Except for its famous sport cars, no need to mention Camaro, Chevrolet is known for the trucks. It might losing battle in some part of the world, but this company is still being considered as leader in its homeland. However, Japanese trucks are taking over US market, so Chevy needs to compete in every area. Maybe most interesting is in mid-size pick up truck segment, where company is developing its new 2016 Chevrolet Silverado. Vehicle to beat is new 2015 Tacoma. We already have Silverado for 2015 year launched, and new model is announced, without major changes.
2016 Chevrolet Silverado engine
New Tacoma made it way to the top of the class with reliable and powerful engine. Also, there is TRD off-road pack, which is major addition to the model. That was the major change to the truck. But now, knowing what competition offered, Chevy has a chance to strike back with new model. According to announces, new 2016 Chevrolet Silverado will get 4.3-l V6 unit, good for around 300 hp. This is good result comparing to 2015 Tacoma’s base 160-hp rated V6. However, more powerful engines are in par with Silverado main option. But, for all those thirst for power, there is 5.3-l V8, with 355 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. Another powertrain, 6.2-l unit from 2015 year model, will be carried over to 2016 Silverado, to overtake towing and performance race.

Both models are expected to be packed with latest gizmos. And so it is. The 2015 Tacoma and 2016 Chevy Silverado will show off their interiors. Also, quality of materials used for upholstery and seats is better, and infotainment systems are upgraded on both vehicles. If you must decide from this part, it would be very hard to pick which one has better features and systems. However, both vehicles are very secure, graded with highest marks from NHTSA.
