Chevy recently commemorated its 25th anniversary of the Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle by adding one more vehicle to the PPV lineup: the Silverado 1500. Per Chevy, the pursuit-rated Silverado will arrive in the U.S. later this summer.
The Silverado PPV borrows some key elements from its Tahoe sibling. It has a 5.3-liter V8 and 10-speed automatic transmission that puts forth 355 horsepower. All-wheel drive gives the truck enhanced stability and traction to conquer various terrain and road conditions.
It can also tow 1,100 pounds more than the Tahoe PPV — 9,300 pounds, to be exact. That way, police officers can transport trailers for marine and mounted divisions when necessary.
Chevy has equipped the Silverado PPV with many features for rougher routes, such as a skid plate, locking rear differential, and Rancho shocks. A 2-inch lift enables a 25.9-degree approach angle and a best-in-class 11.4-inch ground clearance rating.
The pursuit-rated Silverado has safety systems and convenient touches to make officers’ drives safer and less stressful. Each Silverado PPV automatically comes with the Chevrolet Safety Assist package. Inside the cabin, the heavy-duty vinyl flooring and rear seats are easy to clean. And law enforcement can leverage remote keyless entry and push-to-start technologies to hit the road faster when urgency is a priority.

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has long been a powerful, capable pickup truck. Now it’s getting even more impressive, thanks to the refreshed 2022 Silverado. This version features advanced technology options, improved towing capabilities, and sharply updated styling.
New for 2022, the Silverado receives an off-road ZR2 trim. The ZR2 comes loaded with features like Multimatic DSSV™ dampers, a tuned suspension, Terrain Mode with one-pedal rock crawl capabilities, and a skid plate package.
One of the most impressive available features on the 2022 Silverado is Super Cruise. This technology will be available on the High Country model and allows hands-free driving on more than 200,000 miles of freeways across North America.
The new standard engine on the 2022 Silverado is the 2.7-liter Turbo High-Output engine. This year, it has 20 percent more torque and has an improved maximum trailering rating of 9,500 pounds. Engineers improved its eight-speed automatic transmission with adjustments to the shifting schedule that make it smoother and more refined.
With an elevated exterior design, the 2022 Silverado will make a bold statement wherever it goes. All Silverado models feature a new front design with lower headlamps. Some models come with wing-shaped daytime running lights.
Design updates extend to the interior with new materials. The cabin is more spacious and has a more premium look and feel with its available, bold 13.4-inch touch screen. Vertical lines have been replaced with horizontal elements that have a floating feel. This helps the Silverado feel more spacious.
The 2022 Silverado will arrive this spring at Greenwood Chevrolet in Fort Meade, Florida. Until then, we’re here to answer any questions you have about this excitingly refreshed truck.
Buying a new truck such as the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will provide you and your family with powerful capabilities, a robust engine, and an abundance of family-friendly features that will make your truck just as effective on the daily commute to school and work as it is doing hard work on the jobsite.
The tailgate and bed of a pickup truck afford you and your family all-new possibilities for both storage and entertainment. Whether you’re loading the bed up for a weekend getaway, using it as a makeshift sleeping surface, or hosting a tailgate to cheer on your favorite team, the bed and tailgate of a truck empower you to do much more.
The high-end horsepower of a pickup truck will help you pass other drivers on the highway or merge at high speeds. The strong torque numbers at low RPMs is what grants trucks the towing ability you need for serious work and serious play.
Several trucks run off the power of diesel, giving you new possibilities for how you might fuel your vehicle.
The highly capable towing numbers offered by trucks, such as the 9,700-pound maximum tow rating of the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500, will not go unappreciated when you’re behind the wheel of a new pickup.
If you need to do any serious towing, you need a truck that can keep up with your needs. Chevrolet recently announced that the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD has increased its maximum towing capacity for the 2021 model year. This, along with some other updates, make it one of the best heavy-duty trucks you can buy.
Last year, the Silverado 3500HD has a maximum towing capacity of 35,500 pounds. For 2021, that limit has increased to 36,000 pounds. Chevrolet said this increase was achieved through changes to the wheels and suspension. You can get this maximum towing capacity with the Work Truck trim with a regular cab, two-wheel drive, the Max Tow Package, dual rear wheels, and the 6.6-liter Duramax® diesel engine.
