The 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 will be receiving an upgrade to its turbodiesel engine. The half-ton pickup already offers impressive capability, but this upgrade will provide owners with more power to complete their tasks. As of late, Chevrolet has been busy working on its EV lineup. With new electric vehicles coming like the Chevy Silverado EV, Chevy Colorado EV, and Chevy Equinox EV, it’s nice to see the automaker also improving its combustion engine lineup. We’ll take a look at the new performance metrics of the upgraded diesel engine and see what consumers can expect.
2023 Chevy Silverado Turbodiesel Engine Receives Upgrade
The 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 will now arrive with a turbocharged 3.0L inline-six Duramax diesel engine that’s capable of 305 horsepower and 495lb-ft of torque. This is close to a 10-percent boost in performance from the 277 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque that was previously offered. These improvements will help those owners who opt for the Duramax turbodiesel engine perform at an even higher level. The new diesel engine will still come paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Those interested in the 2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 will also have the option of selecting from a turbocharged 2.7L, a 5.3L V8, and a 6.2L V8 engine.
Chevrolet has improved the turbocharged 3.0L Duramax turbodiesel engine by upgrading several of its components. These include new pistons, an improved combustion bowl, and new fuel injectors. All these additions have helped provide the diesel engine with higher performance and better capability. The new Duramax turbodiesel engine will come available with the Custom Trail Boss, LT, LT Trail Boss, RST, LTZ, and High Country trims. About the new turbodiesel engine, Chevrolet’s assistant chief engineer John Barta said,
“These improvements to the popular 3.0-liter Duramax diesel build on the already advanced design of the first-generation engine,” says John Barta. “We often hear customers express their satisfaction with the outstanding fuel economy and smooth, quiet power of the current diesel engine, so we can’t wait for them to experience this advanced engine, made possible by the continued design evolution and advances in engine technologies.”
