Video Deep Dive: 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD with Chief Engineer Eric Stanczak
Getting Personal with the Duramax L5P 6.6L V-8
The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD and its GMC Sierra HD twin are getting a heart transplant in the form of an all-new Duramax 6.6L turbodiesel V-8. We got a close look at the pickup and its engine in Detroit, and Silverado HD Chief Engineer Eric Stanczak gave us a tour taught us a little more about what makes this powerplant so special.
With segment-leading horsepower and a strong, competitive torque rating, the Silverado HD’s new Duramax helps put Chevy back in the hunt after a few years of bringing up the rear, output-wise. Check out the video above as we chat with Eric about his new baby.
