The Silverado has been delivering great performance for decades, but the newest lineup is even better than its predecessors, thanks to the latest round of improvements from the engineers at Chevrolet. Let’s take a look at what the 2023 Silverado 1500 can bring to your business.

Four Engine Options Offering Exceptional Power

Four capable powertrains are available on the Silverado, so you can get one that offers the exact right balance between power, efficiency, and affordability. They all come standard with automatic start/stop and are well-constructed and built to last.

  • The base 2.7L Turbo High Output provides 310 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque and pairs with an 8-speed automatic transmission. It can get up to 19 MPG in the city and 21 MPG on the highway MPG and features an active fuel management system.
  • The 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 brings 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque to the table. It pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission and gets up to 17 MPG in the city and 21 MPG on the highway. It also features a dynamic fuel management system.
  • The 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 is even more powerful than the 5.3L, with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. It pairs with the same 10-speed transmission and also features dynamic fuel management. It can get up to 16 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway and can bring your truck’s towing capacity up to 9,100 lbs if it’s properly equipped.
  • The Duramax 3.0L Turbo-Diesel I-6 has been upgraded for the 2023 model year, now boasting 305 hp and 495 lb-ft of torque. That makes for a towing capability of up to 13,300 lbs, and yet it’s also the most efficient option of the bunch, with a rating of up to 24 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway. It pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission and delivers quiet performance that won’t disrupt your worksite.

A Rugged Cargo Bed

With a best-in-class cargo volume of 89.1 cu.ft., you can fit plenty in the back of your Chevy. Its tough Durabed construction can withstand heavy daily use, and it comes with 12 standard tie-downs so that you can keep everything securely in place during transit. The available Multi-Flex Tailgate makes the bed even more versatile. It comes with an inner gate that can fold out from the primary gate, allowing for a number of different configurations. The Multi-Flex Tailgate can act as a load stop, a full-width step, a work surface, and more.

An Array of Towing Tech

Towing is always serious business, even if you’re just bringing a trailer on vacation. But when you’re towing on the job, it’s even more important for drivers to consistently be in full control of their vehicle and stay safe and sound throughout the entirety of the drive. Luckily, the Chevy Silverado 1500 is available with a comprehensive suite of technologies that let you tow with confidence.

Hooking a trailer up in the first place can be tricky, and it can take a lot of valuable time to line everything up just right. But with the Silverado’s four available hitch views, it’s easy for the driver to see exactly what they’re doing. Instead of having a second person communicate with shouts and hand gestures, a single person can get the job done right. Other camera angles come in handy while you’re on the road, like the Transparent Trailer View, which gives the driver a clear view of what’s behind them, and the Inside Trailer View, which lets you monitor what’s going on inside the trailer. Four available parking views make it a piece of cake to park just about anywhere, even if you’ve got a bulky trailer in tow. Between its 8 available cameras, the Silverado offers up to 14 camera views in total.

Trailer Sway Control, Hill Start Assist, and Auto Grade Braking are all proven technologies that keep drivers in control, even when pulling heavy trailers under less-than-ideal circumstances. An available trailer tire pressure and temperature monitoring system keeps track of your trailer’s status as you drive, warning you if it detects any problems. Tow/Haul mode improves the truck’s acceleration while trailering or hauling a heavy load, and the Silverado can detect when a trailer is hooked up and remind you to engage the Tow/Haul mode for optimal results.

And you don’t just want your trailer to be safe while en route; it also needs to be secure while the truck is parked. That’s where Trailer Theft Alert comes in. This available system sounds the truck’s horn and flashes the lights if it detects that your trailer has become unhitched. With an active OnStar Safety & Security Plan, you can also get mobile notifications when the alarm is activated by phone, text, or email.

A Mobile Office

The Silverado doesn’t isn’t just a brawny workhorse; it’s got brains too. Even if your business is mainly centered around manual labor, you probably still require a certain amount of modern technology. If you need your workers to be able to access the internet wherever they go, you can get an available Wi-Fi hotspot, turning all of your trucks into mobile office spaces where workers can use both the tools of their trade and their laptops. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, so any worker can connect their phone to the truck’s interface in order to stay in communication whenever necessary and use navigation apps to get to delivery destinations and new worksites quickly.
