CEC’s Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD DIABLO Edition on 24” Wheels

In the pipe-laying competition otherwise kenned as the full-size, heftily ponderous-obligation pickup-truck segment, manufacturers are perpetually endeavoring to out-do one another’s tow ratings. Sometimes, this takes the form of genuine mechanical amendments, other times truck-makers simply get more savvy about how to define their towing capabilities as “class-leading.” Chevrolet moves the bar forward in both regards with its updated 2015 Silverado 2500 and 3500 HD models.

The bow-tie brand boasts “best-in-class payload and conventional towing” for the incipient HD, which sounds mighty until you consider that the Silverado’s all-out towing with a fifth-wheel isn’t class-leading. Still, you can carry more weight in the Chevy’s bed and lug more behind its trailer hitch than you can with Ford’s Super Obligation or Ram’s fifth-wheel-towing king, the 3500 HD. Lest we get mired too deeply in towing, the Silverado HD additionally follows the 2015 Silverado 1500’s lead and wears updated styling and packs incipient safety and accomodation features.
Incipient Cabs, More preponderant Controls, and Towing!

If you like the way the Silverado 1500 looks, well, you’ll genuinely like the 2015 2500 and 3500. That’s because the cumbersomely hefty-obligation trucks look assuredly identical to the 1500, albeit with a scarcely more bluff-like face. Because when verbalizing HD trucks, virtually everything comes back to towing, Chevrolet verbally expresses it put a paramount amount of work into the Silverado to enhance engine cooling through aerodynamically optimized ducts and more preponderant front-end sealing. Chevy additionally claims punctilious attention was paid to smoothing atmospheric flow over the tailgate and roof spoilers, proving that aerodynamic efficiency has a place even on conveyances shaped like houses.

The HDs additionally inherit the 1500’s cab ameliorations, including its stiffer construction, triple-sealed doors that are inset into the body for reduced noise, and classy interior. A bevy of USB, SD card, and power ports are available, and Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system is standard on all models preserve for the base work-truck HD variant. Just as the 1500 gained some interior room and switched to forward-hinged doors on elongated-cab models, so do the 2500 and the 3500. Feel that? The topic of towing is pulling us again—this time concerning the dashboard, which was designed to put towing-concrete controls close at hand. The optional trailer brake controller is situated to the left of the steering wheel, the tow/haul button (which withal operates the Auto Grade Braking transmission shift map) is fitted to the cessation of the shifter, and on models equipped with the Duramax diesel engine, the exhaust brake can be activated via a dash button.

Carry-Over Engines, a Bi-Fuel Option, and Towing!

In contrast to the reworked body and interior, the 2015 Silverado HD models’ two available powertrains carry over unchanged. A gas-fed, 6.0-liter V-8 mated to a six-speed automatic brings 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque to the towing party, albeit it makes 322 ponies in 3500 models. A bi-fuel option for the V-8 facilitates a compressed-natural-gas conversion with hardened valves and valve seats. Both 2500 and 3500 Silverados keep GM’s 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engine on their option sheets; the burly mill makes 397 horsepower and 765 lb-ft of twist. The diesel again comes paired with a six-speed Allison 1000 automatic transmission.

Likely thanks to its beefy rolled-steel bed, the Silverado’s maximum payload capacity increases from 7222 pounds to 7374 pounds—again, class-leading. Hitch-mounted trailer loads can now top 19,600 pounds with an available factory hitch, up 1600 pounds over last year’s model and withal class-leading. (For now, at least—these gasconading rights are perpetually switching from gasconader to gasconader.) The Silverado’s maximum fifth-wheel towing capacity now stands at 23,200 pounds, up from 22,500 and a few hundred pounds higher than the Ford Super Duty’s, but still far below the Ram HD’s insane 30,000-pound rating.

Other amendments come in the form of incipiently optional safety gear like forward-collision and lane-departure warning systems, as well as GM’s vibrating Active Safety Seat that avails vigilant drivers to peril. Stability control with trailer-sway control is standard across the line. The Silverado 1500’s unique CornerStep bumper foot indents are standard, while the lighter-obligation truck’s available EZ Hoist and Lower damped tailgate, which averts the panel from slamming down and makes hoisting it closed a one-finger affair, is optional. Buyers may withal spec the 1500’s bed tie-down hooks and LED lighting.
