2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD
The current generation of this HD truck was launched in 2011 and the main problem was the interior. It remained pretty much the same and everyone that knows that some cabin refreshment is necessary if Chevy wants to be competitive Ford and Dodge. The Light-Duty variant of this model got some big refreshments inside last year, so we expected that 2015 Silverado HD will get the same treatment, so it could be more competitive. However, cabin definitely the main thing when we talk about heavy trucks. It is mostly about performances, especially towing capability.
2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD variants
Great thing about Heavy-Duty trucks is that there are plenty of possibilities for buyers to customize models for their own needs and tastes. The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD will be no exception. There are two basic variants – heavy-duty 2500HD and heavier-duty 3500HD and after you choose one of these you go to next level of ‘’customizing’’. You can choose three different cabin designs – Regular, Double and Crew cab.
There is also a choice of two bed lengths and you can also choose number of rear wheels – single or dual. Finally, there are three trim levels. The basic 2015 Chevy Silverado HD is WT, which means “work truck”, so you can presume that there isn’t too much features – it has even a vinyl floors, instead of carpeting. The second one, better equipped is LT, while top level is LTZ, where you can find thing such as leather seats, large touchscreen, locking rear differential and many other.
2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD engines
There are two engines in offer for 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD. The first one is 6.0l V8 petrol engine which makes 360 horses and 380 lb-ft. There is also a diesel variant. It is a 6.6l Duramax V8 which outputs 397 horses and has magnificent 765 lb-ft of max torque. Both engines are matted to 6-speed automatic transmission, but there is also a manual shift capability in offer. Main thing about these trucks is towing and 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD has great results in this segment. The HD2500 variant can tow up to 17.900, while HD3500’s best result is 23.200 pounds. However, this is still far away from RAM’s magnificent 30.000 pounds of towing capability.
