The North-American based carmaker Chevrolet has recently released another official video which explains the new and more powerful engines of the fantastic 2019 Silverado, a worthy competitor for other utes from RAM or Ford.
In the United States, the brand-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is offered with no less than six engines and eight trim levels, along with cool features and off-road capabilities. Depending on the variant, you can choose between the entry-level 2.7- to 5.3 liter and 6.2-liter mill. All engines come standard with Dynamic Fuel Management system with no less than 17 modes of cylinder deactivation; this means that it reduces consumption and increases power and torque.
In case you are not that fancy about having gross power and torque, you can choose the entry-level 2.7-liter Turbo mill, which is the official replacer of the 4.3-liter V6 in the Silverado LT. Close to this one, a 3.0-liter Duramax inline six-turbo diesel will be added starting with 2019.
The 4.3-liter V6 equipping the standard Work Truck, Custom or Custom Trail Boss variants come with 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque, while the 5.3-liter V8 fitting the same variants delivers no less than 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. The 2.7-liter Turbo is also powerful, outputting 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque in the LT and RST variants.
The transmissions also differ from one variant to another. The 4.3-liter engine for instance, is equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, while the 5.3-liter mill packs a six-speed or an eight-speed automatic. Finally, the 2.7-liter pot sends its power to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Later on in 2019, the carmaker will also introduce a high-performance ten-speed automatic transmission on an updated 6.2-liter V8 pot. That means around 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, which is quite impressive.
