If you’re looking for one of the most powerful and capable trucks of the modern day, then you’ve found it in the Silverado 3500HD.

Outside, this truck may be conquering some rough roads, but inside you’ll be sitting in a calm and quiet cabin. Seating is super comfortable and made with dual firm foam for extra support and comfort. Media is controlled through a 7 or 8-inch Chevrolet MyLink diagonal color touchscreen. 4G LTE Wi-Fi is built in for all to enjoy, and there are plenty of USB ports to go around. Wireless charging is included as well along with hands-free voice and bluetooth capability.

There are seemingly endless combinations of configurations, trims, drive types, engine choices, packages, and accessories.

Some special editions are also available like the High Desert, Midnight, and Redline, for those who want to stand out from the crowd.

Features

The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD has durable features made for heavy-duty tasks. To help you steer such a powerful full-size pickup, it comes available with Digital Steering Assist. This power steering makes hauling and trailering much easier with electronic controls for enhanced stability and road holding on the highway. And while you’re on the express way you’ll benefit from the available diesel engine’s reduced noise and vibration with acoustic rocker covers, along with isolated injectors, a full-length acoustic lower oil pan and an all-new fuel system.

The roll-formed steel cargo box in this pickup is lighter, stronger, and more durable than traditional stamped-steel boxes. A spray-in bedliner is available factory installed for more protection, and you’ll find plenty of upper and lower tie-down hooks around the bed of the truck as well. LED bed lighting is also available. To help with ease of use, Chevy is the only make to offer CornerStep, which is an available rear bumper step. This can be extremely useful for loading and unloaded the bed of your truck.

The WT trim comes with a transfer case with a floor-mounted shifter to manage drive modes. In 4WD models you can shift between 2WD High, 4WD High, 4WD Low, and Neutral. These modes will help you switch between highway, snowy, off-road, and everyday driving conditions with ease. Other trims come with an electronic shift transfer case with rotary dial controls for shifting between the same settings.

On top of standard features in the base model like a locking tailgate, assist handles, cruise control, a four-speaker audio system, power door locks, and a tire-pressure monitoring system, there are seemingly endless available features. The Convenience Package adds tinted windows, a remote locking tailgate, remote keyless entry, and more. Accessories range from bed mats and extenders to ladder racks and bed side rails. If you want it in your truck, it’s very likely you can have it. These trucks can be fully tailored to meet each one of your specific needs.

Performance

This is the most powerful truck in the Silverado lineup, and its performance reflects that appropriately. There are two heavy-duty engines available: a 6.0L gas-powered Vortec V8 or a Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8. The diesel engine delivers an outstanding 910 lb-ft of torque and 445 class-leading horsepower while the 6.0L gas engine gives you 380 lb-ft of torque and 360 horsepower. Both come with a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission.

According to Chevy, they’ve stiffened and strengthened the cylinder heads of the Duramax diesel engine for a 19% increase in max torque. This makes the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD with a diesel engine one of the most powerful trucks available today. Both engines work in tandem with trailering technologies to offer amazing control while hauling large loads. The fully boxed frame rails in this truck made of high-strength steel help to achieve a max payload rating of 7,153 pounds.

Let’s get into an exciting part of this truck’s performance: towing & hauling. The standard Vortec 6.0L engine can tow up to 14,600 pounds and the 6.6L Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine can tow up to an incredible 23,300 pounds. To keep your trailer safe and enhance towing performance, the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD also includes Trailer Sway Control, an available Trailering Camera System, and an available Diesel Exhaust Brake System. A Fifth-Wheel Trailer Hitch is also available as a dealer-installed accessory, featuring an easy drop-in design.

To help you get off of the beaten path, a Z71 Off-Road Package is available. This includes 35mm twin tube gas-charged shocks, a 33.6mm front stabilizer bar, an under body transfer case shield, Z71 badge and decals, interior trim plates, lower bumper appearance, Hill Descent Control, and more. If you’ll often be using your Silverado 3500HD to take you and your hauled items across dirt, mud, or rocks then this is a great package for you. An automatic locking rear differential also comes standard.
