Available in three cab configurations and with two engine choices, Chevrolet's 2010 Heavy Duty Silverado lineup provides a lot of versatility and power in a full-size pickup.
Truly beasts of burden, the Silverado 2500 HD and 3500 HD are backed by a pair of commanding power plants: A 6-liter Vortec V8 with horse power ranging 312 to 360 and a 365 horsepower 6.6-liter Duramax Diesel V8 that churns out a hill climbing and load-hauling 660 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are mated to a heavy-duty 6-speed automatic transmission sending power to the rear wheels or available 4-wheel-drive with low range.
Both the three-quarter ton 2500 HD and the 1-ton 3500 HD are available in standard cab, extended cab, and 4-door crew cab, offering a multitude of bed and cab combinations. For heavy hauling, the 3500 HD is available with the dual rear wheel setup capable of carrying up to 5300 pounds.
Base MSRP for the 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD is $27,465. A 3500 HD Crew Cab 4 wheel drive in LTZ trim and dual rear axle will start at $43,920. The Silverado is backed by a solid 5-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty
With ample power, towing capacity and plenty of setup options, the 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD and 3500 HD are great construction site workhorses that can double as family haulers.
