If you need to do any serious towing, you need a truck that can keep up with your needs. Chevrolet recently announced that the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD has increased its maximum towing capacity for the 2021 model year. This, along with some other updates, make it one of the best heavy-duty trucks you can buy.

Last year, the Silverado 3500HD has a maximum towing capacity of 35,500 pounds. For 2021, that limit has increased to 36,000 pounds. Chevrolet said this increase was achieved through changes to the wheels and suspension. You can get this maximum towing capacity with the Work Truck trim with a regular cab, two-wheel drive, the Max Tow Package, dual rear wheels, and the 6.6-liter Duramax® diesel engine.

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD is also adding some new technology innovations with five new trailering features including an enhanced cargo bed camera view, a trailer length indicator when changing lanes, an improved rear trailer view, a jack-knife alert, and a rear side camera view.

If you are looking for ways to make your Silverado HD stand out from the crowd, there are four new special editions available for 2021. These include the Carhartt Special Edition, the Midnight Edition, the Z71 Sport Edition, and the Z71 Chrome Sport model.

You can find the 2021 Silverado HD 3500 HD at Greenwood Chevrolet in Fort Meade, FL.

Silverado HD and Sierra HD Win Technology Innovation Award at CES

Chevrolet Silverado HD in Fort Meade, FL

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD have been singled out by ALG to receive a Technology Innovation Award. ALG is an organization that forecasts the residual value of cars in the U.S. and Canada. They awarded the prize to General Motors for the innovative trailering camera systems on the Silverado and Sierra. This is the second year that ALG has awarded the technology prize at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Trailer views, inside and out

The judges heaped praise on the trailering systems of the Sierra and Silverado, which employ numerous cameras to provide multiple views around the vehicles from the bed, around the outside of the vehicle, and even through the trailer.  A transparent trailer view in the vehicles uses cameras to create a view representing what’s immediately behind the trailer, taking the stress out of backing a trailer and eliminating the need for a second person to help you maneuver. You’ll be able to enjoy a clear view of what’s behind the trailer on an 8-inch infotainment touch screen on the truck’s dashboard. This handy technology is more than user friendly — it’ll give you a sense of security greater than ever before.
