Over the years, the major brands have been edging each other out with new tow ratings.

In two ratings for the 2022 model year, the 2022 Silverado 3500 HD outperforms the 2022 Ford F-350.

But how is this even possible? What does the Silverado do that the F-350 does not? Let's take a look.

The frame, and the powertrain, increased the overall towing capability of the Silverado 3500HD to 35,500 pounds.

Furthermore, Chevy engineers redesigned the chassis with lighter and stronger steel.

This was essential in allowing the Silverado HD to carry heavier loads without straining the chassis.

Additionally, the engineers improved the suspension and driveline with more durable components.

They enlarged the overall diameter by 30%, making it larger and sturdier.

This has resulted in a more efficient torsional transfer to the axles and a greater reliability rate.

Chevy engineers eventually pulled the trigger in 2021, increasing the towing capability from 35,500 pounds to 36,000 pounds.

When comparing the 2022 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD against the 2022 Ford F-350, it's clear that the 3500 HD comes out on top.
