Chevy Silverado HD pickup trucks are for those who need a truck designed for the very toughest jobs. In other words, you should step up to the 2500HD or 3500HD if you need more towing power and a bigger payload capacity than the Silverado 1500, the brand’s flagship light-duty model. The heavy-duty Silverado 2500 and 3500 pickups can tow up to 8,396 and 16,329 KG, respectively, and their practical interiors are built to support long days on the job in Cross Lake.
Wondering what might be possible once you’re behind the wheel of a Silverado 2500 or 3500HD? The team at Rock Country GM has laid out everything you need to know to decide if one of these powerhouse pickups is right for you!
As we mentioned up top, the 2500HD can tow up to 8,396 KG when equipped with the available turbo-diesel engine upgrade. However, you’ll still get massive power with the standard gas V8 under the hood. And with the Chevy Advanced Trailering System, you can create customized trailer profiles for easy hitching and towing no matter how you configure your new Silverado HD. Here’s a close look at the specs for both engines:
The Silverado 3500HD offers the same two engine options as the 2500HD but can tow quite a bit more because of its larger and sturdier chassis: up to 7,879 KG with the 6.6L V8 and up to 16,329 KG with the Duramax® 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8. To meet your precise cargo-carrying needs in Nelson House, the 3500 can be configured as a Crew Cab paired with either a Standard Bed or a Long Bed, and with a single-rear-wheel (SRW) or dual-rear-wheel (DRW) powertrain.
