In a report coming from Pickuptrucks.com, General Motors is anticipated to offer four updated or all-new gasoline engines for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup line to go with the outstanding 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engine featured in the HD models.
Going off what we know, all of the new gasoline engines will feature direct injection and their blocks will be made of aluminum. PTC also expects GM to continue offer a 5.3-liter V8 engine for the half-ton models, and a twin-turbocharged six-pot capable of competing with Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. What’s more, the HD line will finally see a 6.2-liter V8 that has remained exclusive to the 1500 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks, while the half-ton line will share a 6.0-liter V8 with the HD trucks in return. All transmissions are expected to be in the six-speed variety, but we wouldn’t be surprised if an eight speed showed up either.
