2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD | Eastland, TX

It should come as no surprise that Chevrolet has once again changed the game when it comes to pickup truck. This time it’s the introduction of the revolutionary new 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine. This cutting-edge diesel engine will be available with the 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500. You can get it on LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country models.

The new 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel will put the upcoming Chevy Silverado at the head of its class, earning 277-horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and will achieve drastic improvements in terms of fuel efficiency and overall capability. It is the first time an inline-six turbo-diesel engine will be available in a full-size light-duty truck from Chevrolet. The new 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel will match the available 6.2-liter V8 engine in price.

The Turbo-Diesel will be paired with the 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission from GM, which features a centrifugal pendulum absorber torque converter for reduced vibration and enhanced performance, efficiency, and smoothness of ride. This powertrain combo will also offer exhaust braking, which plays on the diesel engine’s compression system to assist in slowing the truck. This means braking will require the driver to perform fewer brake applications when driving in the helpful Tow/Haul mode.

When the 2020 Silverado 1500 arrives at Fullen Motor Company, you’ll be able to purchase it with this must-have new engine option.

Chevrolet Reveals the Formidable & Fearsome 2020 Silverado HD

2020 Silverado HD | Fullen Motor Company | Eastland, TX

This February, Chevy unveiled its all-new 2020 Silverado HD lineup, and it sure is formidable and fearsome. The 2020 Silverado HD is the strongest, most capable Silverado HD ever created by the automaker and provides unparalleled amounts of power, capability, and daring. Not only did the Silverado HD become more powerful for the 2020 model year, but it also became bigger: it’s longer, wider, and taller than its previous iteration.

Backing up the 2020 Silverado HD’s bold presence on the road is a new standard powertrain. The truck comes equipped with a new standard 6.6-liter V8 engine with direct injection technology, which delivers 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. The new engine improves upon the previous engine, offering a 11 percent jump in horsepower, a 22 percent increase in torque, and an 18 percent higher max towing capacity.

Remarkably, such offerings appear humble when compared to the truck’s second powertrain option: the Duramax 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 engine. This jaw-dropping engine delivers 445 horsepower, 910 lb-ft of torque, and comes mated to a new Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission. Across the board, the 2020 Silverado HD’s diesel drivetrain has been updated, leading it to offer a 52-percent increase in towing capacity compared to the previous model. With this engine, the 2020 Silverado HD is capable of towing up to a whopping 35,500 pounds.
