You don’t need this truck. You want this truck.
Face it, the last modern diesel 90% of the buying public needed was the 1999 7.3 liter Powerstroke. With two hundred and thirty five horsepower and five hundred pound feet of torque on tap, the old cockroach Powerstroke has just enough grunt to tow everything from your fugly bass boat to a Bobcat (iTs cAllEd A sKId SteEr!!1). Now, we know what you’re thinking, but sit down fangirl, the Duramax wasn’t unleashed upon the earth until 2001 leaving the Chevy camp with its tail between its legs stranded on I-70 with another failed PMD module in their 6.5 liter wondering when GM would step its game up and drop the diesel only the military could love. Of course 1999 was twenty years ago and as they say, hindsight is 20/20 and we all know now 235 hp and 500 lb/ft was never enough to satiate the desires of the coal rolling demographic.
And with a bit of foresight, we’ve reached a cross roads of opinion as the all new 2020 Silverado bares its polarizing mug down on the masses; an inevitability brought upon the truck buying public averted only by sales numbers forcing an emergency mid cycle refresh nose job. Thankfully, there’s a solution for those contemplating abandoning Chevy’s ship for one of those pop can Fords or every GM guy’s “If I had to buy something else it would be a Cummins” Ram: the critically acclaimed, classically styled, hood scooped, L5P equipped 2017-2019 Silverado HD.
Yes, with 445 horsepower and 910 pound feet of twist, the L5P Duramax has the grunt you need to pull the single wide you live in to afford it with ease and the styling to make you look good while doing it. As an added bonus, this particular 2018 model has the highly sought after Midnight Z/71 package ensuring you’ll be snapping necks whether its at the trailer park or the country club as you roll by black on black with your slicked up tires moister than an oyster.
Hood scoops and big numbers are the name of the game and the 2018 Silverado HD has it all in spades. But don’t worry Ram man or Ford fellow, when in doubt, one liner out: eight in a V, this chevy guy sits to pee; six in a row, you’re ready to tow. Ford guy, well at least you can’t rust, right?
Face it. This is the truck you want. This is the truck you’ll feel like you’ve made it while driving. This is a truck that will go down as the classic you’ll look back on and wish you hadn’t sold in the coming age of over styled tonkas only the 10 year old in you would want. And what better time to take the reigns of a 2018 than now, right as the aftermarket has cracked the L5P PCM enabling you to unleash the full might of an L5P with a tune of your choice? Not to mention you’ll be able to remove the silly def tank hanging off the passenger side frame rail.
You can have this 100% stock one owner 13k mile 2018 Silverado 2500 HD LTZ Duramax for $58,000. OBO. This truck is being sold on consignment by American Renegade.
