If you’re looking for a new Chevy pickup truck in or around Sheridan, Wyoming, it’s important to understand the difference between the Silverado 1500 and Silverado HD. The 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 is a light-duty truck that’s just as effective on your daily commute as it is on the job. The 2021 Chevy Silverado HD is built for heavy lifting and serious power.


Powertrain and performance

The 2021 Silverado 1500 offers six engine options: the standard 4.3-liter V6, a 2.7-liter turbo, a 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel, two 5.3-liter V8 engines, and a 6.2-liter V8 which generates 420 horsepower to go along with 460 lb-ft of torque.

The 2021 Silverado HD has two engine choices. A 6.6-liter V8 generates 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. The Duramax® 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel delivers 445 horsepower to go along with a game-changing 910 lb-ft of torque.



With the Max Trailering Package and a gooseneck configuration, the hard-working 2021 Chevy Silverado 3500HD maxes out at 36,000 pounds of towing strength. For conventional diesel, it can tow 20,000 pounds, and for conventional gas, it can tow up to 16,800 pounds. Hauling 7,442 pounds in your Silverado HD unlocks new possibilities across every part of your life.

The more family-friendly Silverado 1500 still offers significant towing and hauling power. 13,300 pounds of towing strength is more than enough for your next family getaway, and a max payload capacity of 2,280 pounds is perfect for everything from camping trips to hard work weeks.



The work-focused 2021 Silverado HD offers 5 trim levels to the 2021 Silverado 1500’s 8. Apart from minor appearance details and the lack of a Multi-Flex Tailgate, the Silverado HD carries largely similar technology, safety, and convenience features to the Silverado 1500.
