2019 Chevy Silverado 4cyl

When Chevy debuted the new Silverado there was mention of the updated V8s, but nothing about the V6. Well not we know why as the 4.3 V6 is out on certain trims, replaced by a new 2.7 turbo 4cyl with 310hp and 348ft lbs. This engine also has cylinder deactivation and can run on 2cyl.

Plenty of torque in a lightweight package. What's not to like.

That's about what Ford gets with the 2.3 Ecoboost.

I thought there had been the occasional rumors about F-150 mules with 4-bangers...so, if this works for GM, I imagine a similar response wouldn't take much time/effort.

If GM can justify Buick, and if Honda can justify Acura, we can damned well have Mercury back.

I would think that would be a great combination for the hybrid trucks. I can't wait to see what kind of mileage Chevy gets with the turbo 4......I'd be surprised if it's any more than the 2.7 Ecoboost.
This is a loose comparison, but my wife's Escape with the 2.0 AWD is only rated 2 mpg better combined than an F-150 4WD with the 2.7. We'll see I guess.

Re: 2019 Chevy Silverado 4cyl

At first glance I couldn't help but think WTF? But from a power standpoint this 2.7I4 sits right between Ford's 2.3EB and 2.7EB. This could be an awesome engine for those who aren't carrying/towing heavy loads and it would also be an exceptional addition to their mid-size trucks! They only lose about 15HP and 30ftlbs while also eliminating an entire cylinder head, two cams, 8 valves and everything else involved in creating Ford's 2.7EB V6. It'll be interesting to see if Ford follows GM's lead here.

Actually 40 HP and 52 lb-ft torque more with the 350hp and 400 lb-ft in the 2.7 ecoboost (2018 model with 10-speed)... Coupled with the lightweight aluminum body, the Ford should easily outperform the i4 Chevy in performance and still be nearly identical in fuel economy. But yes, the ford engine is more complex and expensive, as usual.

I wasn't aware they had raised the power numbers for 2018. I'm not trying to suggest one engine is superior to the other when in fact they both appear to be positioned differently in their lineups. The GM 2.7 seems to be positioned as a replacement for the base NA-V6 while the Ford 2.7 sits in the same position as GM's 5.3. Both are impressive engines in their own ways!

Re: 2019 Chevy Silverado 4cyl

There were rumors of a 4-cylinder turbo option, but I wasn't expecting one 2.7 liters large. It'll be interesting to see how it feels in terms of refinement. It'll be even more interesting to see if it makes its way to the Colorado and Canyon where it could be more of a threat to the Blue Oval competition.
