Towing with the ’11 3500HD truck was a dream. It hauled more than 9,000 pounds with ease through the worst Southern California traffic. The in-dash factory trailer brake controller was a welcomed integration into the Chevy’s interior, and the 14-inch disc brakes front and rear (13.97-inch front, 14.17-inch rear) allow this diesel tugger to slow down the biggest of loads. New for 2011, the truck also has an exhaust brake system that works using the variable geometry turbocharger to create backpressure and slow down the vehicle and its load.
