What's New For 2015?

The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD Work Truck is fully redesigned for the latest model year, just like all Silverado HD and Sierra HD models. The Silverado HD Work Truck boasts new styling, a new interior and even a few welcome additions to its bare-bones equipment list.

What We Like

Highly practical and capable; impressive towing and hauling capacities; improved interior

What We Don't

Very few standard features; can get pricey with options

Overview

The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD is a full-size, heavy-duty truck for shoppers who need more capabilities than they can get from a standard light-duty Silverado 1500. Although we covered the Silverado HD in a separate review, we've also created this overview for commercial truck shoppers who may be specifically interested in the more basic Silverado HD Work Truck.

If that sounds like you, then here's what you need to know about the Silverado HD Work Truck. For one, the Work Truck -- also called the "WT" -- is the most basic trim level in the Silverado's lineup, which also includes midlevel LT and upscale LTZ versions. It's designed primarily for shoppers interested in a simple truck that can handle just about anything at a job site with few frills and needless luxuries.

What "needless luxuries" is it missing? Well, just about all of them. Specifically, the HD Work Truck comes standard with only steel wheels, air conditioning, a rubber floor covering, vinyl or cloth seats, cruise control, power locks, a tilt steering wheel and -- new for 2015 -- a stereo with USB and iPod integration. You'll have to pay extra for keyless entry, power windows, interior carpeting or a CD player.

So why would you bother with the basic Work Truck model? Because by doing away with the truck's amenities, Chevrolet has created a reasonably priced truck -- it starts around $34,500 with shipping -- with all the capabilities you'd expect from a heavy-duty model. That makes it perfect for businesses, construction crews and other shoppers who may need big capabilities without many features and options.

Speaking of capabilities, the Silverado HD WT offers two varieties, a 2500 model and a tough-as-nails 3500 version, and two engines, a 6.0-liter V8 with 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque, and a 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8 with 397 hp and 765 lb-ft. Payload capacity reaches around 3,500 pounds with either engine, while towing capacity tops out at 14,500 pounds with the gas-powered V8 and nearly 18,000 pounds with the turbodiesel.

Although it's far from the most luxurious truck on the market, the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD Work Truck is certainly one of the most capable.
