A refreshed lineup of Chevrolet pickups are likely to last though until the latter half of this decade, which is when it’s likely to expect an all-new generation of pickup trucks are revealed. Trucks that are rumored to have aluminum body structures to help save weight, improve efficiency and increase capabilities.
In the meantime, the 2017 Chevrolet 2500 and 3500 are due for a refresh, and PickupTrucks.com has the latest spy shots. The 2017 Silverado heavy-duty variants are likely packing a reworked 6.6-liter Durmax diesel engine to pony up to Ford’s Power Stroke and Ram’s Cummins engines. As of recent, the Silverado Heavy Duty has fallen behind in regards to power output. But perhaps for not much longer.
According to the report, rumor has it that the 6.6-liter Duramax could reach outputs of 425 hp and 860 lb-ft of torque, paired with a new heavy duty eight-speed transmission. The 10-speed unit General Motors and Ford are co-developing may not be too far behind, either.
Lastly, it’s expected that the trucks will possibly debut during the 2016 Texas State Fair this coming September.
