2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

With 46 trims to choose, no one should ever complain that the 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500HD doesn't grant you freedom of choice.  The key change comes in the new 6.6 L diesel-powered engine and 6 speed automatic transmission for 2006.  The Silverado 2500HD also got some exterior updates.  

Overall, the Silverado 2500HD offers 3 different powertrains: a base 6.0 L, 300 hp V8 with standard 5 speed manual transmission, an 8.1 L, 330 hp V8 with 6 speed automatic, and a 6.6 L, 360 hp V8 with 6 speed automatic.  If you add trailer capabilities, you can tow up to 16000 lbs., but the Silverado 2500HD usually has standard towing capacity of up to 12000.  

With its multitude of trims and powerful towing capacity, drivers show a lot of love for the 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500HD.  However, the mediocre build quality knock it down a notch.  Balance out the positive with the negative and you'll like the power and functionality that the Silverado 2500HD has to offer.
