Chevrolet has announced that its half-ton Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss will finally be available with the 3.0-liter Duramax® turbodiesel six-cylinder. Producing 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, this is a workhorse of an engine that delivers exceptional capability as well as strong fuel economy.
The Duramax® engine was one of the most highly requested engines for the popular four-wheel-drive Trail Boss model, which is a version of the Silverado that focuses on off-road performance. Trucks with the Trail Boss package already get Goodyear® Wrangler DuraTrac® all-terrain tires, off-road-tuned shocks, a two-inch suspension lift kit, a locking differential, skid plates, and red tow hooks.
Despite all of these performance-enhancing goodies, the Trail Boss gets an impressive 25 miles per gallon combined in four-wheel-drive applications, and up to 29 miles per gallon on the highway. 
General Motors plans to eliminate fuel-burning engines by 2035, but in the meantime, the Duramax® engine provides a nice option to customers seeking uncompromised capability that can still save them a buck at the gas station.
It’s one thing to read about the Duramax® engine, but it’s another thing entirely to actually feel all of that torque. Visit Quirk Chevrolet of Portland, Maine, to get behind the wheel of the new 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss!
