Silverado 2500HD takes your work as seriously as you do. Maybe that's why it's been named "Most Dependable Large Heavy Duty Pickup, Two Years in a Row" by J.D. Power, based on past modelsâ€ . And now there's a new available Duramax Diesel that generates more torque than ever before, giving you the confidence to tow and haul the big loads with ease. Silverado HD: the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickup on the road
Nearly everything about the available Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel engine is all new, resulting in 910 lb.-ft. of torque, class-leading horsepower and all the towing peace of mind you need. We also reimagined the hood on Silverado HD diesel models with functional vents that enable easier, more confident hauling and trailering.
Silverado HD offers two heavy-duty truck engines: the standard gasoline-powered VortecTM 6.0L V8 and the available Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 that generates 910 lb.-ft. of torque. Both work in tandem with our advanced trailering technologies to deliver exceptional control and capability.
There are more than 1 million Duramax Diesel engines with Allison transmissions on the road today with over 100 billion miles of experience. Now we've taken that proven power and perfected it, creating this available engine that churns out an earthshaking 910 lb.-ft. of torque, a class-leading 445 horsepower, plus all the confidence you'll need when towing.
To create a 19% increase in max torque, we rethought nearly everything on the available Duramax Diesel. The cylinder heads are stronger and stiffer, and our taller engine block allows for a more robust piston design. The crankshaft has larger connecting rod journals, and an active drain crankcase oil separator allows for better operation when you're pulling big loads.
The patented induction system in the Duramax Diesel uses two air inlets - through the new hood scoop and near the fender - to satisfy the intake needs of this powerful engine. This improves performance and helps ensure water and debris intake is a non-issue, even in extreme conditions.
The added horsepower and torque of the Duramax Diesel are benefits you can feel. But we didn't stop there. This engine also boasts reduced noise and vibration with acoustic rocker covers, isolated injectors, a full-length acoustic lower oil pan and an all-new fuel system.
In addition to big-time towing capability, Silverado HD has several built-in features, including the available Fifth-Wheel/Gooseneck Prep Package, designed to help provide confidence, stability, safety and control.
You need to use the right material for the job. Silverado HD work truck features a roll-formed steel cargo box that's lighter, stronger and more durable than traditional stamped-steel boxes, so you can secure loads with confidence.
This is the place where comfort meets capability. Seats are designed for an all-day drive, and the quiet cabin is ideal for making a phone call or planning your next job. Smart features like upper and lower glove boxes mean there's always room for your gear.
Silverado HD is as smart as it is strong, offering technology to keep you connected like available Chevrolet MyLink with a 7-inch or 8-inch diagonal color touch-screen display, wireless charging and 4G LTE™ Wi-Fi®.
Silverado HD offers available active safety technologies - including Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning and the Safety Alert Driver Seat - that help prevent collisions before they happen.
