2019 Chevy Silverado 2500
The 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 is a heavy-duty truck with serious towing and hauling capabilities than a regular 1500 light-duty truck. The Chevy Silverado 2500 remains unchanged until getting a complete redesign and overhaul for 2020. Despite this, the Silverado 2500 has a max trailer weight of 14,500 pounds, and it can tow up to 18,100 pounds with a fifth-wheel gooseneck. The standard engine is a 6.0-liter gasoline V8 motor with 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. Rear-wheel-drive is standard, while four-wheel-drive is optional across all trim levels. All 2019 Silverado 2500 models equipped with the gas V8 engine have a six-speed automatic gearbox. Optional is the 6.6-liter V8 turbo diesel engine with 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. The Silverado 2500HD is available in double-cab and crew-cab styles. Both versions have a standard 6.5-foot bed or an optional 8.2-foot long bed.
Spick and Span
The 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 is not short on cubby holes and in-cabin storage solutions. It has a massive center console, a split-open glove box, and a bevy of cupholders in the front and back. But if you need more storage space for your stuff, installing an under-seat storage box will work wonders in keeping your items organized inside the truck. Under-seat storage boxes come in many sizes, but most offer enough room to store large items. You can even add a behind-the-seat storage box to compliment your Silverado’s folding rear seats perfectly. Both systems make heavy use of polyethylene plastic, which serves as a lightweight, yet strong, inexpensive material that is easy to mold to the floor plan of the truck. The containers on the more expensive end of the spectrum include dividers that allow you to create custom compartments within the box. Non-slip surfaces are implemented on the bottom of the containers to help secure them in place.
The stock floor mats in your 2019 Chevy Silverado 2500 offer mediocre protection against heavier dirt and stains like liquid spills, thick mud, snow, and sand. It’s time to ditch those cloth floor mats for a quality set of all-weather floor liners that offer maximum coverage and protection. Floor liners provide a custom fit and ensure complete coverage to protect your truck’s carpets from ugly stains and spills. Aftermarket floor liners feature a durable thermoplastic construction with a rubberized feel, capable of lasting the life of your rig. The raised edges of the floor liners help keep dirt and liquids trapped, making them easy to handle and dump outside without spilling any back into the cabin.
Intercooler Piping Upgrade
Are you looking to unleash a couple more horsepower and torque from your diesel Silverado 2500 HD? Unbeknownst to many, you don’t need to spend big money on a performance intercooler upgrade. Instead, focus your attention on the hot-side and cold-side intercooler tubes. The stock intercooler piping is suitable for most street applications. But then again, you can realize enormous power gains, faster acceleration, better fuel economy, and more robust towing capabilities by upgrading to a set of larger-diameter intercooler charge pipes. Installing a set of aluminum intercooler pipes not only improves the airflow and facilitates faster heat transfer, but the mandrel bents help decrease turbulence while minimizing pressure loss. The result is up to 40-percent better airflow and a healthy increase in horsepower, torque, and engine efficiency, all without necessitating an engine tune. The best part? Aftermarket intercooler pipes are easy to install using basic hand tools.
