2015 Silverado 2500HD Overview

In excess of 475,000 heavy duty pickups were sold in the United States last year – the capable workhorses represented more than 25 percent of the year's full-size pickup volume. But unlike the passenger-car segment, where dozens of makes and models are constantly competing for supremacy, the heavy-duty segment consistently boils down to a four-way battle between the Ford F-250 Super Duty, Ram 2500 and the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD/GMC Sierra 2500HD twins. And, while today's automobile shoppers seek fuel economy, safety features, style and technical innovation, big truck buyers are essentially on a quest for one attribute: capability. General Motors recently invited us to Arizona to explore the power, proficiency and potential of its new 2015 Sierra and Silverado HD trucks. After a day of driving and hauling, we walked away with a much better understanding of what makes these 7,500-pound hulks of diesel-consuming machinery appealing. This past September's State Fair of Texas was chosen as the launch venue for GM's model year 2015 heavy-duty trucks. While the vehicles aren't all-new (the chassis was redesigned for the 2011 model year), each debuts with fresh new cabs, upgraded interiors and a host of improvements on the heels of the recent half-ton Silverado/Sierra redesign. More than two-thirds of all buyers opt for the mighty Duramax 6.6-liter diesel. Allowing consumers to build a truck to suit their needs, GM will continue to offer more than 150 combinations of HD pickup that includes the buyer's choice of bodystyle (regular, double or crew cab), drivetrain (two- or four-wheel drive), bed length (6.5-foot or 8-foot), axle ratio and one of three powerplants. As the automaker rightly points out, "One size does not fit all." The HD range's base powerplant is a gasoline-burning 6.0-liter Vortec V8, rated at 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque and running through a six-speed automatic transmission. The second engine choice is a modified bi-fuel version of the same 6.0-liter V8, which runs on gasoline or compressed natural gas (CNG). The last engine, which more than two-thirds of all buyers opt for, is the mighty Duramax 6.6-liter diesel (pictured below). The turbocharged engine is rated at 397 horsepower and 765 pound-feet of torque and it sends its power through an Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission. While the EPA doesn't post fuel economy figures for this class of vehicles, owners reporting online to Fuelly averaged about 15 mpg overall in 2013 models (our diesel test vehicle displayed about 18 mpg on the open highway when driving without a load, but our mileage dropped significantly when the truck was tasked with hauling or towing). Both Silverado (and Sierra) HD pickups are covered by a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty, five-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, and the automaker will provide two-years/24,000-miles of scheduled maintenance, including refills of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), at no additional charge (oil change intervals are determined by service use, but GM estimates that the five-gallon DEF tank needs to be refilled about every 5,000 miles). The HD trucks are rated to tow 19,600 …
