There are many reasons to buy a truck, from the pure power of it to the overall tough appearance. The 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD is certainly a truck’s truck and one that will impress you not only with its overall aesthetic but with its durability as well.
Below you’ll find a quick list of three things to love about the 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD, for truck experts and novices alike, though this list is by no means exhausted.
It may sound silly, but the 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD is one good looking truck. It’s got the right color for everyone with up to thirteen possible exterior color options ranging from deep ocean blue metallic to a vivid red known as “red hot.” Unlike many motor vehicles, there is an extensive number of options for the color of the interior as well, such as “saddle,” a warm mix between tan and brown and dark ash, a muted but sophisticated gray tone. With black features such as door handles and a black and chrome grill that come as standard features of the truck, the Chevy Silverado 2500HD oozes style and sophistication.
Though the 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD comes standard with cloth seats, an upgrade to vinyl seats is offered along with a carpeted floor covering (and weather mats, for rainy days and snowy seasons) and a full cloth headliner.
The 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD is a car that you’ll love to drive and that your passengers will love to ride in. Unlike many cars that have style but no real comfort, the Chevy Silverado 2500HD offers a number of features – both as standards and as optional extras – that make driving the Silverado 2500HD akin to a luxury experience.
The seats themselves lend themselves to comfort, providing lumbar support to both driver and passengers. The bench style seat (which can seat as many as three people comfortably) means that there is plenty of space to go around and that no one ends up feeling cramped or wedged in. With four-way adjustment capability in the driver’s seat, even long rides will not impact overall comfort, and both driver and passenger are able to recline and adjust the heights of their seats as they so, please. An optional driver cushion tilt only adds to the luxury that the driver will experience even just while test driving the Chevy Silverado 2500HD.
There is a definite benefit to a powerful truck, particularly for those drivers who are perhaps interested in off-roading adventures and the like. A powerful motor vehicle is a good thing to have in any situation, however, in case of the unexpected or even an emergency situation.
Two types of engines are available for the Chevy Silverado 2500HD: the 285 horsepower, 4.3 liter V6 and (for an additional cost) the 355 horsepower, 5.3 liter V8. Both these engines are able to safely take regular gas, thus saving the new owner of the Silverado a considerable amount of money at the gas pump, as premium gas comes at a premium price.
The 355 horsepower engine has an impressive amount of torque too, able to haul as much as 383 pounds per foot with ease. For those prospective buyers who are looking to hook up something such as a boat or a trailer to the Silverado 2500HD, it’s important to know that this engine can handle it without any problems.
It’s Got The Right Safety Features
Though power is great, it’s not worth much without the safety features necessary to keep both driver and passenger (or passengers) safe. Fortunately, the 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD comes equipped with both, with safety features to match the amount of power it is capable of putting forth.
To start, the Chevy Silverado 2500HD has a front passenger airbag sensor, meaning that an airbag will deploy only if someone of a certain weight is in the front seat. This means that a safer environment is able to be created for any children riding in the front seat who could possibly sustain a serious injury caused by the detonation of the front airbag. With six airbags in total in the Silverado, a safe and protected environment is cultivated, only enhanced by standard feature of the front seat belt pre-tensioners.
But the Chevy Silverado 2500HD does more than just protect its occupants in the unfortunate event of a motor vehicle accident. In fact, the Chevy Silverado 2500HD is able to help prevent many motor vehicles accidents from even occurring in the first place. This is possible through the implementation of safety features such as brake assist and traction control, both of which come standard with the vehicle. Other safety features in the same vein include electronic stability and four-wheel disc brakes.
The Chevy Silverado 2500HD also comes with a spare tire as part of the standard package, ideal for even the most experienced of truck drivers. After all, flat tires are all too common, with the majority of drivers sustaining at least five in the entirety of their driving years.
There’s So Much More To Love
Aside from the above three reasons to love the Chevy Silverado 2500HD, there are countless other reasons to give this truck a test drive at your local dealership. For instance, the 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD comes equipped with heavy-duty suspension as well as other features, most of them standard with the purchase of the motor vehicle, like speed sensing steering and gas pressurized rear shocks.
The optional extras are pretty great too, such as the option to install remote keyless entry as well as power windows.
The Chevy Silverado 2500HD is a solid truck, one that is built to last through all conditions. Not to mention that the Chevy Silverado 2500HD is even extremely comfortable as well, a truck that will prove to be a joy to drive through all kinds of weather and all seasons.
