The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country is known for throwing every amenity known to man into the mix, making the Silverado’s top trim level a posh, but highly competent truck. The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country continues the tradition, adding new features that visitors to Spencer Chevy dealers will love.
New Colors, New Features
For 2017, Chevrolet will introduce a new eight-speed automatic transmission across all versions of the Silverado. The new gearbox should improve fuel economy, and create snappier and more accurate gear shifting for the Silverado. The Silverado will also get some exciting new colors for 2017. Colors available on the Silverado will include:
- Siren Red Tintcoat
- Deep Ocean Blue Metallic
- Iridescent Pearl Tricoat
- Red Hot
- Silver Ice Metallic
- Summit White.
- Pepperdust Metallic
Some features specific to the Chevy Silverado 1500 High Country that will be new for 2017 include an enhanced driver alert package that will provide a variety of driver alarms when dangerous driving conditions occur. Power adjustable pedals are a new feature on the High Country that will make the truck more accessible for multiple drivers.
The pedals can be easily adjusted to accommodate taller and shorter drivers. The new High Country will also have IntelliBeam headlights. These headlights automatically switch between high and low beam headlights based on driving conditions.
The High Country will also receive updates standard to all Chevy Silverados, including a teen driver mode that allows parents to set driving parameters for their kids, the addition of Android Auto to the Chevrolet MyLink audio system, and low speed mitigation braking.
Chevrolet Silverado High Country buyers will have the opportunity to opt for a new High Desert package in 2017. The High Desert package adds a lockable, water resistant cargo storage system to the bed of the truck which allows owners to conveniently secure the contents of their truck bed. The High Desert package will also include Magnetic Ride Control suspension, a system that electronically reads the road and adapts shock absorbers as needed to offer a ride of unparalleled smoothness.
While lots of things are changing about the Chevrolet Silverado, some things are staying the same. The High Country will keep its rugged 5.3 liter V8 engine that produces 355 horsepower and 383 lb. ft. of torque. The High Country’s powerful engine produces plenty of power for urban and rural driving, making it ideal to serve as a comfortable high-end work truck. The High Country is a more-than adequate towing vehicle for work trailers and personal watercraft.
With regard to long-term value, the Chevy Silverado has been a top-performer in J.D. Power’s Survey of Initial Quality, so High Country buyers know that they’re getting a reliable truck for the long haul when they purchase one of these remarkable machines.
