  • Chevrolet is updating its Silverado for the 2016 model year
  • 2016 Chevrolet Silverado to feature new front styling, technology
  • Chevy says the latest Silverado will go on sale sometime this fall

Although the recently redesigned Chevrolet Silverado has only been on the road for 2 years, Chevrolet has already updated its popular pickup with a facelift for the 2016 model year. The automaker recently announced the updates ahead of the revised pickup's on-sale date coming later this year.

While Chevrolet has not yet fully confirmed exactly what changes are coming to the Silverado for 2016, the brand has announced that the pickup will wear a new front-end look that's designed to "reflect the strength and refinement that have helped make Silverado the fastest-growing pickup brand this year" -- or at least, so says Sandor Piszar, the marketing director for Chevy Trucks. Translation: Expect the Silverado to look bolder and more aggressive in front.

Other changes are less important -- though they're still big news for a truck that was fully redesigned just 2 years ago. Such revisions included expanded availability of the pickup's 8-speed automatic transmission, which will likely increase fuel economy, along with an updated Chevy MyLink system and additional safety technologies for drivers interested in having the latest high-tech safety gadgets.

"The redesigned 2016 Silverado will build on Chevy Trucks' legacy of dependability," said Piszar. He also noted that the updated truck "will feature a more muscular appearance and offer new customer-focused technologies."

Although Chevrolet hasn't announced any other details about the Silverado, the automaker noted that it would be releasing more details in the fall as the revised pickup gets closer to going on sale.

What it means to you: The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado is getting some big revisions to stay fresh to customers -- and to compete with the newly redesigned Ford F-150.
