Chevrolet Alghanim Sponsors Platinum's Body Beach Challenge: The super heavyweight Chevrolet Silverado gets high points for performance and design

November 6th, 2014 - Yusuf A. Alghanim & Sons Automotive, the sole distributor of Chevrolet vehicles in Kuwait, sponsored Platinum's Body Beach Challenge that was held in Platinum Health Club in Sharq last week, on the 24th and the 25th of October.

This is not the first time that Yusuf A. Alghanim & Sons Automotive sponsors an event that caters to the youths and their interests, particularly when the activities promote the betterment of their health and intellectual welling.

The tournament entailed a towing competition where teams were challenged to tow the 2015 Silverado whose weight reached over 2500kg. Other competitions tasked team members to carry 50kg sandbags, lift 100kg barbells and turn over a tire that weighed about 300kg, not to mention a heated and crowd-pleasing bench press competition. At the end of Body Beach Challenge, Chevrolet Alghanim awarded the top three teams trophies in recognition of their strength and capability to tow the supremely hefty 2015 Silverado.

2015 Silverado HD

Fight power with power with the all-new 2015 Silverado, Chevrolet's most advanced heavy-duty pickup truck that delivers a dependable, longest-lasting strength available in both the 2500HD and 3500HD suspension models. With payload towing capabilities that can reach 5,908kg, the best for any HD pickup yet, the 2015 Silverado empowers you with all the strength you need for all your heavy-duty demands.

Also available in WT, LT, and LTZ trims, the 2500HD and 3500HD Silverado reflects a function-driven solution and convenience, with larger rear doors on crew-cab models, spacious seats, and a two-inch increase rear legroom that enables easier entry and exit for back seat passengers.​


Interior Design

With its all-new interior, the 2015 Silverado HD features a new interior designed to bring you three key things: more comfort, less noise and a seamless connection to your digital world, thereby making life onboard easier, especially for a work truck. First, the cabin is quieter, thanks to the triple door seals and aerodynamic enhancements to the exterior. The redesigned seats, meanwhile, offer more comfort and support than ever while an all-new instrument cluster features a six-gauge cluster and integrated center control display. All knobs and buttons are larger for easier control even when wearing gloves. Also included is the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system that connects the passengers with the world, thanks to the hands-free smartphone integration and easy-to-use Bose sound system.


Exterior Design

Silverado HD's all-new exterior communicates strength and capability, while also enhancing aerodynamics for improved efficiency and reduced wind noise; it also improves cooling for more consistent power under tough conditions. Indeed, because HD pickups are frequently used for towing under adverse conditions, engineers paid particular attention to airflow for both engine cooling and the engine air intakes. Starting with air inlets sized to reduce drag and improve efficiency, engineers tested cooling airflow in the wind tunnel and on the road to make sure the engines could maintain power on long upgrades at high ambient temperatures. Meanwhile, the stiffness of the frames contributes to improved handling and ride comfort, while the strength of the frames enhances payload and towing capability.


Under the Hood

The Silverado HD's standard engine on all Silverado HDs is the 6.0L Vortec gas V-8, with continuously variable valve timing, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. It is rated at 360-hp and 380 lb.-ft. of torque while a 322-hp version of the engine is standard on all 3500 models. Pickups with either version are E85 FlexFuel capable.


Safety and Protection Features

The 2015 Silverado HD will be available with segment-exclusive safety features such as Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning with an Active Safety Seat, and Front and Rear Park Assist. Head-curtain and seat-mounted side airbags are standard on 2500 and available on 3500 models. In addition, the legendary Z71 Package includes a unique Off-Road screen in the Driver Information Center and grille, as well as Rancho® monotube shocks and custom graphics on the instrument cluster and pickup box.
