From the job site to the camp site, from the
farm to the city, from the mine, all the way
home, you’ll find this long-lasting, dependable
truck doing it all – every day. The new Chevy
Silverado is designed without compromise.
Imagine all the benefits of superior power
and torque, along with higher payload and
trailering, without having to compromise on
your desire for enviable style and luxurious
comfort. Sounds too good to be true, right?
Think again! The new 2012 Chevy Silverado
is all that and more. An impressive evolution
of its predecessor and miles ahead of any
competitor on the market, it’s the most
powerful, stylish and highly-evolved
heavy-duty ever made.
The numbers speak for themselves. A 296KW/1037n.m Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo Diesel Engine, Allison 6 speed transmission, up to 10,433kg max. towing capacity, up to 3273kg* payload (*3500 specific version) and a 136L tank, capable of taking you 1094km, the Silverado is a powerful beast, ready to meet even the toughest of challenges. The Highway fuel efficiency and NOx emission values are equally impressive… not to mention the fact that it’s biodiesel compatible.
And if unparalleled power and seemingly impossible efficiency isn’t enough to win you over, the Silverado also boasts one of the smoothest and most comfortable rides in its class. The chassis has a high-strength, fully-boxed steel frame, with five times torsional rigidity, while the suspension has the strongest and most robust components to increase load capacity and improve overall travel comfort and ride quality. And in the words of the manufacturer “You don’t saw logs with a steak knife. You don’t cut hay with a garden tractor. And you don’t haul precious cargo with just any truck. Silverado HD is at its best towing gooseneck and fifth-wheel trailers of varying sizes up the a best-in-class 10,433kg*” The superior exhaust break system, with intelligent brake assist, offers precision as well as increased safety and peace of mind, making the Silverado experience stronger, safer and more advanced than any other truck in its class.
Strength and power aren’t the only strings to the Silverado’s bow either. While the robust yet sleek exterior, which is practical, durable and capable of turning heads, makes no attempt at hiding the power that lies within, the interior is a stunning cocoon of luxury that is bursting with comfort and features. Complete with leather seats, leather wrapped steering wheel, woodgrain texture, plentiful leg room and dual zone climate control, the interior is a welcome contrast to the power and grunt of the engine and exterior design. All this, coupled with the blue tooth system and USB port for iPod connectivity, sets the 2012 Silverado even further ahead of the market than the previous generation and ensures that the end result is equally as impressive in form, as it is in function.
