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.
