New engine gives Silverado unsurpassed city fuel economy for Corry-area drivers 

The all-new 4.3L EcoTec3 V-6 powering the Chevrolet Silverado  will be the most capable standard V-6 in any full-size pickup truck – leading the segment in city fuel economy and helping Corry-area customers save money through a host of fuel-saving technologies.

The 4.3L V-6 also helps Silverado offer the highest-available payload rating of 2,108 pounds and the highest available towing rating of 7,200 pounds.

EcoTec3 engine technology matches Ram HFE’s 18 mpg city, while the 4×4 Silverado model achieves 17 mpg city, the best of any full-size 4×4 pickup. EPA highway estimates are highly competitive: 22 mpg for the 4×4 version, and 24 mpg for the 2WD model.

“The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado offers capability and efficiency for Corry-area drivers, regardless of trim level or engine choice,” said Jon Andrus of Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “That, plus the world-class technology, makes it the most efficient Silverado ever.”

When the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 arrives at Crotty Chevrolet Buick in Corry, PA it will deliver more power, more torque and improved fuel efficiency, thanks in part to a trio of all-new EcoTec3 engines designed specifically for the needs of full-size truck customers.

The new engine family includes a 4.3L V6, a 5.3L V-8 and a 6.2L V-8.

EcoTec3 engines feature three state-of-the-art technologies – direct injection, cylinder deactivation and continuously variable valve timing – to make the most of power, torque and efficiency across a broad range of operating conditions.

“We believe these are the most technologically advanced engines ever offered in light-duty pickups, and they are 100 percent truck – specifically designed for the way customers use trucks in the real world,” said Jordan Lee, Small Block chief engineer and program manager.

“They have all the power and torque needed to confidently handle the tough jobs, and they seamlessly switch to four-cylinder mode to increase efficiency during light-load driving.

“This is technology no other truck maker can match, and we offer it in every one of our EcoTec3 engines, for every one of our customers,” said Lee. “It is not an extra cost feature. You get our best and most sophisticated technology regardless of trim level.”
