2020 Chevrolet Silverado to Be Available with 3.0-Liter Inline-Six Turbo-Diesel Engine

2020 Chevrolet Silverao

Earlier this summer, Chevy announced that the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado would be available with a diesel engine for the very first time. The new Duramax® 3.0-liter inline-six turbo-diesel engine will achieve best-in-class torque and horsepower and boost the Silverado’s fuel economy.

This engine will be available exclusively on four trims of the 2020 Silverado (the 2019 model is available in eight trims, for reference): LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country. This engine will join a diverse powertrain lineup for the Silverado, which currently includes five options.

Chevy has already released performance specs for the new turbo-diesel engine: 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The Duramax engine will be partnered with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

“From the moment the engine is started, to its idle, acceleration and highway cruising, the 3.0-liter Duramax performance will change perceptions of what a diesel engine can offer in refinement,” remarked Nicola Menarini, director for Diesel Truck Engine Program Execution. “With advanced technologies that draw on global diesel expertise, it’s a no-compromise choice for those who want the capability and driving range of a diesel in a light-duty truck.”

The new turbo-diesel engine boasts a number of other advanced engine technologies, including an all-aluminum construction, Active Thermal Management, a water charge air cooler, variable geometry turbocharging, and more.

The 2020 Silverado is expected to arrive at dealerships, including Quirk Chevrolet of Bangor, later this year.
