You can pretty much mix'n match components to order the truck you need, in either a 2WD or 4WD configuration:

Body Styles

  • Regular
  • Extended
  • Crew Cab

Box Lengths

  • Short, 5'8"
  • Standard, 6'8"
  • Long/extended, 8'

Light to Heavy Duty

  • 1500 half-ton trucks
  • 2500 and 3500, 3/4- and 1-ton trucks

Alternative Fuel There's a new hybrid truck, but the Silverado is also available in alternative-fuel variations. Trucks equipped with the Vortec 6000 6.0L V-8 come with a dedicated compressed natural gas or bi-fuel system that can run on CNG or gasoline.

Light duty Silverado models with the Vortec 5300 5.3L V-8 give drivers the option of operating them on ethanol/gasoline blends, up to a maximum of 85 percent ethanol.

Silverado Payload Capacity

The Silverado's payload capacities range from 1,295 pounds for the light duty trucks to 4,047 pounds for 2500 models. Fuel Economy

Fuel use projections for the 2WD 1500 Silverado models were in the range of 16 mpg in the city, 20 mpg on the highway. Four-wheel drive vehicles were lower by a few mpg in each class.
