According to current standards, today’s Silveren can not be considered old due to the fact that it was introduced not so long ago in 2014. The only drawback of this truck is the touch of the modern era. The architecture on which is built is quite old and it needs some improvements. This is about to happen with the Chevrolet Silverado 2018 (according to some sources it could happen in early 2018)
2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 Design
After obtaining a restyled front in 2016 and new grid shutters in 2017, we expect the appearance of the Silverado 2018 to remain unchanged. Given all the changes that the pickup has undergone in recent years, we do not expect that there will be a problem with buyers. The interior should also remain the same.
Being a postponement, we also expect that the standard features remain unchanged. If this is true, its WT fit (the base model) will be delivered with 17-inch steel wheels, xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, bed lighting, air conditioning, cruising , Vinyl seats, sturdy rubber floors and a 4.2-inch color audio system.

As for other vans, the different taxis of Silverado 1500 have different IIHS safety ratings, and this is expected to continue into the new model year. All versions of the Silverado have received “Good” ratings in all crash tests, except overlaps, where the extended cab model has an “Acceptable” rating and the crew taxi gets a “marginal” rating. We hope that these ratings will continue into the new year.
There are some optional advanced security bits available on the Silverado 1500: rear view mirror, lane departure warning and intervention, and a front-end collision warning with low-speed emergency braking.
2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 Rivals and Power
The US truck market is extremely competitive. Especially if medium-sized large trucks are considered, Americans may have very few choices, but options are full of potential and choosing someone is extremely difficult. Surprisingly, or maybe not, choices are available from the top three US brands. Locking horns with this Chevy Silverado 1500 2018, we can expect to see some Ford F-150 and some Dodge Rams that are just as good and can prove extremely competitive. Expect a close fight between these three and once the latest versions of the three kinds, a winner can be decided.
General Motors really has a great competition. Their 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine installed inside this Chevy Silverado 1500 2018 is waiting for a powerful response to the Ford F-150 EcoBoost units and the Dodge Ram EcoDiesel units. This 5.3L V8 can grow up to 355 HP with 383 lbs. Ft of torque.
Comparing with the Ford engine, the Silverado 1500 engine has a top hand of 30 HP while it has a higher acceleration than the Dodge engine.
Price and Release Date
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2018 has no output date yet. However, according to last year’s schedule, we estimate a sale date at the end of the summer. GM tends to release Crew Cab versions first, followed a month or two later by regular and double cabs.
We do not expect big price changes when the new Silverado is launched. For reference, the current model starts at $ 28,780 and is $ 56,120 (including shipping). This would put it in the view of the Ford F-150 ($ 28,025 to $ 55,695), Ram 1500 ($ 27,715 to $ 54,695) and Toyota Tundra ($ 31,215 to $ 51,225).
