There is a multitude of cab and also chassis combos offered, and a standard 360-hp, 6. 0-liter gas V-8, however the seat time had been limited by the volume models: 2500-series 4x4s with the 6. 6-liter DuraMax V-8 diesel along with excellent Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission. It’s an $8585 build with 397 horse power and also 765 lb-ft of torque. GM’s cautiously controlled workout together with similar competing trucks definitely were devised in the Silverado’s favor. But there’s no denying this Chevy got the measure of the greater powerful Ford as well as Ram pick-ups, accelerating better uphill using a five-ton trailer and controlling it is speed better on descents with integrated exhaust braking.
The big trucks’ up-to-date cabin is similarly strong and also addresses the primary disadvantages of the prior model. It’s furthermore pretty much the same interior as the light-duty Silverado’s, that's to state it’s appealing, comfortable, and functional. It will require less of a leap for getting on the inside, and once you’re sitting, the position can feel lower and more enveloping. Greater sound insulation indicates this Silverado is actually eerily peaceful on the highway for just a truck, with the Duramax and road sounds although distant murmurs. This Chevy’s trappings appear instead standard along with the fancier Sierra, however the Silverado may be fitted along with identical luxuries, which include heated-and-cooled leather seats along with lane-departure warning.
Almost all of the fresh Silverado HD’s variety options carry price ranges just like those of the 2014 analogs, with better levels of equipment accounting regarding modest increases. Be ready to pay out nearly $50, 000 for a mid-level four-door, four-wheel-drive 2500 with the gas V-8, together with maxed-out 3500 diesels topping $65, 000. Watch this room once we hook up each of our equipment on the various versions once we obtain a better look on recognizable turf, however our first experience demonstrates that the 2015 Silverado HD redefines how a heavy-duty truck done its job.
