2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD High Country

Comfort is important. No driver wants to sit on a seat trimmed with barbed wire or ride in a cabin that’s nosier than a tractor’s engine compartment. Refinement matters, even in heavy-duty work trucks.

This is why Chevrolet is introducing High Country versions of its 2500HD and 3500HD pickups. These vehicles will coddle passengers in copious comfort just like riders in high-end versions of the light-duty ‘Rado are.

Outside, High Country models are equipped with six-inch tubular, chrome-plated running boards as well as a variety of special badges. As for wheels, 2500 models feature a unique 20-inch design, but 3500 versions with single rears only have 18-inch chrome rims. Dualie models make do with forged and polished 17s.

Moving to the cabin, it’s dripping with sumptuous saddle-brown leather; front-passengers are treated to heated and cooled bucket seats. Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system is also included, as is a Bose premium sound as well as front and rear park assist.

A sunroof, navigation system and rear-seat entertainment suite including a Blu-Ray player are optional. A heated steering wheel, power-adjustable pedals and a special driver-alert package are available at extra cost as well.

But all of this luxury doesn’t affect the ability of these trucks to work. A 6.0-liter gasoline V8 delivers 360 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. The optional 6.6-liter Duramax diesel puts out 397 ponies and a whopping 765 units of twist. When properly equipped the Silverado 3500HD can tow up to 22,900 pounds.

    Trucks are beautiful, but priced out of my range. Only paid 35,000 for my house in 70 now its worth 400,000. My 2003 truck was 46,000 now its worth 12,000 not a good investment. And its a cream puff with 52,000 miles on it.

    Like USN, these trucks have so many goodies on them that they became pricey. My ’06 Duramax has plenty on it, and with 84 K, just really getting broken in. If I trade again, I want a model that has had the kinks worked out of it, and not the first model of a new body style or a brand new feature that the truck company did not think was important to road test first.

    Your right and these trucks are to a point that they can’t be fixed by you dealer only and their not cheap or even reasonable. I had a head on last thanksgiving and they wanted to total it, and offered me 14,000 so I looked into up grading but when I saw the prices of new 65,000 for what I had, I looked into used but they were 45,000 for ones with more miles than I had on mine. So I fought with insurance co sent them a copy of order sheet from factory with all options plus all the extras I had on it and they revalued it to 20,000 and they decided to repair it, the frame was bent and was replaced with a new one everything was transferred to new frame had bed and body under coated when it was off. took 4 months but everything seems to be ok nothing fell off and looks like new. total repair price was 18,100 . I’m sure the insurance co of the guy that hit me wasn’t happy, but I had to try something 14,000 buys you a truck with hand crank windows and not a crewcab GMC duramax .
