Performance Specs & Engine Options

Do you value variety and the power of choice? With six engine options under the hood of the 2020 Silverado 1500, you’re sure to find one that’s right for you. The 2020 Silverado 2500 HD, by comparison, only offers two engine choices. But they are mighty.

You’ll notice some engines feature Active Fuel Management™ (AFM) and Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM). Both systems help boost your fuel economy by shutting down cylinders in your truck’s engine while you’re not using them. DFM offers multiple patterns for cylinder shutdown while AFM shuts down half the cylinders at a time. The Silverado 1500 offers ten-, eight-, and six-speed automatic transmissions, while the 2500 HD comes with either a six-speed automatic or Allison® ten-speed automatic transmission.
