2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Review

For years Chevrolet's been known for building the most dependable longest-lasting full-size pickups on the road. But Chevrolet never stands still in its ongoing commitment to building the most capable and advanced pickup. Powerful and efficient – It’s the 2012 Silverado! The available 5.3 Liter V8 engine offers impressive fuel economy no competitive full-size pickup can beat. The Vortec 6.2L V8 delivers 403 horsepower and awesome 417 pound feet of torque. And the Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo Diesel can run on B20 biodiesels! There’s a surprising amount of room inside Silverado Extended Cab. The LT and LTZ model come standard with large full-drop power rear side windows and cavernous storage areas for front seat passengers. The LTZ model offers heated leather-appointed front seats and an exclusive woodgrain appearance instrument panel that’s located down and forward to provide added space and a commanding view of the road! It’s not just the capacity of Silverado’s cargo box that’s impressive an easily removable tailgate four cargo tie-downs stake pockets and two- tier loading capability are all standard. For the ultimate in cargo-area versatility there’s the available integrated Cargo Management System. Be As Thorough In Choosing Your Pickup As We Were In Building It the 2012 Chevrolet Silverado.
