Trucks.com Presents Quick Facts to Know about 2019 Silverado 2500 HD
As we continue to plod through the winter months and look forward to the coming of spring here at Jim Butler, many customers have made their final decision and are talking to our first-rate finance department to conclude their New Year’s purchase. Trucks are one of the items that find their way the most rapidly off the lot, and the 2019 Silverado 2500 HD is a three-quarter ton work truck that is available in regular, crew and double-cab configurations featuring both long and standard beds. The staff on duty at Trucks.com offered up a nice piece of blogging work last week outlining the details and specs, and generally praising the trusty and reliable workhorse that is the 2500 HD.
The truck is built on GM’s full-size K2 platform, which is now shared with the GMC Sierra HD. It is available in four trims: Work Truck, LT, LTZ, and High Country. The top-of-the-line High Country trim is available on Crew Cab models only, and now comes equipped with 20-inch chromed-aluminum wheels, heated and vented custom leather-appointed front seats, a 6-inch chrome assist step, and completely rockin’ Bose premium audio system. Thorough warranty coverage is one of the first items of priority for those purchasing a new truck have in mind, and all 2019 2500 HD trucks are covered by a 3-yr/36,000 – mile limited bumper-to-bumper warranty, as well as a 5-year/50,000 – mile limited powertrain warranty.
The LT Trim provides you 17-inch aluminum wheels as standard, with 18-inch and 20-inch chromed-aluminum wheels available as options on higher trim levels. The available engine options for the 2019 Silverado are a 6.0-liter Vortec V8, or a 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V8. The 6.0-liter Vortec V8 generates 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque, and the 6.6-liter V8 Duramax diesel engine cranks out 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. To properly have the ability to conquer any inclement weather condition, all-wheel drive and selectable driving modes are standard on all models. A six-speed automatic transmission is on deck equipped with tow/haul mode and Auto Grade Braking, which helps reduce the amount of braking needed during an all-important towing session.
High numbers absolutely help to move units, and the maximum towing capacity for the 2019 Silverado 2500 HD is an astounding 15,400 pounds. To obtain this performance, you need the fifth-wheel hitch and Duramax 6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 engine. Standard safety equipment onboard includes a rear-vision camera, OnStar, and Teen Driver mode, which is particularly amazing: gone are the days where the younger drivers in the family can get away with speeding, or even hiding their destinations from parents.
Optional safety and driver-assistance technology included forward-collision alert, front and rear-park assist and lane-departure warning. When you come to make our acquaintance and check out the new Silverado, ask about the available rear-seat Blu-Ray DVD entertainment system: it keeps your passengers from feeling pent-up angst and lets them enjoy their choice of picture while the mile markers fly by!
