Chevy Silverado 2500 Trims & Packages

When choosing a Chevy Silverado 2500 pickup truck, there will be plenty of new and used inventory out there. For the lineup, you can expect around nine models available for newer releases, all offering something unique to drivers. As of this year, the Chevy Silverado boasts a standard 6.6-liter V8 engine (available diesel) and a starting price of under $45,000.

Of course, pre-owned Chevy Silverado 2500s will retail for less and may have different specs depending on the model year. This post can serve as an ultimate guide on the 2500 nameplate, with 2022/2023 being our reference years.


The Chevy Silverado 2500 is a high-power pickup truck boasting a standard ICE or diesel engine that has continued to evolve over the last few years. With 2024 models, you will see a few exterior changes to the design, but the engine and performance will remain the same as the prior year.

Specifically, the upgrades include:

  • A 13.4-inch infotainment touchscreen.
  • A center-console wireless phone charger.
  • Enhanced safety assists.
  • New color options like Nightshift Blue.

For the 2022/2023 Chevy Silverado 2500, the base 6.6-liter V8 engine produces 401 horsepower and tows up to 14,500 pounds. This sets the nameplate apart from many heavy-duty and medium-duty trucks in its class, and Chevrolet continues to be a fan favorite.

Chevy Silverado 2500 Trims

Diving into the Chevy Silverado 2500 trims, you have quite a few to choose from. As we said above, we will use 2022/2023 as our reference year for this vehicle, as there aren't many new changes for 2024. For 2023, we see five unique models: Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country. We will take some time to explain what each truck offers below so you can see what best fits your lifestyle and needs.

Work Truck

Starting with the entry-level trim of the Chevy Silverado 2500, we have the Work Truck model. This will be the starting point in the lineup, offering drivers a standard gas-powered 6.6-liter V-8 that makes 401 horsepower and 464 pound-feet of torque and a six-speed automatic transmission. Moreover, you see these specs:

  • 6.6-liter V8 Gas engine
  • Durabed
  • Real-wheel-drive
  • StabiliTrak, an electronic stability control system with traction control
  • 6-speed, heavy-duty, electronically controlled automatic transmission
  • 17-inch LT245/75R17E all-season, silver painted wheels and blackwall tires
  • Locking tailgate without EZ Lift
  • Trailering, Suspension, and Teen Driver Packages
  • 3.5-inch diagonal monochromatic Driver Information Center
  • 40/20/40 split-bench front seat with covered armrest storage
  • Bluetooth®
  • Rear Vision Camera & Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Again, this is a great starting model for people wanting to get into the 2500 series. When properly equipped, your towing figures for the Silverado 2500 are up to 18,510 pounds and a payload capacity of ~3,614 to 3,900 pounds. Overall, it's a beast on or off the road.


Moving up a trim level for the Chevy Silverado 2500, the Custom is your next model to choose from. This vehicle builds on the base Work Truck, offering many similar features. However, you can expect a few upgrades, including the following:

  • Available 6.6-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel V8 engine
  • Remote Keyless Entry
  • Manual tilt steering column
  • Cruise control
  • Hitch Guidance

The Custom trim is a nice move toward the middle-to-high tier of the 2500 family and isn't usually much more than a few thousand dollars pricier than the Work Truck. Again, your engine is the same here, which, for many people, is an important thing to note. You're upgrading solely for the extra bells and whistles.


Your next trim of the Chevy Silverado 2500 is the LT pickup. With this model, you see more technology and bigger wheels. This model also builds up to the LTZ, which many 2500 drivers love, so it's a great compromise. Here's what it offers:

  • Integrated trailer brake controller
  • Tailgate with EZ Lift assist, power lock & release
  • 4.2-inch diagonal color Driver Information Center
  • Wi-Fi® hotspot capable
  • Wrapped steering wheel
  • 17-inch LT245/75R17E all-season, aluminum blackwall tires

Although it doesn't boast a different set of powertrains or engine configurations, the LT is a perfect pickup for anyone needing an easy-to-access tailgate, a more impressive driver information center, and generally larger, nicer wheels and tires. The wrapped steering wheel also makes for more comfortable long-distance travel.


Moving up the food chain of the 2500 pickup, we have the LTZ trim. Most people consider this the 'Favorite' Silverado 2500 model, as it boasts plenty of upgrades, inside and out, and is the next best choice to the premium High Country model. Here's what it offers:

  • Advanced Trailering System
  • Keyless Open & Start
  • Digital Variable Steering Assist
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • HD Rear Vision Camera
  • Heated driver and front outboard passenger seats and steering wheel
  • 18-inch LT275/70R18E all-terrain, aluminum wheels with Silver painted accents blackwall tires
  • LED reflector (high intensity) headlamps with LED turn signals
  • LED signature Daytime Running Lamps and LED fog lamps
  • Outside power-adjustable vertical trailering mirrors
  • 40/20/40 split-bench front seat with under-seat storage

Your wheels and tires get bigger in this model, and your tech and safety specs become more competitive. It's a nice splurge if you want sharper exterior lighting and design, plus a far more advanced interior cabin.

High Country

Lastly, we have the top-tier Silverado 2500 trim, the High Country. This is the creme de la creme of Chevy pickups and boasts 4WD, an advanced navigation display, safety galore, and much more. Here is what you can expect:

  • 4WD
  • Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Premium System with Navigation and 8-inch diagonal HD color touchscreen
  • HD Surround Vision & Bed View Camera
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert
  • Cargo bed LED lighting
  • Power Up and Down Tailgate
  • 8-inch diagonal, digital Driver Information Center
  • Bose® Premium Sound System
  • Autotrac® 2-speed transfer case with push button controls
  • 20-inch 16-spoke polished aluminum wheels
  • 6-inch Chrome rectangular assist steps (factory installed)

Again, this is your nicest 2500 to choose from, and it is one of the best luxury trucks on the market, whether new or pre-owned.
