    2021 Silverado could lift tow ratings for 2.7T and 3.0

    2021 Chevrolet Silverado could lift tow ratings for 2.7T and 3.0
    Three new packages and a long list of detail changes coming, too

    There are a bunch of detail changes coming to the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, and it appears the most useful change is the one we understand the least. GM-Trucks reports that GM's August Consensus Report sent to dealers included a full page of imminent changes for next year's 1500 series lineup. One line read, "2.7L Turbo and 3.0L Diesel Max Towing Enhancements," without explanation. Last year, a GM engineer told Muscle Cars & Trucks that teams were "looking at upgrading some of the materials around (the engine bay) to see if we can maybe raise our tow rating." Speculation on the consensus report is that GM will finally do that for next year.

    Chevy's put out a long list of detail changes to the Silverado 1500 range for 2021, but the brand hasn't revealed next year's tow ratings. According to the 2020 Chevy Trailering Guide, the 2.7-liter turbo four-cylinder maxes out at 6,800 pounds, the 3.0-liter diesel at 9,300 pounds. As for the diesel competition, the Ford F-150 Power Stroke will pull 11,400 pounds, the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel leads the category at 12,560 pounds.

    I think it will get a complete interior Redo with the obligatory small tv screen in there, perhaps 12 inch

    This should have been fixed from the start. Obviously they were rushed to release something and half-assed it. No excuse.

    They did the right thing, launching the SUV's and Pick up trucks in the same year would have been a disaster
