The Silverado 1500 comes in a variety of trim levels, and you can also pick the cab size configuration to suit your preferences. You have the choice for a regular cab with a standard or long box, double cab with a standard box, or a crew cab with a short or standard box. Which is the right choice for you?
- The WT (MSPR of $31,525) comes standard with a 4.2-inch color screen with a USB port and an auxiliary jack. You have the option to upgrade to a 7-inch touch screen for Chevy MyLink. A 4-speaker system delivers the music you want to hear.
- The LS (MSRP is $33,550) has Chevy MyLink on a 7-inch screen as a standard feature. Instead of a 4-speaker system, you will find a 6-speaker system for a little extra resonance. Bluetooth allows you to pair compatible smartphones and electronics to the truck. A 3-month trial of OnStar Guidance Plan is included, and remote keyless entry is also standard.
- The LT (MSRP is $37,370) places Chevy MyLink on an 8-inch screen, while built-in navigation is an available feature. SiriusXM Satellite Radio will play beautifully on the sound system, or you can break out your favorite CDs on the CD player. You can also add LED fog lights and Rear Park Assist to this trim for extra safety.
- The LTZ71 (MSRP is $39,280) is a beauty on 18-inch aluminum wheels. A trailering package is standard. It also has its own Z71 appearance package. Because this trim is made for off-roading, it has a premium air filtering system. The 36 mm stabilizing bar also helps with off-roading.

Safety and Tech
The Teen Driver technology in each model gives parents peace of mind. Activate this feature before handing the keys to your teen. At the end of each driving trip, you will see a summary report—this will tell you about any driver assistance technology that was activated and if speed limits were obeyed. The technology also will also mute any audio until front seat belts are clicked. On the LT trim and higher, there is a rear view camera and the option of rear park assistance. Each trim has daytime running lights for your convenience and safety.
Technology is abundant in the Silverado 1500. You have Bluetooth connectivity on the LS trim and higher to stream music and make calls. Remote keyless entry is also on the LS trim, so you can leave the hefty key ring in your pocket or purse. Pair your phone to the Chevy MyLink to keep control over select features from a 4.2-inch touch screen (larger options are available).
