Budget silverside beef

One hundred grand plus is a hefty budget for any new car, but in terms of buck-per-tonne, the entry-level Chevrolet Silverado is looking like sound value. Its starting price has been trimmed down to $114,990 thanks to a decision to offer the beefy pick-up in workhorse spec, undercutting the most affordable (though better-equipped) Ram pick-up by a significant $25,510. Tough trucks donít come more Yankee than the bluff Silverado, though each example sold locally will have a touch of Aussie magic thanks to right-hand-drive conversions performed by HSV.
