Chevy Farm Vehicles
Farm work requires a vehicle that’s equal parts tough, sturdy, and reliable, and no one understands that better than Chevy! With a full lineup of trucks and crossovers that includes the iconic Silverado, Colorado, and Suburban, there’s no shortage of the farm work that you can get done behind the wheel of a Chevy. We at Christi Hubler Chevrolet pride ourselves on our robust inventory of Chevy vehicles, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to make an informed decision when picking out your next farm truck or SUV! In that spirit, our team has put together a quick guide outlining some of the key tasks you face on the farm, and which Chevy is best suited to help.
Getting the Most Out of Your Chevy
We’ve organized our guide into three categories–towing, bed size, and cargo capacity. Each Chevy has its own unique features and benefits, but all have rugged capabilities that are well suited for farm work.
Best Farm Truck For Towing
Towing heavy cargo is often essential to farm work, and Chevy trucks are more than up to the challenge! Here’s the maximum towing capacity for the current lineup of Chevy pickups:
- Chevy Colorado: 7,000 lbs
- Chevy Silverado 1500: 13,300 lbs
- Chevy Silverado 2500 HD: 18,500 lbs
- Chevy Silverado 3500 HD: 36,000 lbs
To put those numbers into a bit of perspective, the top-of-the-line towing capacity on the Chevy Silverado HD is capable of hauling a trailer with 480 hay bales (at 75 pounds each) or 180 fully-grown sheep (at 200 pounds each)!
Best Farm Truck For Carrying Cargo
If you don’t want to hook up a trailer to your truck but you still want to carry plenty of tools and cargo around your farm, have no fear! The Chevy Colorado and Silverado come with generous bed sizes in the rear, capable of fitting everything you need without sacrificing space.
Let’s start by examining the maximum payload capacity of each truck:
- Chevy Colorado: 1,560 lbs
- Chevy Silverado 1500: 2,270 lbs
- Chevy Silverado 2500HD: 3,900 lbs
- Chevy Silverado 3500HD: 7,442 lbs
Each Chevy farm truck gives you the option of multiple bed sizes, so you can customize your ride based on your needs around Brownsburg and beyond. Here are the bed lengths for each of the Chevy trucks on the market now:
- Chevy Colorado: 61.70 inches or 74.00 inches
- Chevy Silverado 1500: 69.92 inches, 79.44 inches, or 98.18 inches
- Chevy Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD: 82.25 inches or 98.27 inches
Best Farm Vehicles For Passengers
If you need to transport workers, friends, or family around the farm, consider a Chevy SUV! These powerful full-size vehicles come with roomy interior cabins that can comfortably fit passengers and cargo alongside each other, without ever having to sacrifice room for one or the other. So whether you’re taking the family into town for dinner or transporting a full cabin of farmworkers, you can find a Chevy SUV to meet the task. Here are the cargo capacities for a few of our popular Chevy SUV models:
- Chevy Traverse: 98.2 cubic feet
- Chevy Tahoe: 122.9 cubic feet
- Chevy Equinox: 63.9 cubic feet
- Chevy Trailblazer: 54.4 cubic feet
- Chevy Suburban: 144.7 cubic feet
