You can’t deny the aggressive styling of the latest Chevrolet Silverado. The fresh lines are not the only upgrades, and the real treat is under the hood. Ever since the Silverado replaced the C/K trucks in 1999, you couldn’t order the big V8. The most powerful engine were reserved for the Escalade and Yukon Denali. Thankfully those days are behind us, because the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado offers power to the people!
Starting at the top, the brutal 6.2L is now available in all Silverados. It is the base engine in the Stingray and the Camaro SS…and its fast! Last year, the only way to have Corvette power was to order the High Country or the other high-priced models. But now you can walk into your dealer and find a Silverado Trail Boss 6.2 for $43,865. It is rated at 435 horsepower and 469 lb-ft of torque. If that is not enough, the parts department will sell you the supercharger from the Corvette ZR1 (insert smile here).
The 5.3L V8 isn’t going anywhere, except up in fuel mileage. Along with its big brother, they offer an industry first Dynamic Fuel Management. This offers no less than 17 distinct modes of cylinder deactivation. Not only will this respond quicker to changing loads, it prevents uneven wear of the engine when running on less than 8 pistons. It is rated at 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque
If you don’t like new technology, the 4.3L V6 is still making 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. All the cool kids will be opting for two new engines. A 2.7L turbo four offers 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque. Last but not least, a new 3.0L straight six Duramax diesel makes 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The 10-Speed automatic found in the Ford Raptor will be found behind the most powerful engines. That’s because Ford & GM built it together to handle incredible power.
