Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The Chevy Silverado 1500 is Chevrolet’s classic pickup truck. This is the light duty version of the Silverado series with a footprint that’s small enough to drive around town or to work, but powerful enough to haul or tow nearly any personal load from a heavy-duty shopping trip to equipment for a vacation in the wilderness. There are plenty of features that make it competent and functional enough for a work truck, but you’ll also get a comfortable interior with all the luxury and convenience features you need to ride in style and comfort. It’s no wonder that the Chevrolet Silverado is one of the best selling pickup trucks in America and in the Bradenton and Tampa area in 2015.

At our Tampa-area dealership, we’re big fans of the Silverado, but so are the critics too:
- Edmunds.com: “The latest Silverado boasts exactly the strengths most buyers have come to expect from full-size Chevy trucks: considerable towing and hauling capabilities and lots of available configurations. But what really sets this generation apart from its forebears is a comfortable and well-built interior and an overall excellent daily driving experience.”
- The Car Connection: “The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado continues with a serious face, impressive powertrain options, a comfortable and refined interior, and the right mix of technology.”
