The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HDs are offered in 4x2 and 4x4 models with either a single rear wheel (SRW) or a double rear wheel configuration if extra payload and/or towing requirements are needed. The bold new exterior houses a choice of gas or bi-fuel (gasoline and CNG) 6.0-liter V8 or Duramax 6.6-liter diesel engines, a fully updated cabin with available MyLink connectivity and other features designed for the most discerning truck owners. Silverado's exterior design blends strong Chevy truck heritage with a refined, modern aesthetic - the new design is more muscular, functional and aerodynamic. A new double-cab model, which features forward-hinged rear doors, replaces the previous extended cab, and allows easier access to the back seat, especially in tight parking spaces. The rear doors on crew-cab models are larger, and combined with revised seats, create more rear legroom and enable easier entry and exit for back seat passengers. The body and chassis are designed to improve ride and handling, comfort and capability. Four distinct trims are offered and these include the Work Truck, the LT, the LTZ and the High Country. Regular cabs have 8-foot box lengths, while double cabs are available with either 6-foot, 6-inch or 8-foot boxes, and crew cab customers can choose between 6-foot, 5-inch or 8-foot boxes. The standard engine on all Silverado HDs is a 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque 6.0L Vortec gasoline V8, matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. A bi-fuel version of the 6.0-liter which will run on either gasoline or compressed natural gas is available. The re-engineered optional Duramax 6.6-liter diesel, with 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque, is mated to the Allison 1000 6-speed automatic transmission. Standard Trailer Sway Control keeps both the truck and trailer heading in the same direction automatically. The CornerStep bumper, combined with handholds built into the new box rail protectors, makes it easier to access the box. Chevrolet MyLink, standard on all models except the base work truck, provides easy-to-use connectivity for the job site or the family vacation, with natural voice recognition and enough ports and power outlets to support multiple devices. For owners whose work or recreation takes them off road, the Z71 Package includes Rancho shocks, a skid plate, Hill Descent Control and an automatic locking rear differential. Available MyLink connectivity uses an available high-definition 8-inch color touch screen. Heated seats are available with cloth seat trim and standard with leather. Available LED cargo lights integrated beneath the bed rails will illuminate the bed when a tonneau cover is in place. The available EZ Lift and Lower tailgate uses an integrated torsion bar and damper to ease lifting and lowering. Paired with Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning is Driver Alert Seat, which generates vibrating pulse patterns on the left and/or right side of the lower seat cushion bolster to alert the driver of potential dangers, such as an un-signaled lane change or approaching another vehicle too quickly.
