Engine Towing Specs

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Three engines give Silverado 1500 shoppers options when it comes to performance. Explore their towing capacities alongside horsepower and torque:

  • The standard 4.3L V6 engine included in the Silverado 1500 WT puts out 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque. It can tow up to 7,600 pounds.
  • Upgrade to the 5.3L V8 engine for 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. That allows this configuration to tow up to 11,100 pounds.
  • At the top of the Silverado engine lineup is a 6.2L V8 engine. It delivers 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque which results in 12,500 pounds of towing capacity.

It’s worth going over your towing needs to see which model will best meet them. If you’re planning to tow a small boat to lakes near Orange Park, the 4.3L V6 may be enough. For large trailers, the 6.2L V8 is a stronger choice.
