KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Joe Tralongo, Contributing Editor

Feeling the sting of playing catch-up to Ford’s Super Duty and Ram’s HD trucks, Chevrolet has given its 2017 Silverado 2500 HD and 3500 HD a significant boost in power and ability. Thanks go to a greatly improved Duramax diesel engine that pumps out 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. Conventional tow ratings vary depending on configuration, but max out around 18,100 pounds for the 2500 HD and 23,300 for the 3500 HD. However, when it comes to using a fifth-wheel, the Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty still triumph over the Chevy. All this goodness doesn’t come cheap, with a fully decked-out Silverado 3500 HD easily pushing past $70,000. In fairness, the same holds true for the competition.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you need more towing and hauling ability than a half-ton Silverado can offer, but you want to remain a GM loyalist, the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD with the new Duramax diesel engine is the perfect solution.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you need only the power, towing and fuel economy of diesel engine, you can get one in a Ram 1500, or in the Nissan Titan XD that straddles the fence between half-ton and quarter-ton pickups. Both the Ram HD and Ford Super Duty best the Silverado HD’s 5th-wheel tow ratings.

What's New for 2017

The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD gets a vastly improved Duramax 6.6-liter diesel engine with a new air-induction system that helps boost both horsepower and torque. Teen Driver is added this year helping parents keep track of their kids’ driving habits.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD is built for hauling and towing, but it also proves a very capable cruiser. We spent the first half of our day cruising the freeways at high speeds. Despite its obvious size and weight, the Silverado HD surprised us with its comfortable ride and adept steering and suspension setup. The new Duramax diesel is more refined than the previous version, with less clatter and a more responsive throttle. When we finally got the chance to do some towing, the Silverado didn’t disappoint. With fifth-wheel in service, the Silverado lived up to all the promises made by our Chevrolet rep. Towing a 10,000-pound trailer up to a 6,000-foot elevation proved child’s play for the Duramax. Trailer-sway control kept wag to a minimum, and the diesel exhaust brake and trusty 6-speed Allison transmission insured a drama-free descent.

Favorite Features

Chevy’s 2017 Silverado 2500 HD and 3500 HD may be work trucks on the outside, but their interiors are every bit as plush and accommodating as the nicest Chevy Suburban or Tahoe. Chevrolet’s MyLink, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, an 8-inch color touch screen and wireless charging permit 21st -century living on the go.

GM’s 6.6-liter Duramax diesel receives a number of enhancements this year including a new air-induction system, stronger cylinder block and heads and a new electronically controlled turbocharging system. Output increases to 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque, and the engine is now B20 compatible.
