When a half-ton pickup just won't do the trick, the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD and 3500 HD (Heavy Duty) are the go-to vehicles for those needing maximum towing and hauling abilities. A new Duramax diesel engine improves the Silverado HD's conventional tow ratings, although it still lags behind Ram and Ford when using a fifth-wheel setup.
My new Chevy Silverado has made me extremely happy. It rides especially smoother. The handling is very responsive. I got the fancy wheels that really makes the truck stand out. The design of the interior is well thought out. It has the power driver and passenger seats with memory positioning which comes in handy.
I love my silver stallion Silverado.
Excellent on fuel, roomy comfy. Radio options are great, color is beautiful comes with extended warranties 4x4 works amazing. Never had any issues with anything. Dependable truck great when towing a trailer whether or not the load is heavy or not. Still runs like new overall amazing Chevy truck.
It is a sleek and dependable truck, with the hauling capability that is wrapped in a beautiful package.
My truck is both sleek and tough. It has the capacity to tow heavy weights, is very dependable, and a beautiful truck. There is nothing I don't like about it, and is basically my dream truck.

Report Receipt Date:
Sep 8, 2016
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2015-2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, 3500 HD, Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Sierra 2500 HD and 3500 HD, GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL, Cadillac Escalade and Cadillac Escalade ESV vehicles and 2014-2017 Chevrolet Corvette, Silverado 1500, Trax, Caprice Police Pursuit Vehicle, GMC Sierra 1500, Buick Encore, and 2014-2016 Buick Lacrosse, Chevrolet Spark EV and SS vehicles. In the affected vehicles, certain driving conditions may cause the air bag sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) software to activate a diagnostic test. During this test, deployment of the frontal air bags and the seat belt pretensioners would not occur in the event of a crash.
A failure of the front air bags or seat belt pretensioners to deploy in the event of a crash necessitating deployment increases the risk of injury to the driver and front passenger.
GM will notify owners, and dealers will reflash the SDM software. Vehicles that have had a previous air bag deployment will have the SDM replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on October 13, 2016. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 16007.

What Is The Rating System
We’re rating cars based on Style, Performance, Comfort, Quality, Safety, Features, and

exceptional circumstances, i.e. off-road prowess, or supercar credentials.
Comfort: Points can be earned or lost based on comfort in the front
back seats, or third-row
seats (where applicable); good or bad interior storage; and good cargo capacity. Cars,
trucks with significant cargo capacity can earn an additional point.
Safety: Cars with official crash data gain points for a five-star
rating by the NHTSA, or Top
Safety Pick status by the IIHS. Cars with Top Safety Pick+ status are awarded an
those advanced safety features. An additional point is awarded for cars with exceptional
features such as parking assistance, surround-view camera systems, or autonomous-driving
Cars with official crash data lose points for a four-star overall rating by NHTSA,
ratings by the
IIHS, any three-star NHTSA ratings, no standard rearview camera, poor outward vision, or
notes by the IIHS or federal testers. Cars without crash data aren’t given a rating at

added for exceptional available features, good customization options, good infotainment

equivalent MPGe rating of more than 100 mpg earn a perfect score.

It’s not like grade school. Our ratings go from 1-10 with 5 being an average score. In

Some of our ratings are based on specific criteria. Safety ratings, for example, are
crash data from both of the major U.S. safety organizations. Green scores are calculated
estimates from the EPA.

why we arrived at the score we did.
We’ve added an “N/A” rating. For cars without official crash safety ratings or other
authorities, we’ve removed those numbers from the overall score to give readers a better
