Side and side curtain airbags are standard on all Silverado 1500 models, whileanti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, OnStar, and tire pressure monitors are all included. A rearview camera is available, as are power-adjustable pedals.
The 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Hybrid have a good set of safety features, but crash-test results have been mixed. The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) has rated the Silverado 'good' for frontal offset but only 'acceptable' for side and rear impact, and it hasn't yet tested the truck for roof strength. Outcomes from the federal government have been better, with four- or five-star overall ratings, depending on the cab style (Crew Cab models do best), and five-star side impact ratings on all models.
