We are getting a new refresh in the form of a 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 Diesel. Chevy is continuing its tradition of frequently updating its vehicles. This is a great way to keep the current fan base and bring in other people that like their pickups fresh and modern. There are several changes coming in the latest redesign of the Silverado 1500 Diesel and we must say they are more than welcome.
Chevy managed to fix what was wrong with the previous version. While also making it contemporary and better in many ways. This means better numbers and specifications. Especially in the towing, hauling, and fuel economy department. We must say, these are changes people like to see very often. Changes will be noticeable on the outside and inside, while under the hood there are only rumors of what is to come. This truck is coming to the shops very soon and we can’t wait anymore. Read along to find out what kind of changes happened on the new 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 Diesel.
Changes are noticeable right away when we take a look inside the cabin of the 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 Diesel. Designers did a whole number of tweaks and managed to make it very contemporary and modern. While also adding luxury and a first-class look to the huge pickup. We all know we are far past the time when trucks were for work only. They are no longer simple workhorses, nowadays people enjoy driving trucks for their everyday activities. This means that they are expecting interiors worthy of mention. Interiors that resemble those of SUVs or sedans. Starting from the seats there are good improvements noticeable.
They are made of leather, suede, or fabric. It is up to the driver to choose their preference. Also, there is contrast stitching and a wide palette of colors to choose from. This means maximum customization options to your liking. Those seats are made from the best cushions possible and are heated and ventilated. This is a major improvement from the older version of the Silverado. This allows for comfortable driving even for longer periods of time. This ensures that you won’t get sweaty leather seats stuck to you during hot summer hours. We have the best infotainment systems in the new 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 Diesel. Central touchscreen unit that controls everything. We are hoping for at least 12 inches, that way everyone can join in the fun.
Connectivity is quite standard, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi hotspot. Also, Chevy said they will put in driver’s aid systems. These types of artificial intelligence are quite useful. It is scientifically proven they can save lives on the road and pull you out of difficult situations. There are many chrome and wooden accents along with the cabin and on the instrument panel. This adds much-needed luxury. The dashboard is all digital which is an amazing step toward the future. There are still few buttons and knobs on the steering wheel and instrument panel, which means not everything is minimalistic in the new Silverado.
On the outside, we can see things changing as well for the 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 Diesel. The truck’s dimensions are somewhat the same with minor increases in the terms of width. This might help with stability and control issues, not that there were any. The overall body design looks more contemporary and modern.
This was achieved by giving it fewer angles and giving it more curves. What this does as well is making the pickup more ergonomic and aerodynamic. This surely helps with fuel economy and other important specifications such as towing and hauling. We noticed that the ride height increased when compared to the previous Silverado. The wheels are lightweight aluminum alloy. This helps save some weight. The tires aren’t too beefy and thick which makes us believe this truck isn’t meant wholly for the off-road. Which is completely fine, Chevy might introduce a trim that caters to off-roading lovers.
We will have to wait and see what type of changes will occur in that trim. On the front, we have a huge aluminum grille that allows for maximum air intake. This makes sure that there is good air circulation under the hood to keep things cool in the engine department. This negates all overheating issues and allows drivers to push their pickups to the limit. Also, the headlights are somewhat redesigned and have an S shape design now. Chevy used the best-LED technology available to ensure great visibility.
