- Truck Year
Just purchased a certified used 2016 quad cab, my first diesel and I'm trying to soak up as much information as I possibly can about it. I traded in my 01 Silverado Z71 5.3 after towing my new 4,000 pound travel trailer up Siskiyou pass. The best the Chevy would do was 40 MPH in 2nd gear with the engine racing at 4,000 RPM. I haven't had the opportunity to tow with the Ecodiesel yet but I'm sure it will do a much better job with it's more torque at half the RPM.
