2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country

Even though the 2019 Silverado 1500 debuted at the Detroit auto show earlier this year, Chevrolet failed to disclose power ratings for the model—until now.

The brand revealed that consumers will have four gasoline engine options and one available diesel engine for the new Silverado 1500.

4.3-liter V6

This engine carries over from the previous model year along with a six-speed automatic transmission. It yields 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. This option comes standard on the following trims: Work Truck, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss.

5.3-liter V8

Opt for this engine version for a bit more potency, at 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Like the 4.3-liter V6, this engine comes paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Work Truck, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss trims have this engine option as an available upgrade.

Turbocharged 2.7-liter Inline-Four

Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, this turbocharged engine churns out 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque. The LT and RST trims incorporate this powertrain, although the 5.3-liter V8 is available for those who wish to upgrade.

6.2-liter V8

The most intimidating of the four engine options is the 6.2-liter V8 that dishes out 420 horsepower. It can be found on the LTZ and High Country top-of-the-line trims, and comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

3.0-liter six-cylinder Diesel

Chevy also disclosed that the 2019 Silverado will be available with an optional 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine when consumers pick the 10-speed automatic transmission. Although it has yet to reveal power ratings for this engine, we do know that it will be an option on the LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country trims.

We anticipate more details in the days ahead about the 2019 Silverado 1500, as we wait for the power and torque specs for the diesel option.
