Chevy Silverado 2.7-Liter Four-Cylinder Engine Test – Hard to Believe
July 28th, 2022
By: John Goreham
“In normal driving, the 2.7 is fantastic. It offers – you won’t believe this – 430 lb-ft of torque. That’s a tremendous amount of torque for an engine this size. And it’s really there. The torque is felt from a very low RPM point. The truck pulls hard and smooth. Even better, the truck can scoot. On a dry summer day, we used 2WD and found the truck wanted to spin the tires if we gave it the boot from a stop. Accelerate up an on-ramp, and the truck feels very fast and very satisfying.
As good as the Silverado is overall, we can’t say enough about this amazing engine. We would recommend it to anyone who plans to buy a truck but doesn’t plan to tow massive loads all the time.”
Why You Want Chevy’s 2.7L Turbo in Your Truck

“When it comes to truck engines, conventional wisdom says the bigger, the better. More cylinders and higher displacement mean more power. So why would Chevy leave behind the old 7.4L and 8.1L big block V8 engines of the past and switch to a tiny 2.7L I-4? Well, it turns out there is a replacement for displacement, and it’s called forced induction. Add a turbocharger or a supercharger to an engine, and it will punch far above what its size might suggest. In fact, the new 2.7L High-Output Turbo provides roughly the same output as the old 8.1L Vortec found in the first-generation Chevy Silverado!”
