Buying a new truck such as the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will provide you and your family with powerful capabilities, a robust engine, and an abundance of family-friendly features that will make your truck just as effective on the daily commute to school and work as it is doing hard work on the jobsite.
The tailgate and bed of a pickup truck afford you and your family all-new possibilities for both storage and entertainment. Whether you’re loading the bed up for a weekend getaway, using it as a makeshift sleeping surface, or hosting a tailgate to cheer on your favorite team, the bed and tailgate of a truck empower you to do much more.
The high-end horsepower of a pickup truck will help you pass other drivers on the highway or merge at high speeds. The strong torque numbers at low RPMs is what grants trucks the towing ability you need for serious work and serious play.
Several trucks run off the power of diesel, giving you new possibilities for how you might fuel your vehicle.
The highly capable towing numbers offered by trucks, such as the 9,700-pound maximum tow rating of the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500, will not go unappreciated when you’re behind the wheel of a new pickup.
A diesel engine provides pickup truck drivers with the best of both worlds. These engines are more efficient than the average truck engine, yet still managed to deliver a powerful amount of horsepower and torque. That’s precisely why each Chevrolet truck includes a diesel engine option.
The most popular of the Chevrolet Pickup trucks, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, has long had a diesel engine offering. The latest Silverado 1500 model can achieve 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque with its Duramax 3.0-liter Turbo-Diesel engine. With that amount of power at its disposal, the Silverado 1500 can tow up to 9,500 pounds.
The larger Silverado HD model can make even more use out of its diesel engine offering, a Duramax 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 that helps it produce up to 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. The Silverado HD can tow up to 36,000 pounds with that amount of power.
Even the mid-size Chevrolet Colorado comes with a diesel engine offering, helping it produce up to 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.
When it comes to towing and hauling, few vehicles can match the capabilities of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Thanks to some new advancements from the team at Chevrolet, it’s going to be even harder for the competition to catch up.
You might recognize the Multi-Flex Tailgate as an exclusive feature for the GMC Sierra pickup truck, where it is known by the MultiPro moniker. GM is now preparing to transfer that feature over to its Silverado line of trucks.
With this advanced tailgate technology, Silverado drivers will have access to six unique tailgate configurations. These configurations will make it easier than ever to store your supplies and cargo in the bed of the Silverado.
The Multi-Flex Tailgate isn’t the only advancement Chevrolet is introducing to the latest Silverado model. Accompanying this new tailgate is a plethora of trailering and towing enhancements for the signature Chevrolet truck.
Thanks to a more refined 2.7-liter Turbo engine, the tow rating of the Silverado 1500 Crew Cab increases to 9,300 pounds. The tow rating of Silverado models equipped with the 3.0-liter Duramax engine also increases to a maximum of 9,500 pounds.
These are only a few of the enhancements that the 2021 model of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is set to receive. Learn more about what this latest Silverado can offer to you by reaching out to our team at Greenwood Chevrolet.
