    New models

    Chevrolet will also have two brand-new models for its HD Silverado lineup. There will be an SRW crew cab with a 6.5-foot cargo box and a two-wheel-drive regular-cab short box with a Duramax diesel.

    "The two-wheel-drive Duramax regular-cab truck will probably be one of the fastest pickups that we've ever produced," Mikulec said.

    I can't find it right now but I read somewhere how much it will cost and it was minor.

    It said all truck stops will either have it at a pump or in gallon jugs in the store.

    The whole article is talking about the 3500 model.

    So in a 3500 you will be able to be CC / SB SRW

    DEF is pretty cheap and will be readly availible by the time these are on the road. Most on highway diesel engines built after Jan 1 2010 require DEF and are using SCR technology. Some are using increased EGR flow instead of SCR, and that is a mistake.

    it ranges but about 9 bucks a gallon. so fifty bucks every 5000 miles. it says that mileage, but i am not sure if it only bases it on mileage or engine hrs combined. for you guys plowin alot of accounts that may get costly.

    2011 Chevrolet Silverado Heavy-Duty Trucks At A Glance

    o Segment-best towing (20,000 lb / 9,072 kg) and payload (6,335 lb / 2,873 kg) supported by all-new frames and strong suspensions for maximum capability
    o Class-leading torque, class-leading fuel economy with up to 63-percent lower emissions and quicker acceleration with new 6.6L Duramax diesel mated to new Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission
    o B20 biodiesel capable
    o All-new exhaust brake system for greater feeling of control and reduced brake pad wear
    o Comprehensive set of confidence- and control-related features, including trailer sway control, integrated trailer brake control, hill start assist, automatic grade braking and intelligent brake assist
    o Bold and new exterior design features louvered hood, front bumper, grille and 20-inch wheels

    o Purposeful technology, including available mobile WiFi, USB connectivity, Bluetooth connectivity, XM Satellite Radio, OnStar 9.0 and navigation
    o Goes on sale this summer

    A completely redesigned independent front suspension system offers up to a 25-percent greater front axle weight rating – up to 6,000 pounds (2,721 kg) front gross axle weight rating (FGAWR) – enabling a snow plow to be used on all 4WD cab configurations with the available snow plow prep package, while also supporting improved ride and handling characteristics

    "Everything else up front is larger, too. The bolt capacities and diameters have increased from 16 mm to 18 mm. There's also a new steering box with a 16-1 turn ratio and larger front linkage to manage increased front-end loads resulting from the improved front gross axle weight rating, which has jumped from 4,800 pounds to 6,000 pounds.

    Regardless of cab, engine or driveline configuration, all Silverado HD pickups can accommodate the biggest snow plows built for HD pickups. In the old truck, the weight of the Duramax diesel and four-wheel-drive system limited the largest snow plows to regular-cab two-wheel-drive models. Only gas trucks could support the big plows. The torsion bar setup is also simpler than its predecessor. There's only one torsion bar cross member now instead of three, for easier packaging. Depending on the front GAWR, there are five different torsion bar rates . Previously, a single torsion bar was used for all models.

    The front differential is still 9.25 inches and keeps its aluminum housing, but the half-shafts, wheel bearings and lower ball joint have all been upsized. Internally, the ring and pinion gears have been strengthened."
