The recently revealed all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado pickup truck has been grabbing a lot of headlines lately, but that redesigned full-size truck doesn’t go on sale until late this year. In the meantime, General Motors will sell hundreds of thousands of trucks just like our 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 test vehicle.
Chevy built its first truck in 1918, and our 2018 Chevy Silverado Centennial Edition celebrates 100 years of the brand’s pickups. After driving it both on road and off, it’s safe to say this is the very best Silverado half-ton pickup Chevy has ever built. It competes with the Ford F-150, the Ram 1500, the similar GMC Sierra, the Toyota Tundra, and the Nissan Titan.
Assembled at GM’s truck plant in Silao, Mexico, right alongside the similar GMC Sierra 1500, Chevy offers the 2018 Silverado in an extensive assortment of configurations with several different powertrains. Prices range from just under $30,000 to about $70,000 with a long list of options and accessories. Our four-wheel drive 2018 Chevy Silverado Z71 Crew Cab test vehicle had a sticker price of $61,190.
