The 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 Engine Options

When Freeport area drivers purchase a Silverado 1500, they get a choice between five different engine options. Depending on which engine you choose, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado towing capacity will vary. Look into each and determine which will have the towing capability you need:

  • 2.7L Turbo Engine: This engine comes standard for every Silverado 1500. For a base engine it has tons of power, creating up to 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque which lend to a 7,000-pound towing capacity.
  • 4.3L V6 Engine: This slightly larger engine has a slightly lower output, but it has a higher towing capacity: 285 hp of power and 305 lb-ft of torque, but a towing capacity of 7,900 pounds.
  • 5.3L V8 Engine: This engine is capable of towing up to 11,600 pounds. It generates an impressive 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque.
  • 6.2L V8 Engine: If you want the maximum towing capacity of 13,300-pound, this is the engine configuration you need. It also has the added bonus of impressive performance. It’s capable of reaching 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque!
  • 3.0L V6 Turbo-Diesel: Do you want a diesel powertrain? The V6 Turbo-Diesel can tow a maximum of 9,400 pounds and has an output of 260 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.
