In base form, it’s a real work truck—but upscale versions of the 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD gain some fairly luxurious features and options.
Cars.com counts out four Chevrolet Silverado HD 2008 versions: "The official trim levels are WT (work truck), LS (Crew Cab only), LT and LTZ." Kelley Blue Book details the following Chevrolet Silverado HD 2008 extras, which are included on specific trim levels: "those living in excessively cold or warm climates will benefit from remote starting on certain trim levels and those wishing to be entertained will enjoy an enhanced DVD system and CD/MP3 audio. Finally, people who worry about getting lost should opt for the available touch-screen navigation system."
Edmunds reports the work truck has air conditioning (except in the regular-cab version); OnStar; vinyl seats; and a CD player with XM Satellite Radio. Moving up to the LT gets power accessories and cruise control, cloth seats, and keyless entry, while the LTZ includes leather seating, a CD changer, different interior trim, and power front seats.
Different Silverado 2500HD models are offered with different options. Overall, Edmunds says, the options include a “navigation system, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, rear park assist, a sunroof, the Z71 Off-Road package (skid plates, off-road suspension and locking rear differential), the Safety package (power-adjustable pedals and park assist), a snow plow prep package and a cargo management system (including sliding tie-down hooks in the front and sides of the bed).”
The 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD offering world-class towing capacity as its main optional feature, though upscale additions such as navigation are available.
