The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado lineup boasts the Silverado 1500, Silverado 2500HD, and Silverado 3500HD. The towing and payload ratings of these trucks prove Chevy’s dedication towards building trucks that provide valuable assistance on any job site at any time.
Changes to suspension and wheels will afford the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD a 500-pound increase to its maximum towing rating from 2020, meaning the 2021 model can tow up to 36,000 pounds.
In order to reach that number, you’ll need a Work Truck trim with a regular cab, a dual-rear-wheel setup, two-wheel drive, the Max Tow Package, and the 6.6L Duramax® diesel engine channeled through a 10-speed Allison automatic transmission.
If you don’t need over 30,000 pounds of towing capacity, you can instead opt for the 18,510 pounds offered by the 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500HD. The 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 more than holds its own with a maximum towing rating of 13,300 pounds.
Payload ratings also impress across the 2021 Chevy Silverado lineup. The 3500HD can haul 7,442 pounds, the 2500HD has a max payload rating of 3,900, and the 1500 can hold 2,280 pounds of cargo in the state-of-the-art Durabed.
The 2021 Chevy Silverado lineup offers a class-leading 15 available camera trailering views, so you tow your cargo with peace of mind.
