Towing and Hauling: What the Silverado 1500 Does Best

Even in a segment distracted by innovation for innovation’s sake, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 remains a truck made to provide work-ready performance. You won’t find the aluminum bed of the Ford F-150, but you’ll have a roll-formed, high-strength steel bed that is far less susceptible to puncturing. Would you prefer something new, or would you like something that works and lasts?

The Chevy pushes forward in the right places, with features like an EZ Lift & Lower tailgate making it easier than ever to load cargo. As you might expect, there’s also a string of features designed to enhance control, safety, and convenience while you’re towing, including:

  • Integrated Brake Controller

  • StabiliTrak with Trailer Sway Control

  • Auto Grade Braking

  • Rear Vision Camera

  • 4-wheel Disc Brakes with Duralife Rotors

Combined with the vehicle’s generous selection of traction and stability control features, these amenities make it clear that the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado has been designed to tow and carry like the professional that it is.
