This powerful engine has an impressive EPA-estimated 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.*
The team that developed both the Duramax® diesel engine and the 2020 Silverado 1500 planned for a truck that is both efficient and powerful. The engine pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission to reach 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, so you’ll have plenty of strength for tough jobs.
The engine is not only the first Silverado 1500 diesel engine, but it’s also the first diesel engine since 1997 to be on a light-duty Chevrolet truck. Plus, it’s also the first inline-six offered in the Silverado 1500 engine lineup. The engine is crafted from durable materials and features a new thermal management system, which heats propulsion components faster.
Having a great fuel economy is not only better for the environment, but it also saves you time and money at the gas station. Take the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 out for a test drive at Rentschler Chevrolet and see the other great features that the truck has to offer.
