What is a Lifted Truck?

Lifted Silverado | Ashland, KY

Lifted trucks offer head-turning looks and impressive off-roading capabilities. Here’s what you need to know if you’re considering making your Chevrolet Silverado or GMC Sierra into a lifted truck.

Defining a Lifted Truck

A lifted truck boasts a modified suspension system, which adds height to the vehicle. Due to its raised suspension, the truck can ride on larger tires, adding to the vehicle’s overall height. However, this alteration to the suspension can cause other parts of your vehicle to require recalibration or replacement. A truck can also receive a body lift, which does not require additional adjustments.

Some Advantages to Consider

When you lift your truck, you’re giving it more than a striking appearance. In harsh weather, lifted trucks provide better traction and visibility. If you love off-road exploration, your lifted truck will help you traverse the roughest trails with its high ground clearance. And when it’s time to upgrade to a new car, a lifted truck will demand a higher resale value.

In the market for a tough, capable truck that’s perfect for a lift? Choose a Chevrolet Silverado or a GMC Sierra from Don Hall SuperCenter in Ashland, Kentucky. We’ll help match you with the right trim and configuration to fit your budget, lifestyle, and preferences.

If you’re worried about straining the inner tailgate, you won’t have to worry. It can handle up to 375 pounds of weight stacked on it — it’s just as heavy-duty as the rest of the truck! The Multi-Flex Tailgate debuted on the Silverado 1500 for the 2021 model year, so it’s not a surprise that the Chevy Silverado HD is receiving it for 2022.
