Both versions have the similar cabin that’s presented for the 2019 Silverado 1500, though the sole borrowed body-work is the roof structure. The All-New Silverado HD delivers two outstanding engines specifically designed to fulfill the needs of heavy-duty pickup truck buyers. That two engine choices are:
All-new 6.6L V8 Gasoline Engine
The Silverado 2500 and 3500 are readily available with a brand new 6.6L gas engine V8 that delivers 401-hp along with 464 lb-ft of torque with upgraded 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine specifications are:

Reaching that maximum tow number needs a pretty unique platform, that is a standard pickup’s cab Silverado HD due to two-wheel-drive along with dual-rear-wheels in the dust. Surprisingly, the necessary engine to the huge job will be the 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel V8 that delivers 445 horsepower or 332 kilowatts and 910 pound-feet of torque like on recent versions.
That will be available far more power as compared to the Ram, although even less distort. Ford hasn’t unveiled the tow numbers for its Ford Super Duty truck facelift yet.
