Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Model Years

Overview

Research by Year
, Automotive Editor -

Although we can trace the Silverado name back to trim levels of the 1970s, it didn't achieve the status of a standalone model until 1999. Strengthened versions of the Silverado—dubbed HD for Heavy Duty—joined the lineup in 2001.

Chevrolet offers the Silverado 2500HD in a number of configurations. Buyers can select cab styles, rear- or four-wheel drive, and between two engines: a 6-liter Vortec V8 or a beefy 6.6-liter Duratec Diesel engine that produces 397 horsepower and 765 pound-feet of torque. When paired with an available Allison 1000 six-speed transmission, the latter enables a Silverado 2500HD to tow up to 17,800 pounds.

Major changes included:

The 2015 model year ushers in the third generation for the Silverado 2500 HD, as the exterior gets the all-new look that the 1500 models received in 2014. Additionally, the cabin gets a refresh that brings it up to date with other new trucks. Under the hood, the 2500 HD retains the same 6-liter V8 and 6.6-liter diesel V8 as 2014, which produce 360 horsepower and 397 horsepower, respectively. Chassis and suspension improvements result in increased towing and payload capacities in the third-generation Silverado 2500 HD.
