New 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 at The Chevy Source for Long Island, NY
The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado lineup is heading into its third year since a major redesign; yet Chevy is already tweaking the Silverado's look and adding some key features-most notably, a more finely detailed front-end design, more widely available eight-speed automatic transmissions, bolstered active-safety hardware, and new-generation MyLink infotainment systems. A more upright, chiseled-some would say boxy-look was given to the Silverado then, with a more upright yet better-trimmed interior appearance to match.
Under the Silverado 1500's Hood
The engine sizes in the 2016 Chevy Silverado lineup are probably going to be familiar to repeat GM truck owners, pretty much everything else is different, and it's all been thoroughly modernized in recent years. All of them feature aluminum blocks and heads and are now equipped with direct injection, cylinder deactivation, and continuously variable valve timing.The base EcoTec3 4.3-liter V-6 makes 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft, a sufficient amount of torque to even be paired with the heavier crew-cab models, and we tend to think it's gutsy enough for all but the most serious towing and hauling needs. With the 5.3-liter V-8, you get 355 hp and 383 lb-ft, while the top 6.2-liter V-8, at 420 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque, provides the most capability; it can tow up to 12,000 pounds.
Design of Chevrolet Silverado 1500
This year's refined look adds up to what we see, in early pictures, to be some sharpening and finer detail in the front end. It appears that Chevy has dropped the dual lamps in favor of single headlights, punctuated by a line of LEDs, and that there's not quite as much chrome. Yet we'll have to reserve judgment until we see it in person-or Chevrolet releases more pictures. It all simultaneously nods to the looks of buff Chevy HD trucks while adding a luxury-car feature set to the top of the lineup. And while the Silverado may look every bit a direct rival to the Ford F-150, which is it, the differences in engineering approach between these two models couldn't be more different-as GM essentially sticks to a steel-bodied layout and traditional, big-displacement engines, while Ford has moved to downsized, turbocharged engines and aluminum-intensive construction in the F-150.

An upgraded version of Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system is also expected in the 2016 Silverado. Expect full Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, allowing you to use smartphone apps via the vehicle's touch-screen system. MyLink is already one of the better systems on the market-refreshingly simple compared to some other lead rivals-with connectivity for multiple devices, natural-language voice recognition, a 'favorites' system (contacts, destinations, radio stations or media), and an eight-inch touch screen. Just this past year GM added text-message alerts, Siri Eyes Free, and available OnStar 4G LTE hotspot capability (with a subscription data service).
