There are trucks, and there are trucks… much in the same way that there are Chevy Silverados… and there are Chevy Silverado 3500 HDs. What’s the HD stand for? Heavy. Duty. If you’re in the market for a truck that is an absolute powerhouse performer with a penchant for fine exterior style and classy and upscale interior amenities, you’ll want to consider purchasing the new 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD in Cincinnati, OH. With several new and high-end interior features available and the addition of three new bold exterior paint choices, the 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD is a well-rounded choice for drivers who need peak power, tremendous towing capacity and a ride that offers comfort and convenience, all without sacrificing on safety.
All of the cool exterior paint choices and all of the neat interior amenities in the world can’t make up for a sedan, SUV or truck that is lacking when it comes to safety. However, the 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD doesn’t compromise style and luxury for safety; rather, it offers drivers the peace of mind that only comes with advanced available safety features such as those found in the Driver Alert package: forward collision warning, parking sensors, and lane departure warning. There’s also the super-cool Safety Alert Seat, which will start vibrating the driver’s seat if the car’s technology sense that a crash is imminent.
In addition the advanced safety technology, there are also standard critical components such as front and right front-passengers airbags, head curtain side-impact airbags and a StabiliTrak stability control system, which includes trailer sway control, hill start assist and technology to mitigate the potential for rollovers.
If you are in the market for a new 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD and are hoping to review the trucks official safety ratings, you’ll unfortunately have to hold out for a bit a longer, as the National Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety have yet to put the 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD through their rigorous testing procedures. However, given that the 2018 Chevy Silverado boasts a five-star overall crash test score from the NHTSA and the top rating of Good from the IIHS, it’s reasonable to assume that when and if the NHTSA and IIHS test the 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD, the scores will reflect a similar level of safety.
If you thought that you’d be able to leave the decision making at the driver’s side door of your new 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD, you are very mistaken. It’s hard to believe, but the interior of the truck is equally, if not more so, customizable. For starters, there is a multitude of trims and package options including the Snow Plow Prep Package, which includes a forward lamp wiring harness, underbody shields, heavy-duty front-springs, a roof emergency light, a backup power feed and a 220-amp alternator. The Snow Plow Prep package is ideal for anyone looking to put their truck to great use making extra cash in a snowy climate. Along the same lines, drivers who are faced with harrowing winter conditions may also want to check out the Alaskan Edition package, which includes everything in the Snow Plow Prep package, plus, trailering mirrors, a spray-in bed liner, amber roof marker lights and 18-inch black wheels with all-terrain tires. Unique graphics and a rubberized floor also lend themselves to the feel of a truck that is ready for any inclimate weather that Mother Nature may throw its way.
Of course, not everyone needs to worry about contending with snow and ice. There are plenty of fantastic amenities to be found across the 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD trim types that lend themselves to a luxurious ride, even in the most ideal weather conditions. For example, drivers who choose to drive the 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD in High Country trim will be thrilled with their leather bucket seats, Bose sound system, heated seats and aesthetically attractive features such as color-keyed carpeted floor mats and brushed metal sill plates.
However, there are countless features to be found in the 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD lineup.

You’re sure to find the feature that you’re looking for when you start to shop the new 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD family of trucks.
What really sets the truck class apart from all the other sedans and SUVs on the road is the incredible amount of customization that goes into each truck – and we aren’t just talking about special interior packages and add-ons. When you buy a 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD, you’ll have your choice between three model types: regular, double cab and crew cab. Choose the regular or crew cab if an 8’ foot box will suit your needs, choose a double cab if you’ll be all set with a slightly more compact 6’6 box. Don’t forget that once you choose your cab style, you’ll want to make sure that you have all of the features you need to make the most out of your cargo bed – so neglect to explore options like the spray-on bed liner and variety of cargo tie-downs and cargo containers that are available for your 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD.
Of course, choosing your bed length and cab style is just the start of the decisions you’ll have to make when you decide to purchase a new 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500HD. After all, you want your truck to stand out from the crowd, so you’ll want to choose an exterior paint color that boldly compliments your style and taste. Chevy offers the 2018 Silverado 3500HD in a selection of exterior paint colors, including Black, Silver Ice Metallic, Red Hot, Graphite Metallic, Deep Ocean Blue Metallic and Summit White. Additionally, 2018 Silverado 3500HDs can also be found in three new colors: Cajun Red Tintcoat, Havana Metallic, and Iridescent Pearl Tricoat. No matter if you’re looking to make a subtle statement or if you want your truck to announce your arrival, there’s an exterior paint choice perfect for your new Chevy.
When you’re shopping for a heavy duty truck, you also want to be sure that you’re getting some heavy-duty power out of your engine. The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado does not disappoint here – in fact, shoppers have a choice of two impressive engine choices. The standard engine is a 6.0-liter V8, which gets a robust 360 horsepower and 380-pound-feet of torque, while the available DuraMax 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8 leads the class with its 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. Drivers who want to maximize their towing capacity will want to opt for the 6.6-liter turbodiesel engine as it can tow a staggering 23,300 pounds as opposed to the 14,600 pounds offered by the Vortec 6.0.
