How Chevrolet Will Upgrade The Silverado To Be A Better Ford F-150 Fighter

Trucks / 34 Comments

It's go time.

Only one year after the current Chevrolet Silverado launched, Ford revealed its all-new F-150 full-size pickup truck. While Chevy received much praise for its Silverado, it was the F-150 that represented some of the most significant advances in the segment. The one-two punch of its turbocharged EcoBoost engines and extensive use of aluminum made the Silverado (and its GMC Sierra twin) appear somewhat dated. That's why next year's refresh is very important.


What can we expect from the 2016 Silverado? Automotive News reports that the freshened Silverado will receive "a larger grille, lower air dam and revised headlights, including the possible addition of LED daytime running lights." Also expect some changes to the hood and taillights. Will all of that be enough though? Probably yes. The reason being is that Silverado has been a success since the day it launched. In fact, "sales rose some 14 percent this year through May, following a 10 percent gain last year." Will there be any powertrain upgrades for '16? That we don't know just yet, but we'll know soon enough because the facelifted Silverado will go on sale before the end of this year.
