2015 Chevrolet Silverado
Having launched the 2014 Chevy Silverado, General Motors/Chevrolet are rumored to update the all-new truck for the 2015 model year.
The updates could consist of:
- 8-speed transmission to replace the 6-speed unit for improved power delivery and fuel economy
- Diesel engine for 1500-level trucks for improved capability
To note, General Motors was rumored to have developed a new 4.5 liter V8 diesel engine in the early to mid 2000s, but the powerplant was never produced.
Although entirely unconfirmed, it is possible that GM could resurrect the engine for the Silverado 1500 to battle newfound competition from Ram, which will offer a diesel engine in its line of Ram 1500 pickup trucks.
