“We’re honoured that AJAC has recognized the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Silverado as the best new pickup in Canada,” said Joe De Stefano, Chevrolet Truck Brand Manager, in a recent press release. “This award is testament that the Silverado builds on Chevy Trucks’ legacy of dependability with a dramatic new design, advanced connectivity and enhanced customer-focused technologies that make Chevrolet the fastest growing pick-up truck brand in Canada.”

But what makes the new Silverado the best? Maybe its solid, long-lasting construction, and impressive V8 engine that is certainly up for towing and hauling serious loads. And with cutting edge efficiency technology like direct injection, cylinder deactivation when the truck isn’t loaded or towing, and continuously variable valve timing, this truck also offers the best V8 fuel economy of any pickup with just 10.4 L/100km in 5.3-litre models. It also offers a segment topping 420 horsepower with the available 6.2-litre V8 engine.
