Well, to the shock of very few of you out there, the truck with the much bigger engine is more powerful. Both are strong in their own right, but it’s going to be hard to keep up with the massive V8 the 2500HD is hiding under the hood. As you can see, though, the 1500 is no slouch and some of the high trim levels can increase their towing capacity to around 9,500lbs. Both models come with a number of different trim levels and configurations so you’ll have to do a bit of work in mixing and matching until you find the ideal Silverado for you and your needs.
