Comparing Chevrolet's Colorado, Silverado 1500 & Silverado 2500HD Trucks

Starting with the new Chevy Colorado, we find a capable new truck that arrives with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system, an 8-inch diagonal color touch-screen display, a 6-way power-adjustable driver seat, and an EZ Lift & Lower tailgate. Under the hood is a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that mates to a 6-speed automatic transmission and delivers 200 horsepower at 6300 rpm and 191 lb-ft of torque at 4400 rpm.

We invite you to climb into the 6-way power driver seat, take a look at the 3.5" diagonal monochromatic Driver Information Center, and hit the road with 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot capability, 6 airbags, and a 6-speaker audio system. When you're in the cabin of this new truck, you'll have daytime running lamps, electronic traction control, and OnStar® & Chevrolet Connected Services helping you stay safe.

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 arrives with an available Duramax® 3.0L turbo-diesel under the hood that pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission and delivers an EPA-estimated 23/33 MPG (City/Highway), 277 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. Drivers of this new full-size truck are also sure to appreciate the 9,500-lb. maximum towing capability and auto stop/start technology.

When it comes to towing, Chevy is making it easier with up to 15 available camera views, an in-vehicle trailering system, and plenty of trailering tech, including trailer sway control, hill start assist, and auto grade braking. Other features that set the new Chevy 1500 apart from other vehicles in the segment include Electric Parking Brake Hookup Assist, Trailer Theft Alert, and Brake Gain Memory on an integrated trailer brake controller.

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD truck is more powerful than its stablemates, boasting up to 18,500 pounds of max trailering and 910 pound-foot of torque. When you want a 6.6L Duramax Turbo-Diesel V8 engine, you want the new 2500HD. This engine is paired with an Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission and includes an exhaust brake, engine block heater, and capped fuel fill. The Silverado 2500HD lineup also boasts a Durabed, four-wheel drive, side BedStep with black textured step pads for secure footing, and a CornerStep rear bumper to make it easier to get in and out of the pickup bed.
