Maximizing Your Chevy Silverado 2500 Towing Capacity

Achieving the 18,500 max towing capacity in your Chevy Silverado 2500 is easy when properly-appointed.

Meanwhile, available Digital Variable Steering Assist technology helps you stay smack in the center of your lane to reduce the chance of accidents.
  • 15 Cameras: Just how many cameras does the new Chevy Silverado 2500HD offer you? Fifteen cameras. That’s more than two per passenger if you’re counting, in six-passenger models. Whether parking, hitching up a trailer, or reversing, these cameras help you cover your blind spots and stay safer while making towing easier.
  • Advanced Trailering System: Springfield drivers can use their smartphones to access pre-departure checklists, exterior trailer lighting diagnostics, and trailer tire pressure/temperature monitoring.
