The refreshed 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD heavy-duty truck has been spied testing again, but now less camouflaged. The upcoming model will gain updated styling and more power under the hood if rumors are true.
As far as we know, the class-leading truck will be available with the new V8 powertrain that should produce 505 horsepower (377 kilowatts) and 1,085 pound-feet (1,471 Newton-meters). Thanks to that, the Silverado HD will be on the top in terms of overall power. According to Chevy, buyers can expect this truck to debut sometime next year, probably in the second half. At the same time, we hope rivals like the Ford Super Duty and Ram HD will also hit markets.
2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Redesign
The new spy photos of the new 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD just came out, and it seems that the Chevy will make some modifications to the body’s truck. First of all, we don’t expect a complete redesign, but there should be a couple of changes. As we can see, the forthcoming truck will come with a wider grille that will probably keep the same pattern as the previous model.
Also, we noticed the new LED headlights are positioned lower as well as the fog lights. In general, the most exciting news is that the Chevrolet Silverado HD trucks will receive integrated Super Cruise driving technology that will be able to handle trailering with ease.
More Modern Cabin
Inside, the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD will be no less comfortable than the lighter Silverado 1500. Actually, the manufacture will use the same treatment on the new 2500 HD model, and this time, we should expect more quality and plenty of new technology. The infotainment system of the 10.1-inch will be standard, as well as the Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, two USB ports, Bluetooth for two devices, AM/FM radio, and a 2-speaker audio setup.
Safety is much better, and according to Chevy, the new truck will include front/side/head curtain airbags, trailer sway control, and a programmable Teen Driver key.
2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Powertrain Specs
The 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD will probably keep the same aging engines and deploy one new. Reportedly, the manufacturer will introduce a new Duramax engine that will produce 505 horsepower (377 kilowatts) and an impressive 1,085 pound-feet (1,471 Newton-meters).
If that happens, the Chevrolet Silverado HD will be the first full-size diesel pickup truck to exceed the 500-hp mark. The current Ford Super Duty produces 475 hp (354 kW) from its 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8. However, the king is till the Ram and its 6.7-liter Cummins that delivers 1,075 pound-feet (1,457 Nm) of twist.
Debut and Price
The release date of the new 2023 Chevrolet Silverado HD will happen next year. The forthcoming truck was spied testing a few days ago, featuring less camo than the first time it was spotted. It looks undoubtedly more attractive than before, and we expect it to provide a more comfortable ride.
As mentioned, the Chevrolet Silverado HD will come with a new engine that should place this truck higher. Stay tuned for more information about its specs and price.