The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD is also adding some new technology innovations with five new trailering features including an enhanced cargo bed camera view, a trailer length indicator when changing lanes, an improved rear trailer view, a jack-knife alert, and a rear side camera view.
If you are looking for ways to make your Silverado HD stand out from the crowd, there are four new special editions available for 2021. These include the Carhartt Special Edition, the Midnight Edition, the Z71 Sport Edition, and the Z71 Chrome Sport model.
When it comes to towing and hauling, few vehicles can match the capabilities of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Thanks to some new advancements from the team at Chevrolet, it’s going to be even harder for the competition to catch up.
You might recognize the Multi-Flex Tailgate as an exclusive feature for the GMC Sierra pickup truck, where it is known by the MultiPro moniker. GM is now preparing to transfer that feature over to its Silverado line of trucks.
With this advanced tailgate technology, Silverado drivers will have access to six unique tailgate configurations. These configurations will make it easier than ever to store your supplies and cargo in the bed of the Silverado.
The Multi-Flex Tailgate isn’t the only advancement Chevrolet is introducing to the latest Silverado model. Accompanying this new tailgate is a plethora of trailering and towing enhancements for the signature Chevrolet truck.
Thanks to a more refined 2.7-liter Turbo engine, the tow rating of the Silverado 1500 Crew Cab increases to 9,300 pounds. The tow rating of Silverado models equipped with the 3.0-liter Duramax engine also increases to a maximum of 9,500 pounds.
These are only a few of the enhancements that the 2021 model of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is set to receive. Learn more about what this latest Silverado can offer to you by reaching out to our team at Greenwood Chevrolet.
The Chevrolet Silverado is a truly reliable ride, but don’t just take our word for it. U.S. News & World Report recently named the Silverado one of the easiest vehicles to maintain and repair, which means you’ll save money and time when you opt for this pickup. The editors at U.S. News specifically cited the longevity of the Silverado as one of its most prized characteristics.
What does U.S. News mean when it refers to “reliability”? The Silverado and other models named to the Top 10 Easy Cars to Maintain and Repair list were evaluated based on the length of time between service intervals, simplicity of repairs, the space of the engine compartment, and ease of finding replacement parts. The Silverado checks boxes in each of these categories, making it easy for mechanics to fix quickly and efficiently.
“Today’s cars last longer than vehicles of old, have longer service intervals between needed maintenance, and are generally more reliable. They’re also much more complex, with costly components that are more easily replaced than repaired. The typical service interval requires much more than changing the oil,” reads the U.S. News release.
Silverado durability is also due in part to the simplicity of certain mechanical components. For example, many GM models come with naturally aspirated engines, which are less complex than turbocharged powertrains. Plus, the roomy engine compartment makes it easy to access maintenance points, while the steel design is easier to repair than the aluminum found on some competitors’ models.
The judges heaped praise on the trailering systems of the
Sierra and Silverado, which employ numerous cameras to provide multiple views
around the vehicles from the bed, around the outside of the vehicle, and even through
the trailer. A transparent trailer view
in the vehicles uses cameras to create a view representing what’s immediately
behind the trailer, taking the stress out of backing a trailer and eliminating
the need for a second person to help you maneuver. You’ll be able to enjoy a
clear view of what’s behind the trailer on an 8-inch infotainment touch screen on
the truck’s dashboard. This handy technology is more than user friendly — it’ll
give you a sense of security greater than ever before.
The SEMA Show is an annual event that reveals innovative aftermarket
products and celebrates the organization’s partnership with famous automakers.
Plus, it’s where the industry’s best vehicles are crowned with a prestigious
title, based on their segment. These awards are given to just five categories
of vehicles — including trucks.
The Silverado brought home the Truck of the Year title thanks
to Chevy’s dedication to introducing new features and technologies year in and
year out, aimed at constantly elevating user experience in a Silverado. This
includes technology like an available 15-view camera system to make trailering
easier, an available Head-Up Display that can project information to on the
windshield so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road, and two
segment-first rear-seatback storage compartments.
Because of these innovations and new features being added into the Silverado and other Chevy vehicles, Chevrolet continues to show its dedication to bringing only the best to its fans. This has allowed the Silverado to thrive for many years, and the best is still yet to come for Silverado fans.
