“For more than 100 years, Chevrolet has developed a reputation for building trucks that offer incredible performance, capability and value,” said Brian Sweeney, Chevrolet’s U.S. vice president. “The next-gen Silverado continues that tradition – offering more interior and cargo room, higher towing and payload capabilities and a lower starting price on our highest volume model.”

V8 models first

The first models available when the vehicle bows this fall will be the 5.3-liter V8 equipped with an 8-speed automatic and the 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 with a 10-speed automatic. The V6 and turbo 4-cylinder will be next, while the launch date of the 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder turbodiesel will be announced later, along with its specifications and pricing.
