2024 is turning out to be an epic year for the Chevrolet Silverado as the brand plans to expand the availability of the 3.0L LZ0 Duramax engine to the 2024 Silverado 1500 ZR2. It also introduced the “TurboMax” name to its stout L3B engine. The high-output 2.7L turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine (also in the Chevrolet Colorado) was built with work in mind, taking lots of engineering techniques from diesel engines. Durability included. And it’s giving Chevy the confidence to give the Silverado TurboMax an exclusive five-year/100,000-mile factory warranty.
2024 Silverado TurboMax Engine Warranty: Details
The original Silverado TurboMax powertrain warranty was five years/60,000 miles, but now it’s five years/100,000 miles. This change serves as a testament to the engineering and design of the TurboMax engine. It should give prospective customers of the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado even more incentive to purchase it over the competitors. After all, we all want our pricey vehicles to last as long as possible. The added reliability and lifespan of an engine should theoretically boost the truck’s resale value as well.
“As we’ve said before, we engineered TurboMax to deliver the durability and performance expected by our truck customers,” said Kevin Luchansky, assistant chief engineer of the 2.7L engine. “The result continues to turn skeptics into believers with best-in-class 430 lb-ft of torque and 310 HP. The team is proud of this engine, and this warranty extension exudes our confidence.”
The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado TurboMax engine has proven itself as a rugged, dependable engine worthy of the Silverado, which is why the brand is going further with the extension of the engine’s warranty. This means the powertrain warranty lasts 40,000 miles longer than competitors’ offerings and matches the same warranty applied to Duramax-powered Silverado trucks.
Production of the 2024 Silverado 1500 kicks off this month, and TurboMax will be available across the Silverado lineup, from WT to LT trims, to cover an assortment of truck owners’ needs. Alongside its epic performance numbers, customers can opt for an available 9,500-pound Max Tow, which is nothing to scoff at. This means customers should have greater confidence when using the Silverado for work or leisurely activities.
