2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LTZ Crew Cab review notes - AutoWeek

EDITOR WES RAYNAL: The HD Silverado takes all the light duty truck's improvements and applies them to the big rig. That means a much stiffer frame and cab, more sound deadening and better materials inside, better sealing from wind noise…. I love the new look of the 2015 Chevy Silverado HDs , especially the big chrome front end. For a HD truck, the steering feels good, quick and accurate (compared to other HD pickups) and the ride might be the best part. The light duty Silverado's quietness and ride control are good enough for us to name it Best of the Best (“on the freeway it drives like a luxury car,” we said), and this is close. HD pickups can heave and hop over broken pavement. On the freeway it's as quiet as the normal Silverado thanks to the aero work and insulation. If I was going for a HD I'd definitely pick the diesel and enjoy the 765 lb-ft of torque. The interior looks to me straight from the light-duty truck and that's fine. Like the standard Silverado, this cockpit is well built from quality materials, and the seats are comfortable for long hauls. For Best of the Best testing, we spent days behind the wheel with nary a complaint, and I'd have no trouble doing that here as well. From the BoB logbook: “If you're in the market for a truck, the question isn't whether you want a Silverado. Source: autoweek.com
