2016 Chevy Silverado 3500HD Edmonton AB
Recently we dove into some of the finer details about the 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. We stated that if you’re a true truck enthusiast that needs more capabilities than a standard truck might offer without sacrificing the style that you love, then that heavy duty truck was the ultimate choice. We stated that it can get some of the toughest, dirtiest jobs around done and we weren’t lying. But even still, that’s only some of the toughest, what about those it can’ handle? That’s where the ultimate heavy-duty truck comes into play, the 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500HD in Edmonton AB. It combines the style of the 1500 with that same strength of the 2500HD, but then pushes it even further. Let’s take a closer look at the heaviest of the duties.
Capabilities of the 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500HD
As a matter of fact, the Chevy Silverado 3500HD has the same two engine options as its slightly less-capable sibling, the 2500HD. You can opt for either the Vortec 6.0L V8 that deliver 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft. of torque and runs on standard gasoline, or you can opt for the Duramax turbo-diesel 6.6L V8 that delivers a whopping 765 lb-ft. of torque and 398 horsepower. Either engine gives you all the power you need, and when the manufacturers add the necessary components the truck becomes even more capable than its little stablemate.
Let’s take a look at the numbers, starting with payload. Depending on what cab, box and engine you choose you can have a max payload of anywhere from 3,914 lbs. to an absolutely incredible 7,135 lbs. Things get even more impressive as we turn to trailering capacities.
