Chevrolet Silverado had V6 4.3-liter engine (195-200 horsepower) as well as eight-cylinder 4.8-liter and 5.3-liter engines with a capacity of 270-295 horsepower and a five-speed mechanical transmission or a four-speed automatic transmission. There were rear-wheel drive models and all-wheel drive models.
In 2003, a new version with V8 6-liter engine with a capacity of 345 horsepower appeared in Silverado family, and in 2004, a pickup truck with a hybrid power unit was launched.
Besides the usual pickup trucks, customers were also offered Heavy Duty models with an increased payload. Such Silverado trucks were equipped with eight-cylinder 6.0-liter, 6.6-liter, and 8.1-liter engines with a capacity of 210-360 horsepower. Every year, 600-700 thousand of these pickups were sold in America.
The second generation of Chevrolet Silverado had been manufactured from 2007 until 2013. Created on the GMT900 platform, the automobile had a new design of exterior and interior and a redesigned undercarriage.

Under the hood there are gasoline engines with direct injection and variable valve timing – 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V8. The automobile has only the six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel or all-wheel drives. The fourth generation of the full-size Chevrolet Silverado has been produced in the USA since 2018.
