There exists a large number of cab and also chassis combining available, as well as a standard 360-horse power, 6. 0-liter gas V-8, although our seat time has been limited by the volume types: 2500-series 4x4s with the 6. 6-liter DuraMax V-8 diesel and outstanding Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission. It is a $8585 set up together with 397 horse power in addition to 765 lb-ft of torque. GM’s very carefully managed workouts with related reasonably competitive trucks certainly had been devised within the Silverado’s favor. Although there’s simply no denying the Chevy acquired the measure of the greater powerful Ford and also Ram pick-ups, accelerating stronger uphill using a five-ton trailer and controlling it is speed more effectively on descents together with integrated exhaust braking.
This big trucks’ updated cabin is similarly strong and addresses the main weak points from the previous model. It’s additionally pretty very similar interior as the light-duty Silverado’s, that's to state it’s appealing, cozy, and well-designed. It takes fewer of the leap to get on the inside, and once you’re seated, the positioning can feel lower and even more enveloping. Better sound insulation means the Silverado is actually eerily calm on the highway for just a truck, with the Duramax and road noises but far away murmurs. This Chevy’s trappings appear quite simple with the fancier Sierra, however the Silverado can be fitted along with equivalent luxuries, including heated-and-cooled leather car seats and lane-departure warning.
The majority of the new Silverado HD’s multitude configurations carry price ranges similar to those of the 2014 analogs, together with better levels of equipment accounting intended for modest will increase. Expect to pay out nearly $50, 000 for a mid-level four-door, four-wheel-drive 2500 with the gas V-8, along with maxed-out 3500 diesels topping $65, 000. Check out that area once we hook up our equipment on the various versions once we have a nearer look on recognizable turf, however our own first experience shows that the 2015 Silverado HD redefines what sort of heavy-duty truck done its job.
