Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Generations

Each Chevrolet Silverado 1500 generation, representing the timeframe between each Silverado 1500 redesign, is listed below. Use this list to see which is the most reliable and safest Silverado 1500 generation based on iSeeCars' data-driven ratings.

In the market for a slightly used Chevrolet Silverado 1500, but wondering if it offers the latest design enhancements? iSeeCars' team of automotive experts and data scientists compiled the most accurate and comprehensive history of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500's redesign schedule, showing which model year an all-new "vehicle generation" debuted. When a vehicle is redesigned it benefits from the latest design and engineering enhancements, which impacts performance, fuel efficiency, safety, and reliability. iSeeCars' data shows that, on average, newer generations of a model are more powerful, fuel efficient, and reliable than older generations, but not all models follow this pattern. Use the information below to track changes in the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and its engine power, fuel efficiency, safety, and iSeeCars' Reliability Ratings across model years/generations. iSeeCars' objective and data-driven Reliability Rating is based on a rigorous analysis of over 312 million vehicles, to calculate each vehicle model's useful lifespan and its ability to last 200,000 miles or more.

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a full-size pickup last redesigned in 2019. The latest generation is powered by a 3.0L engine that makes 305 hp and delivers up to 29 mpg. A 3.0L, 5.3L, and 6.2L engine are also available, with the most powerful 6.2L engine making 420 horsepower and 20 mpg. A new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has a starting MSRP of $36,800, and used prices for this generation of Chevrolet Silverado 1500 range from $24,571 to $68,286. This era of Chevrolet Silverado 1500 earns an iSeeCars Generations Rating of 8.8, which takes both reliability and safety into consideration.

The previous Chevrolet Silverado 1500 generation is a full-size pickup produced from 2014 to 2018. This generation is powered by a 4.3L engine that makes 285 hp and delivers up to 15 mpg. A 5.3L and 6.2L engine are also available, with the most powerful 6.2L engine making 420 horsepower and 20 mpg. Used car pricing for this generation ranges from $12,495 to $38,011. This era of Chevrolet Silverado 1500 earns an iSeeCars Generations Rating of 9.4.

Our methodology

iSeeCars Generations Rating is calculated based on the latest research from our data science team.

The iSeeCars Generations Rating is an analysis of two factors: reliability and safety. It is calculated for each model generation based on the analysis of over 312 million cars using a proprietary mathematical model that estimated the probability that each vehicle would survive to various mileage thresholds. This survival model was used to calculate the average lifespan of each vehicle generation, which forms the basis of the reliability score. The safety score is based on NHTSA safety ratings.

Vehicles are scored in two categories:

Reliability

The reliability score represents an analysis of iSeeCars' proprietary research on the longest-lasting vehicles.

Safety

The safety score is calculated based on the last five years of crash test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and incorporates the latest Top Safety Pick information from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
