2017 Chevrolet Silverado Interior

While the exterior gets so much attention, it doesn’t mean that the company neglect the interior part. The cabin will get various enhancements that make it slightly different to the previous models. The new 2017 Chevy Silverado will likely get interior updates as well, helping it stay in the hunt with the all-new F-150 and very nice Ram 1500. When it was introduced for 2014, the current Silverado brought exceptional levels of interior comfort and refinement to the fullsize-pickup segment, and any updates will help it remain competitive. Safety features will be upgraded to complete the new heads up display for its cockpit. Driver will find it very easy to check the car’s status.

2017 Silverado 1500 Engine

As we mentioned above, the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado will get serious engine upgrade. It is expected that the improvements around the engine would be helpful to offer improved output. Rumor has it that a 6.2 liter V8 engine is a strong candidate for standard engine, it boasts higher power output with the best fuel economy.

While we don’t know if we believe it’ll happen for 2017, such a motor might give Ford’s EcoBoost engine a run for its money. GM might want to use the newly introduced 3.0L V-6 engine of the Cadillac CT6. In that application, the engine will make about 400 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, but retuned for less peak power, the engine could make an F-150–matching 420 lb-ft in the Silverado.
