Three Chevy trucks made the U.S. News & World Report list of “The 11 Best Diesel Pickup Trucks of 2021.” The 2021 Chevy Colorado, Silverado 1500, and the Silverado HD were all chosen for their technology, trailering ability, and powerful diesel performance.
Small But Mighty
The 2021 Chevy Colorado offers a Duramax 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel four-cylinder engine producing 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. This small truck is able to tow up to 7,700 pounds, which makes it a great truck for maneuvering in traffic or heading to the hills.
The 2021 Silverado 1500 is available with a Duramax 3.0-liter Turbo-Diesel delivering 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The Silverado is rated to tow up to 9,500 pounds, which is plenty of power for an independent contractor, farmer, or an outdoor enthusiast.
Heavy Duty Power
The Silverado HD is the most powerful of Chevy’s full-size pickups. The HD’s Duramax 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 offers 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. When paired with the Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission, the HD has a best-in-class towing rating of 36,000 pounds. Chevrolet’s towing package includes 15 camera views and an app that allows you to control aspects of your trailer and set personal profiles from inside the cab of the truck.
