The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offers an all-new turbo-diesel engine that helps deliver full-size truck capabilities with highway fuel efficiency of some family sedans.
The available all-new 3.0-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine has an SAE-certified 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. This allows the Silverado to tow up to 9.300 lb with a max payload of 1,870 lb. The Silverado 1500 offers that type of power along with an EPA-estimated 33 mpg highway and 23 mpg city in rear-wheel-drive models.*
This marks the first time Chevrolet has offered a diesel engine in one of their light-duty trucks since 1997, and Chevrolet’s first-ever inline-six engine for full-size light duty trucks. Engineers had a clean sheet that allowed the truck to draw on innovative technologies in order to deliver impressive fuel economy.
The new diesel option completes the all-new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 propulsion portfolio. A portfolio that provides a choice of eight trims paired with six engine/transmission combinations.
The 3.0-liter Duramax engine is available on the LT, RST, LTZ and High Country trims. On the High Country and LTZ trims, the 3.0L Diesel is a $2,495 option, and a $3,890 increase over a 2.7-liter Turbo engine for the LT and RST.
The first customer deliveries of the 2020 Silverado 1500 with the new diesel engine are expected to begin this fall. Get yours at Jack Schmitt Chevrolet!
