The trusty Silverado is back with some minor changes for the 2018 model year. You’ll recognize most of the features on the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. There are some new options and standard features, however, and even some new colors. 2018 has some new ways to configure your favorite Chevy truck to meet all your needs.
There are several packages and configurations that are now available across more 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 trims. You’ll be able to get the eAssist mild hybrid system package on the LT and LTZ trims. The MyLink radio system will also be included on the base WT truck starting in the 2018 model, as well. The radio system includes a touchscreen that’s at least seven inches diagonally. It has the usual AM/FM radio and digital clock, and it also supports Bluetooth streaming and smartphone compatibility. More upscale trims will still offer bigger screens and more capabilities compared to the WT infotainment system.
There’s also more standard safety equipment on the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Every Silverado 1500 now has a standard rearview camera to help you reverse safely. The Silverado also has standard Teen Driver Mode now. Teen Driver is a system that lets parents select a key fob specifically for their young driver to use. When the car is turned on with the teen’s key, the truck will automatically restrict certain activities and monitor others. If you’re worried about your young driver’s safety habits, you can set the key to mute the radio until all the occupied seat belts are fastened, for example. You can go over speed warnings and near-incidents with your teen later, too, to create safer driving habits. If your teen driver is already a safe, excellent driver, you can use your parental PIN to disengage the mode.
The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 also have some technology to make it more efficient on the highway. There are active aero shutters in the grilles that automatically close when you hit 55 mph. Closing the shutters reduces drag on your truck, and makes it more fuel-efficient at highway speeds. Your newly aerodynamic truck can also come in two new colors: Cajun Red Metallic and Havana Metallic. Additionally, the Custom trim is finally available for crew cab trucks, not just double cabs.
