How fast the new Chevy Silverado 2.7 Turbo 4-cylinder from 0-60? You might be surprised!
The 2.7 turbo is a significantly upgraded engine that makes 310 horsepower and 430 lbs-feet of torque. In part, the 2.7-liter was improved by redesigning the engine block and adding a redesigned crank-shaft. There are other updates that make this powertrain more efficient, and smoother. General Motors says it can get up to 22 mpg highway. Oddly, GM opted to bolt this engine to their eight-speed automatic transmission, rather than their ten speed.
Hybrids and diesels may outperform those numbers, GM is banking on this powertrain briningin in the buyers who are looking for a mix of performance and value.
This is a 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Rally 4X4 has a few updates. It’s an more affordable trim with a new nose, trim and 20-inch wheels, covered with Goodyear TrailRunner AT tires. Blacked out badging, decals, steps. This model has an impressive max payload rated at 1,794 lbs. The tow rating has increased quite a bit. Now, 2WD models have a max tow rating of 9,600 lbs, and 4WD models go up to a maximum of 9,000 lbs.
Andre was impressed that the Rally has a four-wheel drive automatic mode. Unfortunately, there is no low-range on this model – but with the automatic system (which acts like an all-wheel drive system) it absolutely flies. After doing a few runs, Andre was able to get a 0 to 60 mph time in the lower 7-second range.
In this video, Andre gets a chance to do real world testing with the Chevy Silverado 2.7 Turbo 4-cylinder, and he takes us for a detaild walkaround as well.
By the way: we are hoping to get the new Chevy Silverado 2.7 Turbo 4-cylinder up to the Ike Gauntlet as soon as possible.
