You will find there's many cab and chassis combinations offered, in addition to a regular 360-hp, 6. 0-liter gas V-8, however our seat time was limited by the volume types: 2500-series 4x4s using the 6. 6-liter DuraMax V-8 diesel-engined along with superb Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission. It’s a $8585 build along with 397 horsepower and also 765 lb-ft of torque. GM’s very carefully handled exercises along with similar competing trucks absolutely had been invented within the Silverado’s favor. But there’s simply no denying the Chevy got the measure of a lot more powerful Ford and also Ram pick-ups, accelerating better uphill using a five-ton trailer as well as managing it is speed better on descents together with integrated exhaust braking.
The huge trucks’ updated cabin is both equally strong and also address the main disadvantages on the prior model. It’s also fairly much the same interior as well as light-duty Silverado’s, that's to state it’s interesting, cozy, and well-designed. It takes much less of a leap to get on the inside, and once you’re seated, the position senses lower and even more enveloping. Better sound insulation means this Silverado is actually eerily peaceful on the road for just a truck, with the Duramax along with road sound but far-away murmurs. This Chevy’s features appear quite simple together with the fancier Sierra, though the Silverado may be fitted with identical luxuries, including heated-and-cooled leather car seats along with lane-departure warning.
Almost all of the fresh Silverado HD’s myriad configurations bring prices just like those of the 2014 analogs, with better levels of tools accounting for modest increases. Expect to pay out nearly $50, 000 to get a mid-level four-door, four-wheel-drive 2500 with the gas V-8, together with maxed-out 3500 diesels topping $65, 000. Check out that room even as we hook up our own tools to the various models after we obtain a closer look in familiar turf, however our own 1st experience shows that this 2015 Silverado HD redefines how a heavy-duty truck does it's work .
