The outgoing Silverado’s weakest point was undoubtedly the interior. That’s in the past. The completely redesigned and far more luxurious and premium interior boasts a handsome horizontal instrument panel and a more functional center console with an optional electronic shift controller. A 13.4-inch touchscreen and a 12.3-inch digital configurable instrument cluster are standard, as is Google Assistant, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay compatibility. A head-up display is also available.
Depending on trim, owners will get an array of luxurious features. The top-of-the-line High Country, for example, comes standard with open-pore wood trim, leather seating surfaces, and stainless steel speaker grilles with a Bose audio system.
A long list of driver-assist features are available including upgraded adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert, lane keep assist, automatic emergency braking, and front pedestrian braking. The most important new optional system is the Super Cruise hands-free technology. Currently, there’s over 200,000 miles of compatible roads in North America where drivers can fully use the tech that relies on LiDAR and a small camera located on top of the steering wheel capable of determining where the driver is looking.
