Editor's Overview

The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup finds itself in a styling and power war not only with rivals like the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500, but Nissan’s new Titan and Toyota’s Tundra. Even with its recent styling upgrades, the Silverado’s look leans toward the conservative side, which for many truck buyers is just fine.

2017 Chevrolet Silverado z71 lt.

I have had problems with the radio, Apple play does not work correctly when being connected to a iPhone. It will come and go at times and often does not register with the phone when the iPhone is plugged into the USB port. The vehicle also tends to shift hard at times while driving. Sometime when coming to a stop the vehicle downshifts very hard giving question to the computerized transmission.

- Kyle H

It is a big vehicle and I feel safe driving in the vehicle.

The vehicle drives smoothly and is reliable. The vehicle is roomy and comfortable even in a long distance drive. The vehicle has Bluetooth and OnStar which is very convenient when you are driving. The diagnostic are emailed to me if anything needs to be updated with the vehicle such as oil change, tire rotation, and etc. The rear view backup camera is very clear and reliable.

Chevy trucks are the way to go!

Very comfortable, nice riding vehicle with decent gas mileage. Handles well in the wintertime. The remote start and heated seats are also great features, which makes life so much nicer in harsh weather conditions. Always starts right up in the coldest of temperatures. Has great interior features, such as the center console, back-up camera and Bluetooth.
