2023 Chevy Silverado 1500 to Recieve Boost in Engine Power

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.”

The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado Has More Power, Comfort, and Technologies

The Chevrolet Colorado is doing great things for 2023. This midsize pickup recently made its debut and displays various shapes both inside and out, which is especially important as it faces off with other competitors in its segment like Ford, Toyota, and GMC. Here are all of the things to look forward to with the new Colorado.

One Engine and Three Outputs

Shoppers who are looking to purchase the latest Colorado when it goes on sale during the first half of 2023 will have five different trim levels to choose from: The base Work Truck (WT), Colorado LT, Trail Boss, Z71, and ZR2.

All of these trucks will share the same engine, a 2.4-liter turbocharged 14 motor matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Despite this, there are three different outputs depending on the trim. The base 2.7L Turbo produces an output of 237 hp with 259 lb-ft of torque, the 2.7L Turbo Plus produces 310 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque, and the 2.7L Turbo High-Output 310 with 430 lb-ft of torque.

Additionally, rear-wheel-drive (RWD) is standard on WT and LT trims, while the Z71 and ZR2 models come with four-wheel-drive (4WD).

Beautified Interior

The Colorado’s cabin has received an update from the humpty dumpty box that it previously had, to one that is fresh and happening. According to Chevrolet, there are four new interior schemes, which on some trims, involve wrapped and stitched knee pads on the doors and center console. Other models receive a clean contrast stitching with different choices of cloth and leather upholstery. Then, for the first time, the Colorado truck will offer a sunroof.

One of the main highlights of this vehicle is the standard 11.3-inch central touchscreen, using an updated version of the brand’s user-friendly infotainment software. There are also configurable pages, an off-road-specific display and built-in Google apps for maps, music, and more. Plus, all of these Colorado pickups feature an 8-inch digital gauge cluster.

The touchscreen involves several camera viewing options, with some aiding in hooking up a trailer and towing, which also works in tandem with the brand’s smartphone trailering app. The Z71 and ZR2 have an underbody camera, allowing drivers to see large obstacles.

For driver-assist technologies, the 2022 pickup comes with automatic emergency braking, forward-collision warning, front pedestrian braking, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights, and a distance alert. 

Optional features amount to a 360-degree camera system, adaptive cruise control, rear pedestrian alert, rear cross-traffic braking, and blind-spot monitoring, which can be added to every trim level, including the entry-level WT.

Arrive Date

The 2023 Chevy Colorado will be assembled at General Motors’ factory in Wentzville, Missouri. It’s expected to start its production in early 2023, with the automaker saying that it will reveal its final pricing and fuel economy data closer to that time.
