GM brings back classic name for new, fuel-efficient engine

By Josh Perry, Editor


According to a report from Automotive News, General Motors (GM) is bringing back its classic Tripower name, which it has not used since 1966, for its new four-cylinder engine that features three technologies intended to boost fuel-efficiency.

The 2.7-liter, I4 turbocharged gas engine will debut in the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and, according to reports, will put out 310 horsepower and 348 pound-feet of torque.


The engine will feature cylinder deactivation, which allows it to use only two cylinders during light loads. It also utilizes active thermal management components to optimize the performance of the engine, keeping certain parts cooler and other warmer, to allow it to run at a thermally-efficient temperature range.


Some of the components of the engine include an electric water pump, exhaust manifold integrated into the cylinder head and stop-start technology.
