At a base price of about $21,000, the 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500 can be ordered in very basic work-truck form, with only an AM/FM radio that can even be deleted, vinyl seats, roll-up windows, and manual door locks.
At the other extreme, the Silverado can be fitted with a huge variety of options, including Bluetooth connectivity; XM and NavTraffic; OnStar with navigation; a DVD navigation system; leather upholstery; a power sunroof; a power sliding rear window; and all sorts of cargo liners, carpets, covers, tools, and snap-ons to make the bed work harder. As Autoblog observes, you'll find "sticker prices for versions fitted with leather seating surfaces, a sunroof and navigation systems creeping over $45K."
The 2010 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid includes "all of the features a pickup owner expects," according to the Detroit News. Silverado Hybrid pickups start from about $39,000 and come equipped in a simpler cloth-seat version with dual-zone climate control; remote keyless entry; and steering-wheel audio controls. There's also a $48,000 leather-lined edition with Bluetooth, DVD navigation, and a high-end audio system with XM NavTraffic. Automobile reports the "premium trim package adds leather trim, power front bucket seat adjusters, a center console, a Bose sound system with navigation, a hard bed cover, and several minor convenience items."
USB connectivity has been added to most Silverado audio systems for 2010.
