Silverado Torque Specsby Martin Woodfield
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.
The 4.3-liter V6 Silverado engine is capable of 260 pound-feet of torque working at a rate of 2,800 rpm.
Working at 4,600 rpm, the 4.8-liter V8 Silverado engine produces up to 305 pound-feet of torque.
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.
