2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 & Silverado HD - Greer, SC

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD are both powerful and capable trucks, but they’re far from identical. If you are looking to buy a Chevy pickup, here are some of the key differences between the Silverado 1500 and Silverado HD.

Different Sizes 

The Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD trucks are bigger compared to the Silverado 1500. The Silverado 1500 is classified as a half-ton truck, while the 2500HD is a three-quarter-ton truck and the 3500HD is a one-ton truck. This means Silverado HD models have larger dimensions in terms of weight, length, width, and height.

Different Capabilities

Because the Chevy Silverado HD is bigger, it can tow and haul more weight than the Chevy Silverado 1500. Gas-powered Silverado 3500HD trucks have a payload of up to 7,442 pounds and a maximum towing capacity of 17,200 pounds. Diesel 3500HD models can carry up to 6,523 pounds and tow up to 36,000 pounds. The Silverado 2500HD also offers impressive capacity, with up to a 3,979-pound payload and towing up to 18,500 pounds. While the Chevy Silverado 1500 can’t tow and haul quite as much, it still offers powerful capability for its size, with a maximum towing capacity of 13,300 pounds and a maximum payload of 2,280 pounds.

More Engine Options

The 2021 Silverado 1500 has six engine options for you to choose from, whereas the 2021 Silverado HD only presents two. You can equip the Silverado 1500 with a standard 4.3-liter V6, 2.7-liter turbo, 3.0-liter Duramax® turbodiesel, two 5.3-liter V8 engines, or a 6.2-liter V8. For the Silverado HD, you can choose between a 6.6-liter V8 and a Duramax® turbodiesel engine.

Overall, the Chevy Silverado 1500 is best for light-duty jobs and everyday driving. If you’re looking for a truck to handle heavy-duty work, the Chevy Silverado HD is a safe bet.
