Only ten years ago, when you were shopping for a pick-up truck with enough power and torque to meet all of your towing and hauling needs, you knew you’d need a V-8 engine. But today, thanks to the 2014 Chevy Silverado’s 4.3L EcoTec3 V-6 engines with advanced engine technologies like direct fuel injection, continuously variable valve timing, and Active Fuel Management, you can get the same power and even better torque than you did with a 4.8L Vortex V-8 in a 2004 Silverado. Plus, you’ll get a significant bump in fuel efficiency, too! Chevy engineers are constantly working to advance efficiency without sacrificing power – we can’t wait to see what they’ll have in store for us in 2024!
