With a lineup as extensive as the one you can find at Sharon Chevrolet, it can be daunting to dig in and discover which Chevrolet engines are at the top of their game. As such, we at Sharon Chevrolet found the most powerful and efficient Chevrolet engines on the market, so you don’t have to.
Most powerful Chevrolet engines
In terms of horsepower, the most powerful Chevrolet engine belongs to the 2019 Corvette ZR1. Boasting a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, the Corvette ZR1 delivers 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque. It’s not just the most powerful Chevrolet engine currently — it’s also the most powerful engine ever offered for a production Corvette.
Horsepower is all well and good, but when you’ve got something heavy to haul or tow, torque is the number that matters. Here, it’s the 2020 Silverado HD 3500 that wins out. This truck’s Duramax® 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 reaches a whopping 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.
Most fuel-efficient Chevrolet engines
If your main objective is to save money fuel, you’ll love the 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine in the 2020 Spark. It gets 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, making it an incredibly fuel-efficient engine.* Not far behind is the 2020 Malibu with its 1.5-liter engine, which gets up to 36 mpg on the highway.**
Among pickup trucks, we’d be remiss not to mention the Duramax® 3.0-liter Turbo-Diesel in the 2020 Silverado 1500. This engine achieves 33 mpg on the highway, while still giving the truck a towing capacity of up to 9,300 pounds when properly equipped.***
