HSV have finally released Silverado pricing today with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD WT model starting at $114,990. This is cheaper than what was expected for the entry level Silverado, and some $25,000 cheaper than its closest competitor, the RAM 2500 Laramie. It’s also $15,000 cheaper than the Ford F-150, which is imported by Performax International.
HSV have announced there will be a five-model Silverado line up starting with the $114,990 2500HD WT, and including the 2500HD LTZ at $134,990, the 2500HD LTZ Midnight Edition and Custom Sport at $139,990, and the top of the range 3500HD LTZ, due for release towards the middle of the year at $147,990.
All HSV Silverado’s will come with the infamous V8 turbo-diesel 6.6L Duramax engine, putting out a rather solid 332kW/1234Nm. This will be matched to an Allison 1000 six-speed auto, and also have a heavy duty, locking, rear diff.
Payload capacity on the Silverado’s isn’t overly exciting nudging just under a tonne at 975kg, however all of the 2500HD’s will have a towing capacity of 5890kg, so long as they can get it through ADR & compliance certification. Standard features across all models will include reversing camera’s, front, side and curtain airbags, as well as a myriad of other safety features.
WITH THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE SILVERADO PRICING LISTS – DO YOU THINK IT MAKES THE SILVERADO A CONTENDER TO REPLACE THE 79/200 SERIES LANDCRUISER’S IN A LOT OF DRIVEWAYS AS THE TOW VEHICLE FOR ADVENTURE HOLIDAYS AND GREY NOMADS ALIKE?
