Silverado 1500 XFE Fuel Economy Package is a Must-Have

Silverado 1500 | Portland, ME

If you’re looking for a vehicle that can do hard work without compromising fuel economy, look no further than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, which is offered with an excellent XFE Fuel Economy package.

The Silverado 1500 XFE Fuel Economy package is offered on 5.3-liter V8 models, bringing its EPA-estimated highway fuel economy up from 23 to 24 mpg and combined fuel economy from 19 to 20 mpg.*

The package is offered only on the Silverado 1500 LT trim with 2WD and a Short Bed and Crew Cab body style. It’s also not available if you opt for any other package, such as the Max Trailering Package, Convenience Package or Z71 Off-Road Package (after all, trailering and off-roading aren’t exactly conducive to fuel efficiency).

Nonetheless, the XFE Fuel Economy Package offers more than just improved mileage. Also included are 18-inch Bright Silver painted wheels, all-season blackwall tires and a premium, soft roll-up tonneau cover.

All of this will set you back $850, but with the extra mpg, you’ll likely make it back long before you replace the truck. The Silverado 1500, after all, is built to last a long time.

2019 Silverado 1500 | Portland, ME

For the first time in almost ten years, a diesel engine will be available on the 2019 Silverado 1500. This noteworthy addition has caused a bigger stir by bringing the Silverado 1500 to the top spot when it comes to best-in-class power, beating out Ford and Ram.

The engine making these waves with its reveal is the new 3.0-liter Duramax inline-6 turbodiesel that operates on a 10-speed automatic transmission with rear- or available all-wheel drive. This configuration pumps out 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque and makes use of turbo technology for rapid on-demand power. The closest competing vehicle, the Ford F-150, falls short by 27 horsepower and 20 lb-ft of torque.

Exact towing specifications as well as fuel economy ratings have not been released, but going off of the numbers revealed so far, it is safe to say that more buzz is in store for the Duramax turbodiesel engine configuration before it goes on sale this summer.

Stop by Quirk Chevrolet of Portland to take the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for a test drive.
