If you drive a pickup, you need it to have a strong, capable engine. For the 2019 model year, the Silverado engine lineup is getting even more impressive and even bigger. You will have six engine and transmission combinations to choose from.
“A major focus of the next-generation Silverado is expanding the range of choices,” said Tim Asoklis, chief engineer for the Silverado 1500. “With all-new engines and a broader model range, there’s a Silverado for everyone, whether you’re buying your first pickup or your tenth.”
More than half of the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 models will be equipped with an advanced V8 engine. There will be two updated versions to choose from: the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter. These engines will come with an industry-first Dynamic Fuel Management system that includes 17 modes of cylinder deactivation.
There will also be an all-new 2.7-liter turbocharged engine that will replace the current 4.3-liter V6. The new engine is expected to deliver 22% more torque and greater fuel economy than the current model.
In early 2019, you will also have the option of an all-new Duramax 3.0-liter inline-six turbo diesel engine. This engine will be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and will come with stop/start technology.

Chevrolet has always been a cornerstone of the pickup truck industry with the help of the capable and popular Silverado family of trucks. At the brand’s Centennial Truck Event celebrating over 100 years of Chevrolet trucks, Chevy unveiled a next-generation Silverado model that’s set to debut as a 2019 model year.
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 features an all-new design, making room for a brand-new platform, fine-tuned power and capability, and an interior made to raise the standard for pickup trucks everywhere. In order to build it, Chevrolet surveyed over 7,000 longtime fans to see what they wanted in a pickup. This design was truly developed by Chevy fans, for Chevy fans. The high-strength steel body is even crafted from a higher-grade alloy, further improving the Silverado’s toughness in comparison to competitors.
Chevrolet will also be expanding the lineup for the next-generation Silverado model, providing even more trim levels and features for pickup truck enthusiasts, including the new Silverado LT Trailboss, which features off-roading equipment and a suspension lift. The new 2019 Silverado 1500 will make its world debut in January at the North American International Auto Show, at which point drivers will get a better look at the next-gen models’ design.
