According to many rumors, the upcoming 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD could get a new diesel powertrain with over 505 horsepower. We also got information that the redesigned model would go on sale next year, featuring some refreshments inside and out.
However, if rumors about power are true, the styling of the upcoming Silverado won’t be the most exciting news. Our insider claims that the next Silverado will be powered by the Duramax diesel. The V8 will power this truck producing at least 505 horsepower (377 kilowatts) and 1,085 pound-feet (1,471 Newton-meters). Generally speaking, if that happens, the Silverado HD will at the top of the pack in terms of overall power.
2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Exterior
The 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD is one of the robust among heavy-duty pickups. In general, first thing you see on this truck is its huge grille, which can reach the necks of some adults. Also, for 2023, the manufacturer will revise front end adding more attractive hood and headlights.
At the back, this Silverado will continue with the same DuraBed that is exclusive with heavy-duty models. According to Chevy, with the long-bed option, you’ll get a class-leading volume of 83.5 cubic feet. Like the previous model, the new one will come with the same standard side steps that make it easier to access. The latest Silverado HD also offers another great feature, a power-operated tailgate.
Like the half-ton Silverado 1500, the upcoming 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD will be no less modern and spacious. The new truck will offer a very roomy cabin that can fit three to six passengers depending on cab configuration. Actually, we recommend going for a roomier crew cab over the double cab models.
Inside, the Silverado HD has the basics like the 7-inch infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, air conditioning, and so on. Moreover, upscale models like the High Country offer more premium cabin including heated and ventilated seats, leather upholstery, and a head-up display. Still, the Silverado’s interior cannot match the tech-rich Ram Heavy Duty or Ford Super Duty.
Under the hood, the upcoming Silverado HD models will be powered by the Duramax diesel. According to the news, the manufacturer will use a V8 engine that should deliver at least 505 horsepower (377 kilowatts) and 1,085 pound-feet (1,471 Newton-meters).
By comparison, the forthcoming Ford Super Duty thanks to a 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 produces 475 hp (354 kW). However, when it comes to torque, the crosstown rival Ram is the king in class. This model comes with a 6.7-liter Cummins I6 producing 1,075 pound-feet (1,457 Nm) of twist. If the report proves accurate, the Silverado HD will be placed at the top in terms of overall power.
When Can We Expect the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD?
Last month, the updated half-ton Silverado was revealed, and we can expect the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD to go on sale sometime in 2022. Most likely, it will be available in stores in the second half of the year. As we stated, the new model will reportedly introduce some refreshments, and it could deploy the new potent Duramax diesel option.
Whether it gets, it remains to be seen, but some kind of engine increase is pretty much guaranteed. The price is not yet available, but it should be in the coming months. The current 2500 model with regular cab starts at $34,700, plus a $1,595 destination charge. However, the much bigger one-ton 3500 models begin slightly higher, at $35,000.
