The Silverado's towing capacity of 13,300 pounds is ahead of its GMC Sierra 1500 sister pickup and the Ram 1500, but trails behind the Ford F-150. This makes the Chevrolet Silverado a highly competitive pickup truck that offers a great balance of power and performance. However, regarding the power, look for 2024 because the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado HD is getting more power, more technology and easier towing.

For the 2023 model year, Chevy has made some changes to the Duramax diesel powertrain. The updated turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six Duramax gains 28 horsepower and 35 pound-feet of torque, which results in an improved output of 305 horsepower and 495 pound-feet of torque. Chevy has achieved this by returning the turbo, new pistons with a revised combustion bowl, and new fuel injectors, which have helped give the new diesel more muscle.

Overall, the Chevrolet Silverado is a durable and reliable pickup truck that offers a wide range of powertrain options and a competitive towing capacity. The 2023 model year changes have improved the Duramax diesel powertrain, making it an even more attractive option for truck enthusiasts.
