At the end of each work day, it's just you and your truck. And the only way to measure success is by what you got done. So whether working or playing, you need a truck that gets it done and always wants to do more. The new Silverado HD is ready for enormous undertakings. It starts with an available Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 that offers a maximum 397 horsepower and 765 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful heavy duty pickup ever made. And amazingly, it's more fuel-efficient5 with an 11 % improvement in highway fuel economy over the 2010 HD. Plus, it offers up to 680 highway miles between fill-ups. To transfer all the power to the rear axle, you're going to need one heck of a transmission. Say "hello" to our strongest one yet - the legendary Allison six-speed automatic transmission. And the foundation on which it all rests is an all new chassis - giving you an improved ride, 6,635 lbs. of payload and 21,700 lbs. of towing6 - more than Ford F-350 or Dodge. Plus, innovative trailering features like Trailer Sway Control (SRW only) and StabiliTrak help keep you on track. Silverado. The most-dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickups on the road. I'll also have my "Driving Tip of the Week".You never know where the Internet Car Czar will take this show. Call in and join the discussion.
