Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Desert: Like the High Country, But *Totally* Different

What’s the difference between high desert and high country? Both exist at higher altitudes, and, uh, one is a desert, while the other could just be country that’s high up. Okay, so we actually don’t know the answer to that one, but we do know what sets the new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Desert apart […]

2016 Chevrolet Silverado Rally Edition Debuts, Realtree Edition Shown for Real

As it was before, so is it again—at least in the world of Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup-truck special edition models! For the refreshed 2016 Silverado, Chevrolet announced it will again offer buyers a so-called “Rally Edition.” The package includes either 20- or 22-inch black-painted wheels, hood and bodyside stripes, and more, and it (re-)joins the […]

Chevrolet, GMC Trying Again with Silverado and Sierra Hybrid Pickups

Back in 2009, General Motors introduced a two-mode hybrid setup on its Silverado/Sierra full-size pickups and related SUVs, but truck buyers showed little interest and the powertrain was dropped with the move to the redesigned, 2014 models.

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Midnight Edition 4×4, After Dark

Chevrolet’s rapidly proliferating “Midnight Edition” treatment keeps things simple: Darken the exterior trim, slap on some black-painted wheels, and generally give the subject vehicle an overwhelming sense of subtle meanness. And so it goes with the Silverado Midnight Edition. We experienced the 2015 model just before driving the updated 2016 Silverado 1500, and, unable to […]

2016 Chevrolet Silverado Spy Photos: A Slight Mug Adjustment Is in Store

Having been redesigned for 2014, the Silverado is coming due for a freshening in the next year or so. Right on schedule, then, we’ve received our […]

How We’d Spec It: The Stripper 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with Extra Awesome

There’s something alluring about a base-model pickup—maybe it’s all the old Chevy C-10s, Ford F-100s, and assorted Dodge trucks we troll the internet for, or maybe it’s that modern trucks are pricier and more tech-laden than German luxury sedans. A 2015 Ford F-150 we ran through our How We’d Spec It online configurator test was a moderately equipped […]

How We’d Spec It: The Most ’Murican Sub-$50K Chevrolet Silverado 1500

We’re all about fairness here at Car and Driver, which is why we started to feel bad that Chevy fans had to sit idly by while we applied our fantasy online-car-configurating How We’d Spec It process to not one but two different 2015 Ford F-150s. So here we are, folks, kickin’ it fair and balanced […]

Monster Stickers Not Included: Chevrolet Offering “Black Out” Package for Silverado Work Truck

In today’s full-size-pickup world, the humble base/work truck variants are rarely spoken of, overshadowed by $50,000-plus, leather-lined, over-chromed Platinums and Laramies. But they’re not totally forgotten—just look at Ram, which has been churning out interesting takes on the base-truck theme like the Express and Tradesman. Now Chevrolet has entered the game with a slick Black Out […]
