Decisions, decisions

In today’s world, it can get confusing. There are many models of the same vehicle and while they seem to be the same, these truck models do have their differences. Keep reading to find out a few of those differences.

What’s the difference between Chevy 3500 and 4500?

Depending on the model year of these vehicles, there will always be some differences between them. What is surprising is the first difference. While both have the same 6.6 liter Duramax diesel turbo engine, the 3500 version comes with more HP and torque.

Plus, it also has a second engine option which the 4500 does not have. However, the biggest difference between these two vehicles is that the 4500 model is more expensive than the 3500.

To get all the differences between these vehicles, you need to talk to a dealer. Each 4500 will be different depending on their model and trim as well as the year they were made. Older vehicles will not be as tough or as powerful as more modern options.

How much can a Chevy 4500 tow?

The Chevy Express 4500 towing capacity is roughly 9,200 pounds and it has a 3210-pound payload capacity. But all towing capacities are estimates only and they change depending on the type of vehicle, its model year, and trim style.

If you want top towing capacity you may want to check out the Chevy Silverado 3500 as it can tow up to 36,000 pounds. But all of this ability changes depending on the gear ratio Different gear rations do not tow the same amount of weight.

How much horsepower does a Chevy 4500 have?

The Chevy Express 4500 specs are a 4.3 Liter gas 6 cylinder engine. It has the ability to produce 276 HP at 5200 RPM and 398 lb-ft of torque at 3900 RPM. This is not that powerful when compared to a 4500 Silverado.

That vehicle can produce 390 HP and 900 lb-ft of torque with a 6.6 L Duramax turbo diesel V8 engine. The results you get will depend on the type of engine, the year the vehicle and engine were made as well as other important factors.

What is the difference between Chevy 4500 and 5500?

There is very few differences between these two trucks. They both have the
6.6L Duramax L5D V8 that produces 300 HP and 700 lb-ft of torque. The wheel base is longer in the 5500 in most cases with 175 to 235 inches compared to the 4500’s 141 to 243 inches.

​Then the 5500 will weigh up to 3000 pounds more than the 4500 but both come with the regular crew cab trim. Finally, the 5500 is only about $1000 more than the 4500 which means you can get the same performance with less money if you buy the 4500.

Chevy does not make many trucks in the 4500 and the 3500 models. Usually, those designations are left to the Silverado truck model and not the Chevy Express.
