2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD
Why Buy a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD?
The Silverado’s claim to fame is its durability. The Silverado 2500 isn’t the flashiest or even strongest truck on the market, but it lasts year after year. Chevrolet has a fiercely loyal group of truck enthusiasts who keep returning to this model whenever the one in their driveway has finally handled its last payload.
Other benefits of a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD include fuel economy at the top of its class, a powerful diesel engine, and surprising handling and agility. The rear-wheel drive Silverado gets 18 city and 24 highway miles. That’s comparable to the gas mileage on sports cars, minivans, and jeeps, not other pickup trucks. That’s coming from a brawny V-8 engine that can be upgraded to the Duramax diesel. With all that power, the Silverado still has responsive steering, a quiet and comfortable cabin, and unbeatable acceleration.
Which Chevy Silverado 2500 Should I Buy?
The Silverado 2500HD has four models and three cab configurations. To figure out which to get, ask yourself how important interior features are to you. The base trim WT (work truck) is perfectly serviceable but, while comfortable, doesn’t have many tech features beyond AC, AM/FM radio, and a rearview camera. The LT adds satellite radio, keyless entry, and heated mirrors. The LTZ replaces cloth seats with leather and adds fog lights, heated seats, and dual-zone air conditioning. The top trim, High Country, gives you navigation and parking assist.
You can get, in order of size, regular cab, double cab, or crew cab, depending on how much cabin room you want for passengers or interior cargo space. Your decision depends on what matters most to you and, of course, what you’ll be using your truck for most often. At Burlington Chevrolet, we can help you decide which trim will work best for your needs.
What’s the Towing Capacity of a Chevrolet Silverado 2500?
The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD tows up to 14,500 pounds. That’s more than enough for large recreational boats and nearly any camping trailer. If you need more towing capacity, consider the Silverado 3500HD that musters 23,000 pounds of towing capacity when properly configured.
Is the Chevy Silverado 2500 a Good Truck?
The Silverado has the best of both worlds. Like a stern grandparent, its outside is rugged but inside is a heart of gold. You’ll love the no nonsense, boxy exterior and the beefy engine under the hood. But step inside and you’ll find a cabin that wants to spoil you with creature comforts.
