One of the flagships in the lineup of General Motors' Chevrolet is the large Silverado pickup. This machine has been produced since 1998 and during its existence on the market has managed to change more than one generation, so it is not surprising that it bears the title of one of the best "frames".
Current Chevrolet Silverado HD
The current version of the Chevrolet Silverado has been available on the market since 2019 and every year it shows the best and the best sales figures in the United States. Even in 2020, it managed to increase sales volumes, while the bulk of manufacturers worked “in the red”. One of the versions of the Chevrolet Silverado is a model with the HD prefix to its own name. Its update is expected to take place in 2023 and will primarily affect the power capabilities of the large pickup.
According to experts of the American market, a diesel engine with a volume of 6, 6 liters can be installed under the hood of the updated flagship HD. Its output will reach 505 horsepower, and the torque - 1471 N * m. As you know, the current version of the Silverado HD is equipped with a diesel engine of a similar volume, which has much more modest power performance. In particular, its output is equal to 445 "horses", and the torque reaches the "ceiling" of 1233 N * m.
Performance like this would make the Silverado HD the most powerful vehicle in the pickup range. As a guideline, it can be noted that the new version of the Ford F-150 is equipped with a 475 horsepower engine, and the RAM 1500, equipped with a diesel unit from Cummins, has an even more modest output of 420 horsepower. In addition, the developers can offer for the novelty also a modernized automatic transmission. Whether there will be any innovations for the American pickup in terms of its decoration or exterior has not yet been reported.
