2020 Chevrolet Silverado's New, Advanced 3.0-liter Engine
The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado can power past all expectations. Nowhere is this capability to redefine performance better witnessed than the 2020 Silverado's newest feature: its advanced 3.0-liter Duramax inline-six turbo-diesel engine.
Available on the LT, RST, LTZ and High Country trims, this engine propels the new Silverado to class-leading torque and horsepower, while more precisely measuring fuel and conserving energy.
The Duramax Turbo-Diesel on the 2020 Silverado marks the first time Chevy has ever offered an inline-six turbo-diesel on one of its full-size light-duty trucks. The engine architecture works to reduce friction, enhance efficiency, and provide you with a smoother, more refined ride. Although your expectation for diesel engines may be that they are clunky or slow, the 2020 Silverado bucks that trend, showcasing how Chevrolet innovates beyond expectations.
When equipped with the 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine, the 2020 Silverado boasts an impressive 277 horsepower and a stunning 460 lb-ft of torque, and delivers 95 percent of peak torque at just 1,250 rpm.
The 2020 Silverado pairs this power with intelligence. When power is needed to tow, the Silverado offers tow-haul mode, which utilizes an exhaust brake to carefully and precisely slow the vehicle using the engine itself. This makes towing even the heaviest loads more stable, and means drivers can be more confident as they do so. It's an expertly balanced blend of power and smooth operation.
The Duramax is as durable as it is capable. Made from cast aluminum alloy, the engine is built to withstand the high combustion pressures frequent to diesel engines, with iron cylinder liners to ensure stability.
