The new Chevy Silverado HD has quite a few updates but it is its towing prowess that has drawn quite a lot of attention. The 2021 Chevy Silverado HD is touted as the best-in-class when it comes to tow ratings, marking the end of the Ford Super Duty trucks’ long reign as the towing kings. You can get attractive deals on long haul heavy duty pickup trucks when you browse through AutoBidMaster’s repairable salvage trucks for sale. Let’s take a closer look at what the new towing king has to offer.

Silverado 3500 HD Powertrain

Dubbed ‘the strongest, most capable Silverado HD ever’, the 2021 Silverado 3500 HD comes in two engine options – a Duramax 6.6-Liter Turbo-Diesel V8 engine or a 6.6 V8. The diesel option produces outstanding horsepower and responsive torque. It features a GM-exclusive air induction system and a variable geometry turbocharger. The engine is paired with an Allison® 10-speed Automatic Transmission to deliver 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.

The Competition

The 2021 Chevy Silverado HD is a serious challenger for rivals such as the Ford F-350 and the Ram 3500. The F-350’s 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V8 has a max towing rating of 35,400 lbs, while the F-450 stands at 37,000 lbs. The other contender for the throne, the Ram 3500 has a max towing rating of 35,100 lbs. The 2021 Chevy Silverado HD, on the other hand, has a maximum towing rating of up to 36,000 pounds, as certified to SAE J2807 standards. The impressive towing allows you to tackle the biggest jobs with ease. Apart from suspension updates and changes to the wheels, the 2021 Chevy Silverado HD also embodies a variety of leading-edge features, such as Trailer-Angle Indicator, Trailer Length Indicator, Jack-Knife Alert, Rear Trailer View with guidelines, Cargo Bed View enhancement, and a Rear Side View enhancement.
