A Powerful Workhorse for Your Workforce


Chevy has long been associated with powerful pickup trucks and one of the stars of their lineup is the popular Silverado 3500HD Chassis Cab. This truck works so hard you might have to put it on the payroll, and also comes with a few well integrated technology features that aren’t usually the norm for what are considered “work trucks”, making it stand out a little from its competitors.

The Silverado 3500HD Chassis Cab packs a ton of power in a couple of configurations. With the Silverado’s standard 360-hp Vortec 6.OL V8 Gas Engine you’ll get a maximum torque of 765 lbs/ft and a maximum payload of 7,287 pounds. The alternate engine option is the Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8, which will increase your power at higher RPMs and offer better fuel economy. The Diesel engine is also prepared for rough winter weather, with Duramax glowplugs, which will heat up to allow you to start your truck in three seconds or less in freezing temperatures, and an Exhaust Brake that will be helpful in regulating your downhill speed in snowy or icy conditions without wearing on your brakes.

The standard Hyrdra-Matic 6-Speed Automatic Overdrive Transmission has Tap-Up/Tap-Down driver shift control, Auto Grade Braking, and a Tow/Haul mode. If you intend to put your truck through the paces with heavier duty jobs, you might prefer the optional Allison 1000 Series 6-Speed automatic overdrive transmission that comes with the Duramax diesel option.

With the Chassis Cab, you’ll have the option of a few modern technological conveniences that make everyday life easier, including built in 4G LTE Wi-Fi and a 110V power/auxiliary outlet for easy, on the go charging all your devices. If you need more, add the optional USB port. Navigation is also covered, with the innovative navigation radio, which allows you to enter the address of your destination and announces the directions via the stereo speakers. For the very tech savvy, Chevy’s MyLink system features a 7-inch color touch-screen, which can be linked to your mobile devices and used to display information, play music, make voice command phone calls and more.

If you have any questions about the specs and features of the Silverado 3500HD, the very knowledgeable employees at David Chevrolet Buick are happy to answer them. We serve the Niagara Falls and Buffalo NY areas and look forward to hearing from you!
