Canadian release date for the 2016 Chevy Silverado
All across Canada, Chevy trucks are having one of most successful years in recent memory. This is certainly the case at Don Wheaton and our dwindling stock of Chevy pickups, including the Silverado and the Colorado. With the new model-year, as well as the Canadian release date for the 2016 Chevy Silverado, coming soon, a few details about the new Silverado have surfaced. It would have been easy for Chevy and its design team to simply carry over the full-size pickup truck for another year. That is simply not how the company has become a global leader in almost all classes of the automotive industry.
A large portion of the changes for the 2016 Silverado come with impressive changes to the exterior aesthetic. For a truck that already has captured its segment’s attention with its incredible performance, looking more athletic and bolder may seem like a difficult hill to climb. But, yet Chevy designers can confidently call the refreshening of the 2016 Silverado a success. The hood is more sculpted with bolder character lines drawing the eye to an all new front end. A cleaner and modern-looking headlight design pace the changes to the exterior of the new Silverado. Many of the changes are along the horizontal plane making the truck appear wider, without actually affecting the turning radius.
Also updated for the 2016 Silverado, are the headlights. They have a slimmer look that still light the path ahead. Chevy designers also added additional lighting elements that will help other drivers see the truck in oncoming traffic that will also make for a more refined display.
From a performance aspect, the new Chevy eight-speed transmission will be available on more trims than it was in previous model-years. The addition of the extra gears, as well as improving the timing of the gear changes will make the 2016 Silverado more fuel-efficient and be more suited for towing heavier payloads. If you have been following the Don Wheaton Blog, you may have noticed that we are very excited about the 2016 class’ enhanced integration with smartphone apps through the Chevy MyLink system. This capability will also be carried over to the 2016 Chevy Silverado.
