steering wheel audio controls, alloy wheels, a 6-speaker stereo, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and cloth upholstery. The LT also offers more options than the WT and LS, including features like an alarm, a lane-departure warning system, a rearview camera and a forward-collision alert system.

The luxury-oriented LTZ ($42,400) is the next trim in the Silverado's lineup. Only offered in Double Cab or Crew Cab body styles, the LTZ includes 18-in alloy wheels, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a remote starter, a power sliding rear window, a memory system for the mirrors and seats, a rearview camera and an 8-in color touchscreen for the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system.

Topping the Silverado lineup is the upscale High Country ($50,700), which is only offered in Crew Cab guise. It features stitched leather seats, chrome trim on many exterior surfaces, a Bose audio system and cooled front seats. It also uses the truck's 6.2-liter V8, which is exclusive to the High Country model.

If you're interested in options, the Silverado has quite a few. Additional extras include a power sunroof, a navigation system, cooled seating, wireless device charging, power-adjustable pedals, a heated steering wheel and safety features like forward-collision alert, automatic high beams and a lane-departure warning system.

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Safety

Is the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 a Safe Car?

All Silverado pickups include daytime running lights, dual front airbags, front-side airbags, side-curtain airbags and a tire pressure monitor. Safety options include forward-collision alert, automatic high beams, lane-departure warning and GM's OnStar system, which can provide crash notification and stolen vehicle tracking assistance.

The Silverado is the first pickup to receive a 5-star overall crash-test rating by the federal government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Crew cab variants received the top rating, earning 5-star scores in front-impact tests and the side-impact assessment, along with four stars in the rollover rating. The Silverado has not yet been tested by the nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Competition

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs the competition

2016 Ford F-150 -- The newly redesigned F-150 strong competitor, offering V6 and V8 power, excellent capabilities, great gas mileage and a long list of trim levels ranging from basic to high luxury.

2016 RAM 1500 -- Formerly the Dodge Ram, the RAM 1500 boasts muscular styling, HEMI V8 power and available air suspension. We also like its optional diesel engine, which is now offered on light-duty models.

2016 Toyota Tundra -- The Tundra doesn't have the same wide-ranging lineup as the Silverado -- but it's getting close. Shoppers who pick the Tundra will find a refined, muscular pickup with many great standard features and options.

Used GMC Sierra Denali -- If you want more features and bolder styling than you can get in the Silverado, you may want to consider its upscale GMC Sierra Denali twin. Prices are higher, though, so you might have to check out a used model.
