During the 100th anniversary celebration of the first truck model, this company will announce the 2018 Chevrolet Centennial Editions. Available in two models: 2018 Chevrolet Silverado Centennial Editions and 2018 Chevrolet Colorado Centennial Editions. Silverado will be available from dealers this month, while Colorado will be available from November this year.
Although the two-piece radiator grilles are significantly different. Built-in are body-color bumpers and full LED lighting (optional halogen headlights). Available is only special Centennial Blue exterior paint, with plenty of chrome elements. Comfortable cabins are made of aluminum and wood, with plenty of chrome and leather details. Extremely comfortable leather seats are built. All models have a 4.2-inch driver information display, a 8-inch touchscreen with Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system, as well as dual-zone automatic climate control.
The Silverado model is based on the LTZ Z71 Crew Cab, while Colorado is based on the Z71 Extended and Crew Cab. The first comes with 22-inch, and second with 18-inch aluminum wheels. The external dimensions and weight of both models are identical to standard trim levels. We assume they will have the same payload and towing capacity. In the cabin it is possible to accommodate five or six passengers.
Of course, both models have a rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Silverado Centennial has two gasoline engines. The first is the 5.3-liter V8 EcoTec3 engine of 355 hp and 383 lb-ft (519 Nm) of torque. The second is the 6.2 liter V8 engine of 420 hp and 460 lb-ft (624 Nm) of torque. The Colorado Centennial will have a 3.6-liter V6 engine of 308 hp and a torque of 275 lb-ft (373 Nm), as well as a 2.8-liter four-cylinder Duromax turbo-diesel engine of 181 hp and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque. All three gasoline engines have 8-speed, while diesel has a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The 2018 Chevrolet Centennial Editions are likely to be more expensive than the standard trim level (of they are made). The Silverado LTZ Z71 costs $ 50,485, while the price of the standard Colorado Z71 is $ 34,225 to $ 40,520.
