With its excellent powertrains and off-road potential, the 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 is the adventurous option. Before you take one of these light-duty trucks for a test run, our buying guide helps you figure out what to expect from the latest model.

What’s new for the 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500?


After a major refresh for the 2022 model year, the 2023 truck won’t be too different. However, the Duramax diesel powertrain does receive a significant power bump, gaining 28 horsepower and 35 pound-feet of torque, supplying a total of 305 horses and 495 pound-feet of torque. This sturdy diesel engine is available for the Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ, and High Country trim models. It’s an excellent choice for drivers who want a performance that’s both efficient and heavy on the tow-friendly torque.

Which powertrains will be available for the 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500?


Silverado 1500 shoppers can choose from four engine options. Availability depends on which trim model you select, though most trim models can be upgraded with one of these powerful engines.

  • Turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine (310 horsepower, 430 lb-ft of torque)
  • 5.3L V8 (355 hp, 383 lb-ft)
  • 6.2L V8 (420 hp, 460 lb-ft)
  • Turbo 3.0L six-cylinder diesel engine (305 hp, 495 lb-ft)

The standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine is linked with an eight-speed transmission, and the rest come standard with a 10-speed automatic transmission for improved mileage at high speeds. While rear-wheel drive is standard, you can add traction-boosting four-wheel drive to any Silverado 1500.

How can I configure my 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500?


As usual, the Silverado 1500 is very versatile. When you build your own, you can choose between three cabins (two-door regular, four-door, extended Double Cab, and four-door crew), three bed sizes (5-foot-8-inch, 6.5-foot, and 8-foot), and nine trim models.

The nine trim models (WT, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, ZR2, LTZ, and High Country) provide you with different levels of interior comfort and rugged performance. For example, the Custom Trail Boss, LT Trail Boss, and ZR2 are designed to help you hit the trail, with each adding to the last with more rugged equipment. For luxury, check out the LTZ and High Country trim models, which deliver upscale features, such as a power tailgate, blind-spot monitoring, enhanced LED headlights, and Bose premium audio system.
