The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado’s 6.2-liter V8 made it onto the 2019 Wards 10 Best Engines List thanks in large part to its innovative Dynamic Fuel Management technology. Chevrolet’s industry-leading DFM enables the high-powered V8 to optimize efficiency by using as few as two cylinders when necessary.
“General Motors’ thundering 420-horsepower V8 in the Silverado exemplifies how engineers continue to find ways to improve efficiency without giving up something in return,” writes WardsAuto Senior Content Director Drew Winter. “The truly amazing part is the cylinder deactivation is imperceptible, so seamless that the only thing the driver notices is fewer stops at the pump.”
Even for its cylinder-deactivation tech, the Silverado’s 6.2-liter V8 is a hit with drivers who have big needs thanks to its output of 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Adding further to its efficiency is auto stop/start technology and a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission. The 6.2-liter V8 is one of several unique engines offered with the 2019 Silverado, meaning that you’ll be able to determine what fits your needs best.
