Silverado High Country Overview:

2017 Silverado High Country

The Silverado 1500 High Country trim gets every option thrown at it, including power foldout running boards to climb into the high-rise cabin.

The High Country trim is as nice as you can make a Silverado from the factory, and it shows. The cabin is well-appointed and about on par with the King Ranch offerings from Chevy’s rival Ford. The chrome wheels might make it obvious to your contractor friends that you don’t actually need your truck to hit the jobsite and if you do, you’ll take your pedestrian work truck. Instead, the Silverado High Country is a mall-crawler and dinner-getter that you’d want in place of a full-size luxury sedan. It’s powered by a 6.2-liter V8, eight-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive transmission.

If you do need to do any work, the Silverado High Country will be able to handle it. The powerful 6.2-liter V8 has a whopping 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. This should let you haul just about anything short of a semitrailer. Payload capacity is close to 18,000 pounds of trailer, depending on your configuration. Power delivery is linear and pulls through the rev range, falling off only after hitting 5,600 rpm. It’s by no means a substitute for your Corvette or your Camaro, but if you had to haul some plywood and still want something that hauls ass, this can do it.

The comfortable cushy seats and relatively soft suspension make driving this Silverado High Country feel a bit like driving a ’70s full-size sedan. You might not glide over every bump, but it won’t make you spill your coffee, and there’s only a minor shudder through the frame. Corners result in predictable body roll, but everything is well-controlled.

If you’ve only got space for one vehicle or insist that your luxury car have a pickup bed, the Silverado High Country delivers a bowtie-clad solution.
