With a fervent fan base of loyal owners, a reputation for top-tier reliability, and best-in-class V8 power, the Chevrolet Silverado is one of the most popular pickup trucks in America. As if the beloved truck needed any more resume padding, the Silverado family of vehicles recently received major kudos for its ease of maintainability.

Per U.S. News & World Report, the Chevrolet Silverado is among the top 10 Easiest Cars to Maintain and Repair. Easy maintainability is a big plus for truck owners, as having an easy-to-repair vehicle means you won’t experience long waits and expensive bills for parts due to slow supply chains or hard-to-find parts.

According to John M. Vincent and James MacPherson, writers for U.S. News & World Report, the length of the Silverado’s generations contribute to ease of maintenance. “The models aren’t fully redesigned as often as many vehicles, so there tends to be plenty of repair parts available,” the experts stated. They also credited the truck’s passionate, knowledgeable fan base, which makes it easy to get advice on caring for your truck. Other contributing factors to the Silverado’s high reliability include a spacious, uncomplicated engine compartment and common parts with other popular Chevy vehicles, such as the Tahoe and Suburban.
