It’s always good to have more capability than you think you’ll need when choosing a new pickup truck. And if you’re shopping for a new pickup truck in Yellowknife today, you have all the capability you could wish for available to you with the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado HD and then some. The Silverado HD is available in 2500 HD and 3500 HD variants, and you can configure them to be as practical, flexible, or luxurious as you wish.
Five trim levels are available in the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado HD lineup: the WT, LT, Custom, LTZ, and the range-topping High Country. The High Country is only available with four-wheel-drive, and the Custom isn’t available in the 3500 HD family. All trim levels apart from High Country are standard rear-wheel-drive, but four-wheel-drive is available at every level.
There’s also the opportunity to choose from several different upgrade packages to customize your Silverado HD further. These include Custom Value, Dark Essentials, Convenience, Duramax and Appearance, LTZ Plus, and LTZ Premium Packages, and now the new Carhartt Edition for the 2500 HD LTZ Crew Cab. The Carhartt Edition includes lots of exclusive interior and exterior styling cues, a soft roll-up tonneau cover with a Carhartt logo, and 20-inch machined alloy wheels with Grazen Metallic accents and all-terrain tires. The Carhartt Edition comes in a Mosaic Black Metallic exterior paint with body-colour bumpers, hood vent bezel, and door handles. Also available are Z71 Sport, Z71 Chrome Sport, and HD Midnight Editions of the Silverado HD.
Heavy-duty pickup trucks need suitably heavy-duty powerplants, and the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado HD doesn’t disappoint in this vital area. The standard engine is a powerful 6.6-litre gas V-8 producing 401 horsepower and 464 lb.-ft. of torque. But if you want the big Chevy’s most impressive performance, that comes from the available 6.6-litre Duramax V-8 turbodiesel boasting 445 horsepower and a massive 901 lb.-ft. of torque.
A 2023 Silverado 2500 HD has an 8,396 kg maximum trailer rating and a maximum payload rating of 1,805 kg. But if you need the Silverado’s utmost capability, a properly configured and equipped 3500 HD is rated to tow up to 16,329 kg, and the maximum payload is an equally impressive 3,376 kg. Regardless of the model, trim level, engine, or drivetrain, every 2023 Silverado HD sends its power to the wheels through a quick-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission.
You can have your 2023 Chevrolet Silverado HD in a relatively basic, workmanlike format if that’s what you need. However, it can also be as well-equipped and technologically advanced as you can imagine. For example, you can have up to 8 cameras and 15 available camera views to make hitching up, backing up, or just maneuvering around as effortless as possible. An Advanced Trailering System allows you to create customized trailer profiles that help with hitching up and towing, with everything accessible via the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system or the myChevrolet mobile app on your mobile device.
An available multi-colour 15-inch diagonal Head-Up Display projects speed, navigation, and active safety alerts onto your windshield. A Multi-Flex Tailgate is available for all trim levels with six different functions to help with loading, unloading, and accessing the cargo bed. You can even have a rearview camera mirror that lets you switch between a camera view and a traditional rearview mirror.
If the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado HD can’t fulfill the role you have in mind for your next new vehicle, it probably isn’t a pickup truck that you need.
