2019 Silverado will offer 6 powertrains

While most people here are obviously focused around the diesel engine, Chevy has just recently announced some additions to the powertrain options in the 2019 model. There are now six different options to choose from including the 3.0L 6 cylinder turbo diesel. There has been no confirmation about power output, but based upon the specs of the other engines, we can assume horsepower and torque will be in the low-mid 300's.

4.3L V6, AFM system, 6-speed automatic. Power: 285 hp, 305 lb-ft
2.7L 4-cylinder turbo, AFM system, 8-speed automatic. Power: 310 hp, 348 lb-ft
3.0L 6-cylinder turbo-diesel, 10-speed automatic. Power: TBA
5.3L V8, AFM system, 6-speed automatic. Power: 355 hp, 383 lb-ft
5.3L V8, DFM system, 8-speed automatic. Power: 355 hp, 383 lb-ft
6.2L V8, DFM system, 10-speed automatic. Power: 420 hp, 460 lb-ft

It helps to see what the Silveado diesel is up against since they almost always get close to power output rival brands are making. Here's a look at what that could be like:

Quote:
GM will compete head-on with Ramís 3.0L EcoDiesel and Fordís 3.0L Power Stroke V-6 engines. For the 2018 model year, the EcoDiesel produces 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque while the Power Stroke is rated up to 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. Both engine platforms have earned EPA fuel economy ratings at or near the 30 mpg mark. The 3.0L Duramax I-6 will therefore need to encroach on these figures if they hope to enter the half ton diesel segment competitively. The midsize Colorado and Canyon diesels, a much lighter platform with a smaller frontal cross section, reaches 30 mpg with the 2.8L Duramax I-4.

So 300 horsepower from the Silverado diesel will be more than enough to trounce its rivals and even better if the power output is around 350. Torque is where it needs to shine too because the Power Stroke set the bar pretty high at 440 lb-ft of torque.

I'm also curious to see how the fuel economy figures will differ in the turbo diesel engine. It would be pretty impressive if they managed to get 400 torque out of a 3.0L engine.

If that's what you're after then also look out for tuning brands that further optimize its towing capacity. However I wouldn't be too concerned, there are specific parameters GM has to meet with this segment regardless.
