Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD: a car for the strong and confident
This big, bold and powerful petrol and diesel powered vehicle gets the job done clearly and smoothly. The new Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD is a heavy duty pickup truck with available dual rear wheels. The V-8 petrol or diesel engines allow you to carry your heaviest loads in both the roomy trunk and the spacious crew cabin. This vehicle is a worthy competitor to other heavy-duty trucks such as Ford, Ram and GMC. After the redesign the car has become larger and bolder. By 2021 changes are limited to more affordable trailer technology and five exterior packages:
- Z71 Sport - available on LT and LTZ models, equipped with tinted grille inserts, skid plates, bonnet vents, 18-inch aluminum wheels and body-colored bumpers;
- Z71 Chrome Sport - is almost the same as Z71 Sport but has a chrome finish;
- Midnight Edition - has Chrome Sport equipment but it is all painted black;
- Texas - available only in LTZ trim and sold only in Texas and the surrounding states. It combines convenience and safety and carries the "Texas" badge;
- Special Edition Carhartt - combines black and chrome, adds 20-inch aluminum wheels, Carhartt badges, interior accents and all-weather flooring.
Each official dealer will convince you that any of the models is worthy of attention and is capable of surpassing all the expectations of the car owner in terms of power and durability.
Formidable exterior and interior comfort
The stacked vertical headlights connected by a chrome bar look like a barbell for the heaviest athletes. Robust metal grilles extend as wide and high as possible sandwiched between a massive chrome bumper and a bonnet vent. Engine cooling is the key point. The scale of the rearview mirrors is intimidating. A short person will find it difficult to lean an elbow against the hood of the large blocky front and a stepped chair may be required to check for fluid. On the sides flat panels are above square wheel arches which house wheels ranging from 17 to 20 inches in diameter. The new Z71 Sport and Chrome Sport exterior packages complement the Midnight and Carhartt special edition models to give them more individual characteristics.
The interior tends to be soft and simple equipped with large handles and buttons that are easy to use even with coarse gloves. The lack of sophistication in the Silverado 2500HD is compensated by the huge crew cabin and berths, the largest cargo space in this class of cars. It is complemented by a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, Bluetooth connectivity, two USB ports, power doors and locks. The 40/20/20 multifunctional front seat fits all High Country trims but in the LTZ trim this center seat serves as an armrest with storage space. There are also such places under the rear seats. To buy the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD means to get the perfect balance of style, comfort and power.
Main technical parameters
Chevrolet offers the Silverado 2500HD with two V-8 engines. The 6.6-liter gasoline engine is rated at 401 h/p and 464 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm. The 6.6-liter turbodiesel engine has 445 h/p and 910 Nm of torque. Gasoline models get a six-speed automatic transmission while diesel models get a 10-speed automatic transmission. The six-speed transmission can still use a couple of gears to stay lower in the rev range as long as the situation calls for it. The car can tow 14,500 pounds in most configurations. The relatively quiet cabin is equally impressive. The independent front suspension and stiffer body smooth out some of the large truck's vibrations but the rear end can wobble when unloaded.
