Having a pickup-truck is not all about work.
And, when the work is done, those three extra seats in the rear may be filled with family and friends for a long trip. The 2013 Silverado 3500 Crew cab is the Chevy 1 ton truck and it’s all about payload, towing, and getting up to 6 passengers inside the cabin.
The long bed allows a convenient install for the fifth-wheel inside and increases the towing capacity up to 7892 kg (17400 pounds), while the conventional towing is up to 5897 kg (13000 pounds).
The Crew cab 3500 HD was available as a 2WD or 4WD and it was built to put construction equipment on a trailer and deliver it right in the middle of the construction site. On the outside, the noticeable hood with two domes along is a main feature of the front design. The multiple headlight unit is made with projector lighting.
Chevrolet claims that the most demanded version is the diesel, even if it was about 10% more expensive over the gasoline sticker price vehicle. The 6.6-liter Duramax unit comes with enough torque to pull a house and, thanks to the engine braking system, it saves the brake pads. It had two options for the final drive: a 4.10:1 and a 3.73:1 ratio. The latter was used for increased towing abilities.
