Meet the 2017 Chevy Silverado HD Pickup
While the fuel economy is still a concern, towing power and reliability are the prime priorities of the Silverado HD’s available engines. The redesigned diesel engine is an all-new 6.6L Duramax Turbo-Diesel V-8 engine mated to the Allison 1000 6-speed automatic transmission available for any of the trim models. Whether you choose the all-new diesel or gasoline power, you can expect smooth, seamless power delivery and massive towing potential. See how these two hardworking engine options compare to one another:
|Engine Model||Horsepower||Torque||Towing Capacity|
|6.0L Vortec V8||360 HP||380 LB-FT||6700 kg|
|Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo-Diesel||445 HP||910 LB-FT||8210 kg – 2500HD
10569 kg – 3500HD
When you’re towing as much as the 2017 Silverado HD can handle, it’s good to know that it has a series of safety systems to keep it all under control. Trailer Sway Control uses both the trailer brakes and the Silverado’s brakes to help negate yaw and keep your load in line. The Rear View Camera also includes dynamic lines so you know exactly where your trailer is heading – perfect for backing into tight spaces. StabiliTrak Electronic Stability control makes sure you remain on path and in line. And finally, the Diesel Exhaust Brake System aids the conventional brakes when descending steep grades so even the heaviest loads remain in control.
The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD is designed to be a mobile office, so even if you’re out in the field, you can remain connected. 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity means you can stay in touch no matter where you are, and the available 8-inch colour touchscreen connects to your phone so you can easily take call even when on the move. Plus multiple USB ports, four auxiliary power outlets, an optional 110-volt outlet, and available wireless charging means you can keep all your technology charged and ready to go.
Exterior, Interior Features
Carrying the new Silverado is a set of new 20-inch, 6-spoke polished aluminum wheels, adding to the powerful appearance of the Silverado. And if you’ve been thinking of letting the kids give it a try, there’s also a new Teen Driver mode to help them get behind the wheel and on the road. The quiet cabin gives you the ability to think. While forward-hinged rear doors make getting in and out easier. The roll-formed steel cargo box is lighter, stronger and more durable, so its ready for the toughest jobs.
