Although privately left-to-right converted examples have been on offer for a while, the truly gigantic Chevy Silverado will be officially charging into select Holden and HSV dealerships across the country next year.
These genuinely massive trucks are going to wear Chevrolet badges, and will be offered in two sizes; the Silverado 2500HD, which will arrive in April, and the humungous 3500HD, which will touch down in June. With no factory right-hand drive production, they'll be converted in HSV's factory in Clayton, Victoria.
A big truck needs a big engine, and the Silverado doesn't disappoint. Think a 6.6-litre turbo-diesel V8 pumping out 332kW and an astonishing 1234Nm (yep, you read that right). It partners with a heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission sending power to all four wheels. And should you need to tow a small unit block, the Silverado can handle that, too, with a maximum tow figure of around 6000kg.
While pricing on these two big beasties is yet to be revealed, they're unlikely to be cheap. We'd expect a starting point north of $100k.
