2020 Chevy Silverado

The new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 combines efficiency with proficiency by adding an all-new 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel engine option that delivers big on power and practicality. How big? The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3.0-liter Duramax® is the most fuel-efficient truck of any pickup on the road today with 23 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.*

Because it’s a Chevrolet Silverado, the new Duramax® does not stop at incredible efficiency. It also offers up big capabilities, enabling maximum trailering up to 13,400 pounds** and maximum payload up to 2,250 pounds.***

“We set out to offer light duty truck customers the best of diesel — outstanding fuel economy, great horsepower and responsive torque — plus unexpected levels of refinement,” said Nicola Menarini, director for diesel truck engine program execution. “We leveraged our global diesel expertise to make sure the all-new 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel engine offers the impressive performance and durability our truck customers demand.”

The 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel is the first diesel engine to be offered in a Chevy light-duty truck since 1997. It’s now the fourth diesel engine to be available in the current Chevy truck lineup, which includes the midsize Colorado, the Silverado Medium Duty, and the Silverado HD. Up and down the Chevrolet Truck lineup, you can expect power, capability, and efficiency thanks to expert engineering and Duramax® durability.
