SMALL ENGINE, BIG PUNCH
INTRODUCING THE 2.7L TURBO
High tech, highly capable, low fuel consumption. The all-new 2.7L Turbo 4-cylinder engine is the modern powertrain designed specifically for light duty pickup trucks. Available in the next generation 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Custom, LT, and RST and the all-new 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 base & SLE.
This little engine packs a big punch.
- 310 horsepower @ 5,600 RPM
- 348 lb-ft of torque @ 1,500 RPM
This is no ordinary 4-cylinder engine as it is packed with technology like Active Fuel Management, Direct Injection, Auto Start/Stop, Active Thermal Management, and 3-phase Camshaft.
The 2.7L Turbo engine is exclusively paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
A lighter engine means more towing and payload.
- Up to 6,900 lbs towing
- Up to 2,280 lbs payload
More towing and payload capacity than what the average truck buyer needs.
With technology such as Direct Injection and Cylinder Deactivation, the 2.7L Turbo engine provides better fuel efficiency than the Canyon/Colorado V6.
- 10.8 L/100km Highway
- 12.5 L/100km City
- 11.7 L/100km Combined
The above fuel economy figures are for 4WD equipped Chevrolet Silverado 1500 & GMC Sierra 1500 trucks.
With a new 3-phase Camshaft, the 2.7L Turbo 4-cylinder engine can provide excellent fuel economy as well as good performance.
- 0 - 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds
The 2.7L Turbo I4 is a full second faster than the 4.3L V6 and almost a second and a half faster than the old 4.8L Vortec V8.
The 2.7L Turbo 4-cylinder engine is packed with tried and tested as well as new technology to provide excellent fuel economy and good performance.
Variable Valve Timing
Adjusts the timing of valve lift to improve performance, fuel economy or emissions.
Fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber for better mixture of the fuel with the air. This improves emissions as well as fuel economy and engine performance.
Active Fuel Management
Initially developed by General Motors for the 5.3L V8, Active Fuel Management (AFM) deactivates half of the cylinders to improve fuel economy under light duty application.
Grooves in the Intake camshaft allow for the camshaft to slide depending on engine demand.
- "High Lift" mode for performance.
- "Low Lift" mode for normal driving.
- "AFM" mode for maximum fuel efficiency.
