2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD vs. Its Competition

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The Silverado 2500HD is the workman’s truck compared to the more refined and expensive Sierra 2500HD sibling, though High Country trim blurs that line.

The heavy-duty contenders from Ford and Ram can all tow upwards of 35,000 pounds with diesel duallys, and carry more than 7,000 pounds.

The Silverado has the largest bed sizes, while the Ford F-250 has the most innovative trailering technology.

The Ram 2500 rides the smoothest.
