Developed and manufactured by GM, the Silverado is Chevrolet's full-size truck option. Though Chevrolet has been producing trucks since 1918, it was not until 1999 that the model received a formal name, when the Silverado trim-option name was taken as the official model moniker. Torque specifications for the current Silverado line vary across the three engines.

5.3-liter V8

The largest and most powerful Silverado engine, the 5.3-liter V8 is able to produce 335 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm.
