2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD

What Changes to Expect for 2017

Silverado 3500HDThe latest rumors tell us that there are a number of changes in store for the 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500HD when it arrives in Palmetto and Memphis. Among them are upgrades to the current platform in order to strengthen the truck and increase durability. Changes to the current powertrains are also expected, including rumors of a more powerful, fuel-efficient Duramax Diesel engine. Chevy has also said they will be doing away with the current 6-speed automatic transmission and, instead, equipping the 3500 with the 8-speed automatic transmission on all of its gasoline engines.

New changes to the exterior styling have also been spied in the test models, with revisions made to the front grille and the addition of LED daytime running lights, as well as improved aerodynamics. Changes to current options packages are also said to be in the works, although details on those are scarce.

What Will Carry Over from 2016?

The bulk of the 3500HD’s popular features will carry forward into 2017, with Chevy making no announcement regarding plans to change convenient features like the forward hinged doors available on the Double Cab, or the exclusive CornerStep rear bumper that allows easier access to the rear cargo area. Optional safety features like the Forward Collision Warning system, Lane Departure Warning system, rear vision camera system, 6-airbag system, or the standard 4-wheel ABS and StabiliTrak systems will remain in place.
