Performance has always been a focus of Silverado. With the available 367-hp Vortec MAX V8 and MAX Trailering Pack, this heavyweight can tow up to 10,500 pounds of just about whatever toy you want1. Whether you are taking your aluminum boat to your favorite fishing hole or your 27 ft offshore to this summer's poker run, this half-ton crew cab can handle it.
In addition to its unmatched crew cab towing capacity1,Chevy offers the available GM-exclusive automatic locking rear differential2. When rear wheel slippage is detected at lower speeds, the rear locker automatically kicks in, sending power to the wheel with traction, providing gripping power to help keep you moving. Slippery boat ramps, you've met your match! Watch the demo video to find out how the "locker" enhances traction to help get the Silverado out of slippery situations.
THIS TRUCK WILL TOW ALL OF YOUR TOYS
For 90 years, Chevy has worked to anticipate our needs and surpass our expectations. Today, not only do our trucks need to work hard in all conditions, they also need to be efficient and safe enough for loved ones. With the 2008 Silverado, Chevy has delivered in spades.
As outdoorsmen, we all have a vested interest in protecting our playground. So while our trucks need to work, they don't have to be so hard on the environment. Chevy offers alternative fuel solutions, including two FlexFuel engines in the 2008 Silverado. These engines can run on gasoline or E85 ethanol-a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline3. E85 is a cleaner-burning, mostly renewable fuel source that can help reduce our reliance on petroleum. And coming this fall, Chevy will even begin to offer a full-size Silverado Hybrid version4.
