2018 Chevy Silverado HD

Phillips Chevrolet – Frankfort & Lansing, IL

Chevrolet Trucks have now been around for a century, starting with the original 1918 One-Ton model. That 1918 truck was powered by a 2.8L four-cylinder engine with an estimated 45 lb-ft of torque. The closest contemporary to that engine in the current Chevy lineup is the 2.5L four-cylinder engine in the Chevy Colorado which provides 191 lb-ft of torque, a 480 percent improvement over the 1918 engine. In a sports car like the Corvette, torque is what gives you those quick 0-60 times. In a truck, torque means towing power, and the Chevrolet king of towing is the Silverado 3500HD one-ton truck, with the available Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel V-8 with  910 lb-ft of torque for trailering confidence even on steep grades. “Chevrolet Trucks have pulled their weight for a century,” said Dan Nicholson, vice president, Global Propulsion Systems. “Nobody does torque like Chevrolet and generations have counted on our trucks to get the job done confidently.” Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort, Lansing and Bradley has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a huge selection of trucks ready to get to work for all of your towing needs.
