Yes, we've driven the snot out of the new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 half-ton V-6 and it is impressive. It will be the biggest engine in the segment, with the most torque of any base engine (excluding the Titan, which doesn't have a V-6 base engine) in the class.
We respect General Motors for staying true to its heritage with overhead valve technology, but we have to wonder if this is something GM might regret down the road. Of course, GM also has the opportunity to borrow some cool technology from the likes of Cadillac in the form of the twin turbo 3.6-liter V-6 going into the new ATS and CTS sedans. Naturally, although nothing was announced at the Silverado intro, we'd expect these engines to be more appropriate for something like a Silverado SS or Raptor-fighting Silverado ZR2. Just spitballing here.
In the meantime, horsepower-heavy and "low-torque" dual overhead cam competitors will need to respond in some way. And we can't wait to see what they do. Here's the most up-to-date direct comparison information of all the V-6 engines (and their vital specs) in the half-ton segment.
