Totally overhauled for the 2015 model year, the Silverado 2500HD boasts the industrial strength you sometimes need to get the tough jobs done. Even so, it's a surprisingly civilized machine, with enough available features to almost match the selection on some luxury cars. Lighter-duty Silverado 1500 pickups are available, while the heavier-duty 3500HD surpasses even the 2500HD's impressive limits. As usual, Chevrolet’s Silverado is similar to the Sierra, including HD models.

What's New for 2017

The biggest Silverado HD news for 2017 is happening beneath the hood. GM increased the output from its 6.6-liter, Duramax turbodiesel V8 to 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. HD trucks with the diesel engine get a functional hood scoop. Fleet buyers can now order a version of the gasoline V8 that’s can run on compressed natural gas (CNG).

Choosing Your Chevrolet Silverado 2500

As before, the 2500HD comes with a three-person Regular Cab, a Double Cab with a full-length backseat and narrow rear doors (now hinged in the front), or a Crew Cab with full-size rear doors and extra rear legroom. The Regular Cab is only available with an eight-foot bed, while the Double and Crew feature a 6.5-foot bed instead. Rear bumpers have corner steps for easier access to the cargo area.

The standard 6-liter, gas-powered V8 produces 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, driving a six-speed automatic transmission. If you want the CNG engine conversion, the 6-liter V8 is your only choice. For maximum vigor, Chevrolet offers a more potent rendition of GM’s 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel V8, which now develops 445 horsepower and a mammoth 910 pound-feet of torque. The turbodiesel gets a heavy-duty six-speed automatic and exhaust braking.

All 2500HDs come standard with rear-wheel drive, but four-wheel drive is available for each version. All models include an automatic locking rear differential. To assist with towing, GM includes trailer sway control, automatic grade braking, and integrated cruise control that automatically adjusts to load weight as standard equipment. Properly outfitted, the 2500HD can tow up to 18,100 pounds and haul 3,534 pounds.

The 2500HD is available in four trim levels: basic WT, popularly equipped LT, luxurious LTZ, and exclusive High Country. Touchscreen displays incorporate Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. Chevrolet offers a safety minded Driver Alert Package for Silverados in the LT and LTZ trims, that adds lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and front/rear parking sensors. LED cargo box lighting is available across the range.

WT

Priced at $34,505 (destination charge included) in Regular Cab form, the WT comes with vinyl or cloth upholstery, rubberized-vinyl floor matting (carpeting available), air conditioning, power door locks, cruise control, a four-speaker sound system, chrome front bumper, CornerStep rear bumper, and 17-inch steel wheels. The split-bench front seat holds three passengers. Double and Crew Cabs also get power windows and two additional speakers. The optional WT Convenience package adds tinted windows, remote keyless entry, a remote locking tailgate, rearview camera, and heated power mirrors; plus power windows for the Regular Cab.

LT

Stepping up a notch brings most of the WT's options as standard, plus cloth seat upholstery, the MyLink infotainment system with eight-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, rearview camera, 17-inch alloy wheels, Chevrolet's EZ Lift and Lower tailgate, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The LT’s optional Convenience package adds a power driver’s seat, dual-zone climate control (Double and Crew only), remote start, foglamps, and a rear-window defogger. Chevrolet also offers an LT Plus package (Double and Crew Cab only) that includes power-adjustable pedals and a power-sliding rear window. Digital Steering Assist, promising to enhance stability, is standard on turbodiesel Double Cab and all Crew Cab models.

LTZ

Available in Double and Crew Cab configurations, the LTZ carries most of the LT's options, plus leather-appointed upholstery, a heated, three-passenger split-bench with power adjustments, a driver’s memory function, dual-zone automatic climate control, remote start, power-sliding rear window, an upgraded version of MyLink, and a heavy-duty trailering package with an integrated trailer brake controller. The LTZ rolls on 18-inch alloy wheels. You can opt for the LTZ Plus package, which brings power-adjustable pedals, a heated steering wheel, front parking sensors, and a premium Bose audio system.

High Country

Heading the 2500HD selection, the High Country gets a unique grille, body-color bumpers, 20-inch chrome wheels, navigation, and a premium leather-appointed interior (saddle brown or jet black) with heated/ventilated front bucket seats. The Driver Alert Package is standard, including lane departure and collision warnings as well as a vibration safety alert seat. Individual options for the High Country include a sunroof and a rear video entertainment system.

CarsDirect Tip

Picking out a pickup truck isn’t so easy with so many possibilities to choose from. With HD models, the process is a bit more straightforward, based largely upon numerical capabilities and capacities. The base WT version isn't nearly as austere as it used to be, so it can qualify as a personal vehicle as well as a workhorse. Even so, the better-equipped, more flexible LT edition remains the best overall value for varied uses, though the extra equipment on an LTZ can be tempting.
