Pat McGrath Chevyland is your source for all things automotive, and we are particularly pleased to be your go to location for information on the 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The Silverado has long been thought of as one of the most dependable and long-lasting trucks available, and the Silverado 1500 — the half-ton model of this full-sized pickup — further lives up to this tradition by serving as one of the toughest and most rugged trucks around. Obviously one of the most important characteristics for any full-sized truck is power, but one of the major qualities of the 2013 edition of this truck is that it will have a variety of engine options. This degree of customization allows for unprecedented control, allowing you to buy exactly the truck that you want.
