2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs. 2500 HD

If you’re shopping for a full-size truck to get you from Omaha to Lincoln, you can’t go wrong with one of the Silverado trucks. Whether you choose a Chevy Silverado 1500 or the Silverado 2500 heavy-duty truck, however, depends on how you plan to use it and what specifications matter most to you. Read on while we explore the differences between these two capable trim levels then drop by Sid Dillon near Fremont to learn more about your favorite.



Every Silverado pickup is equipped with potent powerplants, but there are differences that can impact the way you use yours:

  • Chevy Silverado 1500: Drivers have access to three engine choices, including the 285-hp 4.3L EcoTec3 V6, the 355-hp EcoTec3 V8, and the 420-hp 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 motors.
  • Chevy Silverado 2500 HD: Drivers can choose between the 360-hp 6.0L gasoline engine for up to 380 lb.-ft. of peak torque, or the turbocharged 445-hp 6.6L turbodiesel engine for industry-leading 910 lb.-ft. of peak torque.

Both trucks offer impressive towing capabilities, allowing them to haul trailers full of heavy equipment wherever you need them to go, but there are differences between the two:

  • Chevy Silverado 1500: The Silverado 1500 offers up to 9,400 pounds of traditional towing capability, which can be boosted to as much as 17,700 pounds with the max trailering package installed.
  • Chevy Silverado 2500 HD: The Silverado HD offers 13,000 pounds of conventional towing with the V8 gasoline engine and up to 14,500 pounds with the turbodiesel engine. For those who need fifth wheel capability, they’ll find up to 14,800 pounds of capability with a properly installed hitch.
