Are you looking for a pickup truck that offers as much fuel efficiency as it does power? The 2020 Chevy Silverado might be your answer. The newest model of the iconic full-size pickup is available with a brand new 3.0-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine that increases maximum fuel efficiency to an EPA-estimated 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway in models that are equipped with rear-wheel-drive. Four-wheel-drive models are almost equally impressive, with an estimated 23 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.*
This new turbo-diesel engine is an important option because it combines this fuel efficiency with a powerful performance, giving drivers access to a powertrain that delivers the best of both worlds. The 3.0-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine boasts 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with this engine, the 2020 Chevy Silverado can tow up to 9,300 pounds and carry a payload of up to 1,870 pounds.
This is the first time that Chevrolet has offered a diesel engine option in one of its light-duty trucks since 1997. The compelling powertrain is one of many attractive features in the newest Silverado 1500, which also offers advanced driver-assist tools like Adaptive Cruise Control and a new New Advanced Trailering System.
