Generation Overview

The 2013 Chevrolet Silverado marks the last model year of the Silverado's second generation of production, which began in 2007. When this generation debuted, it set itself apart from the first-generation Silverado (1999-2006) with updated styling inside and out, a brand-new front suspension, and standard stability control technology. 

Chevrolet Silverado Engine Options

Under the hood, all second-generation Silverado models come standard with a 4.3L V6 engine at 195 hp and rear-wheel drive. However, two different four-wheel drive systems are optional. One is a traditional part-time four-wheel drive system, and the other is a full-time four-wheel drive system with automatic shifting. 

Three V8 engine options are also available if you're looking for a little more power behind the wheel. A 4.8L V8 is the next step up from the standard V6, putting out 295-302 hp (varies by model year). A 5.3L V8 at 315 hp is the mid-tier engine in the V8 lineup, with a range-topping 6.2L V8 engine at 403 hp available on some trims, including the LTZ. 

With four total engine options available, you can find a 2013 Silverado that suits your needs. 

Chevrolet Silverado Cab and Bed Configurations

Like many full-size pickup trucks, the second-generation Silverado is offered in a few different cab and bed sizes. The regular cab features a single bench seat for a maximum seating capacity of three people. The extended cab adds a second row with seating for up to five, whereas the crew cab features seating for six with additional rear-seat legroom. 

Three bed sizes are available: a five-foot-eight-inch short bed, a 6.5-foot standard bed, and an eight-foot long bed. Keep in mind, though, that some sizes can only be paired with certain cab configurations. For example, the crew cab can be had with either the short or standard bed. If you want the eight-foot long bed, you'll need to stick with a standard or extended cab configuration.
