2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Custom

2015 SILVERADO CUSTOM: BACK TO BASICS, WITH STYLE

• $33,820 starting price for a well-equipped double-cab V-8

CHICAGO – Chevrolet takes aim at the heart of the pickup market with the Silverado Custom, which offers Chevy Truck capability and dependability in a stylish package, priced within reach of many truck customers.

'The economic recovery has led to booming sales of high-end pickups like the Silverado High Country,' said Sandor Piszar, marketing director for Chevy Trucks. 'But there are also millions of customers in the heart of the market who want a great looking, well-equipped truck at an affordable price. The Silverado Custom is a truck they can be proud to own and proud to drive.'

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 CustomBased on the popular double-cab Silverado LS, the Custom package adds 20-inch aluminum wheels, chrome bumpers, a body-colored top cap above the front bumper, and chrome mirror caps and door handles. It also features four full doors for easier access to the front and rear seats, a 40/20/40 cloth front seat, tilt steering wheel, cruise control, power windows and door locks, and Chevy MyLink with 4G LTE WiFi.

Most Silverado Custom customers are expected to choose the available 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8, with 355 horsepower and the best fuel economy of any V-8 pickup, up to 23 mpg EPA estimated highway. Silverado Custom also will be available with the 4.3L EcoTec3 V-6, with the most torque of any standard V-6.

All Silverado EcoTec3 engines are direct descendants of the original Small Block Chevy V-8. They feature advanced technologies such as direct fuel injection, continuously variable valve timing and Active Fuel Management, which enable four-cylinder operation during light-load driving for improved efficiency. These engines also benefit from more than 60 years – and more than 100 million engines' worth – of continuous improvement.


Like all Silverado 1500s, the Custom uses a hydroformed, boxed, high-strength steel frame and a cab structure that makes extensive use of high-strength steels. The Silverado 1500 is the only pickup to receive the highest possible 5-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration changed its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year. Silverado also features a roll-formed steel box, which is lighter and stronger than traditional stamped boxes.

Priorities of these heart-of-the-market customers play to the Silverado Custom's strength. According to Chevrolet research, these customers:
◾Expect to keep their trucks for a long time.
◾Want a truck that is as dependable as they are.
◾Prefer a stylish exterior and a clean, functional interior.
◾Want a vehicle that will be easy to maintain and inexpensive to repair.

'These men and women rely on their trucks every day, and they value things that are tried and true,' said Piszar. 'The Silverado Custom is from the most dependable, longest-lasting family of full-size pickups on the road, and we think it is a great choice for hard-working truck customers.'
