The new 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD is coming, and we can expect it to be stronger than ever. The refreshed half-ton pickup truck is being spied recently, and its body is fully covered with camo. According to many reports, the forthcoming model will likely debut in 2022 as the 2023 model year.
If rumors about power are true, we can expect this model to receive some changes under the hood. In general, updated styling won’t be the big news for the Silverado HD. From the information that we got, we can expect the class-leading horsepower and torque. The V8 will allegedly power this truck, producing 505 horsepower (377 kilowatts) and 1,085 pound-feet (1,471 Newton-meters). These numbers would place the new Silverado HD at the top of the pack in terms of overall power.
2023 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD First Look
Spy shots of the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD are available, and we noticed some improvements over the previous generation. The larger heavy-duty truck is still under heavy wraps, but this didn’t stop us to see what’s going on, especially on the front end. As we can see, the forthcoming truck will be refreshed with a more massive grille and more sharper headlights.
Generally speaking, it still looks the same as the previous generation, with only a handful of minor changes. The entry-level WT model will probably feature steel wheels, Black bumpers and exterior trim, Locking tailgate, and trailering equipment. At the top of the lineup, the High Country includes more luxury features like All-terrain tires, Standard 4WD, body-colored bumpers, Chrome side assist steps, Spray-in bedliner, and Power tailgate.
On the inside, the 2023 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD will look no less attractive than the half-ton Silverado 1500. In regular form, this truck offers seating for three, while the crew cab comes with seating for five and a legroom of 43.3 inches. As for equipment, all depends on the chosen trim. For example, the entry-level model comes with single-zone air conditioning, vinyl flooring, and manually operated windows. In addition, this truck as standard also includes a 7-inch color touchscreen infotainment, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, Bluetooth, AM/FM radio, and much more.
The most expensive High-Country trim is fully equipped with techs. This one comes with a front/rear parking sensors, heated/ventilated front seats, wireless charging, bed camera, spray-in bed liner, and LED lighting inside the bed. Besides, these trims, you can also choose Custom, LT, and LTZ models.
The safety of the Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD will be improved compared to its predecessor. From what we heard, the manufacturer will add blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assistance and forward-collision mitigation as standard.
2023 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD Powertrain Specs
The rumor claims the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD will be powered by a new Duramax diesel engine. So, we can expect the upcoming truck to use the new V8 that should produce 505 horsepower (377 kilowatts) and 1,085 pound-feet (1,471 Newton-meters). Thanks to that, the Silverado HD and its GMC Sierra HD stablemate will be placed on the top of the pack in terms of overall power. Generally speaking, it would be the first full-size diesel pickup truck to exceed the 500-hp mark.
The current Ford Super Duty, which is the closest rival, produces 475 hp (354 kW) from its 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8. The Ram is also in the same class, and it uses a 6.7-liter Cummins I6 producing 1,075 pound-feet (1,457 Nm) of twist.
When it comes to towing, the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD has all the power and capabilities you need to make hard work much easier. Unlike the Silverado 2500HD, the 3500 HD model comes with a dual rear wheel and fifth-wheel/gooseneck rig, kicking the class-leading capacity up to a massive 36,000 pounds.
When Can We Expect the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD?
The new Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD will reportedly debut in 2022 as the 2023 model year. Besides more robust and stronger design, the forthcoming model will also receive some upgrades inside. Chevrolet is keeping its lips sealed, but we can expect full details to emerge in the coming months.
We expect this model to start at less than $40,000 for the base model. A 4WD Silverado 3500 HD High Country powered by a diesel engine can cost $70,000 or even more.
