The 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500HD pickup carries over largely unchanged. The Regular Cab and Double Cab standard bed versions have been dropped, although they are still available through the fleet program. See the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD models for sale near you
There are too many trim levels and configurations to pick a Silverado 2500HD model that stands out above the rest. Instead, we suggest choosing the pickup that best suits your needs. For example, shoppers looking to tow large trailers will want the 6.6-liter turbodiesel engine. Drivers who need to cart around the whole family will want a Crew Cab. And those who want luxury will want a high-end LTZ or High Country model. If it were us choosing a Silverado 2500HD, we'd opt for the diesel because it's just so capable, and we'd skip the base-level Work Truck model, since its sparse options might make it hard to resell.

The 2019 Silverado 2500HD comes in many different body styles, trim levels and configurations. Drivers can choose from Double Cab or Crew Cab variations, as well as regular and long beds, gas or diesel engines and 2- or 4-wheel drive.
When it comes to trim levels, the Silverado 2500HD offers four: the base-level Work Truck, the midlevel LT, the high-end LTZ and the top-of-the-line Silverado High Country.
The Work Truck ($39,095) is designed for basic job site transportation, and as such, it doesn't offer much in the way of frills. There's MyLink with a 7-in touchscreen and an auxiliary port, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a 40/20/40 vinyl front seat, a rear backup camera, chrome bumpers, 17-in painted wheels, an automatic locking rear differential, heavy-duty engine and transmission oil coolers, air conditioning, power locks, power windows and cruise control.
Next up is the LT ($44,490), which includes a much more generous list of standard equipment. There are power mirrors, for example, and tinted glass. Silverado 2500HD LT models also include alloy wheels, cloth seats, an EZ Lift and lower tailgate, MyLink with an 8-in touchscreen, OnStar and satellite radio.
Above that is the LTZ ($51,490), which is not available on Double Cab models and adds luxuries such as leather seating, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, fog lights, power-folding mirrors, larger alloy wheels, chrome trim, remote vehicle start, integrated trailer brake control, a power-sliding rear window with a defroster, and a 110-volt outlet.
Topping the range is the High Country ($57,890), which is similar to GMC's Denali trim and only comes on Crew Cab models. The High Country adds primarily appearance upgrades, including 20-in alloy wheels, body-color bumpers, chrome side steps, full leather front bucket seats, a spray-in bedliner, carpeted floor mats, special trim and a unique interior design with a center console. It also adds a navigation system, a Bose sound system, front and rear park assist and a wireless charging system.
When it comes to options, the Silverado 2500HD offers the 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel engine, power adjustable pedals, front and rear park assist, a heavy-duty trailer package and 4WD. Optional safety features include forward-collision warning and a lane-departure warning system that vibrates the driver's seat if the truck starts to drift from its lane.

2019 GMC Sierra 2500HD -- The highly similar Sierra 2500HD is worth a look, especially if you prefer the GMC's more aggressive styling. Even if you don't, check out the Sierra to see if you can get a better deal.
2019 Ram HD -- The heavy-duty Ram is all new this year, and offers impressive capabilities, especially given its self-leveling suspension and optional 6.7-liter engine that can produce up to 1,000 lb-ft of torque. The Ram can also tow more than the Chevy, but its resale values are not as good.
2019 Ford F-250 -- The F-250 was recently redesigned, offering more luxury, more high-tech features and better towing numbers. The F-250's engine choices are the equal of the Silverado 2500HD's, but its aluminum bed may not be as rugged.
