Rugged Build

The Chevy Silverado 1500 utility is so impressive thanks to remarkable engineering and craftsmanship.

The result is an ultra-powerful model that can handle up to 7,600 pounds with its 4.3L V6 engine, 11,100 pounds with its 5.3L V8, and a whopping 12,500 pounds with the available 6.2L V8 engine!
