GM to Boost Towing Capacity of its 1500 Diesel Pickups

General Motors wants to boost the towing capacity of its diesel-powered 1500 pickup trucks

This past June we tested the diesel-powered version of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500; a few months later we did the same with the GMC Sierra.

Now, just six months on, GM says it wants to increase the towing capacity of those new diesel models. Really, it’s one more sign of the fevered competition taking place in the full-size truck segment.

Currently, the towing capacity of GM”S pickups equipped with the 3.0L 6-cylinder Duramax engine is 9,300 lb. That powertrain develops 277 hp ad 460 lb-ft and has proven itself highly effective since it debuted. Even better, it puts up an impressive 7.1L/100 km fuel-consumption rating on highway.
