The new 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
comes equipped with a new diesel engine and air intake system. These changes and its towing abilities make this truck king in its class. The likes of the Ram 2500, Ford F-250 Super Duty, and GMC Sierra 2500HD, some of its major competitors in the market, just can’t match its superiority. The Silverado 2500 diesel provides the driver with superior comfort, an easy drive, and a quiet cabin. The latest Chevy Silverado HD 2500 lineup comes in WT (work truck)
, LTZ, LT, and High Country trims, with some special editions wedged in between for customization. The immensely capable 2500’s largely carryover chassis is surprisingly accommodating and wieldy. When compared to the Ford, the Chevy 2500 is considerably easier to climb.
2018 Silverado 2500HD Fuel Mileage
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) doesn’t rate vehicles this big, so there aren’t any official fuel economy ratings. Nonetheless, most drivers get around 14-17 miles per gallon on the highway and 8-12 mpg in the city, depending on the load. On average, the diesel Silverado 2500 HD’s best-in-class 15 mpg is remarkable for a truck of this size. It is the leader in fuel efficiency as its competitors Ford 250 and Ram 2500 both reported an overall 14 mpg.
2018 Silverado 2500HD Fuel Efficiency
The Silverado HD
is the most fuel-efficient pickup in its class when it's not towing or hauling. The truck has two engines. Its standard power plant is a 6-liter V8, which provides 380 lb-ft of torque and 360 horsepower. Drivers looking for more pulling power capabilities can go for the 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8, which generates a massive 910 lb-ft of torque and 445 hp. The gasser is rated up to 3,534 pounds in the back and is considered to be the payload champ.
The Silverado 2500 exhibits characteristics that make it a rough-and-tumble workhorse supplemented with enough modern amenities and creature comforts that make it a versatile mobile workplace. The revised Duramax engine is more refined and more powerful, with 19 percent torque boost. The Duramax diesel is designed to enhance fuel efficiency and this means that you get the most miles per gallon possible. Add the engine to the Allison transmission and you’ll get nothing short of a tag-team win. This impressive union allows the truck to benefit from a swell of smooth flow of power and towing is just a breeze. A new hood scoop induction system was added and the drivetrain received advanced components. That helps the big rig
jump to 60mph in 8.2 seconds.
