What does it mean for owners when they learn their truck is the most powerful in class in terms of towing and payload? One way to know is to see in action just what that looks like.

Do drivers of trucks truly notice the power and performance? Chevy thought testing out their truck against one of their biggest competitors, Ford, would show off the difference, but we’ll take a closer look to see how much of a difference there is between Chevy and the competition.

Drag Race Comparison

The Ford F-350 Super Duty couldn’t quite hang with the Chevy Silverado 3500HD in a straight line quarter mile drag race. While the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD was able to prove how much faster it can move while towing the same amount of weight, winning in a drag race, there’s additional features that show how much better Chevrolet trucks can be over their competition. (Although, it’s never a bad thing to win a race against your competition.)

New Features for the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD

When you have a powerful vehicle like the new 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD, you know you can tow just about anything, but the truck’s premium features aren’t just about what you can move outside of the vehicle. You’ll be moved with what you find inside the vehicle, from a spacious cabin that has the updated MyLink system with available 8-inch touchscreen and a 6-speaker Bose audio system. The truck also has rear backup cameras to allow for easier loading on the truck bed with front and rear park assist.

Closer Look At The Various Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD Trims

From the Regular Cab, Crew Cab and Double Cab, to regular or long beds, there are numerous ways to craft your specific 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD. Even options like gasoline or diesel engines and two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive are available options for an owner to decide on.

The Chevrolet 3500 HD trim levels range from the base-level Work Truck to mid-level LT and the further upscale LTZ to the premium trim, the luxurious High Country. The MyLink with 7-inch touchscreen comes standard for every Silverado 3500HD as well as Bluetooth, Apple Carplay, Android Auto and rear backup camera. The Silverado 3500HD LT offers upgrades ranging from an 8-inch MyLink touchscreen and power mirrors and power windows, which don’t come standard on the Silverado 3500HD Work Truck trim.

The Silverado 3500HD LTZ is available as a Double Cab or Crew Cab with standard leather seating, heated front seats and fog lights with a 110-volt outlet. Power-sliding rear window with defroster is also included.

The upgraded Silverado 3500HD High Country trim has full-leather front bucket seats with a navigation system and it is only available with a Crew Cab. Additionally, the Silverado 3500HD has a different interior design and center console than the rest of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD line-up.

What To Expect

As the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD showcases tremendous towing power, there’s no mistaking how important a vehicle’s towing capacity and ability to move quickly comes into play. Whether driving up a mountain or pushing 13,000 pounds of cargo across the country, having a reliable heavy duty truck that’s capable of making the journey safely is the goal for all drivers and that’s exactly what you’ll be able to expect with the Silverado 3500 HD.
