2016 vs. 2017 Silverado 1500: What's the Difference?
Those interested in driving the latest version of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will likely want to know what sets the 2016 and 2017 models apart from each other. They have the same list of 10 configurations of drivetrain, cabin style, and box length, plus the same trim levels. There are some differences to the exterior of the Silverado 1500 for the 2017 model year, however. Most notably, all models now have a capless fuel fill system, with the only exception being those that are special ordered to not have the pickup box. There are also some minor adjustments to the exterior paint colors. While you can no longer get the metallic shades of Autumn Breeze, Tungsten, or Slate Gray, the Silverado 1500 now offers Graphite and Pepperdust metallic shades instead. Those who want the Silverado 1500 1LT will also now be able to choose a P265/65R18 off-road tire.
In terms of trim levels, the only adjustments are to the High Country
Package, which now includes a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable
pedals, the Enhanced Driver Alert Package, and IntelliBeam headlights. In
addition to the capless fuel fill system, all 2017 Silverados now have a
rearview camera. Other updates include the new Teen Driver Mode, the addition
of Low-Speed Mitigation Braking to the Enhanced Driver Alert Package, and the
addition of Android Auto to the Chevrolet MyLink system. Rounding out the
changes, the towing capacity of the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 has increased to
12,500, the class-leading figure.
How the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Has Evolved
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has only been around with its given name for a small fraction of its history. Between 1960 and 1999, it went by the name C/K. When Chevy introduced the Silverado 1500, it came with multiple innovations, including hydroforming to create a strong and lightweight frame. It was also among the first North American full-sized pickups to offer a hybrid, which was introduced in 2004. The second generation of the Chevrolet Silverado arrived in 2007 with a redesigned exterior, suspension, and frame, plus enhanced engine output. The engines in this generation included upgrades like Active Fuel Management. There was a midcycle refresh for the 2010 model year, including an extra cup holder, new interior door handles, and a 6-speed automatic transmission on certain trims.
