This Silverado Has Lots Of Technological Advances (Video)

The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is offered with an all-new, technologically advanced 2.7L Turbo that expands the range of available engines and builds upon additional choices to help customers find the Silverado that perfectly suits their needs.

Standard on LT and RST trims, the new engine delivers an SAE-certified 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque, for 22 percent more torque than the 4.3L V-6 it replaces.

Developed specifically for truck applications, the new 2.7L Turbo inline four-cylinder engine delivers peak torque from 1,500 to 4,000 rpm.

Faith Based Events

The next-gen Silverado with the 2.7L Turbo delivers 0-60 mph performance in less than seven seconds and weighs 380 pounds less than the current Silverado with the 4.3L V-6.

Compared with competitive full-size trucks, the Silverado 2.7L Turbo is expected to deliver comparable payload capability with greater torque than the 3.3L V-6 in the Ford F-150 XLT and the 3.6L V-6 in the Ram 1500 Big Horn.

The cornerstone of the 2.7L Turbo is an innovative double overhead cam valvetrain that enables:

  • Chevrolet’s first use of Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) on a four-cylinder engine.
  • High- and low-lift valve profiles.
  • Continuously variable valve timing.
  • Dual-volute turbocharger housing for improved throttle response and low-speed torque.
  • Chevrolet’s first application of Active Thermal Management, which uses targeted engine heating and cooling to improve engine performance in hot and cold ambient temperatures.
  • An integrated exhaust manifold that is part of the cylinder head assembly and recovers exhaust heat for faster engine and transmission warmup, with quicker turbo response.
  • Stop/start technology that automatically stops the engine in stop-and-go traffic for fuel efficiency.
  • An electric water pump that eliminates the drag of a conventional, engine-driven pump to enhance efficiency. It also enables continual cabin heating even when the engine is disabled by the stop/start feature.
