The 2023 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD is the newest model in the ever-reliable three-quarter ton heavy-duty pickup segment to which Chevy has dedicated multiple generations. This truck is for those who value the prestige of the Silverado nameplate but also rely on a dependable pickup known for having durable powertrains, great towing capacity, and more than capable payload ratings. The heavy-duty pickup is also available across multiple trims to satisfy the expectations of different truck shoppers looking for a truck that can be configured to specific tastes.
The 2023 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD is available in five trims with four special editions. The trim line starts with the base WT (or Work Truck), followed by the Custom, the customizable LT, the feature-rich LTZ, and the luxury-oriented High Country. The special editions available for the 2023 model year include the Carhartt Edition, the Z71 Sport Edition, Z71 Chrome Sport Edition, and the HD Midnight Edition.
The 2023 model year Silverado carries over the 2022 updates, which include the addition of the highly popular and segment-defining Multi-Flex Tailgate. Plus, there is the new Greenstone Metallic exterior color for the truck, and the addition of power seats is available on the Custom trim. The combination of improved quality of life and practical capabilities helps give the Silverado 2500 HD additional appeal for those who want a stylish and highly-functional three-quarter-ton heavy-duty pickup truck.
Part of what makes a three-quarter-ton truck so noteworthy is its performance, being able to pull lots of heavy loads and haul massive cargo to and from a destination. To accomplish these tasks, powerful and built-for-purpose engines are required. Thankfully, the 2023 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD comes ready-made with two optional engines, both designed for the heavy-duty tasks that truckers expect from a truck like the Silverado. These two options include the 6.6-liter V8 and the 6.6-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel V8.
Both V8 engines offer plenty of horsepower and torque to get the job done, with the V8 gasoline engine providing up to 401 hp at 464 lb-ft of torque and is paired up with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Duramax Turbo-Diesel V8, however, manages 445 hp and a massive 910 lb-ft of torque and is paired with the always respectable Allison 10-speed automatic transmission.
With the standard inclusion of an automatic locking rear differential for improved traction control and stability, as well as the availability of automatic emergency braking and Autotrac's 2-speed transfer case, you get all the smooth handling you could want out of a heavy-duty pickup. These features are also buffered by the standard inclusion of the StabiliTrak system for stability management and traction control. This further ensures that whether you're driving on smooth pavement, wet roads, or dirt trails, you're always in direct control of the Silverado 2500 HD at all times.
If you have the truck configured with the Duramax, you also have features like the diesel exhaust brake to help manage braking when going up or downhill while trailering a heavy load. Variable turbocharger vanes can also aid in creating back pressure to slow the engine down without using the brakes, especially with features like the Tow/Haul mode that can easily be activated from the center console within the truck's cabin. You also have the added benefit of digital variable steering assistance on every trim that helps maintain center driving and added input aids for when more drastic maneuverability is required.
The vehicle is designed right from the get-go to handle arduous loads regularly thanks to being available in rear-wheel or four-wheel drive and with standard external auxiliary transmission and engine oil coolers. These kinds of performance features help make the Silverado 2500 HD stand out from the competition with ease. These features can also give many truck drivers peace of mind knowing that these standard implementations can help make life on the road much easier.
Power and performance may determine how well the truck performs on and off the road, but its capabilities determine its usefulness at select tasks, from towing to cargo hauls and everything in between. The 2023 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD is more than capable when it comes to all the expected functions a three-quarter-ton full-size pickup should be able to perform, whether at a work site or on a weekend trip. Thanks to a reinforced design, a lightweight yet strengthened chassis, and a fully boxed frame, the Silverado 2500 HD encompasses everything required to stand out in its market segment.
With a max towing capacity of 18,510 lbs when paired with the Duramax Turbo-Diesel, or 17,370 lbs when configured with the gas-powered V8, the Silverado 2500 HD makes a strong case for any trailering task at hand. There is a max payload of up to 3,979 lbs with the gasoline V8 and up to 3,715 lbs of payload capacity with the Duramax. With a heavy-duty air filter, an integrated trailer brake controller, and the suspension package being a standard feature on every model, the Silverado 2500 HD continues to prove why it's the choice full-size pickup for those who need a heavy-duty workhorse.
The capabilities don't start and end with towing and payload hauls, though. The 2023 Silverado 2500 HD is also designed to give work site truckers a ton of utility without ever having to leave the truck's vicinity. Much of this is thanks to a feature known as the Multi-Flex Tailgate. This utility affords users up to six different tailgate configurations that the Silverado 2500 HD can employ, including load stop functionality, a full-width step to easily get into the bed, and a work surface for crafting, measuring, and more.
Combined with the recovery tow hooks, cargo tie-downs, and the ability to configure the Silverado 2500 HD to your liking, there's nothing the truck can't do. You have three different cab formats, two different bed formats, and the ability to seat up to six people across two rows; you have so many different ways to make the Silverado 2500 HD fit your unique style. Tailor the configuration and layout of the truck to your needs, and make the most use of its towing and payload capabilities to handle any and everything you need from a three-quarter-ton truck. You can also indulge in its luxury amenities, such as 10-way power front driver and passenger seats, floor liners, and cargo storage units to get the most out of the 2500 HD's capabilities.
The 2023 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD has a litany of different technologically desirable features throughout the cabin and safety amenities to help make the ride enjoyable and stress-free. From a full array of cabin airbags to alert systems such as forward collision alert, following distance indicator, and rear park assist, the 2500 HD has a complete assortment of active and passive safety features for drivers and passengers alike. Accompanied by the Teen Driver mode, this feature gives parents peace of mind when their teen driver gets behind the wheel. This is all thanks to the Teen Driver’s pre-drive safety checks and report cards. Hence, the 2500 HD further proves its worth as both a family and work vehicle.
The tech isn't entirely centered around safety, though. Other noteworthy tech includes wireless connectivity via Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and voice recognition, in which you can make calls and send text messages via voice-activated controls. An 8-inch digital touchscreen makes it easy to activate, utilize, and navigate the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Plus system with ease or access SiriusXM for a wide array of channel surfing opportunities to access and stream the media that you prefer. You can also utilize the 8-inch driver information center for telematics and vehicle health.
The tech also extends to practical aspects, including Hitch View with guidance, allowing you to easily connect a 5th-wheel or gooseneck hitch to the 2023 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD. A rear vision camera and OnStar support also further add value to the 2500 HD's technology suite, making it quite the pick for anyone who needs a reliable, tech-rich three-quarter-ton pickup. Whether for family or work, the 2500 HD does it all.
