There exists a large number of cab and also chassis combinations available, and a normal 360-horse power, 6. 0-liter gas V-8, but the seat time was restricted to the volume types: 2500-series 4x4s with the 6. 6-liter DuraMax V-8 diesel-engined along with superb Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission. It is an $8585 setup together with 397 horse power along with 765 lb-ft of torque. GM’s carefully managed exercises together with comparable reasonably competitive trucks undoubtedly have been invented in the Silverado’s favor. However there’s no denying the Chevy had the measure of the more powerful Ford and also Ram pickups, accelerating stronger uphill with a five-ton trailer as well as controlling its speed more effectively on descents together with integrated exhaust braking.
The huge trucks’ up-to-date cabin is similarly strong and addresses the main disadvantages in the earlier model. It’s furthermore pretty very similar interior as the light-duty Silverado’s, that is to say it’s interesting, comfortable, and functional. It will require much less of the leap to get inside, once you’re seated, the position feels lower and much more enveloping. Larger sound insulation indicates the Silverado is eerily calm on the road for just a truck, with the Duramax and also road sounds but far away murmurs. This Chevy’s features seem rather simple together with the fancier Sierra, but the Silverado might be fitted along with similar luxuries, including heated-and-cooled leather car seats along with lane-departure warning.
Most of the new Silverado HD’s myriad options bring charges just like those of their 2014 analogs, together with higher levels of equipment accounting intended for modest boosts. Expect to pay out nearly $50, 000 to get a mid-level four-door, four-wheel-drive 2500 with the gas V-8, together with maxed-out 3500 diesels topping $65, 000. Observe that space as we hook up our own tools to the various versions after we have a more detailed look on common turf, however our 1st experience demonstrates that this 2015 Silverado HD redefines how a heavy-duty truck really does it's work .
