Why Should You Choose The Chevrolet Silverado 1500?

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 towing capacity makes it a great choice for any hard-working driver in Deptford or Cherry Hill, but power isn’t the only reason that this model excels over rivals. Here’s what you should keep in mind:

  • The Chevy Silverado 1500 towing capacity comes in at 13,400 pounds when properly equipped. That means it can tow more than a 2020 Ford F-150, which tops out at 13,200 pounds. It has an even bigger advantage over the 2020 RAM 1500, which can tow up to 12,750 pounds.
  • The 2020 Silverado is offered in eight different trim levels, while the Ford F-150 is only offered in seven. That means it’s easier to find a model with all the features you desire, without paying for features that you won’t use.
  • The RAM 1500 doesn’t offer any complimentary maintenance coverage. If you purchase a new Chevrolet Silverado 1500, your scheduled visits for the first 12,000 miles, or the first year of ownership, will be covered.
