ENGINE OPTIONS

Because both of these reliable trucks fall under the General Motors umbrella, they share the same engine lineup. However, the Silverado LTZ and Sierra SLE have different standard configurations. The 5.3L V8 under the hood of the 2019 Silverado outpaces the Sierra's 2.7L across the board while keeping pace with similar efficiency estimates, as you can see below:
