The Chevy Silverado added another accolade to its collection this summer. U.S. News & World Report included it on its 10 Easy Cars to Maintain and Repair list.
The publication’s goal for this ranking is to highlight vehicles that will save owners money and stress when it comes to vehicle maintenance. The availability of parts, the vehicle’s size, and the amount of space under the hood are just a few factors that determine whether a model will be simple and affordable to upkeep.
The Silverado earned a deserving place on the list for a variety of reasons. For starters, it’s easy to find replacement parts since the model doesn’t undergo major redesigns very often. This means that there’s a solid knowledge base to tap into for each generation of Silverado. So, it’s easy to find a mechanic that’s familiar with the inner workings of your truck or complete minor repairs on your own.
Another perk is that these models have generous space under the hood. That makes a technician’s job more straightforward when locating and removing a damaged part that needs to be replaced.
U.S. News & World Report also commended the Silverado for its steel construction and naturally aspirated engines, two other qualities that will spare a service consultant some headaches when performing repairs.
