The Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD is simply put, full of features! Autoblog has this to say: the “2011 Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty ups the ante.” And that is just the beginning of many accolades about this tremendous truck! CarandDriver.com calls the Silverado: “a serious piece of work-site hardware.” EdmundsInsideLine says this: “on top of the heavy-duty truck world.” And if that wasn’t enough, pickuptrucks.com says this about the Chevrolet Silverado: “a massive upgrade over the previous model in capability and construction.” These accolades are well deserved too! Unlike Ford or Ram, the Silverado 3500HD incorporates torsion bars that allow an owner to easily adjust the front of the vehicle back to its normal ride height; that’s even with the weight of a snow plow attached! (Every 4X4 model can easily accommodate a snow plow with the available snow plow prep package offered by Chevrolet.)
With its fully boxed frame and all new front and rear suspensions, you will see a huge increase in the gross vehicle weight ratings. This includes massive components such as 3” wide rear leaf springs and precision forged upper control arms. The Silverado’s new independent front suspension allows each of the front wheels to react independently to rough terrain, which will allow the driver to have the wheels in a vertical position that means they are firmly planted on the road or ground, keeping everyone safe and sound!
To better manage larger capacities, Chevrolet has made the steering knuckle taller and 66% heavier than before. Also, to better handle increased payloads, the rear suspension includes 20% wider leaf springs with an asymmetric design that reduces wheel hop. And to place the icing on the cake of features, this workhorse has a 6000 lb front gross axle weight rating (FGAWR).
