Covert Chevy of Hutto – Discover the engine options for a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD near Austin TX
For a one-ton pickup, probably the most important selling point is the engine and its functionality, reliability, and performance. For the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, the two options provided give you choices for your specific needs and applications!
The budget-friendly engine is the 6.6L direct injection gas powered V8. This engine is lighter and more cost effective in unit price than the alternative diesel engine and gives other competing heavy-duty pickups a run for their money. This engine is paired with a 6-speed w/overdrive heavy duty automatic transmission and at peak performance puts out 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. This is only the second year for this engine, and thus far it runs strong with a very promising future!
There is also the option for a 6.6L Duramax V8. 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of the 6.6L Duramax diesel engine, and while this beast got off to a good start, it has also come extremely far in that time, dominating the diesel market multiple times over the past two decades. The 6.6L Duramax has a reputation for clean, reliable power, and the 2021 version puts out 445 horsepower and an incredible 910 lb-ft of torque! To add to this, one of Chevrolet’s biggest playing cards they have held for several years now is the Allison transmission paired with their diesel, which has a reputation for durability, reliability, and longevity like no other. The Allison paired with the 2021 Duramax is an automatic 10-speed, so as this truck flies through the gears you would be lucky to even recognize the shifts. This Duramax in the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD provides for a 36,000lb towing capacity and carries an exhaust brake to help with just such a load.
Whether it’s a daily driver, a weekend camper hauler, toy hauler, or pavement princess, the 3500 HD Silverado rocks the best of any world in the engine department, and you can find one today at Covert Chevy of Hutto in the Austin area today! Also serving Hutto, Round Rock, and Georgetown TX.
