Pickup trucks are a huge part of American culture. Almost every working-class home in America has a pickup truck. However, this is not the same case in India. In India, we have smaller roads and lower incomes compared to America, so we use smaller, more affordable vehicles in the country. This makes normal American pickup trucks a rarity in India. They become very expensive to import and run in the country. But recently, a video of one such imported pickup truck, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LTZ, has been shared online. The good news is that it is for sale as well.
The video of the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD has been shared on YouTube by CS 12 Vlogs on their channel. The video shows a ton of supercars from the streets of Mumbai, and after a while, the video shows the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD parked. The American pickup truck was parked between a Ford Endeavour and an MG Hector. This gives a reference to how huge the Chevy Silverado is when compared to SUVs, which we consider big in India. The video shows the Silverado 2500 from all angles. It can be noted that it has been adorned with a ton of Chevrolet stickers all around.
It can also be noted that this pickup truck is not visiting India via CARNET. It is a permanent import, and it gets an Indian license plate. Upon further investigation, it has been found that this exact vehicle is on sale in the country and can be purchased for a hefty price tag of Rs 1.75 crore. Yes, you heard that right. The listing has been shared online, and in the listing, pictures of the exterior, interior, and other details of the car have been shared.
Coming to the details of the listing of this Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD pickup truck. According to the listing of the truck, it is a 2022 model and has done about 2,223 km. It is a single-owner vehicle, and the listing mentions that it is a fresh import. Apart from this, from the pictures, it can be noted that it is the LTZ variant of the truck. The Silverado comes available in various cab and truck bed sizes, but the one for sale is the crew cab variant. Another detail that can be noted is that it is an extended bed vehicle.
As for the drivetrain side of things, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 came with two engine options. The first one was a 6.6-liter petrol V8 engine which produced around 401 bhp and 629 Nm of torque. The truck also came with the popular 6.6-liter diesel Duramax Turbo V8 engine as well. This truck is the one with the Duramax engine. This massive engine is capable of producing a maximum of 445 bhp and a maximum torque of 1234 Nm.
