2018 Chevy Silverado Concept Specs and Release Date

Monday, March 20th 2017. | Chevrolet


To give updated models for their trucks lineup, GM did it in 2016. The problem is these models were launched back in 2012. It is safe to say right now that their trucks are still capable, but they have to do something because Ram and Ford are going to give massive upgrades for their 2017 vehicles. If they don’t, they will be left behind for sure. Even if there is no official confirmation has been made about the coming of 2018 Chevy Silverado, it is expected to come with all new truck.

The truck can create a big success if they can offer all new design. We must admit that the actual details are still covered. One thing for sure is that the company will provide it with all-aluminum body and some parts will use this material too. GM mentioned a year ago that it would be the right way to start. It is expected to have more rigid and lighter design than the previous model. Besides the new chassis, some parts will be redesigned around the 2018 Chevy Silverado to make it fresh, more modern and able to compete.

2018 Chevy Silverado Interior

We think that the current is still impressive and the company doesn’t have to add much change. It is good if they give all new body design but the design cues should be from the current model. It is the important way to keep it recognizable. It is quite promising to see the 2018 Chevy Silverado with better interior design even when you compare it to the rivals. They should keep their quality and bold design to complete the roomy feel inside.

2018 Chevy Silverado Engine

As you know, Ford is really something when it comes to aluminum body. It is important to use the right gearbox. Probably, they will take ten-speed auto gearbox. We think it is really crucial for the company to offer the same quality aluminum level as Ford, otherwise it only makes the 2018 Chevy Silverado has heavier body design. As far as we know, they used aspirated engines in Silverado lineup as well as diesel for the heavy duty trucks. It seems they wouldn’t use twin-turbocharged V6 engine and 3.6 liter, but it can go with all-new turbocharged diesel V6. The petrol engine can offer 350 and 450 hp as well as up to 400 lb-ft of torque to replace the current engine. For the diesel, it provides about more than 250 hp with more than 25% of less fuel compared to petrol. These engines are designed with the new ten-speed automatic that is used by Camaro ZL1.

Probably the company will release the 2018 Chevy Silverado in the end of 2018 and few months after that, the models are ready to hit the market. The price shouldn’t be too far from the current model.
