The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is one of the most versatile light-duty pickup trucks in its class, offering four gas engines and one turbo-diesel engine.

That’s why John Megel Chevrolet has put together the following comparison to help you decide which is right for you!

One of the many benefits of diesel engines is increased fuel economy. As a light-duty pickup truck, the Silverado 1500 already achieves impressive mpg ratings due to its build. When you couple that with diesel technology, you can cruise right past Gainesville gas stations with a need for fewer fill-ups. Compare mpg ratings below:
The Silverado 1500’s highest towing capacity is achieved by its 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine. This engine, paired with the Double Cab/Standard Bed RST 4×4 configuration, the Max Trailering Package, and 20-inch wheels, can tow up to 13,300 pounds. The Duramax® Turbo-Diesel engine can tow up to 9,500 pounds when paired with the Double Cab/Standard Bed/2WD or Crew Cab/Short Bed/2WD configurations. No matter which engine you choose, the Silverado 1500 makes towing a breeze!
