HSV Silverado 3500 specs confirmed


Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) has confirmed specifications of the new Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD LTZ pick-up truck, which commences conversion production in Clayton, Victoria, later this month.

Priced from $147,990 before on-road costs, the heavy-duty Silverado offers a payload of 2.2 tonnes, and a braked towing capacity of a whopping 9.0 tonnes.

To compare with one of the most popular dual-cab utes on the market, a Ford Ranger Wildtrak fitted with the new 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel offers a payload of 961kg and can tow up to 3.5 tonnes.

Additionally, the smaller Silverado 2500 claims a payload of 875kg/975kg (LTZ/WT) and a maximum towing capacity of 5.89 tonnes.

Like its smaller sibling, the Silverado 3500 is powered by a 6.6-litre turbo-diesel V8 making 332kW of power and 1234Nm of torque, sent to the ground via an on-demand four-wheel drive system, heavy-duty locking rear differential and a six-speed automatic transmission.

In terms of equipment, the 3500HD LTZ largely mirrors the 2500HD LTZ, meaning you get stuff like perforated leather seats with 10-way power adjustment, heated and cooled front seats, dual-zone climate control, power-adjustable pedals, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a larger 8.0-inch MyLink infotainment system which also includes Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, along with a seven-speaker Bose audio system.
