2018 Chevrolet Silverado HD Duramax Diesel Review
we’re here in coal Valley at the john deere training facility where we’ve had the opportunity to drive 2018 Silverado HDS. both the 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks with the all-new Duramax diesel and upgraded Allison transmission now this is our first chance due to some very tight scheduling we’ve had this year to spend quite a bit of time both in empty and loaded pickup trucks.
So we’ve had a chance to figure out what we like and what we don’t like about these new vehicles here’s three likes and three dislikes for the 2018 Silverado HD the first like the new power from this Duramax 445 horsepower 910 foot-pounds of torque a brand new gigantic variable vane turbo gives you crushing power off the line which is absolutely.
Wonderful first dislike de f tanks still located under the hood and the tank itself is all the way underneath here relatively exposed second thing we like when you order the gooseneck towing package you get this very cool storage box second thing.
We don’t like not enough information in the data screen the de f exhaust fluid level is just a okay or not okay and the tire pressure monitoring system only gives you tire pressures for single rear wheel.
You don’t get any tire pressures on doing our last like this new dedicated exhaust brake it’s beautifully integrated into the tow haul mode into the cruise control and the grade braking makes this exceptionally confident when pulling and trying to slow down a heavy load our final dislike this is something of a nitpick.
We like the size of the towing mirrors and we like the fact that they can extend electronically but you still have to get out of the truck and extend them manually when you’re towing from behind the wheel we can’t say that this new Duramax diesel changes the personality of this vehicle after all this is the same chassis and interior.
That it has before but the big power numbers 445 horsepower 910 pound-feet of torque definitely makes this a huge improvement over the vehicle it’s replacing and it’s a big option package for a lot of people who have to do any kind of payload carrying or heavy trailer towing this would be the vehicle to get it’s very comfortable and easy to drive and probably the most confident one-ton pickup truck in the segment you want to know more about this vehicle go to pickup trucks calm you.
