Finding affordable coverage for a Chevy Silverado hinges on a lot of rating criteria such as whether you are single or married, your occupation, and physical damage deductibles. Kentucky drivers will pay around $882 a year for Silverado insurance, but that amount is a valuation using a 30-year-old married female driver with both comprehensive and collision coverage and $1,000 deductibles.
But there is a good chance that you are not 30 and maybe not even a female, possibly single instead of married, or maybe you just want liability only. Not everyone needs the same coverages, so the way we recommend to find the most affordable coverage for your Chevrolet is to just take the time to compare rates yourself.

Should you buy full coverage?
Reducing premiums for insurance should be important to the majority of vehicle owners, and one of the quickest ways to buy cheaper insurance for a Chevy Silverado is to not buy comprehensive and collision coverage. The chart below shows the difference between annual premium costs with and without physical damage coverage. The prices are based on a clean driving record, no claims, $100 deductibles, drivers are single, and no discounts are applied.
If we average the cost for ages 20 through 70, full coverage costs an additional $2,434 per year more than buying just liability insurance. That may make you wonder if buying full coverage is a waste of money. There isn’t a written rule of when to eliminate comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a broad guideline. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is about 10% or more of the vehicle’s replacement cost less your deductible, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.
For example, let’s assume your vehicle’s replacement cost is $11,500 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, you would only receive $10,500 after paying your deductible. If it’s costing in excess of $1,050 annually for physical damage coverage, then you may want to consider only buying liability coverage.
There are some scenarios where buying only liability insurance is not a good idea. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you must maintain physical damage coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if your finances do not allow you to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should keep full coverage in place.
