New heavy duty pickup hits showrooms

The heavy duty pickup segment is where the hard work is done on a lot of farms, from pulling big wagons to hauling heavy loads. Earlier this year Chevrolet officially debuted the 2015 heavy duty line, but those trucks are just now getting to dealers. We caught a glimpse during the National Farm Machinery Show in February.

We dug into the Chevrolet media kit to pull together some key information on the new trucks. This gallery offers you a closer look at the new rigs, the features they offer and the engines that power them. There are a few key features of the 2500HD and 3500HD, we'll share here, but also check out each image where we go deeper in depth on the new truck.

The trucks feature all-new styling with enhanced cooling air flow, which allows the trucks to maintain full engine power under heavy loads, even in hot temperatures. You'll also find new cabs and interiors for improved space and comfort.

And the new rigs have their share of high-tech add-ons as well including Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning with an Active Safety Seat, and there's Front and Rear Park Assist. Diesel versions - a farm favorite - feature diesel exhaust braking, which helps with towing.

There are a range of models, box sizes and cab formats for these new rigs. Here are the model choices available for the 2500HD and 3500HD:
