The 2017 Silverado Heavy Duty line-up takes your work as seriously as you do. With an available new Duramax® Diesel that generates 910 lb.-ft. of torque, you’ll have the confidence necessary to tow the biggest loads. Want more? Silverado HD is the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickup on the road.†
Nearly everything about the available Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel engine is all new, resulting in 910 lb.-ft. of torque, class-leading horsepower and all the towing peace of mind you need. We also reimagined the hood on Silverado HD diesel models with functional vents that enable easier, more confident hauling and trailering.
Silverado HD offers two heavy-duty truck engines: the standard gasoline-powered VortecTM 6.0L V8 and the available Duramax® 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 that generates 910 lb.-ft. of torque. Both work in tandem with our advanced trailering technologies to deliver exceptional control and capability.
The standard VortecTM 6.0L V8 builds power at low rpm for a flatter torque curve. It reaches peak horsepower (360 hp) at only 5400 rpm and peak torque (380 lb.-ft.) at 4200 rpm.
Available Digital Steering Assist† power steering helps make hauling and trailering easier with electronic controls that enhance road holding and stability on the highway.
Fully boxed frame rails made of high-strength steel and nine cross members for lateral support help Silverado 3500HD achieve a maximum payload rating of 7,153 lbs.†
There are more than 1 million Duramax® Diesel engines with Allison® transmissions on the road today with over 100 billion miles of experience. Now we’ve taken that proven power and perfected it, creating this available engine that churns out an earthshaking 910 lb.-ft. of torque, a class-leading 445 horsepower, plus all the confidence you’ll need when towing.
To create a 19% increase in max torque, we rethought nearly everything on the available Duramax Diesel. The cylinder heads are stronger and stiffer, and our taller engine block allows for a more robust piston design. The crankshaft has larger connecting rod journals, and an active drain crankcase oil separator allows for better operation when you’re pulling big loads.
The patented induction system in the Duramax Diesel uses two air inlets — through the new hood scoop and near the fender — to satisfy the intake needs of this powerful engine. This improves performance and helps ensure water and debris intake is a non-issue, even in extreme conditions.
The added horsepower and torque of the Duramax Diesel are benefits you can feel. But we didn’t stop there. This engine also boasts reduced noise and vibration with acoustic rocker covers, isolated injectors, a full-length acoustic lower oil pan and an all-new fuel system.
In addition to big-time towing capability, Silverado HD has several built-in features, including the available Fifth-Wheel/Gooseneck Prep Package, designed to help provide confidence, stability, safety and control.
Detects when your trailer is swaying and applies the truck’s brakes, as well as the trailer’s brakes using the available Trailer Brake Controller, to help bring it back in line.
The available Diesel Exhaust Brake System helps reduce the amount of conventional braking needed while towing or traveling downhill, which can slow wear and tear on your brakes.
Available as dealer-installed Chevrolet Accessories, our durable fifth-wheel hitches feature an easy drop-in design. Combine them with an available factory-installed Fifth-Wheel/Gooseneck Prep Package and you have everything you need to tow big trailers with confidence.
Available from Chevrolet Accessories, this system helps eliminate blind spots, enhances your ability to line up your trailer and hitch when backing up, and can even let you keep an eye on important cargo such as horses or livestock in the trailer.
You need to use the right material for the job. Silverado HD work truck features a roll-formed steel cargo box that’s lighter, stronger and more durable than traditional stamped-steel boxes, so you can secure loads with confidence.
Secure cargo your way with available upper and lower tie-down hooks rated to secure up to 250 lbs.† each. Reconfiguring your setup in the dark? Available LED bed lighting enhances visibility.
The available factory-installed spray-in bedliner adds a permanently bonded layer to your cargo box. Thick, water-sealed and finished with the Chevy bowtie, it’s an effective way to help prevent damage to the backbone of your truck.
Sometimes a step makes all the difference. Prop yourself up with the CornerStep rear bumper, an ingenious feature no competitor offers.
Stay seamlessly connected with available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi.®† Connect up to seven devices to easily access apps, stream music or work on the go, on a signal that’s more powerful than your smartphone.
Keep your business running at maximum efficiency with Commercial Link,† the simple and easy vehicle management system through OnStar®. Receive important reporting and track your vehicle’s location, fuel efficiency, speed, maintenance and more.
