Meet the 2016 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. Whether you choose diesel or gasoline power, you can expect smooth, seamless power delivery and massive towing potential. See how these two diverse 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||397 HP||765 LB-FT||8150 kg|
When you’re towing as much as the 2016 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. And finally, the Diesel Exhaust Brake System aids the conventional brakes when descending steep grades so even the heaviest loads remain in control.
The 2016 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 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.
Coming Soon: the 2017 Chevy Silverado HD
We’re expecting 2017 to be a good year for Chevrolet, especially with the new Silverado 2500 and 3500 HD models coming out. You’re looking at 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. We’re talking about 450 horsepower and 960 pound-feet of torque, and to help this beast of an engine breathe is a new induction system for increased efficiency.
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. We’re expecting the new 2017 Chevy Silverado HD in early-mid 2017, and you can be sure that Wheaton Chev is the place for any updates about the new models!
