When you want a dependable truck that gets the job done, you don’t need a lot of changes. The 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 enters the new model year essentially unchanged. The base model is still the Work Truck or WT trim which is meant to be a basic truck ideal for job sites and work duties. If you’re looking for a pickup truck that is short on frills but big on capability, the 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 WT just might be the right truck to drive.
