What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Powertrain

Numerous bed lengths, body configurations, axles and cabs are available from the Silverado options list, as are many interior upgrades and E85-compatible engines.
by KBB (May, 2013)
Those who need the towing power of a diesel engine will have to look to the Silverado HD 2500 or 3500 pickup trucks.
by KBB (May, 2013)
An available smart exhaust brake provides greater control on downward grades and reduced brake pad wear.

Engine

While we expect the 4.3-liter V6 and 4.8-liter V8 to be more than adequate in work-truck applications, we recommend the 5.3-liter V8 engines, some with cast-iron blocks and some with aluminum, but all with Active Fuel Management and variable valve timing.
by KBB (May, 2013)
ACTIVE FUEL MANAGEMENTThe Active Fuel Management system available in four different V8s cuts the operation of four cylinders when they are unneeded and enhances fuel economy.
by KBB (May, 2013)
For the 2500HD and 3500HD, buyers can choose a 6.0-liter gas V-8 engine or a 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V-8 engine.

Kind

Power from the base 4.3-liter V6 is adequate for those hauling light to medium loads and not towing.
by KBB (May, 2013)
To remain relevant, Chevy continues to improve on the Silverado's powerful yet fuel-efficient V8 engines and offers the industry's only full-size hybrid pickup.
by KBB (May, 2013)
Power delivery with each V8 engine is more than ample, and the electronically-controlled 6-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission delivers it smoothly and without hesitation.
by KBB (May, 2013)

Interior

Interiors of the WT, LS and LT are more work-oriented while the LTZ draws inspiration from the SUV lineup.
by cars.com (Jul, 2012)
If you go with the WT, LS or LT trim levels, you get an interior and instrument panel that is simple and straightforward.
by KBB (May, 2013)
The LTZ adds 10-way power-heated front bucket seats, leather seating, power-folding power-adjustable heated mirrors, Bose audio with MP3-compatible 6-disc CD changer and auxiliary input jack and a remote-start system.
by KBB (May, 2013)

Transmission

Standard (6-foot, 6-inch) and long (8-foot) cargo beds are available on regular and extended cabs, while the crew cab gets a short (5-foot, 9-inch) bed.
by cars.com (Jul, 2012)
The work trucks come standard with vinyl seating; cloth or leather is available.
by cars.com (Jul, 2012)
Changes for 2013 are limited to two new exterior colors and the addition of powertrain grade-braking that uses transmission downshifting to ease stress and temperature build-up on the brake rotors.
