Strength. Reliability. Dependability.
For over 100 years, Chevrolet has forged an enviable reputation for building strong and dependable “full-size” pick-up trucks. And now, HSV is bringing Chevrolet’s pinnacle model – the Silverado – to Australia and New Zealand.
Power, payload and towing capability are what Silverado is famous for and all these attributes are reflected in the five-model 4x4 Crew Cab line-up offered:
2500HD LTZ “Midnight” Edition
2500HD LTZ “Custom Sport”
Power to the people
These heavy-duty trucks perform as aggressively as they look. All five vehicles in this legendary range, share the same, uncompromising, powertrain. The Duramax 6.6L Turbo Diesel V8 engine pumps out a maximum 332kW of power and 1,234Nm of torque and is mated to an Allison 1000 6-speed automatic transmission. With 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and an automatic locking rear differential, the Chevrolet Silverado range redefines rugged.
Flex Some Muscle
When you’ve got a big load to tow, the Chevrolet 2500HD Silverado range makes life easy, offering a maximum towing capacity of up to 5.89# tonnes and technologies designed to help you haul with confidence.

Broad shoulders to carry the load
Go ahead, pile it on! The Silverado 2500HD range makes light work of even the heaviest of loads, with a maximum payload of 975kg^.
^Maximum payload capacity based on kerb weight excluding accessories and occupants. Front and rear axle loads must not be exceed.
Forget the office. Work from the cabin.
On the inside, the Silverado 2500HD LTZ is anything but truck-like. Heated and ventilated Jet Black perforated leather-appointed bucket seats offer personalized comfort for the driver and front passenger and feature 10-way power driver and front passenger seat adjustment, 2-way power lumbar control and 2-position driver memory. Dual zone automatic climate control enhances cabin comfort, while power-adjustable pedals allow the driver to set at the most comfortable position.
A leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, and a steering column with rake and reach adjustment, add to driver comfort and convenience as does the Chevrolet MyLink audio system which includes an 8" diagonal high-definition, full-colour touch-screen that allows you to easily navigate radio content and operate its many features including BOSE sound system, USB ports, Auxiliary jack, Bluetooth streaming audio for music and most phones, and hands-free smartphone integration, Voice-activated technology for radio and phone.
A Driver Information Centre delivers added convenience with front and side-impact airbags for the driver and front passenger, and head curtain and seat-mounted side-impact airbags for the front and rear outboard seating positions, offering added confidence.
