As promised, we at Harbin Automotive are today continuing our deep dive on our lineup of Chevy Silverado HD models. Last time, we looked closely at the 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500HD, which you can read all about here. Today, we’re going into even heavier duty, which you might not have known was even possible. Ladies and gentlemen, the 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500HD.
2016 Chevy Silverado 3500HD Release Date | Scottsboro AL
The Silverado 3500HD is the most powerful Chevrolet production vehicle ever produced, so it stands to reason that it would have some boasting to do. Two powertrains are available for the new model year: a standard, gas-powered Vortec 6.0L V8 that offers 360 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque, as well as a total 14,600-pound towing capacity; and a Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel rated for 397 hp and 765 lb-ft of torque, as well as a mind-boggling 23,200-pound towing capacity. In each instance, drivers enjoy available Digital Steering Assist power steering to make trailering more confident and enhance handling.
Terrific Towing Features
The towing power begins under the hood, but that isn’t where it ends. The 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500HD boasts a number of awesome towing features, including standard Trailer Sway Control to apply brakes when sway is detected, as well as an available Trailer Brake Controller to bring the load back into line. A Rear Vision Camera is also available to make reversing much more manageable, while an available Diesel Exhaust Brake System reduces the amount of braking needed when traveling downhill.
Outstanding Cargo Bed Versatility
The 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500HD also offers a sizeable payload capacity — over 7,000 pounds, to give you an idea — so the cargo bed of the vehicle offers a host of great features as well. An available spray-in bedliner protects and prevents damage to the bed itself, while upper and lower tie-down hooks secure up to 250 pounds apiece. Available LED bed lighting enhances visibility, while the class-exclusive CornerStep rear bumper makes entering and exiting the bed easier than ever.

Fantastic Tech Features
The 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500HD has been billed as a “mobile office,” and it is definitely up to the task in that regard.

Meanwhile, the updated Chevy MyLink interface allows users to easily access turn-by-turn navigation and streaming music as well.
