    Exceptional capability isn't easily doable. Many have tried, but learning what it means to create a capable machine is something few get right, and Chevrolet is an example of the latter. Chevrolet is one of the most recognizable names in the automotive industry, thanks in no small part to its industry-leading quality incorporated into the craftsmanship of each vehicle sold. The 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 is a strong and durable truck, and it's not uncommon knowledge that the Silverado 1500 is the second-best-selling vehicle in the country. With so much fanfare behind it, some wonder whether the 2023 model is worth their hard-earned money. Between the performance and features that make up this pickup truck's immense versatility and its competitive price, the 2023 Silverado 1500 has plenty to offer if you're in the market for a new pickup.

    The 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 has a starting MSRP of $35,600.[a] The base model nets you the Work Truck trim, complete with a capable powertrain, spacious bed, and both media and safety features that rival any other truck in its price range. Higher-end trims like the Custom bring several improvements to the mix: better seats, larger wheels, and much more. Spending more will net you the Custom Trail Boss, an off-roading oriented trim, as well as options like the LT, RST, or the LT Trail Boss, another off-roading variant. The LTZ and High Country provide the utmost versatility blended with luxurious amenities. Lastly, the ZR2, the priciest Silverado 1500 trim, is the ultimate off-roading model with its front and rear locking differentials, custom dampers, 33-inch tires, better ground clearance, skid plates, and much more.

  • Performance

    A high-output turbocharged 2.7L I-4 engine comes standard with the Silverado 1500 and with trims like the Work Truck and Custom. The turbocharged 2.7L I-4 engine pairs with an 8-speed automatic transmission; each of the other three engines links to a 10-speed automatic transmission instead. The 2023 Silverado 1500's payload capacity remains at 2,260 lbs no matter which engine you buy, but the maximum towing capacity can vary greatly. For example, the base engine tows 9,500 lbs, while the maximum towing capacity for the Silverado 1500 is 13,300 lbs using two of four powertrains.

    The 2.7L Turbo High-Output and 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 Engines

    The base engine creates 310 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque; the latter provides greater torque output than the 5.3L V8 engine with its 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. The maximum towing capacity of the Silverado 1500 increases to 11,300 lbs with the 5.3L V8 engine, a 19% boost. However, the torque output isn't the only advantage the turbocharged 2.7L I-4 engine has; the base powertrain earns EPA-estimated ratings of 19 MPG in the city and 22 on the highway with RWD compared against the 5.3L V8 engine's ratings of 17 MPG in the city and 21 MPG on the highway. Utilizing the four-wheel drivetrain lowers these ratings, albeit not by much.

    The 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 Engine

    The two remaining powertrains ensure your 2023 Silverado 1500 performs to the utmost of its ability. The largest engine of the bunch is the 6.2L V8 engine, which provides 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque and a stark increase in towing capacity going from the previously mentioned 11,300 lbs up to 13,300 lbs. Although the 6.2L V8 engine is only available in 4WD, it earns almost identical EPA-estimated ratings to the 5.3L V8 engine in RWD: 16 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway.

    The 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel Engine

    What if you wanted the best of both worlds: performance and efficiency? The Duramax turbo-diesel 3.0L I-6 engine is the answer to your problem, and with its 305 hp and 495 lb-ft of torque, you'll be towing the same 13,300 lbs as those with the large and fuel-consumptive 6.2L V8 engine. The turbo-diesel engine doesn't only match the most capable powertrain in towing and provides the most torque output of the lot, but also the most fuel-efficient with its outstanding EPA-estimated ratings of 24 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway with RWD and 22 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway with 4WD.

  • Space

    The 2023 Chevy Silverado has an open-feeling interior that provides a comfortable fit for any passenger. Something that's not guaranteed on pickup trucks or otherwise is giving passengers in the back similar head and legroom as the driver. The hip and shoulder rooms are also close between the two. The 2023 Silverado 1500 gives the driver and front seat passenger 43.03 inches of headroom and 44.53 inches of legroom. Passengers in the back row lose a few inches of headroom at 40.12 inches, but legroom is barely affected, with 43.4 inches for passengers in the back.

    Shoulder and Hip Room

    Comfort isn't all about head and legroom, but shoulder and hip room matter, too, because the width of a cabin is equally as important as its height or length. With the 2023 Silverado, you and the passenger next to you will have 66.02 inches of shoulder room, meaning it won't be an issue. The same can be said for the back row too, which has a similar 65.16 inches of shoulder room, meaning passengers in the back also won't have any issue. Lastly, the available hip room in the 2023 Silverado is another highlight of its interior, with 61.18 inches for people in the front row, while passengers in the back have 60.24 inches.

    Cargo Volume

    The Silverado 1500 also offers some of the most cargo space out of any truck in its price range. The lengthiest bed is impressive, but so are the other two available beds, including the smallest offering: a 5'8" long bed that equates to 62.9 cu.ft. of space. For many drivers, the cargo space, coupled with the upwards of 13,300 lbs of available towing capacity, will be plenty in the name of versatility, especially for hobbyists. The next available bed size between the smallest and the largest is the 6'6" long bed. This bed increases the cargo space to 69.5 cu.ft., about a 10% uptick. Lastly, the bulkiest bed for your Silverado 1500 is a monstrous 8'2" long bed. Buying a Silverado 1500 with this option gives you a whopping 83.5 cu.ft. of space: 20% more than the 6'6" long bed and 33% more than the base one.

  • Features

    Chevy is one of the best manufacturers to create pickup trucks, and its focus on keeping its vehicles up on the times helps retain the resale value for the future. One example of keeping up with the times is the features in the 2023 Silverado, which there are more than a few, standard or otherwise. For example, some 2023 vehicles don't include features like Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, but they continue to gain popularity with constant software updates, meaning Apple or Google will keep your software up to date as long as possible.

    Touchscreen Options and Connectivity Features

    Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have been around for nearly a decade, but it's still not as standard as you'd think. Although, if you purchase a vehicle like the Silverado 1500, you won't have to worry about this. However, this applies to the Silverado models that stick with the standard 7-inch infotainment center with the Infotainment 3 system, which includes other features like Bluetooth and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot; shoppers who opt for the 13.4-inch infotainment center have more benefits. The 13.4-inch infotainment center not only brings more screen space to the table, which helps in many ways, but it swaps the inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for their wireless equivalents.

    The 13.4-inch screen also helps you see more of your surroundings with the built-in rear-view camera and is doubly helpful if you opt for the optional bed view camera to keep an eye on your cargo. Compared to the 7-inch touchscreen, the 13.4-inch one is presented in a far wider aspect ratio, lending it a sleek and modernized appearance. The Silverado 1500 effortlessly combines style and substance; an example is the hitch guidance capabilities in which the camera and infotainment center work together, along with the in-vehicle trailering app, to make your life as a pickup driver the easiest it's been.

    Next-Level Comfort for Those Long Drives

    Another reason you should pick the Silverado 1500 for your pickup of choice if spending long hours behind the wheel is because of comfort. More specifically, you can customize your Silverado 1500's seats to be more comfortable than any other vehicle you've sat in. The standard offering includes cloth 4-way manual driver and passenger seats. However, upgrading from the manual seats means the driver and passenger each get 10-way power-adjustable leather seats. The driver has the added benefit of power lumbar support, another crucial feature for long drives to prevent lower back pain or damage; your lower back will thank you.
