Chevrolet Silverado is setting new standards
|   Saturday, June 08, 2013
Just when people started thinking that the trend of making the big cars was fading away from the automotive industry here is another surprise from Chevrolet. In recent trends it has been seen that the fuel prices have been going high. That has forced the makers to curb down on the size of the cars to improve the fuel efficiency of the cars pertaining to low weights of the cars.

But Chevrolet thinks a little differently. When all the other makers like the Ram and Ford are making the pickup trucks smaller and giving them more refinement to make them better cars, Chevrolet has thought of making the Chevrolet Silverado larger in size.
The car has a better suspension and better dynamics. This certainly looks better on paper and this is a great move on the part of the producer.

The car has a bigger body. The car looks stiff and muscular. The car could be run on V6 and V8 engines. The V6 engine is about 4.3 litre engines and the V8 is a better powered 6.2 litre engine. The car has been designed in between the two and comprises of a 5.3 litre V8 engine. The engine generates 355 BHP of power that can take the car up to 60 miles per hour in just 6.7 seconds.

The car has a lot more to offer than just the power. The interiors are very nicely done with padded doors and vinyl stitched dash board. The chrome buttons on the door pad make it even better. The seats are very comfortable. To add to that the steering wheel of the car is slightly towards the right of the driver. This gives him a better feel of the cornering effect.

The behaviour of the truck is like a car on the road however the nose seems too long. This adds to the security features of the car that also include a lot. The brake is firm and stops the car better than the previous version. The cornering control is definitely better. The car is equipped with a lane change assistance system. The sound of the car is low and soothing.

However the car is not all good. There are a few flaws as well in this car. The six speed gear box of the car looks to be faulty at times. The change of gears is not the most pleasant thing in this car. The high cowl of the car and thick roof pillars add to the disgrace of the car's weight. The car looks a bit heavy for the current time period.

The car is still a class apart and has set new standards. The car is definitely better than the Ram 1500 and the Ford F150 which is not that great to look at. The car might range somewhere in the mid of the $30,000. Still it would be better to test the three competitors at the same time and then rate them accordingly.
