Other than minor grille changes and changes to the interior trim, the Silverado remained virtually the same since its beginning in 1999. The Super Sport “SS” Package was later added to the Chevy Silverado that included engine options and special badging. Popular accessories, such as Chevy grille guards and Chevy Silverado bull bars are used by many Chevy enthusiasts to keep the shiny chrome on the pickup protected. You can also grab a Chevrolet Silverado cover for added protection when not driving it.
Throw off Your Chevrolet Silverado Cover and Experience the Light Duty Pickup
The half-ton SS and Hybrid are two of the most popular light-duty Chevy Silverados and are generally listed in the 1500 or 2500 category. The 2-door standard/regular cab, 4-door extended cab, and front-hinged 4-door crew cab make up the three available cab lengths of the light-duty Chevy Silverado. Whether you like a long bed or a short bed, the light-duty Chevy Silverado comes with both. The short bed is only available with the extended or crew cab versions. Every option can be protected by a Chevrolet Silverado Cover.
The Silverado SS is a light duty pickup released in 2003 based on the 1500 model. The appearance of both the exterior and interior was given an upgrade as well as the drive train. The SS came stock with 6.0 liter Vortec High-Output V8 that produced 345 horses and 380 lb-ft of torque.
Time to Throw Off the Chevrolet Silverado Cover and go to Work in the Heavy Duty Pickup
The Silverado HD (Heavy Duty) is available in the 1500HD, 2500HD, and 3500 models and is the strengthened version of the Chevy Silverado. Launched in 2000, the 1500HD comes with a Vortec 6000 V8 that produces 300 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque. There are 3 engine options that come with the 2500HD. The LB7 Duramax V8 (300 hp, 520 lb-ft torque), LLY Duramax V8 (310 hp, 605 lb-ft torque), LBZ Duramax V8 (360 hp, 650 lb-ft torque.) The Silverado 3500 offers the same as the 2500 but usually, comes with dual wheels in the rear. The rear wheel wells will be much wider, but you can fit your Chevrolet Silverado cover nice and snug.
