2012 Chevrolet Silverado

Today I am going to review the 2012 Chevrolet Silverado light-duty truck. The Chevrolet Silverado and its GMC Sierra twin are both capable trucks that are easy live with. Chevrolet’s design team created a functional truck that can be a daily driver and family vehicle. This model Silverado does a great job balancing the work that a truck should do with the option of luxury available. Here are​ some of the pros and cons of the 2012 Silverado.

This 2012 Silverado 1500 is the 9th generation of Chevrolet pickup​ trucks. Chevrolet offers three different models for this model Chevrolet. The LS and LT are more work concentrated with a little more function which is priced lower. As for the LTZ is the more luxurious package like something you would find in a Cadillac comes with a higher price tag. This Silverado model as tested is the LTZ Premium package which is the highest package at the time priced just under $55,000.

While the Silverado is not a sports car it does handle reasonably well for a two-ton truck. One negative is the 50-foot turning radius that is for some reason new to this body style of Silverado. A new great feature for the 2012 Silverado is the available full-time automatic four-wheel drive system which knows when to switch between two-wheel drive and four-wheel. New for 2012 on the Silverado’s is upgrading for the optional 6.2-liter V8 that puts out an astounding 403 horsepower and 417-foot-pound​​​ of torque. Like Chevrolet said, find new roads. I give this a Matt’s Garage rating of 85 out of 100.
