New 3.0 l Duramax Turbo-Diesel Redefines Expectations
The all-new 3.0 l Duramax I6 turbo-diesel engine adds choice and versatility for full-size truck customers. It is the first-ever I6 turbo-diesel offered in Chevrolet’s full-size light-duty trucks.
Available on LT, RST, LTZ and High Country models, the Duramax is rated at an SAE-certified 206.56 kW (277 hp) and 624 Nm (460 lb ft) of torque delivering 95% of peak torque at just 1,250 rpm.
The 3.0 l Duramax is paired with GM’s 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission, featuring a centrifugal pendulum absorber torque converter that reduces vibrations to improve smoothness, reinforcing its performance, efficiency and refinement. This combination also offers exhaust braking, which uses the diesel engine’s compression to help slow the vehicle, requiring fewer brake applications by the driver when in Tow Haul mode.
A lightweight aluminum block and cylinder head reduce overall mass, and Active Thermal Management enhances efficiency and cold-weather warm-up. Ceramic glow plugs also help with shorter heat-up times and a quicker cold start, meaning the engine block heater is not needed until -30°C.
