    2019 Chevy Silverado 3.0-liter diesel rated at 277 hp and 460 lb-ft

    https://www.autoblog.com/2019/03/26/...l-power-price/

    According to a Jalopnik report, the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado turbodiesel will have 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. The information comes from a leaked document that was anonymously forward to Jalopnik. A Chevrolet spokesperson has confirmed to Autoblog that "the numbers are accurate."

    The Ford F-150 with the 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel has a claimed 250 horsepower at 3,250 rpm and 440 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,750 rpm. As of right now, the Ram 1500 does not yet have a diesel option available (we expect one soon), and Nissan only offers a V8 turbodiesel on the Titan XD. Thus, the Silverado turbodiesel will be the most powerful light-duty diesel on the market when it's formally introduced.

    For further comparison, the Chevrolet Colorado's 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel makes 181 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and 369 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm. Ram's last 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine spun out 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft. There's a good chance Ram will boost its diesel V6 a bit when it's reintroduced, which could happen later this year.

    Jalopnik's report further suggests that the 3.0-liter turbodiesel will cost $2,495 more than the 5.3-liter V8 and $3,890 more than the 2.7-liter turbocharged four. That's the same surcharge Chevy asks for its 6.2-liter V8 engine.

    A leaked document. lol

    These are not top secret specs and numbers.

    The 3.0 diesel is a $2,495 option and includes the 10 speed auto. It's not $3,890 more than the 2.7L turbo.

    I have one ordered that should be built in mid May.

    DOn't know about configurations but from the article:

    The 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel is available on the Chevrolet Silverado LT, RST, LTZ and High Country trims, as well as all GMC Sierra trims except the base Sierra trim.

    From Car and Driver:

    There's still more info we don't know, including the Silverado diesel's towing capacity and its EPA fuel-economy numbers. To beat the F-150 in those respects, it will need to be able to tow more than 11,400 pounds and hit 30 mpg on the highway (those max ratings are for regular-cab, two-wheel-drive versions of the F-150 diesel, a configuration that Chevrolet doesn't offer).

    Also, did Ram quietly discontinue the EcoDiesel or is it just a 2019 thing?

    DOn't know about configurations but from the article:
    6.2 is a $10,000 option, pushing $12,000,because if you want optional gears, Fuck You! You get a $2,000 forced, wheel option.

    Along with EVERY CURRENT DIESEL.

    It's just not a reliable platform anymore.

    Currently, it's $850 if you want 3.42 axle ratio with the 6.2. The only requirement is max trailering package($850) which is the only way you can get 3.42. 20" wheels are not required.

    Nothing like going into limp mode while pulling 15Klbs because you forgot to check your DEF level

    Thankfully never had mine go into limp mode, but I was concerned one time when I was out of town and had it threaten to even after refilling DEF.

    If you tow heavy it goes quick!

    There isn’t a single manufacturer who’s figured out how to make it work reliably. Hell even off road equipment such as tractors have this shit now. Horrible! That’s the reason I bought a 2013 Kubota, made to run on ULSD, but no EGR/DPF aids.

    If I was to do it all over again I would have bought a mid-2000's Silverado 2500.

    Literally have never had a problem with any of the DEF systems on any of my diesels including an LML with over 200k miles.

    DEF wasn't really an issue on mine, it was the DPF clogging up around 130k miles and trying to go into regen every 100 miles.
