06 Silverado 2500hd 6.0
My Silverado is getting really hot while towing up hill, to the point that the "Engine Coolant Hot" light is coming on. (Which I stop and let it cool down). This has gradually gotten worse. Truck does not get hot while towing on flat terrain. Any ideas?

General Motors reported this morning that the all-new Silverado equipped with the 3.0-Liter Duramax diesel engine has earned an EPA-estimated 33 MPG Highway in 2WD configurations. Here is a quick look at the numbers we have so far:
2WD Silverado Duramax = 33 MPG Highway, 23 City
4X4 Silverado Duramax = 29 MPG Highway, 21 City
Here are a couple of quick comparisons:
2019 Ford F-150 2WD Diesel = 30 Highway, 22 City
2019 Ford F-150 4WD Diesel = 28 Highway, 22 City
2019 Ram 1500 2WD Diesel = 27 Highway, 20 City
2019 Ram 1500 4WD Diesel = 27 Highway, 19 City
**2020 Chevrolet Colorado 2WD DIesel = 30 Highway, 20 City
**2020 Chevrolet Colorado 4WD DIesel = 28 Highway, 19 City
“We designed the all-new Silverado and the all-new 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel to deliver both performance and efficiency,” said Tim Herrick, Silverado executive chief engineer. “The engine utilizes state-of-the-art technologies to optimize every drop of fuel, and takes advantage of architectural changes to make Silverado larger, lighter and more aerodynamic than before. The resulting combination offers all of the performance, refinement and capability customers want in a full-size truck, with highway fuel efficiency you would expect from a family sedan.”
The trade-off for fuel economy alone will worth calculating. In addition to the higher fuel cost compared to gasoline, for the LTZ and High Country, the 3.0L Diesel is a $2,495 option (identical to that of the 6.2L V-8). For the LT and RST, it is a $3,890 increase over a 2.7L Turbo engine. For those looking for diesel towing capability, the choice will be an easy one.
The EPA has not yet published full MPG and emissions information on the new Duramax at its site, www.fueleconomy.gov. Once data is posted we will do a more in-depth post on the comparison to some other Silverado models. First deliveries of the 2020 Silverado with the Duramax engine will be this coming fall.
