Video: Get to know what’s under the 2011 Chevy Silverado

The decision that comes with buying a car is made all the more tedious by all the numbers you have to consider. Unlike other car market segments, there are a boatload of things you’ll need to understand about what makes for a quality truck.

For its part, Chevrolet is making it easier for us to know everything we need to know about the 2011 Silverado HD in just a little over one minute. In this CGI animation video, the Silverado is pretty much laid bare so we can have a better understanding of what kind of beast lurks underneath that intimidating exterior. All the important details are mixed into a nice CGI production that tells us all the numbers that we otherwise would have spent an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out.

When it comes to trucks, size matters. And it matters a lot. On that end,Chevrolet is doing its part to inform all of us that the Silverado will not take a backseat to any other pick-up truck out on the market these days.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Well, No doubt the Chevy cars have a reliable and powerful car. BTW, even the video has been removed I can sense on how powerful in the under hood of this car.

What do they mean it won’t "take a backseat" to any truck on the market? The Silverado is and has long been a joke. It can’t tow or hold as much as the F-450, it isn’t as fast or reliable as the Tundra, it isn’t as luxurious or user-friendly as the RAM, and it costs more than any of them.
