Chevrolet has been beating the diesel drums for this 2015 Chevy Silverado, and that is for a reason, US Customers are buying less and less trucks for the sake of saving on Gas bills, smaller engines, toyotas and Isuzus have taken the gas out of Ford and Chevy from America. They all come with diesels and are efficient, cost and run on less. This is a smart move to push on diesel and make available best of tech for diesel options. For towing, the most powerful Torque can be found on the diesel model with allison transmission, and the Cast-iron block Duramax diesel engine that handles a 16.0:1 compression ratio and the 30,000-psi common rail direct injection, comes with automatic features to adjust to load, gradient and weather conditions. This leads to optimum performance in any condition. So if you want to save money, and can live with a Diesel, go for it! Let’s now take a look at the interiors
