From towing your boat or camper out of Gaffney for a weekend getaway with your family to hauling heavy equipment to your next job site in Spartanburg, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD can handle it with ease. Each model is built standard with a 6.0-liter V8 engine that provides up to 360 horsepower and 380 pounds-feet of torque, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
But, if you’re looking for even more grit for your driving adventures, there is also an available, turbocharged, 6.6-liter V8 diesel engine. This hearty engine boasts a remarkable 445 horsepower and 910 pounds-feet of torque.
Regarding towing capability, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD's limit seems endless. When hauling with a conventional tow hitch, you can tow up to 14,500 pounds, and if you use a fifth-wheel or gooseneck trailer, you can amp the maximum up to 18,100 pounds.
