A brand new versatile 2.7-liter turbocharged engine, replacing the outgoing 4.3-liter V6, gives a huge boost to the torque, giving the Silverado 1500 similar payload capacity to and higher torque than competitors from Ford and Ram. The new engine is also lighter than the previous one by 380 pounds, adding to its exceptional fuel economy, which is already stellar thanks to the gas-saving turbocharger.

Dynamic Fuel Management

The new Silverado 1500 will also boast Dynamic Fuel Management, an industry-first feature that saves gas by deactivating some cylinders when they aren’t needed for heavy tow and haul loads or rough terrain.

Adaptable

With 17 different modes of cylinder deactivation, the Silverado 1500 effortlessly adapts to driving conditions to give you the smoothest, most powerful ride possible when you need it, and unmatched fuel economy when you don’t. But because the system is torque-based, there’s no difference in the feeling of power between the four-cylinder and eight-cylinder modes.
