The Silverado’s new Durabed is longer, wider, and more functional than before; and comes with innovative corner steps and side steps to easily access items in the deepest part of the bed near the cab. It is the most spacious bed in its class. Silverado HD lets you tow the heavy loads with ease. It has a maximum towing capability of up to 18,510 lbs.
