Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Towing Capacity

2022 Chevy Silverado 2500 Towing Trailer

If you want to go fishing or hunting around Sumner and want to pull your boat or ATVs or maybe you need a truck to handle heavy workloads on the job site, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD is ideal for all jobs! But what is the Chevy Silverado 2500 towing capacity and payload? Sunset Chevrolet is here to help. Read on to learn more about the Chevy Silverado 2500 towing capacity, engine specs, and more. When you’re ready to get behind the wheel, contact Sunset Chevrolet.

The Silverado is known for towing, and the appropriately named heavy-duty model is no different. The 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500 towing capacity maxes out at a massive 18,510 pounds when properly equipped. Let’s take a closer look at the capabilities of this powerful truck.

What Does “Properly Equipped” Mean?

You hear “properly equipped” a lot with towing. Your truck will have to be properly equipped to get the maximum Chevy Silverado 2500 towing capacity, but what does that mean? For the Silverado 2500HD, it means:

  • Regular cab/long bed combination
  • 17” wheels
  • Fifth-wheel/gooseneck hitch

You’ll still have plenty of towing power without this specific combination, but if you need that full 18,510 pounds, this is what you’ll want.

That’s what it means to be properly equipped for towing, but we think every new truck you drive home from Sunset Chevrolet is properly equipped for a long, comfortable future of automotive savings thanks to Oil Changes for Life and Warranty Protection for Life, Sunset Auto Family exclusives.
