Trucks are great vehicles to own, aren’t they? Unfortunately, owning a truck, like the Chevrolet Silverado, has some downsides as well. It turns out owning a truck isn’t all fun and games. We here at Amesbury Chevy have a few reasons why you shouldn’t get a Chevrolet Silverado.

Weight Gain

Friends and family are likely to ask you if you can help them move simply because you have a capable truck. Unfortunately, you’ll probably gain a little weight due to all the free “Thank you” pizza.

Sunburns

A truck is great for enjoying the outdoors and nature as a whole, but it comes at a cost. Spending all that time outside could result in sunburns.

Spending Money

If there’s one thing no driver wants to do, it’s spend more money. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what will happen if you head to IKEA. The versatility and capability of the new Chevrolet Silverado will result in you buying more stuff simply because you don’t have to pay for delivery.

Working More

Owning a truck might mean you end up working more thanks in part to the number of doors the capability opens. Those short on cash could find themselves putting their truck to work plowing roads and helping friends with delivery.

Washing the Truck

Heading off-road will only lead to a messy truck, which means you’ll have to wash it once you return home from a day on the trails. Other fun outdoor activities, like mudding, are best done in a truck and will only make more of a mess.

Chevy Silverado 1500 Design Stands Out

2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 design is bold, athletic, and new.

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is built to be tough and capable, but this model also has some intelligent design options to make your ride more enjoyable. From this model’s bold exterior to its sleek interior, you won’t believe you’re in a pickup when you get behind the wheel. With tons of cab configurations and options to choose from, the new Chevy Silverado 1500 design can cater to your every need.

The Chevy Silverado 1500 design is rarely discussed because of this model’s impressive performance, safety, and technology. Nonetheless, the exterior is carefully crafted to be sporty and bold, with a sculpted hood, wide stance, and distinct Chevy badging. According to Chevy, a muscular front-end also conveys this model’s capabilities in a single glance.

The interior is also designed to be stylish and comfortable. The doors are made with a triple-seal system to keep out noise and air, and an aerodynamic windshield reduces the sound of rushing air. Plus, with the dual-resilient foam seats, you’ll stay comfortable for longer. There are also steering-wheel mounted controls for ease of access, and a Driver Information Center lets you easily set cruise control and other safety features.

The Silverado design is also intelligent. USB ports and a 110-volt outlet are strategically placed so you always have somewhere to charge your electronic devices. Also, ergonomic seating for up to six makes sure everyone has space for long trips.

These are just some of the many great design features that make the Silverado 1500 truly stand out.
