Silverado throttles up with new engines

With eight trims paired with six engine/transmission combinations, even more customers will find a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 tailored to their needs for performance, efficiency, technology and value.

Over half of the 2019 models will be equipped with the most advanced V-8s in the brand's history: updated versions of Chevrolet's proven 5.3L and 6.2L engines equipped with Dynamic Fuel Management featuring 17 different modes of cylinder deactivation.

An all-new, advanced 2.7L Turbo engine that replaces the 4.3L V-6 as the standard engine on the high-volume Silverado LT and new Silverado RST, is expected to offer 22 percent more torque, greater fuel efficiency and a stronger power-to-weight ratio than the current model.

Proven 4.3L V-6 and 5.3L V-8 engines deliver full-size truck capability and performance for the most affordable trucks in the Silverado lineup.

An all-new Duramax 3.0L inline-six turbo diesel will be available in early 2019.
For customers seeking full-size truck capability and the highest level of affordability, the Work Truck (WT), Custom and Custom Trail Boss trims offer two proven engine and transmission combinations. Standard is the 4.3L V-6 with Active Fuel Management and a six-speed automatic transmission (SAE-certified at 285 hp/305 lb-ft). A 5.3L V-8 with Active Fuel Management and a six-speed automatic transmission (SAE-certified at 355 hp/383 lb-ft) is also available.

For customers shopping in the heart of the truck market, the LT, RST and LT Trail Boss trims balance technology, efficiency and performance. Standard for LT and RST is the all-new 2.7L Turbo with Active Fuel Management and stop/start technology, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission (SAE-certified at 310 hp/348 lb-ft). Standard on LT Trail Boss and available on LT and RST is the updated 5.3L V-8 with an eight-speed automatic transmission (SAE certified at 355 hp/383 lb-ft). The all-new Duramax 3.0L Turbo-Diesel with stop/start technology, paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission will be available on LT and RST in early 2019.

For customers shopping for a premium truck, the LTZ and High Country trims offer the highest levels of performance and technology, including an updated 5.3L V-8 with Dynamic Fuel Management and stop/start technology as standard, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission (SAE certified at 355 hp/383 lb-ft).
