When it’s time to get the job done, you can trust the 2023 Chevy Silverado with your toughest tasks.
The Silverado 1500, which can tow more than 13,000 pounds when properly equipped, and you have a choice of powertrains that make this truck one of the most popular in the country. There are two V8 engines available, and the 6.2-liter V8 produces 460 lb.-ft. of torque. There’s also an available Duramax Diesel 3.0-liter inline-six that produces 305 horsepower and 495 lb.-ft. of torque. Even the turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine can pump out 420 lb.-ft. of torque.
All right … we know that the Silverado 1500 can tow “up to 13,300 pounds,” but what does that really look like? To get the most towing capacity out of your 1500, you’ll need the 6.2-liter V8 and equip it with the proper towing package. The 5.3-liter V8 can tow up to 11,500 pounds, and even the turbocharged four-cylinder can pull up to 9,500 pounds. That’s heavy work for any truck, but the Silverado is made to handle it. The 1500 can also haul a range of payloads in its bed, from 1,870 pounds to a max of 2,280 pounds.
Need more power? The Silverado HD series has you covered. This nameplate encompasses the 2500 and 3500 models, and here’s where the numbers get staggering. The gas-powered Silverado HD can tow up to 17,400 pounds, but the 6.6-liter inline six Duramax Diesel can tow up to 36,000 pounds. No, that’s not a typo. If you don’t need a crew cab option, the 3500 model with a dual rear axle can haul 7,442 pounds of payload.
