Chevrolet pickups will invade Australia via Holden Special Vehicles, which will convert the trucks from left- to right-hand drive. HSV announced prices for the Silverado HD will start at $114,990 AUD, or roughly $88,000 USD.
The figure nets a 2500HD Work Truck model with a backup camera, a 7-inch infotainment screen, 18-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, power features and more. The 2500HD LTZ model gains extra goodies such as an 8-inch infotainment screen, Bose audio system, leather-appointed seats with heat and cooling functions, and remote start. The LTZ model will start at $134,990, or $104,000 USD.
HSV said it expects the most popular models will be the LTZ Midnight Edition, which adds plenty of black accents and accessories, and the Custom Sport Edition. The latter will only be available in Summit White, 20-inch polished alloy wheels, white bumpers, a white grille and a spray-on bedliner. Both the LTZ Midnight Edition and the Custom Sport Edition will set buyers back $139,990, or $108,000 USD.
Finally, the 3500HD LTZ tops the Silverado hierarchy for Australia. It gains all of the 2500HD LTZ’s niceties, but obviously comes in a dually configuration. All Silverado HDs will feature the 6.6-liter L5P Duramax turbodiesel V8 engine good for 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. An Allison six-speed automatic handles shifting duties.
Silverado 2500HD production will begin in April, while HSV will begin building 3500HD models in June.
