10 Things You Should Know About the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado
#3. Towing? Hauling? No Problem
The full frame design of the Chevrolet Silverado combined with its available V-8 power help to make it a great choice for a wide range of different towing or hauling tasks. When properly equipped, the Silverado 1500 can handle just under 2,000 lbs of cargo in its truck bed, and it is also cleared to tow 10,700 lbs.
A number of features assist the Silverado in achieving these lofty ratings. The truck can be had with an automatic locking rear differential that prevents wheel spin when towing a trailer across wet or snowy terrain and a tow/haul transmission feature reprograms the vehicle's shift points to reduce the number of gear changes made while hauling.
