Chevrolet Silverado, premiered in Texas
The State of Lone Star today held premiere of the new pickup Chevrolet 2016, Silverado, which was held at the State Fair of Texas. The updated model impresses with its new look, which is definitely suited her and emphasizes the most important updates to the design changes of the pickup. We are waiting for a logical continuation of one of the most “American” of bodies in automotive history.
According to the brand, “Chevy”, the major visual changes have been made with the help of “advanced lighting technology,” whatever that meant. It is our understanding that sounds in two ways, the first option is simple and predictable, to pick-up Chevrolet installed a new lighting fixtures, but to draw attention was concocted this elaborate concept of advanced technology lighting … The second option is more difficult, perhaps the design of the car body is somehow applied special lighting, promote the creation of the most attractive forms of the truck … Whatever it was, on the face of two facts, first,Chevy could attract attention, the second pick-up really looks refreshed and very attractive.
To be more precise the new Chevy present deeper insertion falshreshetki radiator modified turn signals and brake lights, “wrapped” around the corners of the truck and horizontal elements of the chrome grille (or black, if you do they will be more preferable).Model Z71 – monotone version, one color for all elements of the car body. Regardless of whether you will be able to order Z71 from the States or not, the overall feel of the car such, we have a car with a more “muscular” body with a better looking front panel.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto waiting inside.
We climb into the cab, and here we will be met by new additional system MyLink, which now supports Apple CarPlay along with Auto All Android. Also, the new farmer’s truck offers more opportunities for safety and convenience, such as Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist and IntelliBeam, e-beam assistant.
Wireless charging the phone is available to complete the LT and LTZ in both Double Cab and Crew Cab models, while the bucket seats with improved lateral support are standard High Country.
8-speed gearbox is available with the 5.3-liter V8.
Another big news is that the 8-speed transmission is now available on another model. Since there are only three engine options to choose from, it’s nice to know, the box will be available as standard on the LTZ, LTZ / Z71 and High Country with both the 6.2-liter V8, and a 5.3-liter engine.
Standard engine power has not changed, and mostly Chevrolet did not offer anything new in this respect, all the same, except for the powertrain options. The basic 4.3-liter V6 engine has 285 hp Power-and 414 Nm of torque, it is said that he has one of the strongest in the segment of torque V6.
5.3-liter V8 is available 355 hp and 458 Nm of torque, spending 10 l / 100 km on the highway and is the most economical V8 pickup truck segment. 6.2-liter V8 still has 420 hp and 624 Nm of torque, is nothing new about it is impossible to say.
