Chevrolet has something to celebrate when it comes to pickups – sales of Chevy pickups are up 32 percent so far this year and most of its being led by the new Chevrolet Colorado and the brand’s extremely successful Silverado.
In order to strengthen the momentum that the pickups are having, Chevy is announcing some updates for the 2016 model year of the Silverado 1500.
“The redesigned 2016 Silverado will build on Chevy Trucks’ legacy of dependability. It will feature a more muscular appearance and offer new customer-focused technologies,” said Sandor Piszar, marketing director for Chevy Trucks.
“New front end designs with bold horizontal elements, sculpted hoods and dramatic lighting reflect the strength and refinement that have helped make Silverado the fastest-growing full-size pickup brand this year.”
Other upgrades include an 8-speed automatic transmission, updated version of the Chevy MyLink system that now supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and more.
