The Chevrolet Silverado is never short on power. For more demanding towing jobs, the 2500 and 3500 have always been there to work harder and pull more than the Silverado 1500. A redesign for the new decade makes the Silverado HD look great, but nobody buys a heavy-duty truck just because they think it looks nice. What heavy-duty customers really want is a towing machine. Let’s see how much the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD can tow.
2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Towing Capacity
Considering that both the 2500 and 3500 are part of the Silverado HD series, there are two total engines that make the Silverado HD as powerful as it is. Both are 6.6L V8 engines, but the gasoline engine grants the Silverado HD a maximum trailering weight of 17,370 lbs. while the Turbo-Diesel V8 can pull twice that. Pairing the Turbo-Diesel with an Allison® 10-speed transmission, the Silverado HD, when properly equipped, maxes out at 35,500 lbs. of towing strength.
2020 Redesign Changes
For the model year 2020, the Silverado Heavy Duty (HD) has been redesigned to shake up the heavy-duty truck segment. This puts the Silverado HD into its fourth generation, but the differences aren’t just visual. Adding an extra six inches in overall length, the Silverado HD feels roomier inside and gets better bed space. The headlights look thin and squinted, like most vehicles designed for the new decade, and in most trim levels, the Chevrolet logo is set aside or removed from the grille entirely in favor of having the name cut into the grille itself.
