For 2014, General Motor’s 6.2-liter V8 will be the powerhouse of the light-duty truck market. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the GMC Sierra will be available with a 6.2-liter V8 produces (an SAE-certified) 420 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 460 lb-ft of torque at 4100 rpm. That is the most power in the light-duty pickup truck class by a notable margin. Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) is paired with continuously variable valve timing for maximum efficiency, according to General Motors.
EPA estimates have yet to be determined for the 6.2-liter V8.
“Power and towing capacity are fundamental capabilities for full-size pickups,” said Jeff Luke, General Motors Executive Chief Engineer for full- and mid-size trucks. “The 2014 Silverado and Sierra deliver unmatched power and towing capability with a host of ingenious driver aids.”

“The 6.2-liter V8 available for Silverado LTZ and High Country and Sierra SLT and Denali models also delivers class-leading maximum available trailering capacity of 12,000 pounds when properly equipped.
The optional Max Trailering Package is available on 2WD and 4WD V-8 crew cab and double cab models and includes:
Trailering package with seven-pin and four-pin connector
Automatic locking rear differential
Heavy-duty 9.75-inch rear axle with 3.73 ratio
