1 | About the Silverado
Chevrolet Silverado is the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickup, with high-strength steel construction backed by proven V-8 power and efficiency.
The 2016 Silverado 1500 builds on Chevy Trucks’ legacy of dependability with a dramatic new design, signature LED lighting, advanced connectivity and enhanced customer-focused technologies. New front-end designs with a bolder, more sculpted appearance reflect the underlying strength of the Silverado’s high-strength steel construction.
Powerful, efficient V-8 engines are an integral part of the Silverado’s capability and use advanced technologies such as direct injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and continuously variable valve timing to offer the best V-8 fuel economy in a pickup – 23 mpg in 5.3L models – and the most powerful V-8 in a light-duty truck: 420 horsepower (313 kW) and 460 lb-ft of torque (623 Nm) from the available 6.2L engine.
The 6.2L enables an 11,700-pound max trailering rating with LTZ Z71 crew cab models, when properly equipped.
The LTZ Z71 package includes Rancho monotube shocks, Hill Descent Control, underbody shield and recovery hooks, 18-inch bright-machined wheels and more
Standard automatic locking rear differential on Z71 models
Standard four-wheel disc brakes with Duralife brake rotors, which offer up to double the service life of conventional rotors
New phone integration via Chevrolet MyLink enhances connectivity and promotes safer driving. It allows smartphone users to connect with applications such as navigation, hands-free messaging and more through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Android Auto is standard on a new 7-inch radio at the start of production and is planned for 8-inch radios later in the model year
4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity provides a stronger connection in remote locations, for up to seven devices
New wireless phone charging is included on models with front bucket seats

“Working with the team at Chevrolet on this new Realtree Edition Silverado really brought home to me just how important the right truck is for outdoor enthusiasts,” said Realtree Designer and President Bill Jordan. “You just don’t realize how much goes into building a true performance vehicle until you look behind the scenes. The men and women at Chevy truly delivered on this project. This truck has the perfect combination of features, comfort and safety – whether you’re driving around town, on the highway or off-road.”
