When you have a big job to do, you need a brawny pickup truck, one from the 3500 class. They're sometimes known as "one-ton" pickups, though nowadays they carry a great deal more. These trucks are built for hard work, and the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD is no exception.
The Silverado 3500HD is designed for buyers who want a truck with maximum towing capability. The base engine is a 6.0-liter gasoline-fueled V8 that develops 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet. It's a good enough engine, but we do wish Chevrolet would offer its HD trucks with the more powerful 6.2-liter V8 found in the 1500. We prefer the optional 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel, which was extensively reworked just last year. The diesel engine puts out 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque, with better refinement than the previous version of the engine. The diesels also get a cool hood scoop with a built-in water separator. Both engines come with a six-speed automatic transmission, though the diesel gets a beefier unit. The 3500HD is available in both single and dual rear-wheel models, both offered with rear- or four-wheel drive, the latter with a low-range transfer case.
As big as it is, the Silverado 3500HD is relatively pleasant to drive. Thin windshield pillars make for great visibility, and the steering has a nice heft, though the slow ratio means lots of wheel-twirling when maneuvering. However, the massive nature of the 3500 makes it a bit bouncy on the highway — this should be helped when you put a full load in the bed or start towing something. Depending on configuration, the Silverado 3500HD can tow up to 23,300 pounds and haul up to 7,153 pounds in the bed (which is why the "one-ton" moniker is a misnomer). Clearly, whatever you're towing, the 3500HD is likely to handle it.
Chevrolet offers the Silverado 3500HD in a variety of models. The base model is, as we mentioned earlier, a bare-bones work truck, though there is some additional standard equipment this year such as a rearview camera and a larger infotainment screen. The LT and LTZ models are aimed at buyers who want a more upscale truck. For those who want it all, the top-of-the-line High-Country offers most of the tech and comfort equipment that you could hope for in any truck. Edmunds can help find the perfect 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD for you.
