Heavy Duty Rig with Real-World Tow Rating

Real-World Towing

Chevy Trucks 2020 towing

In the heavy-duty pickup truck market, towing is a huge consideration, and now with the 2020 Silverado HD offering max towing at 35,500 pounds, Chevrolet can boast of tow ratings higher than its rivals.

Available lower-trim levels at Chevy trucks dealers are Work Truck, Custom, and LT that come with hydraulic-assist steering.

On the other hand, the higher trims available are Silverado HD LTZ and High Country, which get Chevy’s Enhanced Digital Variable Assist Steering.

This electric-assist steering setup allows us to control and use the truck in the Tow/Haul mode. The HD truck, engineered to permit additional damping and trailering, offers a significant improvement in the towing experience.

“With Silverado HD, Chevrolet can boast of tow ratings higher than its rivals.”

  2. Optional 6.6 L Duramax V8 diesel engine hooked to a 10-speed automatic (Allison) transmission, producing 910 lb-ft of torque and 445 horsepower. Maximum towing that you can achieve on a regular cab with this powertrain coupled with gooseneck hitch is 35,500 pounds.

After-Run Feature

Some types of Chevy trucks come equipped with Duramax’s after-run feature, which is available in Chevy Silverado HD. his feature improves the diesel engine’s longevity. When you put the transmission in park, but the engine needs additional cooling time, this feature enables it to cool for up to 15 minutes even after you kill the engine.

Transparent Trailer

One of the 15 views supported by the Advanced Trailering System from Chevrolet is the Transparent Trailer. A compatible back-mounted camera electronically combines the image with that from your truck’s tailgate camera. As a result, you can view the traffic behind the trailer, as if you are looking through glass.

This system unquestionably eliminates blind spots, and the need to travel with a friend while towing heavy trailers. However, it only works if a conventional trailer is being towed.

But you can get additional views that you may not see under the massive hood of the HD, using the eight available cameras. These features make maneuvering extremely smooth in tight corners.
