Chances are, if you’re shopping in the 3,000 level of the pickup truck segment, you’re looking for a few things – namely, strength. And when it comes to towing and payload, it’s hard to find a heavy-duty truck that rivals the Silverado 3500HD, a powerhouse with the ability to accommodate over 7,000 pounds in the bed, and to hitch 36,000 pounds when towing. Those beefy numbers are backed by a spacious cabin outfitted with plenty of features to ramp up comfort, and a suite of innovative technology to boot.
And chances are, if you’re in the market for a 2023 Chevy Silverado 3500HD in the Texas area, you’re looking for a dealership that can meet your expectations. Here at Glenn Polk Auto, we have Chevy experts ready to show you around the latest Silverado 3500HD and we offer affordable prices to make it even easier for you to get yourself a set of keys to this high-end pickup. Start clearing out that garage.
With sheer power as one of the crowning achievements for the Silverado 3500HD, let’s start by taking a look at the metal that fills the engine bay. Standard equipment is a 6.6-liter, gas-powered V8 engine that breaks the 400 horsepower barrier and rounds out with 464 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, the powertrain is capable of pulling up to 17,370 pounds behind the bed.
If you’re looking for the mouth-watering numbers highlighted above, allow us to draw your attention to the second engine option – a 6.6-liter, turbo-diesel V8. The Duramax engine is bolted to a 10-speed Allison automatic transmission that helps to balance power and performance for a smoother ride. At its peak, the diesel powertrain achieves 445 horsepower and over twice that in torque. With 910 lb-ft of torque, the diesel-powered Silverado 3500HD sits near the top of its class in output and is able to tow as much as 36,000 pounds. Again, if you’re looking for strength, chances are, this one has what you need.
Beyond power, the Silverado 3500HD opens its doors to as many as five passengers and offers plenty of leg, shoulder and head space for those sitting up front, as well as those in back. It makes it a great option for those who need the power, but who also need a practical vessel for hauling the family.
