When it comes to power, capability, and heavy-duty performance, there’s no better truck out there than the 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. Complete with a suite of trailering technologies, best-in-class horsepower, and the aggressive exterior that has made the Silverado so iconic, this is a 21st Century vehicle that’s truly stepping out into the future of high-powered truck standards.
Take a look below to check out the specs, interior features, exterior benefits, and powerful capabilities that the 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD has to offer.
Specs and Performance
The 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD offers two engine options: the 6.6L Turbo Diesel V8 engine and the Vortec 6.0L V8 engine. The Turbo Diesel engine gets astonishing horsepower and torque at 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque. If top-of-the-line towing power is an important factor for you, then this is the high-powered truck and engine that’ll get any hauling job done with ease. The Vortec engine option delivers 360 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque and is ideal for buyers that don’t need quite as much towing-power but still provides quick-off-the-starting-line capability.
With the 6.6L Turbo Diesel V8 engine, this truck can haul a massive 18,100 lbs, making any of your hauling needs a breeze. In addition, the 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD comes with a suite of smart trailering technologies to make all that power that much easier to use. These high tech trailering features include a tow/haul mode – which reduces shift cycling when you’re hauling on steep grades, StabiliTrak with trailer sway control – which automatically applies vehicle and trailer brakes if swaying is detected, hill start assist – which holds the brakes momentarily as you step on the accelerator to prevent rollback while you’re on a hill, and digital steering assist – which utilizes electronic controls that enhances road holding and stability on the highway.
If that doesn’t impress you, then maybe these next features will. Not satisfied with the above preventative safety measures for hauling needs, the engineers at Chevy also included a trailering camera system to mitigate blind spots and to give you a number of vantage points on your trailer, rear vision camera which provides guidelines when you’re backing up your trailer, and trailering mirrors which enhance visibility when you’re backing up.
And incredibly, that’s not all. The 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD also includes an integrated trailer brake controller, auto grade braking, and 4-wheel disc brakes with Duralife rotors that prevents corrosion and extends rotor life. With a long list of safe trailering options, this Chevy vehicle is indeed a 21st Century truck.
Interior and Connectivity
The 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD offers a premier cabin that’s both comfortable, connected, and convenient. The interior of the cabin is spacious and luxurious, with available premium leather seating in a variety of colors, leather-wrapped steering wheel, wood and chrome accents, and a high-tech and efficient command center. The cabin is also supremely quiet, with triple sealed doors so you never have to fight to be heard again – all outside noise will vanish once your inside this vehicle.
If staying connected is important to you, then this Chevy truck offers the high-tech interior features that’ll keep you connected and plugged in at all times. The 2018 Chevy Silverado is equipped with a 7-inch MyLink Display for all of your navigation, music, smartphone integration, and app needs. In addition, this vehicle includes a number of USB outlets, an available wireless charging pad so you’ll never have to worry about low battery again, as well as a built-in WiFi hotspot so losing service is a thing of the past. With some true science fiction technology, we think you’ll be happy and flying high out of this world in this vehicle.
Additionally, with all the apps currently in the App store, Chevrolet thought they’d add their own app into the mix. When you purchase the 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500HD, you can also download the myChevrolet Mobile app, which allows you to stop/start, unlock/lock, send destinations to your MyLink display, view diagnostic information, and set parking reminders all remotely from your smartphone. Making sure that their truck comes with both power and convenience, we think the manufacturer’s at Chevrolet have truly outdone themselves with this vehicle.

In addition, it’s not all about looks with this vehicle. The exterior comes with a number of beneficial utility options including a factory-installed spray-on bed liner, cargo tie downs and bed lamps to make sure your cargo is secure and is properly illuminated while you’re securing down items, and a corner step rear bumper that makes getting in and out of the bed of the truck easy and simple.
