“A major focus of the next-generation Silverado is expanding the range of choices,” said Tim Asoklis, chief engineer for the Silverado 1500. “With all-new engines and a broader model range, there’s a Silverado for everyone, whether you’re buying your first pickup or your tenth.”

Now you can look forward to more than half of the Silverado models boasting the most advanced V8 engines in Chevy’s history. The proven 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter engines will be equipped with industry-first Dynamic Fuel Management featuring 17 different modes of cylinder deactivation so you can get power when you need it and conserve fuel when you don’t. When you have tough jobs to tackle, the Chevrolet Silverado has what it takes to help you handle them without breaking a sweat.

Plus you’ll get innovative and upgraded tech with the all-new 2.7-liter turbo engine that’s replacing the 4.3-liter V6 as the standard on the high-volume Silverado LT and new Silverado RST. This elevated new engine is expected to offer 22 percent more torque, greater fuel efficiency, and a stronger power-to-weight ratio than the current model.

Other great engine options are the tried and true 4.3-liter V6 and 5.3-liter V8 engines that deliver full-size truck capability and performance for the most affordable trucks in the Silverado lineup. And if you need something out of the ordinary, the all-new, Duramax 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbo diesel will be available in early 2019. Get ready for next level power.
