Superior in its Exterior& Performance
Silverado’s exterior design blends strong Chevy truck heritage with a refined, modern aesthetic look. The new design is more muscular, more functional and more aerodynamic. A twin-port grille, full-width bumper and dual power dome hood create a strong presence, which is carried through in sculpted body sides and fender flares. The new Silverado design is about much more than just looks, however. The new front end is engineered to improve sealing for more efficient cooling, while the roof and tailgate spoiler were shaped in the wind tunnel to smooth airflow over the truck for reduced drag. New inlaid doors, which fit into recesses in the bodyside, reduce wind noise for a quieter cab.

The engines also use a compact overhead-valve design and weight-saving components such as aluminum blocks and cylinder heads, to reduce mass, for additional energy savings.

The increased power, torque and efficiency of the new EcoTec3 engine family resulted from an unprecedented level of computer analysis, including extensive computational flow dynamics, to optimize the burning of air and fuel in the cylinders. More than 10 million of hours of computational analysis went into the engine program. More than 6 million hours of analysis went into the advanced combustion system alone.
While the most popular engine, Silverado’s all-aluminum EcoTec 5.3L V-8 Engine with 355-horsepower, senses your load, seamlessly switching between V-8 power and four-cylinder for more fuel economy as demands change.
