Different Types of Engines

Having been Chevy dealers for years, our team can tell you that engines vary along with different factors, including the model type and brand. While that is the case, you will find some engine styles that are common with many manufacturers.

Here are some of the engines you’ll probably come across:

  • Four-Cylinder Engines: These engines are well-known for having great fuel economy while also giving the driver plenty of power for daily driving needs. Some automakers would offer the choice of a V6 engine for cars that came with a standard four-cylinder engine, however, many will now have the option of a turbocharged four-cylinder engine to choose from instead.
  • V6 Engines: These engines are popular for providing vigorous power that enables a vehicle that is appropriately equipped to haul or tow a decent amount of weight. While the V6 engine is more equipped to do the work that a four-cylinder may not, they will not be quite as powerful as the V8 engine style.
  • V8 Engines: Lots of drivers love the hauling and towing power that a V8 engine is known for, along with their smooth acceleration. However, the downside for a V8 engine is that they are not quite as fuel-efficient as many other engine choices.

Chevrolet Models and Their Respective Engines

By now, it is normal for you to wonder what Chevy models have which engines. If you would like to know how the Chevy Equinox is able to get around with a bunch of cargo and filled with passengers, it is due to the peppy turbo four-cylinder 1.5-liter engine that puts out 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque.

If you are interested in a bit more power, we can have you test drive the Chevy Silverado, which comes with a 5.3-liter V8 engine at the base level. This powertrain delivers 355 horsepower along with 383 lb-ft of torque to give you all of the driving power that you need for all your driving adventures.
