The Best Around: Chevy Silverado's 6.2L V-8 Engine Named Top 10 of 2019


Continuing to receive praise from both critics and customers alike, the all-new Chevy Silverado also keeps racking up accomplishments left and right! This time, the Silverado’s 6.2-liter V-8 engine was just named one of WardsAuto’s 2019 10 Best Engines. To determine which engines would make the cut, WardsAuto editors evaluated every single new or significantly updated engine system available in the United States in vehicles with a starting MRSP of less than $64,000. Each engine was then scored upon several different attributes including horsepower, technology, torque, relative competitiveness, noise characteristics, and observed fuel economy. At the end of it all, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado’s impressive 6.2-liter V-8 engine found its way at the top of the list! As Senior Content Director for WardsAuto Drew Winter explains, “General Motors’ thundering 420-horsepower V-8 in the Silverado exemplifies how engineers continue to find ways to improve efficiency without giving up something in return. DFM determines 80 times per second exactly how many cylinders require fuel to meet power demands. And, incredibly, it uses as few as two cylinders to propel the full-size pickup down the highway. 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.”

The mighty, award-winning 6.2-liter V-8 engine is one of the first V-8 engines available with Dynamic Fuel Management, a feature that utilizes 17 different cylinder patterns to give the all-new Silverado the ability to optimize power and efficiency delivery at any speed. Manufactured at GM’s Tonawanda plant based in New York, the 6.2-L V-8 gives the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado a staggering 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque for ultimate performance every time.
