2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Appearance

The 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 comes in many different trims with the WT being the basic model and the High Country being the best trim available. The High Country is the same as the LTZ trim but it also has an exclusive saddle premium leather interior. The WT trim starts at a price of $26,105 and the High Country starting a price of $47,875. I know that is a huge difference in price. Which model you get all depends on your financial situation and your preferences.

The High Country option has some upgrades to the exterior appearance like chrome bumpers, grill & side mirrors. Oh yea & also some beautiful 20" chrome wheels! The style of the Silverado is basically the same as the previous year. It's got a boxy tough look without any fancy curves. It looks like a truck and it should since it is indeed a truck. Some trucks like to add some fancy looking design and it works for some trucks like the 2015 Dodge Ram 1500.

The 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 also has 2 different regular cabs, 2 different crew cabs and a double cab to choose from. So if you need a longer bed then you can have it or if you want more room for passengers, you can have that too. Now let's get into the specs of the truck.
