Introducing the 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500HD

A Dependable Hard Worker

Chevy has a long history of building dependable, durable trucks and that legacy continues with the brand new 2019 Silverado 2500 Heavy Duty. The 2500HD has been getting recognized for its durability by customers and was named the 2018 Kelly Blue Book "Best Resale Value" among full-size pickups. Take a look at the unique things that Chevy is doing to set the Silverado apart with next-level tech, a best-in-class truck bed, and other features you won't see on any other truck in the segment.

Rugged Stance

The Silverado moved into its third generation in 2014 with major changes to the body and front grill. Many of the rounded edges found in the second generation were squared out for a more assertive and rugged look. Since the full redesign in 2014 the 2500HD has received some modern updates including a redesigned hood available and updated headlights. Most of the changes to the vehicle come on the modernized interior, giving the 2019 a great mix of classic rugged looks and new tech features.

Best In Class Truck Bed

As truck owners know, the bed of your truck is extremely important. Chevy spared no expense to make the truck bed on all Silverados the best on the market. Every inch of the Durabed has been engineered for max durability and ease of use. The truck bed has a best-in-class 63 cu.ft. (shortbox) of volume due to the floor and wall panels being placed closer to the outer panels.

Unique Cornerstep Bumper

The Silverado also features the cornerstep bumper which is a unique feature that you will only see with Chevy trucks. To push the usefulness even further Chevy added a best-in-class 12 fixed cargo tie-downs that can secure up to 500 lbs each which is doubled from its previous 250 lb capacity in recent years.

Improved Steel Durability

The truck bed is made with high strength steel that Chevy just improved from 340MPa to a best-in-class 500MPa which means much higher rigidity and durability. There is also an available factory spray in bedliner that adds to the durability of the truck bed. I will mention that we at McGrath Auto do offer our own HammerCoat spray in bed-liner but I won't sell you on that (I'll just leave this link here if you are interested).

To round out the truck bed, the Silverado is offered with four tailgate variants with some available features you won't find anywhere else.

  • Standard gate
  • Standard gate with Lift Assist
  • Power Lock and Release gate: includes automatic release and power lockable
  • Industry-exclusive power up/down: Available on the LTZ and standard on the High Country. Features a power tailgate that can be controlled with the key fob or with a button in the cabin. Includes power lockable.

Capability and Comfort

The cabin of the Silverado 2500HD is designed for a spacious and comfortable ride even on long rides. Chevy used only high quality materials to create a quiet cabin that can serve as an office on the go from anywhere. The lower trim WT and LT models come with durable cloth seats while the LTZ and High Country come with leather bucket seats.

Tech Features

Silverado 7 inch Infotainment

7 inch Infotainment System

The newest tech comes standard with a 7 inch infotainment system that features both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for the simplest hands free connectivity. The display pairs well with the standard back-up camera with guiding lines to help you lineup your trailer hitch with ease.

Advanced Trailer System

The infotainment system is full of useful apps like the available Advanced Trailer System. This app is a one stop shop for a wide range of trailer features like the automated trailer light test that allows you to check all your trailer lights all by yourself before hitting the road. It also pairs nicely with the myChevrolet smart phone app that has its own towing checklist and other great features.

All-Around Capability

Most truck buyers care more about the performance capabilities of their truck than any little feature and that is for good reason. Chevy brings two great engine options to the well-equipped Silverado 2500HD to create the perfect all-around truck that can do it all.

Independant control arm suspension

Top of the Line Suspension

As far as ride quality goes, Silverado is top of the list with the only independent control-arm and coil-spring front suspension in the segment. They are also fitted with leaf springs in the rear to help cushion heavy payloads. The only vehicle in the heavy-duty segment that competes in ride quality is the Ram 2500HD equipped with the available air suspension on the upper level trims which will cost far more than even the highest trim Silverado 2500.

Vortek 6.0L V8

The Silverado 2500HD engine options are wide ranging and have options for all drivers. The standard engine fitted on the 2500 is the 6.0L VORTEK V8 with an impressive 360 horsepower and 380 lb.ft. of torque. This standard engine is very capable with a max towing capacity of 9800 lbs and a massive payload of capacity of 3233 lbs. The standard VORTEK V8 is sure to fit the needs of most truck buyers but if you are in need of more power Chevy has you covered.

6.6L Duramax V8

Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel

The beefy 6.6L DURAMAX Turbo-Diesel V8 is sure to take care of any job you need tackled. The DURAMAX outputs 445 horsepower and a massive 910 ft.lb of torque. There is definitely a reason the DURAMAX name is so recognizable and that has to do with the legendary performance that it has demonstrated over the years. The Turbo-Diesel V8 outputs a hefty max towing capacity of 13000 lbs and a max payload of 2803 lbs. The slight dip in max payload is mostly due to the heavier curb weight that comes with the engine upgrade.

2019 Chevy Silverado 2500HD safety

Newest in Safety Tech

Chevy has done a great job bringing the newest safety technology to its 2019 lineup and the Silverado 2500HD is no exception. While most other vehicles in the chevy lineup come with many of these advanced safety features standard the Silverado 2500HD Work Truck is a bit more stripped down. All Heavy Duty Silverados come standard with a 6 airbags, StabiliTrak stability control with Proactive Roll Avoidance, and Teen Driver Technology.

Best-in-Class Suspension

As you move to higher trims you get the more advanced features including Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and the Safety Alert Driver Seat. This paired with the high strength steel frame and cabin designed for visibility you are sure to feel a sense of comfort behind the wheel.


Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty

All 2019 Chevrolet vehicles come with a 3 year, 36,000 mile (whichever comes first) limited warranty. There is no deductible for eligible warrantable repairs that are required due to defects to material and/or workmanship from the delivery date of the vehicle.
