Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD named Canadian Truck King for 2013
The Canadian Truck King challenge takes place each year. It is a head-to-head competition among six pickup truck manufacturers that involves driving the trucks back to back over a two day period. A group of automotive journalists tested the trucks under certain criteria to evaluate the trucks’ performance, inside and out. Trucks were tested on and off road, they were loaded and unloaded, they towed trailers, and they were tested on evaluations of ride and handling, among other tests.
After 2,600 km of testing, the 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD was crowned Canadian Truck King for 2013. It beat the Ford 350 and Ram 3500 to take first place. “The heavy-duty truck segment is one of the most competitive in Canada and it’s an honour to have the Silverado HD officially crowned the Canadian Truck King for 2013,” said Sharon Sikorski, GM Canada marketing manager for trucks.
The 2013 Silverado 3500 HD is powered by the Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel engine, and a 1000 six speed automatic transmission powertrain combination. This powers the truck with 397 horsepower at 3,000 rpm, and 765 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,600 rpm. It also features a high pressure fuel system for greater fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, and the list goes on. What can be said is that this truly is a powerful truck.
