2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

Full-size pickup trucks are Detroit’s bread and butter. Last year Chevrolet played fairly conservatively with the Silverado’s first major redesign since the 2007 model. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 shares its platform with the GMC Sierra 1500, but there are significant styling differences to appeal to shoppers with different tastes. Competitors include the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150.

There are five trim levels: WT, LS, LT, LTZ and High Country. For truck buyers who need to tow 20,000 pounds or more there are 2500HD and 3500HD heavy-duty versions of the Silverado, which have been significantly updated for 2015.

This truck does a very good job .

My truck has a 6.6 turbo diesel and an Allison automatic transmission . From East Tawas Michigan to Cape Canaveral Florida my truck averaged 10.4 miles per gallon. It has an exhaust brake that works wonderful in the hills or mountains the transmission keeps it in the gear it needs to be in it is awesome.
