Since its introduction in 1998, the Chevy Silverado has been a critical part of Chevrolet’s line of pickup trucks — and the 2013 model is no different. Though this pickup truck can easily hold its own against the Ford F-150 or the Ram 1500, the true advantage of the 2013 Silverado is its versatility in catering to all kinds of customer needs.
Several powertrains are available including a gas-electric hybrid option and various bed sizes — from 5’8” to 6’6” — for all types of cargo needs. Options include a 5.3L V8 engine capable of 315 hp, all the way up to a 6.2L flex-fuel V8 capable of an astounding 403 hp. Despite the fact that some truck enthusiasts might be skeptical of the performance capabilities of the hybrid genre, the gas-electric V8 Silverado is nothing to scoff at. It’s capable of 332 hp, 367 lb-ft of torque, and can pull up to 6100 pounds. Hybrid pickup drivers will also enjoy an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, which makes the hybrid a smart buy.
The interior cabin provides ample space for the driver and passengers, and the rear seat can be folded for extra storage. The Silverado’s redesigned cabin features an array of advanced technology like standard OnStar telematics and Chevy infotainment systems to create a refined, luxury driving experience; though the 2013 Silverado can be used solely for work purposes, individuals looking for a classy ride around town are going to find a lot to love in this pickup.
