An updated 2017 Chevrolet Silverado has been spied testing by Truck Trend in Michigan. The new Silverado will feature a more up-to-date front fascia, a new rear end and taillights and some minor yet necessary powertrain updates to help keep it competitive with Ram’s and Ford’s offerings.
The spy shots show a Silverado wit a camouflaged front and rear end. The front end will be redesigned to maximize aerodynamic efficiency and will likely include new headlights, a different hood and a new grille. Truck Trend says the whole look will help the Silverado appear more modern, and from what we’re seeing in the photos, we’d have to agree.
The biggest changes to the 2017 Silverado won’t be immediately apparent to onlookers. New powertrain offerings could be in store including the 10-speed automatic transmission General Motors is co-developing with Ford, and a Duramax diesel to help compete with products like the Ram EcoDiesel. Truck Trend mentioned a twin-turbocharged V6 could be in store, but we’re not sure if Chevy will offer that option just yet.
