2020 Chevrolet Silverado Diesel Won’t Make You Pay

By  | 

The diesel-powered Chevrolet Silverado might be late to the party but it is here now.

The 2020 Silverado 1500 diesel model will be offered on the LT, RST, LTZ and High Country trim options. Powering them will be the 3.0 liter Duramax turbodiesel inline-six engine that will be offering about 277hp and 460lb ft of torque. The engine will be mated to a ten-speed automatic transmission.

To make sure the vehicle will be able to handle the cold, Chevrolet fitted the Silverado with a ceramic glow plug so that the heat up times will be reduced.

While diesel engines are usually pricier, this is not the case here as the diesel-powered Chevrolet Silverado price matches the 6.2-liter petrol V8 model making it only $2495 more expensive than the 5.3 liter V8 model.
