2016 CHEVROLET SILVERADO HD: The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD are among the heavy lifters in Chevy's truck lineup for 2016. Models are available in Work Truck (WT), LT, LTZ and High Country. Consumers have a choice of a Vortec 6.0-liter V-8 that delivers 360-horsepower, or the 397-hp Duramax 6.6-L turbo-diesel V-8. Both are backed by either a Hydra-Matic or Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission. There is an expanded list of Chevrolet bi-fuel trucks that run on either gasoline or compressed natural gas (CNG), and standard StabiliTrak with trailer sway control on all models including 3500HD duals. The LTZ trim is offered on the double cab and crew cab models while the High Country - Chevrolet's premium heavy-duty pickup - is offered exclusively on the crew cab. The full-size trucks exterior styling that includes enhanced cooling air flow, and the all-new cabs with increased comfort, space and extensive storage space. Available features include navigation radio with a built-in hard drive, heated/cooled seats for LTZ models, and a Z71 Off-Road appearance package. Additional new features for 2016 include available wireless phone charging, an available remote locking tailgate, and three exterior colors: Siren Red tint coat (double cab only), Red Hot and Butte Red metallic (crew cab only). Updates to the trailer hitch receiver enable the increase in conventional towing to 18,000-pounds from 17,000-lbs. For greater fifth-wheel towing capacity, engineers strengthened the pickup box structures along with the rear springs, U-bolts, and revised shock tuning, all of which contribute to the Silverado 3500 HD's best-in-class tow rating of 23,100-lbs, up from 21,700. Similarly, Silverado leads its class in payload, with a 7,222-lb. capacity.
