The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado stands apart from its competitors by offering a four-cylinder engine. Now that fuel economy numbers are in, we know how efficient this truck will be compared to rivals with V-6 engines.

According to EPA ratings, rear-drive Silverado models with the 2.7-liter turbo-four engine can hit 20/23 mpg city/highway. That city rating makes it comparable to the Ford F-150’s standard 3.3-liter V-6 (19/25 mpg) as well as the Ram 1500’s base 3.6-liter V-6 mild hybrid (20/25 mpg). Despite offering cylinder deactivation, the four-banger’s highway fuel economy lags behind the V-6s. It does, however, have the horsepower and torque advantage at 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque versus 290 hp and 265 lb-ft for the Ford and 305 hp and 269 lb-ft for the Ram. The turbo-four is both less efficient and less powerful than the F-150’s upgrade engine, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 that makes 325 hp and 400 lb-ft and is rated 20/26 mpg in rear-drive trim.

The turbo-four will come standard on Silverado LT and RST trims. It achieves 14 percent more torque and is quicker in the 0-60 run than the 4.3-liter V-6 from the previous model, according to Chevrolet.

Completely redesigned, the Silverado rides on a new platform, adds an available 10-speed automatic transmission, and sheds weight. When equipped with the four-cylinder, it loses 380 pounds from last year’s most comparable model. Other engines in the 2019 Silverado lineup include the 4.3-liter V-6 with 285 hp and 305 lb-ft, a 5.3-liter V-8 with 355 hp and 383 lb-ft, and a 6.2-liter V-8 with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft. A 3.0-liter turbodiesel is also on the way.
