An updated interior represents the biggest change in the full-size, V8-powered pick-up for 2023
GM Specialty Vehicles has revealed its Chevrolet Silverado lineup for 2023, which sees the Trailboss swapped out for the all-new ZR2.
Pricing now starts at $128,000 for the LTZ Premium, and $133,000 for the range-topping ZR2, both before on-road costs.
As a V8-powered, full-size American pick-up, the Silverado faces competition from the likes of the RAM 1500 and Ford F-150, the latter of which arriving later this year as an official Ford Australia import.
Changes on the exterior of the utes are subtle, with the re-designed front fascia getting a pair of new daytime running lights.
The biggest changes have taken place inside, with a 13.4-inch infotainment screen now sitting beside the 12.3-inch digital cluster.
Beneath the bonnet sits the same 6.2-litre petrol V8 engine in both models, which produces 313kW and 624Nm. This is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
At the top of the Silverado range for 2023 sits the all-new Silverado ZR2, which gets a plethora of off-road kit to enhance its capability.
The ZR2 gets lifted suspension with Multimatic DSSV passive variable off-road dampers, front and rear locking differentials, 33-inch all-terrain tyres, and skid plates.
To help with off-road driving, a front grille-mounted forward camera is fitted, which also includes a water-repellent coating as well as a washer.
It also gets a “One-Pedal” driving mode, where drivers are able to bring the ute to a complete stop by simply lifting off the accelerator pedal.
