800 × 320

The wait is over. The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with the all-new 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel is officially on the lot! 

This half-ton 4x4 delivers an EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway/23 city. Combining the legendary diesel reliability with an SAE-certified 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, the Silverado 3.0L is also capable of towing up to 9,300 pounds and a max payload of 1,870 pounds, meeting the towing needs of about 90 percent of light-duty customers.

This is the first diesel offered in Chevrolet’s light-duty trucks since 1997, and the brand’s first-ever inline-six for full-size, light duty trucks.

The truck draws on innovative technologies to deliver impressive fuel economy and a refined customer experience.

  • The inline-six engine provides an inherently balanced configuration for low noise and vibration characteristics. It features an aluminum block for weight reduction, an 84mm x 90mm bore and stroke, dual-overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder.
  • A new active thermal management system warms up propulsion components more quickly for more efficient operation.
  • The exhaust brake, which is available in tow-haul mode, can provide additional driver confidence when towing, especially when going downhill.
  • The driver-selectable stop/start technology enhances fuel economy by shutting off the engine at stoplights and certain other stop-and-go situations, helping save fuel. The engine automatically restarts when the driver takes his or her foot off the brake.
  • The 3.0L Duramax is exclusively paired with a Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission, featuring smaller gear steps and an overall larger ratio spread to enable peak efficiency. Intelligent controls adjust to the driver’s needs for smooth operation and aggressive response.

This beauty marks Chevrolet’s fourth diesel truck in the available lineup, joining the Colorado, Silverado HD and Silverado Medium Duty.

So what are you waiting for? If you’re shopping for a 2020 Chevy Silverado in Fort Collins, Loveland, Laramie, Cheyenne or the surrounding areas, stop by and check this one out before it’s gone.
