Sited a sizeable notch above the basic Work Truck trim level, the rear-wheel-drive (RWD) 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Crew Cab full-size pickup offers versatility, utility, and just plain muscle, with a few appearance, comfort, and convenience goodies, such as a 5.5-foot bed, front-hinged rear doors, split-folding rear seats, and front and rear floor mats thrown in for good measure. Additionally, this six-passenger pickup is delivered with standard cloth upholstery, power windows, door locks, and mirrors, cruise with wheel-mounted controls, air conditioning, a single-CD player, satellite radio, and OnStar communications with a hands-free phone. Options include a couple of trailer-towing packages, Bluetooth technology, upgraded wheels, side steps, and a locking rear differential, while standard safety features include standard-for-2010 traction and stability control, dual front side-mounted airbags, and front and rear head airbags, as well as the traditional four-wheel ABS, daytime running lights, remote anti-theft alarm, and post-collision safety system.
The standard 4.8-liter variable-valve-timed (VVT) V8 and four-speed automatic transmission give the 2010 Silverado 1500 LS Crew Cab 302 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque. These ponies can tow 6,700 pounds of trailer and eat fuel at the rate of 14/19 mpg. Additionally, the 4.8-liter V8 is capable of burning E85 ethanol fuel, as well as regular unleaded. This small V8 is the only engine choice available for the 1500 LS Crew Cab.
