The 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 Diesel pickup will undoubtedly continue upon what is looking to be a long series of updates and redesigns of the entire lineup. Naturally, everyone is waiting with baited breath to see how much of the earlier promises made by the developers will actually be kept. Anyway, this is what we have for now.
Release Date if 2018 Chevrolet Silverado
The exact release date of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 is unknown at this point. The most probable date is the end of 2017, or early 2018, assuming there are no delays.
2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 Diesel Price
Despite everything, the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 is expected to stay within a certain price range, so anything over $30,000 for the base version would mean a serious deviation from its usual business goals.
Exterior of Chevy Silverado 2500
In order to keep up with the competition, the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 is going to need to make some serious changes to the exterior.
For one, the weight has to be reduced even further in order to facilitate better handling, superior aerodynamic properties and therefore improve fuel efficiency. The diesel version is to be no exception, of course.
As for other, minor features, we can expect a new front fascia complete with redesigned LED headlights, a brand new hood as well as an interesting, shiny new grille.
The aggressive-looking bumpers will also help in more ways than one, mostly by channeling the air towards the breaks where it is needed the most.
Chevy Silverado 2500 Diesel Interior
The interior of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 will no doubt feature a number of changes, even when compared to those on the outside. Of course, all of the essentials are to be updated to a new set of standards.
The selection of materials for the upholstery will undoubtedly be updated, as will the infotainment system with a brand new touchscreen.
It is going to be interesting to see how the new materials and technologies fit into the old price range and whether there are going to be some serious increases in the near future or not.
One thing is for certain – there have been no expenses spared on the updated safety features, apart from the optional ones such as park assist.
2018 Chevy Silverado Engine
It is still far too early to talk about any engine that the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 is going to feature, as this is still a concept.
The diesel version is even more difficult to predict, given the ever-stricter standards and regulations governing this area of the industry.
Having said that, we can safely assume the new Silverado is going to handle a lot better than before, thanks to its lighter build and improved aerodynamics. The engine selection is going to feature either a twin-turbo V6 or a V8 with more than 400 hp and pound-feet of torque.
The transmission is an even greater mystery, as the new one is reportedly being developed as we speak. Some are predicting a 10-speed automatic, while others talk about an 8-speed version.
