There is a choice of three engines for 2018 Chevrolet Silverado. Basic machine EcoTec3 is a 4.3-liter V6, which lead in fuel economy, but it is seriously lagging behind the others in horsepower; skip it. At the other end is a 6.2-liter V8, which is easily out power everything else, but fuel economy suffered more than we want. Goldilocks setup is 5.3 liter V8, which offer more power than the V6 engine, but the fuel economy better than the larger V8. All machines are available with 4-wheel drive (4WD) instead of the standard setup of 2-wheel-drive (2WD), and standard 6-speed automatic will be replaced with the 8-speed automatic with a 6.2-liter V8 and V8 5.3 liter LTZ. Everything runs on regular unleaded, V6 with a 5.3 liter V8 capable of running on E85 ethanol blend.
