Chevrolet has a new Silverado 1500 pickup truck, but the Silverado 2500HD soldiers on for one more year before the newest version of this heavy-duty model debuts. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD may be an older model, but it hasn’t lost any of its punch.
What's New for 2019
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD is a carryover model.
Choosing Your Chevrolet Silverado 2500
The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD is a full-size, heavy-duty pickup truck. It's available in Regular, Double, and Crew Cab body styles with standard rear-wheel drive and available four-wheel drive. It comes in WT, LT, LTZ, and High Country trims.
Chevrolet offers a pair of V8 engine choices. A 6.0-liter gas engine is standard; a 6.6-liter Duramax turbo-\diesel engine is available. Both work with a six-speed automatic transmission. The conventional towing capacity ranges from 13,000 pounds with the gas engine to 20,000 pounds with the diesel, depending on the cab choice. Even higher ratings are achieved with fifth-wheel/gooseneck trailering.
Standard features include 17-inch steel wheels, a locking tailgate, a seven-inch color touchscreen display, a six-speaker audio system, vinyl seats, and a manual tilt steering column.
The Silverado 2500HD offers multiple package choices, depending on the trim. There's a WT Convenience Package ($710, remote keyless entry, heated outside mirrors, remote locking tailgate, deep-tinted glass, a 110-volt power outlet, and power windows) and an LT Convenience Package ($710, remote vehicle starter system, manual tilt-and-telescopic steering column, driver 10-way power seat adjuster, dual-zone climate control, and 110-volt outlet). A Texas Edition ($2,685, fog lights, remote start, 10-way power driver’s seat, dual-zone climate control, manual tilt-and-telescopic steering column, and trailering equipment) and a Custom Sport Package ($2,810, body color embellishments, front fog lights, chrome touches, a spray-in bedliner, 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, and front and rear park assist) are also present. An LTZ Plus Package ($1,695, power adjustable pedals, heated steering wheel, Bose audio system, and front and rear park assist) and a Driver Alert Package ($845, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, safety alert seat, and front and rear park assist) also bolster the truck. Available on two top trims is a Duramax Plus Package ($9,940 High Country, $11,055 LTZ) that adds the 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8 engine, a heavy-duty transmission, a 3.73 rear axle ratio, an engine block heater, an exhaust brake, the contents of the LTZ Plus Package, and chrome embellishments with the High Country.
This is the final year for the current-generation Chevy 2500HD with some important changes on the way. Nevertheless, this can be a good opportunity to score a deal on a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD. We think any model above the WT offers the essential amenities customers want with multiple package options available for further customization.
