Silverado 3500HD 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.
Trailer Sway Control detects when your trailer is swaying and applies the truck's brakes, as well as the trailer's brakes using the available Trailer Brake Controller, to help bring it back in line.
The Trailering Camera System, available from Chevrolet Accessories, helps eliminate blind spots, enhances your ability to line up your trailer and hitch when backing up, and can even let you keep an eye on important cargo such as horses or livestock in the trailer.
You need to use the right material for the job. Silverado HD 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.
The available factory-installed spray-in bedliner adds a permanently bonded layer to your cargo box. Thick, water-sealed and finished with the Chevy bowtie, it's an effective way to help prevent damage to the backbone of your gas or diesel truck.
Sometimes a step makes all the difference. Prop yourself up with the CornerStep rear bumper, an ingenious feature no competitor offers.
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 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.
