2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Review
If you keep up-to-date with each new generation of the Silverado 1500, you’ll notice that most of the major changes in this line were made last year. But sometimes minor changes in just the right areas can make a world of difference. While the outside still presents the heavy-duty look of the previous year, the cabin has been moderated to give it a luxurious type of look and feel. This is especially true on the higher-end editions.
