The Silverado Goes Turbo

New 2.7-Liter Turbo Engine

Chevrolet has announced that a new 2.7-liter Turbo engine will be offered on the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado, which will be available at Carter Chevrolet this fall. The engine will replace the outgoing 4.3-liter V6 model.

310 Horsepower

Though the new engine is a four-cylinder, it generates more torque than the outgoing V6โ€”22% more, in fact. Official SAE-certified power ratings for the new 2.7-liter Turbo are 310 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. Even more impressive, this engine is expected to offer greater torque than and comparable payload to competitors like the Ford F-150 XLTโ€™s 3.3-liter V6 and the Ram 1500 Big Hornโ€™s 3.6-liter V6.

Active Fuel Management

One of the key engine technologies for this new powerhouse is the double overhead cam valvetrain, which brings Chevyโ€™s Active Fuel Management to a four-cylinder engine for the first time. It also features continuously variable valve timing and high- and low-lift valve profiles. โ€œThe new 2.7L Turbo is a technological marvel, with our most advanced valvetrain,โ€ explained Tom Sutter, who is the chief engineer for the 2.7-liter Turbo engine. โ€œWith a broad, flat torque curve and quick throttle response, it punches above its weight, delivering surprising performance and efficiency.โ€

New Chevrolet Silverado Is On Its Way

The new turbo engine will be produced at the General Motors Spring Hill facility located in Tennessee. Here at Carter Chevrolet in Okarche, OK, we canโ€™t wait for this new Chevrolet Silverado and its powerful engine to arrive at our dealership.
