Nothing official is yet known about its powertrain, but it will surely have an engine as impressive as its rivals, as we remember that the RAM 1500 TRX will mount a Hellcat engine that will deliver at least 600 horsepower, while the Ford Raptor can be equipped with the new engine of the Ford Mustang GT500 It delivers more than 700 horsepower, so the Silverado’s current 6.2-liter V8 with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque seems to fall short.
