That trailer with 2 ATVs weighs in around 2200 lbs. & the Nitro pulls it & stops it easily. Even pulled it thru the snow easily this winter!
I'll be pulling a 4k lb. boat with the Nitro pretty soon. That should be a test!
Yeah It's a 4.7L V8, I am sure the towing cap is higher than the Nitro, But It Drinks gas when towing, and The problem I have is stopping. I'm not sure why, but it seams like Chevy put too small of brakes on the 01' Silverado 1500's, because My Boat isn't that heavy, but the truck doesn't stop well when towing...Sure. I'd bet there will be several of us towing boats soon so there will be some talk online about it.
So what is the tow capacity of the 1500? I assume it's a V8? Seems like it would be a bit higher than the Nitro.
