Silverado Towing Features

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was built to work, so it makes sense that it has plenty of features to make towing and hauling cargo easier. When your Silverado is equipped with the Trailering Package, when you tow anything behind your truck, that's when to use the Tow/Haul drive mode selector - and the available Tow/Haul Reminder feature will let you know! When the system detects that a trailer is hooked up to your Silverado, this feature can remind you to engage Tow/Haul mode, which improves acceleration while hauling a heavy load..

  • Optional Max Trailering Package: Available for select trims, this package adds the Handling/Trailering Suspension Package, revised shock tuning, upgraded rear springs, and more.
  • Optional Silverado Tow Mirrors: You can purchase extended view towing mirrors for Chevy Silverado trucks as accessories for safer towing around Oakland County.
