If a carmaker is looking to build a great pickup truck, the company must find the perfect balance between fuel-efficiency and dependability. For Chevrolet, this means introducing a variety of new fuel-saving Silverado engines for consumers—engines that have gone through a variety of improvements and miles of testing to be the best that they can be.
“Silverado is from the family of the most dependable, longest lasting full-size pickups on the road,” said John Fitzpatrick, Silverado marketing manager. “Our latest generation of Small Block engines help customers save money at the pump with engines that have been improved and by real-world experience.”

Next, the slightly more powerful 5.3-liter V8 churns out 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque with a 23 mpg highway, while the most powerful 6.2-liter V8 engine generates a whopping 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, while getting 21 mpg highway.
