For over 100 years, Chevrolet has been manufacturing and selling dependable, hard-working trucks for work and for recreation. The 2018 Chevy Silverado has already gained a reputation for being a workhorse with a long life that brings power and performance to every job it tackles. In fact, this is the third time in a row that this vehicle has won the J.D. Power award for “most dependable large, heavy-duty pickup.” With excellent and efficient fuel economy from its V8 engine, powerful V8 horsepower, and impressive towing and torque power, it’s not surprising that the Chevy Silverado achieved best-in-class in so many performance, efficiency, and durability categories.
The Silverado also offers an impressive line-up of accessories for the exterior, interior, and truck beds on its models. With so many options for customization, it’s easy to make your Chevy Silverado the perfect truck for what you need. The 2018 Chevy Silverado also makes a line-up of special edition models. Whether you’re looking to increase your work performance or invest in a recreational powerhouse, the 2018 Chevy Silverado has you covered.
Safety is especially important when it comes time to use your heavy-duty pickup truck for towing. Thankfully, the 2018 Chevy Silverado has you covered. A combination of advanced braking technology helps give drivers the control they need when driving a powerful truck and towing and hauling serious loads. The Silverado features diesel exhaust brake technology to reduce the level of braking required to be applied while braking downhill. There is also a trailer brake controller that is integrated into the truck brake system. This combination gives more control over driver’s brake system for both your truck and your trailer or hitch. Braking assist also signals the truck’s braking system to automatically apply transmission downshifts while going downhill.
The disk brakes and the duralife rotors on the 2018 Chevy Silverado resist corrosion and warping, making the brakes perform better while they last longer.
The featured Echomaster trailering camera system is made up of four cameras that remove blindspots for the drivers view and allow for greater control and safety when hauling and trailering. The Echomaster also makes reversing and aligning your truck and its trailer easier and safer. The rear-vision camera on the trailer also features lamps that shed light in dark areas in the rear of the truck.
With 445 horsepower, an available torque of 910 LB.-FT, and a max available towing of 23,300 LBS, the performance of this vehicle is unmatched. Whether you plan to use your truck for work or recreation, the 2018 Chevy Silverado can tow and haul your equipment safely and efficiently. With new towing and hauling advancements, large hauls are safer than ever with reduced shift cycling thanks to an available mode for automatic transmission adjustments – even on steep grades.
Never worry about the dangers of an uncontrollable trailer with Stabilitrak with Trailer Sway Control. This feature monitors the trailer and will automatically apply the brakes on the vehicle and trailer if needed, keeping your heavy equipment on track and in-line. With Hill Start Assist, performance and safety are even further enhanced as the vehicle will automatically hold the brakes to allow you additional time to change between the brake and accelerator pedals to help reduce the dangers of swaying backwards. But enhanced performance doesn’t end there! Also included is Digital Steering Assist, which makes towing and hauling heavy loads even easier with advanced controls designed to increase the truck’s stability and handling on the highway.
