If you’re located in the Lewistown, State College, or Bellefonte area, chances are that you need a strong heavy-duty pickup truck for everything that work and life throw at you. The 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 is engineered to handle it all with a beastly torque output, great fuel economy, and a capacious cabin.

Our team at The Lake Dealerships have crafted the following review to let 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 shoppers know all they need to know about the capable heavy-duty pickup truck.

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Performance Specs

Engine                                                 Horsepower               Torque

Vortec® 6.0L V8 SFI                                    360                        380 lb-ft

Duramax® 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8                 445                       910 lb-ft

The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 offers two very strong engine options with more than capable torque output.

The Vortec® 6.0L V8 SFI comes standard on the base trim with Variable Valve Timing to optimize the engine’s blend of horsepower and torque.

While powerful, this engine option is fuel efficient as well, as it uses an E85 ethanol-mix gasoline to keep your pocket happy and reduce emissions.

The bull-strength Duramax® 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 is one of the most powerful engine options in the class of heavy-duty pickup trucks. Its 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque allow you to tow up to an impressive 18,100 pounds using the tow/haul mode and StabiliTrak® feature to keep the trailer in perfect position.

Cabin Space

The cabin of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 is capacious and affords plenty of room for you and your passengers.

The crew cab standard box option offers an impressive 42.8 inches of headroom and 45.2 inches of legroom to the front-seats, while the back-seat passengers are afforded 40.5 inches of headroom and 40.9 inches of legroom.

Interior Technology

The 2018 Chevrolet 2500 is just as technologically advanced as it is strong. The spacious cabin incorporates some advanced interior technology including:

All of these technological comforts make your driving experience more fun and lively as you can play any of your favorite songs, podcast, or other forms of entertainment through the crystal clear Bose® speaker system.


The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 offers quite a few different standard and available safety features to help keep you and your cargo safe.

The standard Rear Vision Camera allows the driver to see directly behind the vehicle from the infotainment screen to help avoid any unseen objects that may be in the way.

The available Forward-Collision Warning uses frontal radar technology to sense and help prevent frontal crashes by alerting you when you are approaching a vehicle too quickly.

Another helpful available safety feature is the Lane Departure Warning, which uses side sensors to let you know when you’re drifting out of your lane to prevent sideswiping accidents.
