KBB Editors' Overview

By Trevor Dorchies - Updated Date: 4/1/2014


The heavy-duty truck crowd isn't a particularly tough one to satisfy. If you haul heavy objects, you're going to need some muscle and that's exactly what the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 HD trucks offer. Like its corporate sibling – the 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 HD – the Silverado HD is General Motors' response to Ford's F-Series Super Duty and Ram HD trucks. Both the Silverado 2500 and 3500 HD offer your choice of a 6.0-liter V8 gasoline engine and a 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel V8, the latter being legendary in its own right. The choices go on from different cab configurations to bed lengths to trim levels. While it's not the brawniest in class, the Silverado HD has plenty of brute strength to get the job done.

You'll Like This Car If...

If your livelihood requires towing heavy objects long distances, or you just need some extra muscle around the farm, the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD is ready and more than able.

You May Not Like This Car If...

There's no ultra-lux trim offered on Chevy's heavy-duty model like on the Ford F-Series, Ram HD, or even the Sierra Denali HD. If you need to go bed every night knowing that your truck can haul the most, you'll want to look elsewhere, too.

What's New for 2015

Both the interior and exterior design catches up to that of the Silverado light-duty truck that was released for 2014. Other styling tweaks include the rear bumper CornerStep and LED lights that illuminate the bed.

Driving It Driving Impressions

During our time with the 2015 Silverado HD, the drive route consisted mostly of long highway stretches, and the miles slipped by thanks to the spacious cabin and a drivetrain that did its part to keep quiet. After a few hours of seat time with and without a trailer in tow, we never felt worse for wear. After we had our fill of towing everyday things like the fifth wheel, we hooked the Duramax diesel up to a trailer carrying 10,000 pounds and drove it up and down a steep grade, rising to an altitude as high as 5,000 feet above sea level at one point. The Silverado HD demonstrated that it can control just about anything you'll ever need to tow. Each trailer had minimal wag and the 6-speed Allison transmission – working in conjunction with an exhaust brake – kept everything under control while going downhill.

Favorite Features

INTERIOR
An all-new upright instrument cluster features six gauges and a slew of large, easy-to-use rubberized knobs responsible for various things like climate control and radio volume. Ambient lighting illuminates all of the vital switches in the cabin making each easier to locate when driving at night.

6.6-LITER DURAMAX ENGINE
The cheapest way to feel like you're driving an 18-wheeler without actually buying one. Paired with a 6-speed automatic Allison transmission, the Duramax turbodiesel engine is the strong, silent type as it operates quietly and pours on the power in an even fashion.
