The 2023 Chevrolet Silverado HD offers five trim levels: WT, LT, Custom, LTZ, and High Country. The Custom trim level is only available for the Silverado 2500HD.


The latest Silverado HD carries on the tradition of offering a wide variety of practical exterior features. To make accessing the truck bed easier, it comes with the standard CornerStep rear bumper and offers the six-function Multi-Flex tailgate. The exterior also offers a suite of cameras that can provide up to 15 camera views, so you can take the guesswork out of maneuvering your trailer.


Silverado HD trim levels range from the no-frills Work Truck to the luxurious Denali model. The entry-level trim features an easy-to-clean rubberized floor that’s ideal for dirty jobs. Higher trims come with carpeted floors and comforts like leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and under-seat storage bins.

When it comes to tech tools, the interior of the Silverado HD comes standard with smartphone syncing capabilities, which are accessible via the 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system. Higher trims offer an 8-inch infotainment system display, a seven-speaker Bose® premium sound system, and built-in GPS navigation.


The 2023 Silverado HD lets you choose between two powertrain options: a 6.6-liter gas-powered V8 that pairs with a six-speed automatic and delivers 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque, and a Duramax® turbo-diesel V8 that matches with a 10-speed automatic and offers 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.

When it comes to capability, the maximum towing and payload capacities differ between the Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD. When properly equipped, the 2500HD model can haul a maximum payload capacity of 3,979 pounds, or manage a maximum towing capacity of 18,510 pounds. The Silverado 3500HD can tow up to 36,000 pounds when equipped with the diesel engine. Plus, it boasts a maximum payload capacity of 7,442 pounds.


Like many pickup trucks, the Silverado HD doesn’t come standard with a wealth of safety technology. The entry-level model is fairly bare bones, coming with the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system and the Rear Vision Camera to help you maneuver. However, you can opt for a range of driver-assist technologies, including Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, HD Surround Vision, and Automatic Emergency Braking.
