The best part is that this engine does not only run on gasoline. If available, you can even run the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD on Ethanol.

Engine Performance

There is no surprise that that the massive V-8 engine of the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD delivers immense power. The 6.0-liter is rated to produce more than 350 ponies and 380 pounds of torque per feet. Since the truck has been introduced quite recently, the exact gas mileage that it will deliver is not yet specified. However, you can be sure that the technology that Chevy has incorporated into it allows it to provide good mileage. This is thanks to the top notch electronic fuel delivery system and the transmission.

Transmission Options

The transmission of the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD is truly a marvel. The 2500HD is equipped with a 6-speed auto transmission. This is heavy duty transmission that is electronically controlled. The transmission is also equipped with an overdrive system. The best part about the transmission is the towing mode.

Once such feature is the Cruise Grade and of course the Powertrain Grade Braking system.

Interior Styling

Exterior Design
