2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Review, Pricing, and Specs
If you’re looking for a full-size truck as tough as the Canadian wilderness, look no further than the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. With great power, remarkable towing and cargo capacity, and five configurations and nine trims, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
The Silverado comes with a regular, double, or crew cab and has short, long, and standard bed options.
In addition to the cab and load bed options, all trims come in two or four-wheel drive.
Trims and Pricing
Each trim within the Silverado range has several options that can affect the price. There are configurations, several engine options, and two or four-wheel drive. The MSRP quoted is for the base model at each trim. The price will be affected by the engines and other options chosen.
|2-Wheel Drive||4-Wheel Drive|
|LT Trail Boss||N/A||$70,772*|
|Custom Trail Boss||N/A||$64,772*|
The 2023 Silverado gets minor updates from last year, but after the significant changes that were introduced in 2022, this is unsurprising.
The cabin of the Silverado is undeniably well-appointed and aesthetically appealing. Even the entry-level LT looks and feels luxurious, while the High Country wows customers with its navy blue leather seats and wood trim.
There are several options in terms of engine. There’s a four-cylinder 2.7-litre TurboMax, two V8 options in the 5.3-litre EcoTec3 and the 6.2-litre EcoTec3, and a Duramax 3.0-litre turbo-diesel.
Chevy’s technical staff have looked at the Duramax engine and upped the torque to an impressive 495 lb-ft. This is one of the quietest diesel motors around. The base 2.7-litre 4-cylinder engine isn’t a growling V8, but it performs well and has excellent fuel consumption, making up for the four missing cylinders. The Chevy V8 motors are legendary and provide a great driving experience.
The Silverado is a great handling truck with excellent road manners and responsive steering. These large trucks are built to do work, and they perform that task admirably while still being comfortable to drive.
For those wanting to explore the Canadian wilderness, there’s the Trail Boss and the ZR2. The ZR2 is a serious off-roader that gets more protection with the addition of steel rock protection rails and steel skid plates. The Trail Boss comes with gnarly tyres, a 2.0-inch lift, and other off-road upgrades to make taking the path less travelled easier.
To Wrap Up
The 2023 Silverado will appeal to a wide range of shoppers with its nine trims, three cabs, five engines, and three bed sizes. These trucks are serious workhorses and will support your business all day long while still being comfortable enough to take you to the highway when need be.
