Chevrolet is continuously pushing the boundaries of towing technology when it comes to its powerful pickups. As evidence of this, its new 2021 Silverado 3500 HD takes towing to the extreme with an incredible towing capacity of 36,000 pounds when properly equipped.
For the 2020 model year, the capable Silverado 3500 HD could tow a maximum of 35,500 pounds. In order to top this already-impressive number, Chevy got to work improving the pickup’s suspension and wheels. The end result was an extra 500 pounds of towing capacity.
To achieve the full 36,000-pound capacity, the 2021 Silverado 3500 HD needs to have a Regular Cab configuration, a dual-rear-wheel setup, and two-wheel drive. The truck must also be equipped with the Max Trailering Package and the powerful 6.6-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel V8 engine with the Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission.
Chevrolet also makes towing large loads a breeze with a number of technologies on the heavy-duty truck. One such technology is the available Advanced Trailering System, which has pre-departure checklists, trailer maintenance reminders, and exterior trailer lighting diagnostics.
