Discover the Bigger, but Lighter New Chevy Silverado 1500 Pickup

If you’re in the market for a tough, dependable full-size pickup truck, you should consider the new Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Chevy made the Silverado 1500 larger, but lighter by using a mix of aluminum and steel. It still has the big, squared-off fenders and huge grille from the previous model, but it now has functional air curtains for better efficiency. The new Silverado 1500 has more cargo and cabin space than ever, and Poughkeepsie-area drivers can select from a wide range of Silverado 1500 trims at Ruge’s Chevrolet.

You can choose from several powertrain options to get the power and efficiency you want from the new Chevy Silverado 1500. It comes standard with a 285-horsepower V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission that’s great for daily driving. Two V8 motors and a turbocharged four-cylinder engine are also available. Drivers in the Wappingers Falls area who do a lot of towing will prefer the available 420-horsepower V8 engine, which gives the Silverado 1500 the ability to tow up to 12,500 pounds and haul up to 2,590 pounds. Trailering and towing packages are also available for better visibility and control over what you’re towing.

You also have numerous choices in body and cab styles with the new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup. It comes in Regular, Double and Crew Cab models; eight trim choices; and three bed sizes, so you can get one that suits you perfectly. The Silverado 1500 now has nearly three inches more legroom and almost seven inches more floor width in its bed for a best-in-class cargo box volume. People in the Arlington, NY area who want a truck that’s easy to load will like its newly available power-operated tailgate. The new Silverado 1500 has a revised center stack with controls that are handier and easier to reach. It comes standard with six-speaker audio system, a USB port, and the MyLink infotainment system. Available amenities include a sunroof, wireless device charging, a rear-seat entertainment system, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot.

You’ll feel safe and secure in the new Chevy Silverado 1500, which earned the highest rating of Good in five crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It comes standard with several airbags, a rearview camera, and the Teen Driver system. Optional active safety features on the new Silverado 1500 include a head-up display, blind spot monitoring, and forward collision alert. The new Chevy Silverado is a reliable pickup truck with strong capability and a spacious interior. Contact us at Ruge’s Chevrolet to set up a test drive today.
