The Ford Motors came out with a redesigned and revamped version of its popular Ford F Series super duty pickup. Now, there is news coming through that Chevrolet is also making some changes and modifications to the Chevy Silverado HD to continue their struggle for dominance in the pickup truck in the American market. Both these American companies want to enjoy the best share in the market.
Chevy Silverado came with heavy updates for the 2015 model year. It was resculpted in order to accommodate new styling clues and make it super duty from the Silverado 1500 light duty. The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado HD does not come with exterior modifications, but there are a few ramifications done on its technical aspects as well.
The super duty trucks might seem as if they are work trucks. But, nowadays the Super duty truckles offer more luxury and technical features that are offered in regular cars. The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado HD comes with the MyLink infotainment system with HD radio and 7 and 8 inch touch screens that you normally find in semi luxury or luxury cars. The 8 inch infotainment screen will provide you with the option of opting for Google’s Android auto or Apple’s CarPlay that is coming on the vehicle in March next year.
Another new feature is the Digital Steering Assist feature that will offer electronic steering control for better stability. You will enjoy better steering feel and greater responsiveness even when you are towing heavy loads.
The Chevy Silverado for 2016 is offered with an array of bed, cab and powertrain options. You can find 2500 HD and 3500 HD models on offer that will be coming out with two door regular cabs, a double cab as well as a crew cab with four doors. With four trim levels, two cargo box lengths, Drivetrain and Power train engine configurations, three cab sizes and two versions, Chevy Silverado HD offers everything that a heavy truck user would want.
The engine choices are likely to remain unchanged from the 2015 model Silverado. The Silverado HD will be offered with a 6.6 liter turbo diesel V8 engine that produces 397 HP of power and 765 pounds-feet torque or with a 6 liter V8 gasoline engine that is offered with 360 HP of power and 380 lb-ft of torque. Both the engines will be mated to a six speed automatic transmission gearbox. The truck also comes with a bi-fuel option that allows you to run the truck on natural gas.
