Whether you’re looking for a work truck or if you’re trying to travel around in style, the Silverado 1500 is an outstanding choice. But there’s a big difference between a base level 1500 and a 1500 LT.

As a luxury touring option, the 1500 LT comes with far more standard features, more engine options, and just more customization ability all around. That’s why we wanted to dive into everything that the Silverado 1500 LT has to offer for you here.

Engine Options

When you’re looking at a truck, one of the first things you want to do is look under the hood. And with the Chevy Silverado 1500 LT, there are three different engines that you might find there. Those engine options are:

  • 2.7L Turbo
  • 5.3L EcoTec3 V8
  • 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel I6

Another option that’s available for the Custom Trail Boss LT package is the 6.2L EcoTec3 V8, but you’re only going to find this in the Custom Trail Boss packages.

Still, the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 is by far the most common option, although the 2.7L Turbo V6 engine is usually the lowest-priced option out there.

Of course, if you want a little more torque for towing, then the 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel I6 engine is pretty hard to beat.

Standard Features

LT stands for luxury touring, and as such it includes way more standard features than what you would find in base model Silverado 1500. Below we’ve highlighted just a few of the outstanding features that you can find in newer Silverado 1500 LTs.

  • Infotainment 3 system
  • Automatic start/stop
  • Automatic locking rear differential
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Heated leather-wrapped steering wheel

Key among these key features is the automatic locking rear differential and the automatic start/stop system. With an automatic locking rear differential, you get a “true” 4x4 vehicle without the headache of needing to manually lock and shift the differential yourself!

But while you get classic off-road capabilities, you also get modern fuel-saving technologies with the automatic start/stop features! Newer Silverado 1500 LTs are really the best of both worlds.

Optional Upgrades

Just because you’re getting far more standard features doesn’t mean that there’s not plenty of different packages you can find on a Silverado LT to trick the ride out even further.

Whether you’re looking for more luxury entertainment features or more towing capabilities, there’s a package out there tailored to what you need. Below we’ve highlighted six of the most common packages you can find on a Silverado 1500 LT.

  • Bed protection package
  • Max trailering package
  • Infotainment package
  • Snow Plow prep package
  • Z71 off-road and protection package
  • Leather package

Final Thoughts

There are trucks, then there’s the luxury touring Silverado 1500s. The name says it all, as it has tons of features that take your truck to the next level.

But with so many different options and packages out there, the only way to really see what’s right for you is to go check out all the different models available. Because with so many different package options available, it’s hard to find two identical Silverado 1500 LTs!
