2016 Chevy Silverado

Originally introduced in 1998, this model is considered as one of the key players in the class of heavy duty trucks. The current generation of this full-size pickup was launched in 2013, but some testing models have been spotted across the country, so it is easy to conclude that GM already work on some modifications, which will probably come next year with 2016 Chevy Silverado. According to the spy photos, this refreshed model shouldn’t come with some major visual changes but, on the other side, it will probably come with new diesel engine, which will replace current Duramax unit.

2016 Chevy Silverado changes

At this point, it is hard to say something more about changes for 2016 Chevy Silverado and we must rely only on rumors and speculations. Testing model has been spotted on the roads and it features pretty much the same look as current model, except slightly modified hood, which now have a large air intake (probably because of new engine that should come). Only some small areas are camouflaged, so it could be also that this mule is used only for new engine tests, while some body modifications will come later. In any case, main change for 2016 Chevy Silverado should be a new diesel engine, which will come as a replacement for current 6.6 liter Duramax that outputs 397 horsepower and 765 lb-ft of max torque. A new-generation engine is expected to come as a response to Ford’s Power Stroke, which came just recently. It is expected that this new unit will bring big improvement both in terms of power and fuel economy. On the other side, current 6.0 liter LY6 Vortec 6000 V8 should remain for some more time. This unit has an output of 360 horses and 380 lb-ft of max torque. Current 6-speed transmission will remain too. Just like current model, 2016 Chevy Silverado will be available in three trim levels – WT, LT and LTZ.
