The 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD allows occupants to ride in remarkable comfort, considering it's a pickup.

Cars.com says "in addition to added front-seat legroom, headroom and hip room, Chevy made the interiors seem roomier by moving the dashboards down and forward a few inches." ConsumerGuide notes a "bulky center console, with front bucket seats, limits foot space for rear-center passenger" inside the Chevy Silverado HD. Commenting on one of the higher-level Chevrolet Silverado HD 2008 trims, Kelley Blue Book notes "the 'luxury' interior of the LTZ offers a driving environment straight out of a Tahoe or Suburban."

Like other aspects of the Chevy Silverado HD, there have been some improvements in on-board storage; Cars.com reports that "storage capacity has grown thanks to a double glove compartment and even-larger center storage consoles...the optional 40/20/40-split front seat offers a lockable bin in the center seat and another in its backrest/armrest." ConsumerGuide says "ample small-items storage includes large bins and underseat cubbies front and rear, plus big door pockets and, with Pure Pickup interior, a second dashboard glovebox," while "bed-wall rails mount dividers and other add-ons to secure and organize cargo."

GM has not changed interior materials of 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD construction much this year; Cars.com reports, "Interior changes for the Chevrolet Silverado HD 2008 are minor, including brighter pointers in the gauge cluster on all models." There are some improvements, however; Edmunds points out that "where there was once an abundance of lackluster design, hard plastic and uneven panel gaps there's now richly grained upholstery, softer materials and precise fitments."

TheCarConnection.com notes that pickup trucks are not known for a quiet ride, but the 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD appears to be an exception. ConsumerGuide reports that in the Chevrolet Silverado HD 2008 "highway wind noise [is] impressively low for tall, blocky big rigs...tire thrum [is] modest except on coarsest pavement, [and] engines intrude only under full throttle."

Conclusion

The 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD is a substantial improvement over its predecessors in terms of comfort and quality.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
