2022 Chevy Silverado 2500 Diesel

The Silverado 2500 Duramax Diesel has become a fast favorite in Petal, thanks to its capable performance and versatile design. The Chevy Silverado 2500 line has a towing maximum of 18,510 pounds with up to 910 lb-ft of torque in its turbo-diesel configuration, which means you can make easy work out of the hardest tasks. The Silverado 2500 is also slightly lighter, which results in a slightly more maneuverable and more efficient ride than the 3500.

2022 Chevy Silverado 3500 Diesel

If you need supersized capabilities, the Chevy Silverado 3500 Diesel brings even bigger performance to the Laurel roads. While the Chevy Silverado 3500 diesel and gas options share the same engines as the Silverado 2500, the Silverado 3500 boosts the maximum towing potential to a whopping 36,000 pounds. That’s because the 3500 has a more robust suspension system and higher maximum gross vehicle weight rating than the 2500, so it is better equipped to handle bigger challenges. While this may decrease the fuel economy, the towing advantages can’t be underestimated.
