When you’re looking to buy a new Chevrolet pickup truck or SUV, performance is one of the key factors you look for. After all, the reason to buy a powerful vehicle to traverse the roads of Lewistown, Bellefonte, and State College is to have the attitude and performance to get where you want to go, when you want to go there.
This includes having the capability to pull a trailer, flatbed, or even a friend out of the mud. Unfortunately, when people try to discover the towing capacity of their newest vehicle, they often see one number with the words “when properly equipped” next to it. That’s why we’re happy to offer a library of articles that break down Chevy towing capacity for a range of vehicles.
Chevy Towing Capacity
Chevy trucks and SUVs are known for their rugged build and reliable performance. They offer superior power in their engine lineups, and the ability to tow plenty of vehicle, trailer, camper, or flatbed weight behind them. Whether you’re going camping, taking a long road trip, or enjoying any other outdoor adventure, they can get you where you need to go.
There are a lot of factors that go into determining towing capacity. It starts with the engine and the power and torque it delivers. The vehicle frame, the towing hitch, the wheelbase, axle ratio, and even the suspension each have a measurable effect.
Each of these factors, combined with varying equipment packages, will change your towing capacity. It can be a headache having to spend extensive research time trying to figure out what the base level engine can tow. That’s why our library is here. Learn about the horsepower, torque, trailer hitches, suspension, and towing packages available on each Chevrolet truck and crossover all in one place!
