Miami Lakes Chevy is the place for consumers to check out the 2016 Chevy Silverado. The 2016 Chevy Silverado is such a mechanical work of genius and innovation that some people are talking about reclassifying it as not just a full sized pickup, but a full sized pickup truck turned into a work of art.
Pleasing to the Eye
The first thing consumers will notice is that the 2016 Chevy Silverado is one good looking truck. The grill is modern, with no frills—nothing but utility and engineering. The headlights are smaller than the designs of yesteryear, plunging forward ahead of the trends.
The contour lines on the body help the eye carefully traverse the vehicle, being sure to signal when a wheel well is coming up so that the eye has time to shift without being interrupted in its journey.
The way the front windows and rear windowpane aren’t tinted like the rear passenger windows is nice because it shows how much room there is inside the 2016 Chevy Silverado.
A Strong Build
Let’s take a moment to talk about how strong of truck the 2016 Chevy Silverado really is, because there are so many automotive products on the market right now that are just plain weak.
First and foremost the 2016 Chevy Silverado is made out of high strength steel, not aluminum like some of its competitors. Think about that for a second, how other full sized pickups are using aluminum in much of their production.
If you think this is somehow a good thing, ask a motorcyclist why aluminum parts are cheaper but they keep going out of their way to buy high strength steel parts that are more expensive.
They’ll tell you because it’s stronger, more durable, and on a motorcycle if something fails the driver is very likely to be severely injured.
So is the driver of a truck any less likely to face injury due to aluminum? It’s not so black and white as that. If something on a truck fails the truck stops moving, but if something else impacts the truck and the aluminum doesn’t stand the test of kinetic energy then the driver, and even the occupants, could be seriously injured.
That’s something the makers of the 2016 Chevy Silverado took very seriously when designing the best full sized pickup on the market today.
Because they don’t want to have it on their conscious that they might have contributed to unsafe conditions, and they also know that many of their consumers buy their products for peace of mind. That’s right, peace of mind, not aluminum that is easier to fabricate than steel, but less resilient.
The 2016 Chevy Silverado engineers weren’t trying to make the lightest full sized pickup on the market, so they weren’t so concerned with trying to use lesser, easier to forge material.
One of the reasons this wasn’t on their mind is because who buys a full sized pickup for its lightness? Seriously, who? It just kind of doesn’t make sense.
Not that anyone involved in making the 2016 Chevy Silverado thinks they know better than the next person when it comes to living their lives, but they do know that their goal was to make the strongest pickup, and then the consumers would decide which was better. And the consumers have decided.
Competitive Engine Options
The 2016 Chevy Silverado is made for power, and it’s not just the steel. The 2016 Chevy Silverado comes with three options for engines, something that discerning consumers will really appreciate in a world where so few real options present themselves.
First is the 4.3L V6 EcoTec3, which summons 285 horsepower, creating 305 foot pounds of torque making it best in class for its ability to get the wheels moving. And speaking of getting its wheels moving, the 2016 Chevy Silverado can tow 7600lbs!
That’s a lot of weight! And here is the best part, the fuel economy: 24 miles to the gallon on the highway. That’s so important, that every last drop of gasoline be used to the best of the trucks abilities, even in a full sized pickup.
The engineers knew this when they designed it, they knew that the public had been calling out for a full sized pickup that could hold its own in any situation and still not slam their wallet every time they went to the pump.
And with the environment limping as badly as it is right now in what some scientist are alleging is a global warm up, it’s important to be cognizant of the gasoline our trucks use.
The next option up for consumer choice is the 5.3L V8 EcoTec3, with 355 horsepower and 383 foot pounds of torque, along with a towing capacity of 11,000 pounds; it’s a real contender. But the best part, again, is the fuel economy. Because this bigger engine is in a different class, and its 23 mile to the gallon on the highway gas mileage is the best in its class. That’s really something to think about for consumers who are eyeing the 2016 Chevy Silverado. And there is one more.
The 6.2L V8 EcoTec3 can rev up 420 horsepower, 460 foot pounds of torque, and tow 12,000 whole pounds, making it the best in its class for towing. The fuel economy of this big engine drops a little bit from the other two to a still respectable 21 miles on the highway per gallon.
So consumers will have to really weigh what they plan on using the truck for. Chevy bets that no matter what the auxiliary uses the 2016 Chevy Silverado will have, the main purpose for most consumers will be the dirty four letter word that the callow of heart fear so much: Work.
The 2016 Chevy Silverado is the Work Horse of the Future
The future is now, and so the time to drive a vehicle that can handle the demands of the US economy is now. So head over to Miami Lakes Chevy and check out the 2016 Chevy Silverado.
Besides all of the power, design, technological innovations, and engineering, there is something else about the big truck that pulls people in—patriotism. Because in a nation where people are still struggling, it’s the people who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty who are going to rebuild things, and build on legacies of the past, pushing this great nation into the future.
Be a part of the solution in this nation and make the 2016 Chevy Silverado your next work truck.
