Is the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2020 good for towing?
You raise an interesting point, Phil. A lot of people don’t understand that as you approach the towing limit of some vehicles, you also get very close to the legal Gross Combination Mass (GCM) which means you have virtually no payload left.
As for the torque of the 6.2-litre V8 engine, while it may not have quite the low-speed punch of a modern turbo-diesel, with 624Nm of torque, the engine is no lightweight, either. Frankly, it should do the job about as well as anything else out there. I’m not aware of a factory retune for the Silverado, but the engine is shared with plenty of GM and Holden product and there’s a whole industry in hotting those up. Surely somebody can offer you the tune-up you’re looking for. By the way, success on a boat ramp tends to be more about grip than torque.
