Detailed Review

The Chevy Silverado has a long history of being a trusty and long-lasting pickup truck that has now become a mainstay in the pickup buying clientele. Whether you wanna go to the farmer's market or help a friend move, this loyal Chevy shall be by your side.

The 910 lb-ft. producing V8 engine has been equipped with 445 ponies. The result is an ultra-powerful lugging machine that looks menacing and is as powerful as it looks. The 13000 lbs. towing capacity only adds to the accolades to the already trusty and hardy Chevy.

While the F - 250 comes close to the Silverado and the GMC twin also poses a threat to the title of the best pickup truck ,but all things considered they fail to overtake the Yellow Crossed pickup truck.

We recommend

The LT trim offers the best bang for your buck and adds some much-appreciated upgrades such as the 8-inch touchscreen, 17-inch alloys, heated seats, lower tailgate and many more. The aforementioned features bolster the Silverado’s first position on the table and only aid the already successful lineup.

2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Double Cab Engine

5.5/10

The engineers at Chevrolet went a little bonkers and bestowed the 2500 HD with a roaring V8. Now the interesting or rather an amazing feat achieved by the yellow crossed people is the power and torque of the engine. With only 445 ponied under the hood this mean machine produces 910 lb-ft of torque. Couple that with a smooth 6-speed transmission and you have a lugging monster on 4 wheels.

Class-leading in this parameter the Silverado doesn’t bow to anyone and grins eerily from a distance with 910 lb-ft whilst the nearest rival doesn’t even produce half of this number except the GMC twin.

Acceleration

The chances of you going to a race track and race  trucks but since we have that kind of data with us why not write about it too. The 6.6L V8 does a marvelous job of powering this behemoth and races it to 60 mph is just 6.2s which is on the better side of the table below.

The Nissan Titan is the fastest car on the block with flat 6s on the clock, coming in at a close second the Chevy manages to utilize its large engine for powering the car to 60 mph in just 6.2s. This race track information will surely come in handy for the demolition derby racing events nearby.

Ride & Handling

The truck manufacturers do not give much attention to ride quality and experience as these are workhorse vehicles aimed at getting the job done, but since it’s a Chevy all aspects are given equal importance. The ride quality can be said to be  good and affirming.

You don’t need to be an experienced off-roader or cowboy to handle this beast. The adaptive steering is a nice touch. Chevrolet has taken good measures to ensure that the Silverado offers good ride quality and is tourable for long distances too.

Braking

The braking on pickup trucks leaves much to be desired and isn’t on the impressive side of things. The Chevy takes 138 feet to come to a halt and is tied with the GMC Sierra 2500HD.

The Nissan Titan is the class-leading in this aspect and has a 0-60 mph distance of 134 feet. Whilst being on the worse half of the table the Chevy’s braking isn’t either very bad or very good.

Payload Capacity

Like the French are known are known for their baguettes, the pickup trucks are known for their payload capacities and Chevy on this front does deliver. With a hauling capacity of 3258lbs, it loosens the grip on its throne.

With the Ford F-250 taking the lead in this department, the Silverado comes in at a close second followed by the GMC Sierra and then the Nissan Titan. It is interesting to see that the GMC Sierra and the Chevy Silverado are almost identical car but the Chevy outclasses Sierra in this category.

Maximum towing capacity

Reclaiming the pole position from the Ford the Chevy Silverado shows us why it’s one of the best selling pickup trucks. With a towing capacity of 13000 lbs this yellow logo embossed vehicle is tied with the GMC Sierra on the towing front. Both the trucks shall be able to satiate most people’s towing needs but if this number is not enough for you we’d recommend looking at some not so conventional options.

The Ford  250 with a capacity of 12900 lbs is only second to the GMC and Chevrolet, to be honest, a 100 pounds here or there isn’t a big number and the performance of these three can be said to be identical in most aspects. The Nissan performs abysmally on this front too.

Seating and Comfort

The leather appointments make the Chevrolet a bit more appealing but the monotony sets in the plain interiors and dash offering nothing special. The 6 passengers are greeted with a good amount of space and even rear seating has enough space to comfortably fit even adults.

With the Chevrolet and the GMC taking the lead in this parameter, both of them offer the best in class seating but the comfort factor is overshadowed by the stiff suspension. To put it in simple words the stiffness might instigate arthritis in 30-year-olds.

Infotainment System

The 8.0inch infotainment screen is as big and versatile as rest of the vehicle and comes with wide variety of controls and features. The more practical hard-buttons are a boon, as sitting on a mammoth-sized truck and controlling the infotainment is not very easy with a touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available as standard in Silverado which makes the ‘cowboy’ experience more vibrant and indulging

The king of the table the Ford F-250 is the largest when it comes to dimensions and reigns as the contender supreme in this category. The Chevy and the GMC come in at the second position while the Nissan is at the last place again.

Bed Dimensions

One of the most crucial parts of a pickup truck the bed determines how much or how many things you can fit in the pickup truck. The absolute essential and quintessential part of the pickup comes under scrutiny but the data shows that every truck except the Nissan has similar dimensions.

2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Double Cab Competition

Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Double Cab vs Nissan Titan King Cab

The Nissan offers quicker acceleration times but lacks where it matters. With the lowest payload and towing capacity and not up to the mark competition the Nissan falters when asked to step up to the occasion. The cheapest of the lot the Nissan only seems a viable option for people who’d transport small and light packages and want them delivered quickly.

Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Double Cab vs Ford F-250 Super Duty XL

The Ford outshines the Silverado in the bed department and has a similar performance in the towing capacity. The Torque difference is staggering and will definitely aid in the towing part of things. But why would you buy something that's second in class when the king awaits you.

Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Double Cab vs GMC Sierra 2500HD

The twins that reign table finally reach a point when you’d have to choose one. With similar engine specs, towing capacity and bed space the Silverado cuts costs on interiors and has a better payload capacity than its identical twin. These differences are enough to compel the reviewer to hand the crown to the SILVERADO 2500 HD.

2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Double Cab Final Verdict

The contender supreme now has been crowned the king and emerges victorious amongst its brethren. Slaying its twin in the onslaught the Silverado claims the throne all to itself. The class leading car in almost every aspect the Chevy is the vehicle to buy if you need to haul any kind of load.

Pros

Muscular look

Good driving experience

Humongous power output

Cons

Less payload capacity than Ford’s F-250

Stiff suspension

What's New?

Revamped Duramax diesel engine
