Even though the 2017 model received a slight redesign, the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado HD will also host some changes. The new exterior styling won’t differ too much from the current, but you will definitely notice what’s new. On the other hand, the new cab will be a lot better from today’s interior because it’s getting significantly more standard equipment. No, the car manufacturer hasn’t forgotten to bring something new under the hood as well.
From now on, the 2018 Silverado HD can’t be ordered in Siren Red Tintcoat, Butte Red Metallic or Pepperdust Metallic exterior colors. Instead, the manufacturer added Havana Metallic and Cajun Red Tintcoat paints. Yes, we agree that a few new color options can’t be called changes at all. However, the new exterior is additionally embellished with two new grilles as well. There is new black mesh grille with 2-bar dark chrome insert, but this comes exclusively with the Z71 package. On the other hand, the High Country model features a new black mesh grille with a 2-bar chrome insert.
Like we said earlier, the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado HD offers better equipment than the predecessor. There is a standard Rear Vision Camera across the entire lineup, as well as a base a 6-speaker sound system. In case you don’t know, the truck had a 4-speaker audio system so far. In addition, the manufacturer decided to kick out the average AM/FM stereo with a 4.2-inch diagonal color display, so the 2018 model now offers a Chevrolet MyLink Radio with 7″ diagonal color touch-screen. In case you need something bigger, you can choose an optional 8-inch diagonal color touchscreen with a standard navigation system. Finally, the producer decided to add a Tire Fill Alert – the system that provides visual/audible alerts when pumping a tire to the recommended pressure.
The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado HD will get an improved Duramax turbo diesel mill. The 6.6-liter V8 oil-burner will deliver 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of twist with boosted towing from 1,550 to 2,850 rpm.
The carmaker hasn’t released any pricing information yet, but we think that the updated truck won’t cost more than the current model.
