The New 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 — Smarter than Your Average Pickup Truck

There is widespread belief that a pickup truck is solely for work, and considering its traditional purpose as a hauling machine, such a notion is not far from the truth. But a vehicle that offers all brawn but no brain makes a poor excuse for a modern mode of transportation, especially for today's drivers whose lives are so intertwined with technology. Fortunately, the engineers at Chevrolet are at the forefront of the evolution of the pickup truck, and the new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is proof.

The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is now much smarter than ever before thanks to its integration with the latest gadgets. Generally speaking, technological upgrades benefit this Chevy in two ways. On one end of the spectrum are features that improve safety. Lane Keep Assist, Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking, and Forward Collision Alert are some examples of the driver-assist devices that are available. Using sensors and monitors, they act in part as an extra set of eyes and alert you to possible dangers in your surroundings. In doing so, they will effectively increase your awareness and thereby help prevent an accident.

On the other end of the spectrum are features that provide convenience. Seeing as most people carry mobile phones and other next-gen apparatuses on their person, the wireless charging station onboard the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is an extremely beneficial addition. The Chevrolet MyLink system, an optional multimedia system, is also highly useful. Connected to your iPhone or Android via Bluetooth®, it will grant you access to a larger library of entertainment and information. Parents will appreciate the Teen Driver technology as well. It takes precautionary steps, such as muting the audio until passengers are buckled in, to emphasize safe driving practices.

As you can see, the new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is smarter than your average pickup truck. Interested in testing its technology out in person? Then come on down to Stow, Ohio, to check out the available models at Marhofer Chevrolet today!
