Silverado 1500 Towing Specs

For those who may want more specifics around the Silverado's towing capacity, I recently came across this chart that breaks down the figures across the current models. I expect the figures to be slightly higher on the diesel, but Chevy hasn't really given us many specifics as of yet.

Great diagram.
Often these truck segments come with heavy discounts and someone willing to wait for a good deal can get a better spec with a higher tow rating. Down the road that can mean a better resale value among other perks.

Ford's newest powerstroke engine delivers fairly similar specs, but it seems to have really dropped the ball with fuel economy figures. Unless you're content with the base 2wd model, it really doesn't seem like its worth the investment.

For the average recreational owner the Sierra should feel a bit lighter off the line due to its carbon fiber bed compared to other pick up's.
I wish Ford made that move to the F-150's, it would give towing another edge.

I think that new carbon bed only saved around 60 pounds, and I find it hard to believe that its as durable as a steel bed. GMC's early testing reports its more resistant to scratches and dents than the traditional design.

Thank you for sharing i am very interested to buy a Silverado truck, basically we are running a towing company in new york we have a lot of trucks which we use for multiple purposes like Fast Tow Truck Service, Long Distance Towing services, etc but I am willing to buy a truck for my personal truck, so I think Silverado is the best option for me.
