2015 Chevy Silverado 2500

What’s New for the 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500?

The Chevy Silverado 2500 has been redesigned for 2015, offering updated styling, an improved interior, new safety features, and a new double-cab body style.

2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 Exterior

The Silverado 2500 is a commanding heavy-duty pickup truck. Its square-jawed exterior poise looks plain tough, but not at the cost of its refined style. The Silverado 2500 now offers 6.5- and 8-foot bed lengths, while bumper corner steps and the EZ Lift and Lower tailgate make accessing and loading the truck beds easier than ever.

2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 Performance

The 2015 Silverado 2500 comes with the choice of a 6.0-liter V8 that puts out 360 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque, or an optional turbocharged 6.6-liter diesel V8 that creates 397 hp and 765 lb-ft of torque. The 2015 Silverado earns the ‘heavy duty’ title with its ability to haul up to 3,760 pounds, which increases to 17,900 pounds with a fifth-wheel hitch and when properly equipped.

2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 Efficiency

The EPA does not release fuel ratings for trucks in this class, but we would expect the Silverado 2500 to be comparable to competing heavy duty trucks. Let’s be honest, when you’re buying a truck of this nature, you’re not buying it for the fuel economy.

2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 Interior

The new Silverado 2500 boasts an interior that’s noticeably improved. High-quality materials, attractive design, and comfortable seats make the interior more appealing than ever before. The dash is well-laid out with large, easy-to-read buttons; and the gauge cluster’s graphics are crisp and easy to read in any lighting condition. A 4.2-inch color infotainment display comes standard, along with a four-speaker audio system with USB/iPod integration and an auxiliary audio jack.

2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 Safety

The 2015 Silverado 2500 comes standard with antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control (including trailer sway control), front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. Available upgraded safety features include front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and the Driver Alert package.
