Posted to YouTube no more than 24 hours ago, this brief video shows a GMT900-based Chevy Silverado Extended Cab pull out its boat (seemingly a 30′), a last-generation Ford F-150, and the boat of the F-150 owner — all at once. According to the video’s description, the F-150 was having a tough time pulling its vessel out of the water, so after a good day of fishing, the Silverado and its 5.3 liter Vortec V8 lent a helping hand, pulling out two water vessels and a truck for a total of three items:
For reference, the 2013 Silverado’s 5.3 liter Vortec with VVT makes 315 horsepower (@5200 RPM) and 335 lb.-ft. of torque (@4000 RPM) while sporting a maximum conventional trailering ratting of 9,100 pounds (when equipped with the 3.42 rear axle).
The GM Authority Take
It’s always nice to see a Chevy lend a helping hand… especially when it’s a Ford. Right? In all seriousness, that’s some impressive pulling by the Chevy — keeping in mind that the F-150 was operational and helping the caravan.
