Chevrolet SIlverado 3500HD

The Silverado 3500HD Gets the Toughest Jobs Done

The Silverdo series is one of the most trusted names in the full-sized pick-up line. Contractors, tradesmen, and construction workers alike around the Glendale Heights and Bloomingdale areas have come to rely on the Silverado 3500HD and its tough power output. The 2013 model is now available at Sunrise Chevrolet, in Glendale Heights, just east of Bloomingdale Road on E North Avenue. With a tough design that’s recognized everywhere, the 3500HD has been an essential part of the working day since its debut.

History of the 3500HD

The Silverado line first appeared in 1998 for the 1999 model year. GM’s then-current GMT400 C/K line ran along side the Silverado’s before it was discontinued for the next model year. The HD Silverado line-up would be introduced in 2001, including ‘heavy duty’ models of the 1500, 2500, and 3500. HD models include tougher engine options and transmissions for increased loads and hauling.

Though the 3500HD typically offers the same engine and transmission options as the 2500HD, the 3500HD models have two sets of twin wheels at the rear, as well as a stronger suspension system.

The Current Model

The 2013 Silverado 3500HD is available with two different engine options:

  • A 6.0L Gas/Ethanol Vortec V8 Engine with 322hp and 380 lb-ft of torque, with either 2WD or 4WD
  • A 6.6L Turbocharged Diesel V8 with 397hp and 765 lb-ft of torque, with 4WD

When properly equipped, the Silverado 3500HD can handle a maximum payload of 7,222lbs and tow up to 23,000lbs. All models come with a heavy duty, automatic rear locking differential, helping you to get up and go even when the earth is fighting against you.

As for features, the 3500HD is available with Bluetooth connectivity for select cell phones, OnStar, StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control, and remote keyless entry.
