Even though 2017 is a bit far from now, we could see several announcements of the upcoming cars. Chevrolet was one of those carmakers who already decided to share some details about the future releases, and we decided to present the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado this time. It is one of the most popular cars manufactured by this Ford’s subsidiary. 2015 Chevrolet Silverado is a proof that competence on the pickup market is increasing. This means Chevrolet must put a lot of effort in order to create a competent truck which can stand side by side with F150, Ram, and some other trucks. 2017 model is based on the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado model launched last year, thus, we can have some picture about the future model. It will face various improvements, both inside and outside. Supposedly, it is going to be much more aggressive than its predecessors, but let’s start with the engine first.
2017 Chevrolet Silverado Engine
It is hard to talk about the engine of the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado because it will have several trim levels with a different powertrain. However, we will try to present the most important ones. Some of the engines which are going to be used are 6.2l and 5.3l eight-cylinders. We don’t have any info about torque and horsepower, but EPA rating is 19/24 mpg. The third option is the 6.0l eight-cylinder with almost 400 HP.
Contrary to the first two that are going to have an eight-speed gearbox, the 6.0l will have six-speed transmission system. The automatic transmission is the main one while some engines will have both options. Last but not least are 6.6l diesel engine and 6.0l gas unit. We are still waiting for a complete info about these engines so please stay tuned with us. Bear mind that these engines are not going to be available for every trim level.
Chevrolet Silverado 2017 Interior and Exterior
This time exterior is in the spotlight while the cabin is a little bit neglected. This means exterior received more improvements and changes. Engineers tried to improve aerodynamics in order to enhance fuel economy. Grille is slightly different and headlights are going to have a new shape. There are rumors that fenders are going to be modified, as well.
As we have already mentioned in the previous paragraph, interior changes are not going to be as big as those outside. On the other hand, there will be some minor modifications. However, Chevrolet hasn’t still published what changes cabin will face. There are some assumptions, but we don’t want to make any guesses. As soon as we get new details about the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado we will present them on our website.
2017 Chevrolet Silverado Release Date and Price
We will not see the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado on the streets for at least a year. According to some predictions, it is going to hit the market at the end of 2016, or even in the first quarter of 2017.
However, it will surely be presented at several car shows before Chevy launches it. Price should not be way different that the price of the previous model. That means it should be around $26,900 which is an average in this class.
