With so many pickup trucks available on the market these days, it's hard to know which one to choose. Chevrolet has led the pack for decades with the Silverado 2500. But what has made this model endure and impress year after year? Let's learn about the Chevrolet Silverado 2500, and how it stands out from the rest.


One of the defining features of the Silverado 2500 is the powertrain. A 6.6-liter V8 engine pumps out 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque. Upgrade to the turbocharged 6.6-liter V8 engine, and you will see 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. These are incredible performance numbers for a vehicle of this class. The Ram 2500, a similar pickup truck, only provides a maximum of 420 horsepower, trailing the Silverado. The base model Ram 2500 only offers a 6.4-liter engine, while the Silverado 2500 features a 6.6-liter engine.


The Chevy Silverado 2500 has an impressive suite of tech features for Charlotte, MI drivers to choose from. The base model Silverado 2500 has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which allows you to seamlessly connect your mobile devices to your truck. This must-have feature is reserved for the Ram 2500's second trim level.
