Powering the Chevy Silverado 2500HD
The heavy-duty pickup segment has become as hotly contested as "The World's Strongest Man" competition. In addition to their ability to perform heroic feats of brute strength, these trucks provide levels of comfort and refinement unheard of years ago. Engine selections of the 2500HD carry over from the previous generation, meaning up to 397 horsepower and 765 pound-feet of torque worth of diesel-powered grunt are available to handle most anything you could throw at this truck. The Silverado 2500HD's Traction Control feature provides extra support to the driver's control over their vehicle. If road conditions lead to a decrease in handling when driving, an Electronic Stability feature will work with the Silverado 2500HD's brakes to guard against over or understeering, and help get you back on track safely. Properly equipped and depending on body style, the Silverado 2500HD can haul up to 3,760 pounds and tow up to 17,900 pounds with a fifth-wheel hitch.
