DETROIT When you spend long days on the worksite or long nights

With its quiet, well-appointed interior and advanced technologies that
bring extra confidence to the most challenging towing situations, the
2015 Silverado High Country HD has what it takes to make the tough
Silverado High Country HD, Chevrolet's first premium heavy-duty

High Country with the rugged capability of the new Silverado 2500HD
and 3500HD pickups.

rear bumper. All models include 6-inch tubular chrome assist steps,
High Country badges on the doors and tailgate and High Country logos
on the door sill plates.
Silverado 2500HD High Country models also feature a unique 20-inch

Inside, Silverado High Country HD features an exclusive saddle brown

New trailering mirrors available
Also available on the Silverado HD High Country are Chevrolet's new
up-level trailer tow mirrors. The chrome-capped mirrors manually
extend for wider trailers and feature power adjust with memory and
power fold. They include heat and turn signals in the glass. They also
incorporate auxiliary clearance lamps and auxiliary cargo lamps to
help make backing a trailer easier.
Engineered for capability, built for dependability
Under the skin, the new High Country models are 100 percent Silverado
HD, engineered to tame the toughest tasks and validated by the team
that has helped make Silverado the most dependable, longest lasting
pickups on the road.
The High Country comes in 2500HD and 3500HD crew cab models in both
two- and four-wheel-drive. The 3500HD High Country will be available
in single- or dual-rear wheel models, with maximum tow ratings of up
to 22,900 pounds for fifth wheel/gooseneck towing, and up to 19,600
pounds for conventional towing.
Like other Silverado HDs, the High Country HD will offer a choice of
- A 6.0L V-8 specifically tuned for heavy-duty trucks, rated at 360
horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.
- A bi-fuel version of the 6.0L V-8 that can seamlessly switch from
gasoline to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).
- The 6.6L Duramax turbodiesel teamed with the Allison 1000 six-speed
automatic transmission. Rated at 397 horsepower and 765 lb-ft of
torque, the Duramax V-8 features a variable-vane turbocharger that
acts as an exhaust brake, helping control speed on downgrades for more
The foundation of the 2015 Silverado HD lineup is a family of fully
boxed frames, which use large cross sections, hydroforming and
high-strength steels in key areas. The stiffness of the frames
contributes to improved handling and ride comfort while the strength
of the frames enhances payload and towing capability.
The Silverado HDs employ an independent front suspension specifically
engineered for HD pickup use. Torsion bars tailored to the weight
ratings of the trucks allow easier trim height adjustments. In the
rear, asymmetrical leaf springs balance ride-and-load carrying and
improve control of axle hop.
The new Silverado HDs are engineered to bring new levels of confidence
to tough towing through further refinement of Silverado's available
cruise control, auto grade braking, and diesel exhaust brake.
Integrating these features helps the 2015 Silverado HD maintain a set
speed up and down grades, even when towing a heavy trailer in
Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD High Country models will be available
starting this summer.
