The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado with a new four-cylinder engine will achieve an EPA-estimated 21 mpg combined, or 20 city/23 highway.
The ratings, for rear-wheel-drive models, aren’t as cool as the fuel economy within the redesigned pickup's 5.3-liter V-8 engine, that offers 19 mpg combined (17 city/23 highway), using the EPA's website.
The 2019 Silverado 4×4 models using the four-cylinder engine will achieve 20 mpg combined, or 19 city/22 highway.
The fuel efficiency from the Silverado's 2.7-liter turbo engine, and that is standard on midlevel LT and RST models, is due to line with many other entry-level truck engines from Ford Motor Co. (3.3-liter V-6) and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (3.6-liter V-6 by using a light hybrid system) that offer 22 mpg combined. Those engines, however, provide to 25 mpg highway.
The engine, in line with GM, offers 14 percent more torque and 13 percent better city gas mileage. It is rated at 310 hp and 348 pound-feet of torque as well as being coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
"It's fun to drive everyday — quick from the start, and pulling hard under acceleration," Tim Asoklis, chief engineer with the Silverado, said in a very statement Wednesday.
The four-cylinder engine, as reported, may offer maximum towing capacity of seven,200 pounds as well as a 2,280-pound maximum payload. The payload depends on 600 pounds greater than comparable models from Ford and Ram, although the tow rating depends on 200 pounds less.

The Silverado LT starts at $38,395 when using the four-cylinder engine by using a double cab and standard bed. The exact same RST model starts at $40,295. It's $2,400 more each within the models using a short bed and crew cab, helping to make up most U.S. pickup sales. All pricing includes shipping.
The 2019 Silverado will be offered in eight trims paired with six engine/transmission combinations. Models with V-8 engines are already for sale.
The four-cylinder models are predicted to commence arriving in dealers by the end of 12 months.
It's unclear if thez redesigned GMC Sierra, the Silverado's sibling, will offer you exactly the same gas mileage. Most of the V-8 models during the Sierra offer slightly different fuel efficiency than the Silverado.
