    The 2016 Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD will get a few thoughtful updates.


Digital Assist Steering
A new feature in 2016 is Digital Steering Assist. The idea is Silverado can and will automatically adjust for road crown while towing or empty. The feature is available on double cab and crew cab models but will not be available on WT or regular cab.

Midnight Edition

The Midnight Edition jumps up to LT trimmed HD pickups in 2016, although not many details have been released yet. Only these photos, taken at the State Fair of Texas gives us a hint of what's on tap. Chevy will also offer Silverado Custom for WT models, Custom Sport on LT and LTZ models and a Z71 Off Road package on 4WD LT and LTZ trim.

Updated MyLink
