The redesigned version of the 2021 Chevy Silverado Dually is about to arrive, according to many reports. So, if you are looking for a truck with an excellent towing capacity and a diesel powertrain, this model must be considered. Like the famous Ford Super Duty trucks, Chevrolet also has its own “dually” variant. As we mentioned, thanks to its robust construction, this model offers a best-in-class towing capacity of 35,500 pounds.
As you probably know, Chevrolet does not offer this configuration on all Silverado HD variant. Generally, it’s only available choosing a Silverado 3500HD version.
2021 Chevy Silverado Dually Construction
The upcoming 2021 Chevy Silverado Dually won’t significantly different compared to the predecessor. As you probably read somewhere, this model is based on the famous Silverado 1500 light-duty pickup, and it shares plenty of cues with it. Thanks to that, the new Chevy Silverado Dually is modern and aggressive at the same time. Much of the aggressiveness comes from the grille, which is significantly bigger.
Also, this truck features a long-bed option that boasts a class-leading volume of 83.5 cubic feet. Like on all HD models, the trailer-tow mirrors are standard, as the power-operated tailgate. On top of that, the Silverado 3500 HD model optioned with dual-rear-wheel (“dually”) setup increases the towing capacity by 20 percent.
Cabin Identical as in Silverado 1500
The heavy-duty full-size truck 2021 Chevy Silverado Dually featuring almost identical styling inside as the half-ton Silverado 1500 sibling. If you didn’t know, the whole lineup of HD models offers three to six passenger seats depending on cab configuration. We strongly recommend the roomier crew-cab variant over the double cab.
The cabin is spacious, with a clean layout, offering lots of plastic. Of course, the quality will change going for the higher trims. For example, High Country features heated and ventilated seats, leather upholstery, and a head-up display. Still, the Silverado’s cannot match the tech-rich Ram Heavy Duty models that come with a massive 12-inch infotainment screen. Also, in the same category is Ford Super Duty, which is more amenity-rich, and it comes with massaging seats. Overall, the 2021 Chevy Silverado Dually is a great truck that must be considered.
2021 Chevy Silverado Dually Engine Specs and Towing Capacity
The heavy-duty full-size truck 2021 Chevy Silverado Dually uses the same engine as the predecessor. That means it comes with a 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8 engine that generates 445 horsepower. Also, this truck uses a 10-speed Allison transmission. Interestingly, this engine can produce 910 lb-ft of torque, which is still behind some of the Ford’s and Ram’s models.
However, towing is increased from the worst-in-class 23,100 pounds to a best-in-class with a maximum of 35,500 pounds thanks to dual-rear-wheel (“dually”) setup.
Price and Release Date
The forthcoming Chevy Silverado Dually is the substantial truck available with a very potent powertrain. This model uses a diesel powertrain exclusively.
Some of the websites listed that the price could start at around $51,000, which is less than the top-trim High Country that cost $63,000. The Chevy’s Silverado base pricing is in line with models such as Ram Heavy Duty and Ford Super Duty. One lower-cost alternative is the excellent Nissan Titan XD.
