The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado's new standard eight-speed automatic transmission, Hydra-Matic 8L90, is about the same size and weight as the six-speed automatic transmission, but will offer a better experience for drivers. With a wider, 7.0 overall gear ratio spread, drivers who are trailering or towing a heavy load can start off more confidently. Plus, the new eight-speed enables numerically lower rear axle ratios, reducing engine rpm on the highway.
Not only will the 8L90 be one of the first in any light-duty pickup when it goes into production sometime during the fourth quarter of 2014, but the 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 is also the most powerful engine offered in the segment! Boasting 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, the engine can also seamlessly transition to four-cylinder operation to improve fuel economy under lighter loads.
