Chevy Silverado 2500 4dr Long Bed

For drivers looking to accomplish something out of the ordinary with their Silverado 2500 4-Door Long Bed, there is the HD variant, which is a heavy-duty light truck. It is a strengthened version of the Silverado light-duty that is available in the 1500HD, 2500HD, and 3500 models. The 1500HD was launched in 2001 and offers a Vortec 6000 V8 with 300 hp at 5200 rpm and 360 ft•lbf of torque at 4000 rpm with a Hydra-Matic four-speed transmission. Up one rung, the 2500HD also offers the Duramax V8 with 310 hp at 3000 rpm and 605 ft•lbf of torque at 1600 rpm. This model is also offered with the Vortec 8100 V8 with 340 hp at 4200 rpm and 455 ft•lbf of torque at 3200 rpm. Further, the 2500HD has an available five-speed Allison 1000 transmission. Even more impressive is the Silverado 3500, which offers the same engine and transmission features that the 2500HD does, however it is typically equipped with twin wheels at the rear and has a much stronger chassis. These HD models are mostly needed for towing and high-weight cargo transportation. The Chevrolet Silverado badge itself is the latest full-size pickup truck from Chevrolet. There is also a GMC counterpart named the GMC Sierra. This truck has really made a name for itself in the very competitive truck market. Trucks are an odd vehicle to sell because people take them very seriously and expect some serious working power from these models. No one wants to go haul their boat only to find that their truck doesn’t have enough power to climb a hill. As of 2006, the Silverado pickup is the second-best selling vehicle in the United States, sitting only behind the Ford F-Series pickup truck. The Silverado is actually made of two different platforms: one for standard and one for heavy-duty models. Sales for the Silverado 4dr have been spectacular with according to Autodata Corp, 58,696 Silverados were sold in Feb 2007. When that is compared with Ford F-Series sales of 55,251 it looks like the Silverado is holding its own quite well.
