When looking for a heavy duty truck thats going to help you get the job done, no matter the job, then the best place to start is perhaps with the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickup on the road, the 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD in Edmonton AB. The new model heavy duty pickup looks to bring fuel efficiency to a segment that was never thought possible, while also integrating technology to make your work not only easier but more enjoyable. For instance, the available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot would allow your passengers to watch videos on the go, but also allows you easy access to the internet for any work purposes while on the job site.
As for fuel efficiency, just take a look at the engine options and it becomes obvious that Chevrolet was focused intently on increasing the fuel economy of their heavy duty pickup. The standard Vortec 6.0L V8 engine has an abundance of power, but also has the option of running on Compressed Natural Gas which is both cheaper for the driver and much, much better for the environment. Furthermore, a Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo-Diesel engine is available in the 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD which obviously offers better fuel economy. Unfortunately the EPA doesnt test actual fuel efficiency in the heavy duty segment, but this information should show you that there are better options than you might find elsewhere.
Cargo Management in the 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
Obviously one of the most important parts of a heavy duty work truck is going to be the cargo area. You probably wouldnt be getting a truck if you werent planning on hauling loads of cargo with it. The bed of the 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD is built utilizing a process called roll forming, which allows Chevy to build with a stronger, lighter, more durable, higher-grade steel. That covers how strong the cargo area is, but what about available features that make cargo management in the 2500HD easier? For starters, the load-bearing upper cargo tie-down hooks. Rated to secure up to 250 pounds each, these hooks are movable between a various selection of tie-down points so that you have multiple different configurations in which to secure your load.
The EZ-Lift and Lower tailgate system makes it easier to access your cargo, and eliminates the need to slam your tailgate ever again. The system makes it effortless to raise the tailgate back up, and was actually designed to gently lower gradually upon opening. And whether opened or closed, the cornerstep rear bumper makes it much easier to access your cargo by implementing simple steps on either corner of the bumper. And the under-rail box lights will make it easier to see everything in the bed no matter what time of day youre working, by installing available LED lights beneath each rail. Lastly, opt for the factory-installed spray-in bedliner and youll know the cargo box is protected from whatever youre loading in and out of it.

Just in case hauling in your bed isnt the only thing you plan on doing, you can opt for the trailering package as well which offers several available features to enhance your towing. Hill start assist gives you extra time when switching from the brake pedal to the gas to prevent the possibility of rollback. Trailer sway control keeps you and your trailer on route by using sensors to detect any sway and then bringing it back in line automatically. Diesel exhaust braking system reduces the amount of conventional braking when towing or simply going down hill, and the trailer brake controller allows you to stay in command of all your braking.
