5 Standout Features of the 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500
Whether you’re in need of a family vehicle that’s perfect for hauling an RV or a powerful workhorse that can handle heavy-duty loads, the 2021 Chevy Silverado 2500 can get the job done right. This truck comes equipped with several best-in-class features, including technology and trailering capabilities that are remarkably advanced. The Silverado 2500 leads its segment in almost every category.
1. Significant Power
Each trim level comes equipped with the standard 6.6-liter V8 and 6-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain produces 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque.
Drivers who want to upgrade their power even further should consider the 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8 that cranks out 445 horsepower and an unbelievable 910 lb-ft of torque. This turbodiesel engine is complemented by a 10-speed automatic transmission that has impeccably smooth shifting.
2. Swift Acceleration
Snappy acceleration is not an aspect that is found in every heavy-duty truck. In fact, most large trucks find it difficult to rev up while hauling such a substantial load. But Chevy really prioritized acceleration in the Silverado 2500.
This truck can reach 0 to 60 mph in just about 6.7 seconds, which is an incredible feat for such a heavy vehicle. Models equipped with the diesel engine will find the 10-speed automatic transmission to handle the power boost with ease, delivering power smoothly to the wheels without hesitation.
3. 15-View Camera System
The trailering camera system is truly ahead of its time. 15 camera views help you to keep an eye on your vehicle at every angle. This available feature is definitely worth upgrading to as it gives the driver peace of mind while navigating such a large vehicle. These camera angles can even account for the size of your trailer while towing, helping you to keep it centered and stable.
4. Best-In-Class Towing Capacity
The wheelbase of the Silverado 2500 has been extended, ranging between 141.6 inches to 172 inches in length depending on your cab configuration.
This new wheelbase not only makes the cabin and truck-bed more spacious, but it increases the overall hauling ability of this truck. When properly equipped, the 2021 Silverado 2500 can handle towing up to 36,000 pounds, which is more than enough to pull anything from a small boat to a full-size RV.
5. Spacious and Comfortable Cabin
Thanks to the extended wheelbase, the Silverado 2500 has an expanded interior that creates a comfortable ride for every passenger. The rear seat has increased legroom and headroom and even taller adults can stretch out without feeling cramped. The larger cabin space also gives drivers a massive dashboard, plush armrest, and plenty of small-item storage to keep your personal space organized.
Chevy has perfected the Silverado 2500 with this second model of its fourth generation. Come see us at A&T Chevrolet to test out all of these segment-leading features for yourself. You’ll be glad you did.
