When you want a vehicle that works and plays hard, the 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4WD delivers. This model drives more like a car than others in its class and makes pulling a boat or a trailer for weekend activities easy for the owner. This is a full-size pickup truck that can seat three people in the standard cab comfortably, while the extended cab, like that in the Toyota Tundra, can accommodate up to six.
The Silverado HD’s independent front suspension means easier steering and a more comfortable ride for all occupants of the vehicle. It is powered by a 6.0 L V8 engine, which at 353 hp is the most powerful in its class. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard on this model, and buyers will appreciate the fact that OnStar comes as part of the package.
When you take a look at the Chevy Silverado from the outside, there is no question what make this is; the chrome crossbar and the logo are dead giveaways. This model comes with a cargo management system that includes aluminum rails.
Silverado 2500HD buyers have many options when it comes to the vehicle’s interior. Rather than choosing the finish they want, they can select the dashboard style they find most appealing. Keep it clean and simple by going basic or get a similar level of luxury as a Suburban or a Tahoe by adding a ton of features, like heated seats or a moon roof. The choice is yours.
The 2008 version offers buyers only minor upgrades to consumers. The interior instrumentation panel is brighter than the 2007 version, and the first three months of the XM radio subscription are included in the price. If you choose a Regular Cab, you can choose a power front bench seat.
If you choose the LS package for your 2008 Silverado, power door locks, an AM/FM stereo with CD player, and a remote keyless entry system are all included. In addition, your vehicle will be outfitted with 16 inch chrome wheels. For city driving, the Silverado gets approximately 15 mpg; on the highway, you can expect to get 20 mpg.
Airbags on the driver and passenger side of the vehicle are standard, and an optional parking aid is available. ABS brakes are also standard for this model.
The 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4WD has an MSRP of $27,520 for the Regular Cab. At the top end of the scale is the LTZ Crew Cab Long Bed at $40,680. This model has so many options available, you will be able to “build” the one that suits your needs the best. No matter what you add to the mix, you are getting a comfortable ride that is rugged enough to haul a payload of up to 10,400 lbs.
