Used Chevy Silverado 1500 Powertrain and Towing

When you're choosing a pickup, you want to know that you're picking one with the strength and power you need to get the job done. That's something you're likely to get with the used Chevy Silverado 1500 models on our lot.

You'll find trucks with a variety of engines, including:

  • 4.3L V6: 285 horsepower, 305 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.3L V8: 355 horsepower, 383 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.2L V8: 420 horsepower, 460 lb-ft of torque

These engines have a hefty towing capacity as well. The 4.3L engine can tow more than 7,500 pounds, the 5.3L engine can tow more than 11,000 pounds, and if you really need some brawn, the 6.2L engine can help you tow up to 12,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Depending on your engine, your powertrain can be completed with either a 6-speed automatic transmission or an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Chevy Silverado 1500 Driver-Assist Options

The used Silverado 1500 trucks in our inventory may also come equipped with a variety of driver-assist features that can really help you take on a tough day of work.

For example, if you need to attach a trailer, the available rear vision camera with dynamic gridlines can help you line up your hitch by providing a real-time video of the area directly behind your vehicle when you're in reverse.

Other possible trailering features include:

  • Trailer Brake Controller
  • Trailer Sway Control
  • Tow/Haul mode

Tow/Haul mode is an available setting for your transmission that optimizes your shift schedules to maximize performance and prevent hunting for gears, especially on steep inclines.

On the other hand, if you need to slow things down on a descent, trailer brake controller links your trailer brakes with your truck's so that you can stop more easily when pulling heavy weights.

Payload and Cargo Specs for the Used Chevy Silverado 1500

Drivers who have a heavy load to carry will like that the Chevy Silverado 1500 has a payload of more than 2,000 pounds.

With three different cargo boxes to choose from, you can pack your bed full:

  • Short box cargo volume: 53.4 cubic feet
  • Standard box cargo volume: 61 cubic feet
  • Long box cargo volume: 76.3 cubic feet

The cargo boxes may also feature a CornerStep rear bumper that carves a foothold out of the corner of your rear bumper. This helps you easily climb up into the bed, with tread protection to help keep you steady, even with muddy work boots.

If you need a little extra space, certain configurations let you flip the rear set up to reveal additional floor storage inside the cabin.
