?This Year’s 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD
This year’s 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD comes with two different engine options, both sturdy and heavy to horsepower. Connoisseurs of last year’s model will notice an improvement in the standard options but the diesel engine upgrade option remains the same.
The 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD comes standard with a 6 liter V8 that delivers 360 horse power for heavy duty work. Despite being merely the standard option, this option guarantees a towing capacity of more than 3000 pounds, depending on cab options. As compared to the 2009 standard package, the 2010 model markedly improves on last year’s model. The 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD comes standard with a 353 horsepower engine, also a 6.0 liter V8. However, a less powerful engine means less towing capacity and simply less power.
Common to both models of trucks is the improved engine option. The 6.6 liter 365 horsepower turbocharged diesel engine option offers more power and more towing capacity. At up to 13000 pounds, it will haul what you want to haul, even at freeway speeds. In fact, in either configuration, the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD has more power than the Ford F-350 or Dodge Ram 3500.
The options provided by this year’s Chevy Silverado offer power and more power for buyers who want to do some serious heavy lifting. Choose the right engine option for you. Obviously this vehicle would be inappropriate for light lifting and running around town, as can be surmised from the lack of a gas mileage rating anywhere in most reviews of the vehicle.
