In News1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineAugust 27, 2021

The all-new Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty LTZ Premium is due to commence local right-hand drive production in November and will join the GMSV portfolio.

“We’ve enjoyed a huge response to the new Chevrolet Silverado product and, with the impending arrival of the new HD, will have three very different truck propositions to satisfy a huge variety of customer needs and wants,” said GMSV director Joanne Stogiannis.

“We anticipate the key to the success of the new Silverado HD is a commitment to maintain a truck-worthy, torque-rich diesel engine, as it’s a powertrain which has widespread appeal.”


The HD is the biggest Silverado offered by GMSV and packs a 6.6L Duramax Turbodiesel V8 into the engine bay, partnered with an all-new 10-speed transmission.

“The HD is a strong and capable V8-diesel truck and complements the existing models in the lineup, but don’t let its rugged looks deceive you as it’s loaded with safety features and technology-related attributes,” said Stogiannis.

The recommended retail price of the MY21 Silverado HD LTZ Premium is $159,990 including GST.

Full technical specifications will be confirmed after final certification is completed, which is anticipated to be early in the fourth quarter of the year.
