If you are looking for a half ton pickup to rent, a great option to look at is the 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500. There are many great features Chevy has included in this model, but a few that we will focus on are the quick acceleration, the seat comfort and the strong towing capacity.
The Quick Acceleration
If you are going to rent a work truck and going to be traveling in it at all, you might as get one that knows how to get up and go. The 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 offers a zero to 60 mph in just above six seconds depending somewhat on specifications. This may just be a fun perk, but if you are going to rent a work
truck, it doesn’t have to be boring.
The Seat Comfort
Spending hours in a truck doesn’t have to be uncomfortable and this is something that Chevy has taken to heart. You can choose between bucket or bench seats up front depending on trim levels but both provide excellent lumbar support and offer available heating and ventilation. This means that an eight hour workday doesn’t mean a trip to get a back massage after every shift.
The Strong Towing Capacity
Trucks are being used more often than ever as an everyday driver, but if you are going to rent a truck, you are most likely using it for its towing ability. The Chevy Silverado doesn’t disappoint in this regard. If you go with the V6, maximum towing capacity tops out at 7,600 pounds and the V8 maxes out at 12,000. By carrying more per load, you can guarantee that you’ll get your work accomplished in less time.
Besides the three that we’ve focused on, there are many additional reasons to look at picking the 2016 Chevy Silverado to rent like a quiet cabin at highway speeds, a lane departure intervention system, and the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
If you are needing a half ton pickup to get the job done, look no further than this great workhorse.
