The new vehicle is Chevrolet’s first premium heavy-duty pickup, and combines the refinement and convenience of the Silverado 1500 High Country with the rugged capability of the new Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD pickups. According to the manufacturer, its quiet, well-appointed interior and advanced technologies bring extra confidence to the most challenging towing situations and tough jobs.
The new High Country, which will be available starting this summer, comes in 2500HD and 3500HD crew cab models in both two- and four-wheel-drive. Besides, like other Silverado HDs, this model will offer a bi-fuel version of the 6.0L V-8 that can seamlessly switch from gasoline to Compressed Natural Gas.
“With CNG capability to be offered on all Silverado HD cab configurations, customers have a wider range of choices when it comes to selecting the alternatively fueled truck that matches their needs,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, General Motors Fleet and Commercial. “And for companies and municipalities that maintain multiple trucks in their fleet, the fuel cost savings of CNG can really add up in a year.”
Inside, Silverado High Country HD features an exclusive saddle brown interior. Heated and cooled perforated premium leather front bucket seats with High Country logos on the headrests are standard, along with Chevrolet MyLink connectivity with an 8-inch touch screen, Bose premium audio and front and rear park assist. Options include a sunroof, navigation system and a rear-seat entertainment system with a BluRay/DVD player, as well as a High Country Premium Package that includes heated steering wheel, driver alert package and power adjustable pedals.
