The name Silverado 1500 only dates to 1999. But the history of Chevrolet’s full-size pickup, like that of its rival Ford F-150, stretches back for decades. Today’s models, with their car-like interiors, are much more comfortable than older trucks. But truck-like functionality and durability remain.
Buyers choose from a nearly infinite array of cab styles, drivetrains, bed lengths and options—the most expensive Silverado 1500 costs nearly twice as much as the least expensive model.
