GM is credited with making the most reliable and durable pickups for decades. The Chevy Silverado 1500 is one among the popular contenders. This is a lightweight truck rich in lightweight materials that has been the favorite of buyers and faces rivals Ram and Toyota with aplomb. The 2018 Z71 Silverado receives a beautiful overhaul, both inside and out.
The new model will use more aluminum parts to lose more weight and at the same time improve its efficiency. Efficiency is important, but there is one thing Chevy holds to his heart. Of course we speak of their solid steel bed. This part of the pickup will not be modified because of its use, not only for work, but also for the war of marketing against Ford.
As for the platform, it will have changes. The frame will be brand new, but the standard body and separate frame will remain together with a live rear axle. The rear wheels will be standard, while all wheels and four-wheel drive will be optional.
Whereas the standard features remain unchanged. If this proves to be true, its basic WT model will be provided with 17-inch steel wheels, xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, bed light, air conditioning, cruise, vinyl seat , a rugged rubber flooring and a 4.2-inch audio color screen system.
With regard to the powertrain, you will have two basic options to choose from and a premium. The first is the unit that was already used on that truck, that is, the 4.3-liter V-6. For 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, this unit has been recently updated. The second variant is a four-cylinder turbocharger that has the duty to improve Silverado’s energy efficiency.
Whichever unit you buy, you’ll only have one transmission option, and that’s GM’s eight-speed automatic transmission. For the 2018 Z71 Silverado, you will have designated the small V8 V8 as usual. The available transmission with this one will be either automatic or eight speeds or ten speeds. Later, we are the latest product of Ford / GM cooperation.
