Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LTZ

To get through the most demanding jobs.

You don’t get to be the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickups on the road by tampering with what works. You build on proven success. You make your best even better.

Built heavy-duty strong to help get you through the most demanding jobs, the Silverado HD offers the proven power of our Duramax turbo-diesel V8 mated to the legendary Allison transmission - produced by the makers of the military tank transmissions.
With new exterior and interior designs, plus advanced safety features including the available Safety Alert Driver Seat, the Silverado 2500HD moves the strong tradition of Chevy trucks decisively forward.
Have something to tow? With advanced technology like Trailer Sway Control, Silverado HD is a tow vehicle that combines brute strength with engineering refinement.






If you have heavy-duty demands, you need heavy-duty strength you can count on. How’s this for proven power: There are over 1 million Duramax diesels with Allison transmissions on the road today with over 100 billion miles of experience. Whether it’s towing heavy equipment or hauling massive loads, Silverado HD with the available Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 has been getting it done year after year. In fact, with its 1037 nm of torque, Silverado 3500HD with the Duramax turbo-diesel engine offers you best-in-class maximum available conventional towing capacity. Power you can trust; that’s Silverado HD.



To accelerate when trailering or hauling heavy loads, Tow/Haul mode raises transmission upshift points. It also raises downshift points using engine compression to help slow your Silverado HD instead of merely braking.



Silverado HD’s new available 10.5 cm diagonal colour Driver Information Centre (DIC) lets you choose from a menu of display themes to select what information you see and how you see it.



The available Z71 Off-Road Package features suspension upgrades designed for rugged off-road terrain, including Rancho® twin-tube shocks, an Underbody Skid Plate Package, all-terrain Tyres and Hill Descent Control. Inside and out, the Z71 has rugged looks, with a unique Z71 gauge cluster, including a unique Off-Road screen in the Driver Information Centre, and grille. Custom Z71 graphics on the instrument cluster and pickup box, as well as brushed-aluminium sill plates and special interior accents, make this truck not only tough but stylish.

Performax International offers an industry exclusive three year/100,000km factory backed new car warranty with 24 hour Road Side Assist. This is backed 100% by our factory; it is not an after-market new car warranty or mechanical warranty as favoured by most companies.

A Performax Warranty is all about looking after the customer, not looking for reasons to decline a claim. The customer doesn’t call an office in a major city and talk to an operator that knows nothing about the vehicle, and only thinks of them as a number; they call their Performax Dealer or Head Office and deal direct with an employee that usually knows what they are talking about.


Performax International operates the only original equipment manufacturer (OEM) style dealership network in Australia, with dealers throughout the country stocking and servicing our vehicles. Customers often question the ability to get help when travelling in remote areas; it’s no different to any other modern vehicle.

Basic repairs can be done anywhere by any competent mechanic, and Performax is happy to offer them assistance over the phone. Most common parts are carried in Australia and can be despatched same day, just like a Toyota. And just like a Toyota if it’s not a common replacement part it gets flown in from overseas usually within seven to 10 days.


Performax International carries an extensive range or spare parts, genuine and aftermarket accessories. Customers have the ability to customise their vehicles to suit the application, whether it be outback touring, heavy duty towing, or a show pony we can accommodate.


Brought your own vehicle in to Australia for us to convert it? Your conversion has its own 12 month / 20,000km warranty.

For more information about the Performax International warranty, please call 1800 737 367.

While all efforts are made to ensure Vehicle specifications and features are correct at the time of publication, it is the consumers responsibility to verify these before making a purchasing decision. Performax International cannot be held responsible for changes in specifications or changes made to meet ADR’s.
