First and foremost, the new 2017 Chevrolet Silverado Duramax V8 diesel features a number of upgrades. These are largely based around the new high output engine. This new Chevrolet Silverado Duramax engine delivers more power, quieter running and increased efficiency than before. The upgraded Silverado Duramax engine includes upgraded pistons, crankshaft, rods, heads and turbocharger. This further bolsters the reliability and power associated with the Chevrolet Silverado name.
One instantly visible upgrade on the Chevrolet Silverado is the new bonnet scoop. This scoop draws over half of the air through a new patented air intake. In-turn providing a cooler intake temperature, increasing efficiency and further reducing turbo lag. Behind the new diesel engine is the ever reliable Allison transmission. It has also received upgrades in the form of a new torque converter and minor refinements to ensure the transmission handles the power that the new Chevy engine delivers.
