With the new Duramax® turbo-diesel engine, you can enjoy the best of both worlds in your 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 — mighty towing power and impressive fuel economy.
This engine, a 3.0-liter inline-six, cranks out 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, Silverado diesel models can tow up to 9,300 pounds and handle a payload of up to 1,870 pounds.
The Duramax® turbo-diesel is just as efficient as it is strong. In recent testing by the EPA, two-wheel-drive Silverado diesel models achieved 23 mpg in the city and an outstanding 33 mpg on the highway.* Four-wheel-drive models got 23 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.*
Compare those numbers to the Silverado’s diesel competitor, the Powerstroke-equipped Ford F-150. The 2WD diesel F-150 gets just 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg, and the 4WD model gets only 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
Not only does the Silverado 1500’s diesel engine top the competition, it also delivers better fuel efficiency than many family cars, including the Toyota Camry and Subaru Legacy.
The diesel-equipped 2020 Silverado 1500 will be arriving soon at Amistad Motors, where you can experience its capabilities for yourself with a test drive.
