The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado with a new four-cylinder engine will achieve an EPA-estimated 21 mpg combined, or 20 city/23 highway.
The ratings, for rear-wheel-drive models, are not much better than the fuel economy of the redesigned pickup's 5.3-liter V-8 engine, which offers 19 mpg combined (17 city/23 highway), according to the EPA's website.
The 2019 Silverado 4×4 models with the four-cylinder engine will achieve 20 mpg combined, or 19 city/22 highway.
The fuel efficiency of the Silverado's 2.7-liter turbo engine, which is standard on midlevel LT and RST models, is in line with other entry-level truck engines from Ford Motor Co. (3.3-liter V-6) and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (3.6-liter V-6 with a light hybrid system) that offer 22 mpg combined. Those engines, however, offer up to 25 mpg highway.
