2010 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

General:

The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 2010 is built on a robust version of General Motor’s full-size pickup truck platform - it’s been normalized to every GM pickup truck. The HD trucks even got the same mechanicals. They are differentiated only with interiors and exterior styling. All of them can have a powertrain with Duramax diesel engine and transmission made by Allison, which continues to draw rave reviews. The only viewable changes are very detailed. the USB audio playback with recharging for certain MP3 devices - is it a change?? And two new exterior paint colors: Taupe Gray Metallic and Sheer Silver - that’s no change at all.

Interior:

General Motors wanted to improve its interiors and they have paid a lot for the Silverado’s spacious cab. All the materials are really softer it can be feel by the first touch, the horrible gaps are tighter and looks smoother. The surfaces in Siverado are some kind of flush. The designers took their inspiration from the Tahoe which is strictly targeted to the luxury owners. The other trims looks like those who use their trucks as a utility vehicle. While General Motors does not have many interior packages but the Ford got them enough to feed all of your needs.

General

The new 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a pure American pickup designed strictly as 100% utility car, without unecessary gadgets. The Silverado is produced in 3 standard cab versions - regular, extended and crew cab. On regular and extended cabs mounted cargo beds are 6feet long in standard and 8feet in longer version. The crew cab has got a short, only 5-feet bed. Every of these configurations are accessible in 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive. Chevrolet Silverado XFE has in offer an EPA estimated fuel economy of 15/21 mpg city/highway, but it’s available only on two-wheel-drive trucks. It’s about 1 mile per gallon less than other, non-XFE models.

Exterior

The Silverado is made using the GMT900 platform, just like the GMC Sierra 1500. There are some silhouette styling and interior differences. But it’s obvious that General Motors wants to distinguish its the Silverado between Sierra. The well known exterior silhouette is hard to differentiate, even when GM has mounted an unique front fenders with grille and bumpers, cargo box and front and rear lamps. Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has got amazingly wide rear door available only on extended cab models. It’s useful to take passengers in with comfort and to load cargo easily.
