Description

The third generation of Silverado was introduced introduced in 2012 alongside the related GMC Sierra in Detroit, Michigan. The 2500HD was introduced as a 2015 model year, featuring a 6.0L L96 flex fuel capable Vortec engine combined with a 6l90e transmission, installed with engine oil and transmission fluid coolers for hauling/towing applications.

New features to the 2500HD includes a Driver Assist Package such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), a Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS), and a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS). Further enhancements include the OnStar telematics system with wi-fi capabilities, and new exterior options.

Overview

The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Monster is a low class D vehicle in Asphalt Xtreme, as part of the original lineup of cars. Like the Land Rover Defender, Ford Focus RS, and Predator X-18 Intimidator, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Monster starts at a rank of 1.

Requiring 10 of its blueprints to unlock, the Silverado 2500HD Monster requires 4 minutes for oil changes and cost Credits 200 per change.

Being a monster truck, the 2500HD Monster is a heavily modified fictitious depiction using the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD double cab as a base. Notable differences include a mesh covering the entirety of the headlights and grille, colored bumpers, fog lights, a large set of vertical exhausts from the side of the truck, and a roof rack.

Performance

The Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Monster can be described as somewhat of a mixed bag overall. In terms of lap time, the 2500HD Monster is by far the fastest monster truck in the game, and is capable of being faster than the archetype-leading Perlini 105F Red Tiger, and also being the very best option for certain tracks. On the other hand, the Silverado Monster is a far worse option than the Chevrolet Bel Air for multiplayer, lacking the agility, acceleration, and handling capabilities of the Bel-Air that is needed to be a competitive multiplayer vehicle.

Despite this, the Silverado Monster's stats is nothing to scoff at. The 6.1 long nitro acceleration is horrid for the archetype, being as slow as the likes of the DeLorean DMC-12's 6 seconds, and Hummer H1's 5.9 seconds. All-in nitro acceleration is a much different story however, at 3.2 seconds from 0 to all-in nitro speeds at maximum rank, the Silverado becomes an extremely fast accelerating vehicle, being only behind the likes of the Chevrolet El Camino 1980's 2.85 seconds. Steering response is heavier and actual handling capabilities is worse than the Bel-Air, but is fairly consistent to predict and much more stable and drivable than the El Camino.

The real power of the Silverado Monster lays within its top speed stats, as it is very high in the archetype, especially if one is capable of utilizing all-in nitro for an extended period of time. Like the other monster trucks, and mirrored somewhat with Ford Focus RS, the 2500HD Monster is prone to unreliable behavior when barrel rolling, wrecking due to performing far too many barrel rolls on a jump, as a result, drivers must take barrel roll ramps with caution. Drift-boosting capabilities are not very powerful with long nitro, but gets significantly more powerful when all-in nitro is activated, allowing max airspeed to be easily reached on even the most steep of ramps.

Usage

Being locked at level 15 without the use of rank-ups, the Silverado is unremarkable. It is a decently quick, but better options like the Chevrolet C10 are available. Like most monster trucks, the Silverado is also not the best option for multiplayer, especially since its lackluster acceleration puts it at greater risk of not achieving a knockdown needed to gain the lead. Simply put, there is not much use for the Silverado Monster at level 15.

At level 50, the Silverado comes into its own as the best monster truck for lap times, especially for unboosted times. While trickier to drive than other archetypes, the Silverado Monster can absolutely demolish some tracks in the game. All-in nitro can be maintained on some tracks, which coupled with near instant acceleration and airspeed capabilities, can far outshine the benefits other vehicles may have. Multiplayer, like in the lower ranks, is where the Silverado is a questionable choice at best. While a high top speed for a monster truck could be sometimes useful, the severely worse acceleration than the Bel-Air makes it a very high risk option to get the important initial knockdown of a race. Monster trucks are also extremely unforgiving if mistakes are made, wrecking with no nitro left can spell disaster, barrel rolls also can be risky to perform, and simply running out of nitro can severely hamper momentum.

* when using the Land Rover Defender as 100 % benchmark

With the 4th highest modifier in the game, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD has very high top speed for its class. With such a low nitro duration, a high top speed means the Silverado can cover more ground within the period of time of boost being active, an oftentimes valuable benefit that can make the difference between an all-in nitro segment continuing or being put to a complete halt. What is worth noting is that the Silverado all-in speed is higher than its most direct rival, the 105F Red Tiger, and while the Red Tiger may have better max airspeed, the Silverado can reach it's airspeed much easier and much more often.

Requiring Class-D Blueprints 22 of its own blueprints to activate, the Silverado receives a modest boost in performance. While still being the best for lap times, the Hummer H1's massive overclock performance increase may be something to consider as a high top speed but worse acceleration competitor to the Silverado.

While useful in a certain few tracks, the extra tank is an awkward match with the Silverado. Knockdowns at the start can help fill up the tank almost instantly, and gives a sizeable top speed boost. On the other hand, because monster trucks are not amazing in terms of refilling boost, refilling the nitro becomes very difficult to do in a short period of time, especially when using the all-in technique. In short extra tank should be used only if the driver is adequate enough to use it well.

Boosted Wheels is a complete waste on the Silverado Monster since it already doesn't lose speed on rough terrain.

Nitro Recharger is not really necessary as optimal runs don't allow lengthy period of times for recharging, although nothing is lost when using it. It could be useful for multiplayer in the event the player runs out of boost, but not needed for hotlapping.

Time-Limited Events

Being the main use for the Silverado Monster, it can utterly demolish other vehicles on Mountain Village, Forbidden Oasis, and Emerald Forest, while also being highly competitive in Himalayan Mountains and Temple Race. While it can do well on barrier-restricted tracks such as Off-Piste Race and Desert Sandstorm, trucks, and notably the 105F Red Tiger can outperform it on these tracks. Being a D class vehicle however makes the Silverado available for all Championships which is a very useful benefit the 105F Red Tiger does not have.

Conclusion

While not universally powerful and tricky to drive, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Monster is the undisputed monster truck for limited time events, its lap times can set benchmarks on tracks where it excels in, and can dominate in these select tracks. Held back by its price and a more limited use it offers compared to other kings in the game, the Silverado Monster is a car worth maxing after a player has maxed out more universally viable cars such as the Lynx DCC 2016-J and the Mini All4Racing X-Raid.

Career

The Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Monster is required for the following Stars Star goals in the following career races:

  • Race 110 (Class B, levels 18–20)
    • Recommended level: 18
    • Event Reward: Bronze Box Bronze Box
    • Tip: Level 15 (or lower) can be done on this track if one is to exploit the Silverado Monster's knockdown ability to prevent other drivers from overtaking, however keep in mind that Racing Blast is a very mismatched track for monster trucks, and means that it will take longer to finish the race.
