Take On the Toughest Towing Jobs with the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500


When Tewksbury and Lowell drivers need to move heaven and earth, they know that only one truck can get the job done and get it done right: the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. With its three burly powertrains, the 1500 boasts the kind of towing capacity that makes other trucks tremble in fear, and gives you all the power you need to take on the heaviest cargo loads. With the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, the question of “is this too heavy to tow?” is rendered moot—the 1500 can handle it. See for yourself what each powertrain can do for you.

4.3L V6 Engine

At one end of the powertrain spectrum, we have the 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 engine, which proves that big things can come in small packages. The smallest engine in the line also boasts Best-in-Class torque in the realm of V6 engines, with 305 lb.-ft. at your disposal. So while it can “only” tow 7600 lbs. (a maximum towing capacity other trucks can only dream of), it can pick up speed like nobody’s business, and will get you from a standstill to highway speed in no time.

5.3L V8 Engine

In the Goldilocks middle of the powertrain spectrum is the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine, which is sure to be just right for those in need of a workhorse that can still commute with the best of them. Its maximum towing capacity of 11,100 lbs. puts other pickups to shame, but the real shock is how efficiently its able to carry that weight. With a Best-in-Class fuel economy of 16 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway, this engine puts other gas-guzzling powerhouses to shame.

6.2L V8 Engine

At the very top of the heap stands this beastly engine, which boasts a beefy 420-hp, 460 lb.-ft. of torque performance. The standout star, though, is its Best-in-Class towing capacity of—get this—12,500 lbs. Almost anything you can think to tow, this baby can handle, and it does so with the same buttery smooth and efficient performance that mark Chevy’s EcoTec3 engines as standouts in the segment. When it absolutely, positively, needs to get done yesterday, this engine can do it.
