May 15, 2017 01:00 AM EDT | Paul Urban


The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD are two pickup trucks oftentimes described as almost close to perfection. It does come with brute force and strength in a classic and polished body. All these and more make it an easy favorite of enthusiasts.

Both the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD have some updates for this year. For one, the Duramax diesel has been entirely revised. It is reported to be more powerful and refined with 19 percent increase of torque. Such increase is definitely of the essence as it performs the toughest jobs it is faced with.

The 2017 Silverado 2500HD trims have practical LT mated-paired with the crew cab and standard box with price starting at $44,225. If it does come with four-wheel drive, that will be an additional $2995. Other additions may give a total of $56,525. The Standard Crew Cab LT comes with 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, adaptive steering and remote keyless entry.

The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500, on the other hand, is offered in either 4x2 and 4x4 models with Single Rear Wheel or Rear Wheel configuration. Its interior is also impressive for coming in fully equipped with MyLink connectivity and other upgrades to please its owners. Both the 2500HD and 3500HD's design stays true to Chevrolet's heritage for being refined and modern.

In addition, the 2500HD Duramax is identical to the version that has been available for quite some time, however, its massive hood scoop changes everything. It supplements the Duramax's fender-mounted air intake for its exceptional 445-horsepower and 901 pound-feet of torque.

Both the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD's towing capacity has been amped up as well. Both trucks did not have major acceleration problems to boot. Chevrolet is known for coming up with top-of-its-class vehicles and it sure did not go wrong with its latest Silverados.
