CR Model Summary
The HD Silverado and its GMC Sierra HD twin are designed for heavy towing and hauling. The 6.0-liter V8 and 6.6-liter turbodiesel, both mated to a six-speed automatic, carried over on the 2015 redesign. There is also a natural gas (CNG) version of the 6.0-liter V8. GM said that the new cabs and interiors provide increased space and comfort, with extensive storage space. The new Silverado HD is available with safety features such as forward collision alert, lane departure warning, and front and rear park assist. Head-curtain and seat-mounted side air bags are standard.
