2021 Chevy Silverado Review

Make an incredible haul when you pick up the 2021 Chevy Silverado truck. During your hunt through Milford, Manchester, and Middletown, Connecticut, you may come across this truck and wonder what it’s all about and if it’s for you. Key Cars can demonstrate how it can help you with your towing and how everything else in the truck works.

Chevy Silverado Engine Specs

Strong Engine Options

The Silverado’s strength stems from the six engine choices you can get. Two engines that stand out include the standard 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 and the available 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine.

If you choose the former 4.3L, it generates 285 horsepower with 305 lb-ft of torque and uses a 6-speed automatic transmission. The latter 6.2L generates 420 horsepower with 460 lb-ft of torque and switches gears with the 10-speed automatic transmission.

Other available engines like the Duramax® 3.0L Turbo-Diesel I-6 achieve the ultimate gas mileage at 23 city/33 highway MPG.1 With this particular engine, you’ll also be capable of traveling up to 726 miles in one clip.2 This engine generates 277 horsepower with 460 lb-ft of torque and works with the 10-speed transmission.

Chevrolet Silverado Towing

Check Out the Towing Capacity and Payload

With the standard 4.3L engine and the proper equipment, you’ll be able to tow up to 7,900 pounds and have a payload of 2,060 pounds. For drivers interested in the most robust engine, the optional 6.2L engine gives you a maximum towing capacity of 13,300 pounds when properly equipped. The wheels will be spinning with all you can attach to your trailer. When properly equipped, this engine carries a maximum payload of 2,280 pounds, the largest among all the engines.

Chevrolet Silverado Interior Towing Technology

Investigate Towing and Infotainment Technology

Modern-day technology makes towing just another item on your to-do list. That’s because you’ll be given multiple virtual tools to get the work done. If you add the In-Vehicle Trailering System, it shows you pre-departure checklists, towing profiles, service reminders, and the ability to perform a brake light test. You’ll be able to view this on the 8-inch Chevrolet Infotainment 3 touchscreen upgrade.

While you’re on the go or out of your Chevy, use the myChevrolet Mobile App. It also provides the same system capabilities that the Trailering System displays but through your smartphone. You’ll also benefit from a catalog of how-to videos and an online glossary explaining any unfamiliar trailering terms.

That’s not all. Devices aimed at your trailer operations like Trailer Sway Control, Hill Start Assist, and Auto Grade Braking keep your trailer on solid ground. The available Driver Mode Selector supplying Normal, Sport, Tow/Haul, Off-Road, Terrain, and Snow/Ice work in tandem with those systems.

With the integrated trailer brake controller, you’ll get a Trailer Theft Alert system to prevent loss of your trailer and Electric Parking Brake Hookup Assist to align you for a successful truck-trailer connection.
