GM is continuously working toward improving its mid and full-size pickup truck range, we’re expecting to see the new Chevrolet Silverado in 2018; with a slightly updated design and revised engine range.
The Silverado is still one of the most popular pickups on sale in the U.S., and GM intend to keep it that way by introducing slight upgrades.
There are no confirmed specs as yet, but there are a lot of rumors.
Think evolution rather than revolution; same chassis, large engines and classic design.
2018 Chevy Silverado release date
More details are expected later this year, but it is thought that the new Silverado could debut in the middle of 2017 at one of the large auto shows; Detroit or New York.
Release date: 2017

In terms of the exterior, the new truck will only have minor changes, keeping the overall, bulky shape and appearance that the truck is known for.
The 2018 Silverado will have four doors (double and crew cab versions), a radiator grille that covers most of the front end, a chrome fender and LED fog lights.
2018 Chevy Silverado price
Prices are expected to remain constant, perhaps increase slightly, although that could be dependent on engine specifications. Base model prices will be approximately $30,000 for the 1500 version.

The truck is easily able to accommodate 5 adults; the cabin is spacious and comfortable with lots of little storage areas for the general day to day things that motorists fill their cars with. The interior is also trimmed in high quality leather.
There is MyLink media system with an 8” touchscreen fitted, and the car supports Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and the latest satellite navigation system. There are further options available; USB ports, Bluetooth and satellite radio to name a few. There is also a good level of safety equipment fitted as standard; ABS, airbags, parking sensors and blind-spot monitoring.

2018 Chevy Silverado specs
It is thought that there will be two specifications of engines, a classic 6.0 liter V8, producing 360 BHP and 380 lb/ft of torque and a more advanced 3.6 liter turbocharged V6, producing 305 BHP.
Both engines will be coupled to a 6 or 8-speed auto transmission, but some sources are now saying that thanks to the strict emission laws, the new truck might be fitted with 3.0 liter twin-turbo V6 or perhaps even a diesel.
Latest reports also say that the Silverado will have aluminum body panels to reduce weight (and help emissions) and will be available in only a full, four-wheel drive version.
