2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

A new look wrap Silverado and Sierra HDs, but like all Chevy pickup, it relies on the styling evolution and still somewhat conservative. Most of it comes directly from the appearance of the truck half ton, such as organ meats, but there are some important differences.

The first, and most obvious, is two thick chrome bar that now adorn the grille of Chevrolet HD. Although the front end seems to have a more flat metal push through the air, this truck is actually more aerodynamic than the previous generation.

Engine and transmission options carried over from the old truck, which is not a bad thing. Chevrolet set the ratio of head-to-head in the hills of Arizona against the two Cummins-powered Ram Heavy Duty and Ford Super Duty with the 6.7-liter Power Stroke and GM HD run from the other two when climbing a six percent grade.

The 6.6-liter Duramax diesel still makes 765 pounds-feet of torque and 397 hp and is mated exclusively to a six-speed Allison 1000 transmission. The base engine, which tend to be less popular, is a V8 6.0-liter petrol that puts out 360 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. Chevy says that most of the trucks sold to fleet buyers interested in the truck base trim, as people are interested in doing any towing, especially heavy just have to meet for diesel.

The brake pedal feel has been improved and offers confidence-inspiring stopping power. The top of the pedal travel was light, with meat pedal found half way down with the increasing resistance. Heavy-duty trucks tend to have sensitive brakes and Chevrolet did a wonderful job to avoid the feeling that without giving serious stopping power.

Chevy also enhanced automatic braking system to better control weight class in the hills. He worked with through the Allison transmission and diesel exhaust brake to hold the truck at a constant speed when traveling downhill. During testing, proven good braking classroom set up and are always able to hold the truck at the desired speed, even with a 13,000-lb trailer is connected to the rear.

The exhaust brake is updated, which is actually a variable vane turbocharger which acts as an exhaust brake, is one of the quietest in any HD. It is also manually controlled, with a toggle switch on the center stack to enable it.
