It is all the more evident in the medium sized market and the same perhaps is also the as far as full sized truck are concerned. Though the choices may not be exactly widespread, the options are quite exciting and there is hardly anything to choose between one option and the other. There are some three big names which General Motors has to contend with. They are Ford with their F-150s and also some variants and models of Dodge Rams.

A Look At The Price Range

The pricing is still under wraps and only guess work can be made as of now. While deciding on pricing there is little doubt that General Motors will have to factor where the competition is. They cannot be in a different tangent as far as pricing is concerned. At the same time they are here to make money and would not like to price it in such a way that they will end up losing in the bargain.

Though it would be too early to predict on the pricing, it is expected that it would be around $30,000. The price looks extremely competitive but this will be only for the base models and as next fixtures and fittings are added to it, the price will also certainly go up. Of course the price will go up quite a bit as far as the diesel versions are concerned.

For example if customers add new features like chrome plated large 20 inch wheels are added along with AWD the price will go up quite significantly. If one chooses other features like cooling seats, automatic heating facilities and safety controls, the one can expect the price to touch almost around $50,000. However, there are reasons to believe that this price is also extremely attractive and General Motors need not fear that they will be priced out in this extremely competitive market.


Hence at the end of the day there are many reasons to believe that 2018 Chevy Silverado will be keenly watched not only by the market and customers but competitors also will have a close eye on it because it will impact them directly in more ways than one.
