You may not find each of these important to your specific needs, but reading through each point can help you discover areas that you did not think were necessary beforehand. Let’s take a look at the top amenities and areas of importance to pickup drivers, and see which ones resonate with you and your unique needs.

  • Power and Performance: This may be obvious to most readers, but it is still worth visiting. More than any other vehicle segment, pickup trucks are purchased for their ability to get tough jobs done, with ease. If you are considering a pickup truck purchase specifically for its high potential for capability, then you will want to ensure that the specific truck you choose can get the job done right. For a powerful pickup, there is nothing that beats the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD model. With enough muscle to tow over 23,000 pounds with ease, this pickup truck giant offers 765 lb.-ft. of torque for unparalleled performance. The Silverado 3500HD pickup is such a contender in its segment, that is was named the Most Dependable Heavy Duty Large Pickup, as well as the Highest Ranked Large Heavy Duty Pickup in Initial Quality, by JD Power. Bottom line – if power and performance matters to you, there is no better choice than the Chevy Silverado.
  • In-Vehicle Amenities: While this was not always a top priority of pickup truck buyers, a well-equipped interior cabin is now a must-have on the list of most buyers. With both the Chevy Colorado and Chevy Silverado, drivers have plenty of options to choose from in order to get the most out of their pickup. From lush leather upholstery, to 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity on the go, the Chevrolet pickup truck lineup has it all. Just because your truck works hard all day long, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be able to enjoy life’s simple pleasures from the comfort of your pickup’s cabin.
