With a broad range of body styles and proven, fuel-efficient powertrains, the 2013 Silverado 1500 can tackle just about any job a truck owner can imagine -- from hauling equipment and a crew to a job site to towing a camper for a family vacation.
Silverado 1500 offers a full lineup of pickups to meet almost any need, including WT, LS, LT, XFE and LTZ models, as well as the unique Silverado 1500 Hybrid.
Silverado 1500 models are available in three cab styles -- regular, extended and crew cab -- as well as three cargo box lengths: 5 foot 8 inches (short), 6 foot 6 inches (standard) and 8 foot (long).
Silverado's full-size truck architecture enables a smooth ride and confident handling, without compromising the capability that is so important to pickup customers. A lineup of powerful small-block V-8 engines and six-speed automatic transmissions complement the strong chassis by enabling a maximum payload capacity of 1,937 pounds.When equipped with the available max trailering package and the 6.2L V-8, the Silverado 1500 can tow up to 10,700 pounds.
Two new colors are added for 2013: Deep Ruby Metallic and Blue Topaz Metallic. Design details include a power dome hood, flared rear fenders, and vertically stacked reflector-optics headlamps.
Silverado models are powered by an efficient lineup of proven engines, led by Vortec small-block V-8s, also including advanced technologies such as Active Fuel Management (AFM) and variable valve timing (VVT) to optimize performance and efficiency. Three FlexFuel engines are available -- and partnered with fuel-saving AFM -- giving customers the choice of powering their truck with E85 ethanol, gasoline or a combination of both fuels.
