Power and Performance
Under the hood, a pair of potent powerplant options provide the necessary motivation to make even the heaviest tasks in Southampton and Warrington seem easy. Standard power comes from a 6.6-liter V-8 engine that produces 401 horsepower and a best-in-class gas torque rating of 464 pound-feet. The engine pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission and has a max conventional tow rating of 14,500 pounds. For even greater trailering capability, the Silverado 2500 HD can equip an available fifth-wheel/gooseneck package. Properly equipped, regular cabs can tow up 17,400 pounds, double cabs up to 17,100 pounds, and crew cab models up to 16,900 pounds.
If you're seeking to maximize heavy-duty performance, the available 6.6-liter Duramax® V-8 is sure to impress. Matched with an all-new Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission, this turbodiesel engine boosts output to 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque and enables a max tow rating of 18,500 pounds when properly equipped.
When it comes to hauling, this heavy-duty Silverado can carry almost anything you can fit in the bed. With more cargo volume than any truck in its class, the innovative Durabed features 12 standard tiedowns, BedSteps, and CornerSteps. Available Durabed features include a 120-volt power outlet, LED cargo lighting, and an exclusive Power Up/Down Tailgate. Max payload capacity reaches 3,700 pounds.
