When we talk about getting things done, this is the heavy-duty pickup you can trust. Durable and reliable, the 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 2500® was designed with advanced technology that has been perfected and used in the long dynasty of trucks built for performance: With a Vortec engine and 6-speed automatic transmission, it has a robust chassis to give you 3.084 kg of towing capacity. Impressive elements that work with each other to keep things under control. No matter where your job may take you, Chevrolet Silverado 2500® is with you all the way.
Load, towing and hauling
Chevrolet was pioneer in adopting the new classification of a structured trailer, defined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). This was established to provide a consistent approach to measuring tow capacity within the industry. To achieve this, SAE performed different tests considering different load capacity and evaluating the approximate vehicle weight with a driver and a passenger, and the pickup’s towing equipment, to set the rules. Chevrolet Silverado 2500® meets them all.
Silverado’s carrying capacity is impressive; it holds up to 1,537lb* so you can carry anything you want. Chevrolet Silverado 2500® achieves a drag of 3.084 kg* with the help of a powerful Vortec V8 engine with 315 horsepower and 335 lb-ft of torque. The Active Fuel Management (AFM) automatically allows you to convert the 8-cylinder engine to a V4 engine in light load conditions, ie it works with only four cylinders to improve fuel efficiency and make your pickup a saving vehicle. In addition to doing the hard work, Chevrolet Silverado 2500® saves a lot of fuel.

Pickups built on a solid foundation
Our chassis with suspension and high-strength steel with full frame, allows Chevrolet Silverado 2500® handle heavy loads and give the driver the ride quality he deserves.
The independent front suspension allows each front wheel to react separately on rough terrain. The rod end is tall and heavy for easy handling larger loads. The upper control arms, forged and machined with precision, withstand the force of the pickup. These front suspension components keep each wheel upright and increase adhesion to the road.
The rear suspension has three-inch springs and coil springs and an asymmetrical design that holds large loads better. Staggered rear dampers are designed to damp the vertical motion of the pickup. These two components of the rear suspension reduce the bounce of wheels upon acceleration.
This combination of suspensions provides comfortable handling for all load conditions.
The regular cab version has seating configuration for 3 passengers in two available versions, a 4x2 crossover with comfortable suspension for all driving conditions and load another off-road 4x4 version.
