TRUSTED & PROVEN
Silverado is the rock-solid pickup people count on year after year. It's the truck with built-in strength, power and durability. The foundation is provided by the rugged, yet lightweight three-piece modular frame. The power is highlighted by an available 403 horsepower VortecTM 6.2L High Output V8. The fuel efficiency available with the VortecTM 5.3L V8 is the envy of its class, with better V8 highway and city fuel efficiency than Ford F-150.1 And the capabilities make Silverado ready for your biggest challenges, with payloads that range up to 865 kg (1,908 lb) and towing capacities up to 4,853 kg (10,700 lb). Something else you can count on with Silverado - its renowned dependability is backed by the best coverage of any full-size pickup in Canada. The 2013 Chevy Silverado. Ready to prove itself to you.
BUILT-IN TOWING CAPABILITY
Silverado is engineered to handle the demands of towing, with a series of standard trailering features included in every conventional gas powered model. Trailer Sway Control helps keep your truck and trailer heading in the proper direction automatically. The Tow/Haul mode transmission adjusts the shift schedule to avoid "hunting" for the right gear while trailering. Hill Start Assist holds the truck stationary for about a second after the brake is released, so you can accelerate without worrying about the truck rolling backwards. Cruise grade braking automatically downshifts to help slow the truck on long descents, reducing conventional brake component wear. In addition, the available Trailering Special Equipment Package adds such useful features as a weight-distributing trailer hitch platform with a 51 mm (2-in.) receiver and a 7-wire harness. It all adds up to substantial towing capacities - up to 4,854 kg (10,700 lb), when properly equipped.
A ROCK-SOLID BACKBONE
A rock-solid truck requires a super strong foundation. And that is precisely what Silverado's three-piece modular frame delivers. The fully boxed front section is hydroformed under extreme hydraulic pressure, resulting in greater strength and more dimensionally precise mounting points. The rear portion of the Silverado frame is fully boxed all the way to the spare tire cross member, where it becomes a C-channel. The advantage of this modular configuration is that it places the support where it's needed most, while reducing weight elsewhere. This translates into better fuel efficiency and increased payloads - which on a Crew Cab equipped with the available MAX Trailering Package go up to 879 kg (1,937 lb). That's a foundation you can build upon.
