2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab Exterior

6.0/10

The all-new Silverado has an appealing exterior design. The Silverado looks the best in chrome design. The accessories complete the design. The massive wheels enhance the road presence of the truck. There are different size options for wheels to choose from. The massive grille and front fascia remind us how big the Silverado is. The hood goes all the way behind to the huge windshield. The bumpers are big enough too.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

The heightened placement of the LED headlamps provides a proper view in the dark. The Crew cab body design blends in with the cargo bed on that long wheelbase like a pro. You have gas-powered shocks to absorb the bumps and protect you from huge bumps on the terrain. A 10-inch ground clearance eases the struggle of wading through off roads and water, thanks to the 4 wheel drive system.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab Competition

8.2/10

Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD vs Ford F-250: 

2021 Ford F-250 Crew cab

Ford is considered the most practical and rugged truck maker in America. The Ford F series trucks are good in terms of performance and heavy hauling. In terms of build quality, they lack if we compare them with Chevrolet Silverado. Also, the capabilities are much better on the Silverado at a slightly higher price. The premium interior of the Silverado is worth the hassle.

Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD vs RAM 2500:

RAM makes the most appealing and powerful trucks in the segment. The RAM 2500 is a tough contender for the Silverado. But somehow Chevrolet has made the Silverado much capable and powerful. Also, there's a better fuel economy on the Silverado. The road presence of the Silverado 2500 outshines the RAM 2500. There's a small difference in the price but that difference is all that matters as Silverado is a better value for the money.

Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD vs GMC Sierra 2500

2021 RAM 2500 Crew Cab

The GMC Sierra is identical to the Chevrolet Silverado. There are similar features of comfort and convenience. Also, there are almost the same capabilities on offer. The GMC Sierra is a bit premium in terms of interior and comfort as GMC trucks are the high-end variants of Chevrolet trucks. The pricing is obviously higher for the GMC Sierra. Choosing either of the trucks isn't a bad deal after all. But Chevrolet has a better record of service and maintenance and that too at a lesser price.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab Final Verdict

8.5/10

Chevrolet has tried everything to make the Silverado the best-in-class pickup. With powerful engine options that comprise gasoline, diesel, and CNG, the Silverado is a great choice. The competitive pricing that sits between its rivals allows Chevrolet to offer maximum comfort and premium features with the Silverado. The massive pick up is good with fuel economy even after delivering immense power to the wheels. The rigid body design and high strength steel prove that the all-new Silverado is stronger than ever.

The entertainment isn't compromised as the infotainment and music system is provided to you with optional features. There's a 4 wheel drive system with 10.2-inch ground clearance to run over any obstacle. To keep you safe, there's plenty of safety features both as standard and optional. The storage space is literally unlimited as there's storage inside the cabin, storage boxes on the bedside, and a massive cargo bed for your cargo. So, choosing anything over the Silverado 2500HD crew cab isn't a good idea.
