New 2014 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra Get "Most Powerful Pickup Truck Engine"

New 2014 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra Get "Most Powerful Pickup Truck Engine"

By Jeff Youngs, May 30, 2013
In a statement introducing details about the 2014 GMC Sierra Denali, a luxury version of the redesigned 2014 Sierra full-size pickup truck, General Motors revealed horsepower and torque ratings for the optional Ecotec3 6.2-liter V-8 engine that will be offered in the new 2014 GMC Sierra and its 2014 Chevy Silverado twin beginning in the fall of 2013.

General Motors estimates that the new 6.2-liter V-8 will generate 420 horsepower and 450 lb.-ft. of torque, providing a maximum tow rating of 12,000 pounds when the Sierra and Silverado are properly configured. That means the new 6.2-liter V-8 offers "the most power and torque of any light-duty truck engine," according to General Motors. Official SAE-certified numbers will be available later in the year.

In addition to the 6.2-liter V-8 engine, the new Silverado and Sierra will be available with a new 285-horsepower, 4.3-liter V-6 engine or a new 355-horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8 engine. All three power plants are more powerful than the engines they replace, provide greater towing capacity, and have direct fuel injection and Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation to increase gas mileage. The first of the redesigned 2014 Silverado and 2014 Sierra models goes on sale in June of 2013.
