Gone are the days when power and comfort were regarded as two different aspects of a vehicle. This becomes even more obvious when you go through what the Chevrolet’s new truck will offer. It is about time that the 2017 Chevy Silverado SS hit the market. Although the exact specifications are yet to be disclosed, those rumored offer enough insight to call this upcoming truck nothing but a beast! Let us move onto the specs that have left so many truck fanatics yearning for it.
2017 Chevy Silverado SS – Immaculate Body:
For the 2017 Chevy Silverado SS, the automaker has decided to go with the sternest looks that go side by side with the powerful engine. The best thing is that General Motors are keen to pull that off without entirely revamping the traditional Silverado style. The truck will have a redesign, with a slightly meaner look and an enhanced body. It will be featuring a set of projector lights on the cabin top, with a tow hook both in the front and the back. The wheels on this truck will come with the same design, upgraded to offer an even better driving experience for all terrains.
In addition to that, the tailgate on the 2017 Chevy Silverado SS will allow the users to operate it both manually and electronically. To make the SS look meaner, Chevrolet revamped the head and tail lights as well. The headlights are also rumored to come with LEDs, making sure to offer energy-efficient luminosity.
A Cabin That Enthralls:
The fact that the interior alone has had truck-lovers psyched is nothing to be surprised about. The cabin on the new 2017 Chevy Silverado SS will be offering users a bigger room with a fairly noticeable leg-space both in the front and back. This will be accompanied by elite leather upholstery to make your drives even more special.
This Chevy Silverado will offer a seating for five, but this time, it will be verily different. The automaker has added enough space between the seats so you don’t feel crowded. Also, the fully adjustable function on these seats will make the ride even more comfortable for you. Another thing that really adds to the beauty of the cabin is its unique red seatbelts. No matter what color you pick for your truck, the red seatbelts contrast excellently with it.
Furthermore, Chevrolet also upgraded the dashboard panel on their 2017 Chevy Silverado SS. It will be offering a touch screen, so you can expect lesser buttons in front. The panel is fitted onto a brand new automated dashboard. The new truck will also feature a high-quality sound system to enhance your experience.
2017 Chevy Silverado SS – The Beast Unleashed:
The upcoming Chevy Silverado will contain more power than it has ever featured before. When you go under the hood, you will find a standard V-8 engine on both the drive-trains Chevrolet will offer this year. One of the variants will come with a 6-liter Vortec engine, while the other with a 6.2 liter.
The barely-lower variant of the truck—6.0-liter V-8 engine—is a beast in itself. With around 345 hp and a 380 pound-per-feet of torque, this truck will be among the most powerful trucks on the market. The truck will come with a four-speed auto transmission.
The other—6.2-liter V-8 engine—trim is simply beyond words. With a mind-boggling 420 hp and a massive 460 pound-per-feet of torque, this trim will not have any difficulty running through anything you throw in front of it. To accompany this sort of power, the automaker will be installing an eight-speed auto transmission on this truck.
2017 Chevy Silverado SS – Price, Competition, and Release Date:
There aren’t many vehicles on the market that will be able to match the specifications of the standard trim of this year’s Chevy Silverado. A couple of the closest names are Raptor from Ford and Tundra from Toyota.
The 2017 Chevy Silverado SS is set to be released in the American market any time in the last quarter of 2016. The truck will have a price between $35,000 and $60,000. Although there is a minimum limit, this Silverado is expected to be priced somewhere near the higher end.
