Chevrolet pares down four-cylinder availability in the Silverado range

According to a recent report, buyers will find it difficult to find a new Chevrolet Silverado powered by a 2.7-liter four-cylinder. While the engine is typically offered in five trim levels, it is currently only available in two.
The avid website GM Authority reported that the first Turbo-Four ever offered in a Silverado is temporarily unavailable for most trim levels it can normally get into. Chevrolet offers nine basic variants with the names Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, LT 2FL, LT Trail Boss, RST, LTZ and High Country. Work Truck, Custom, LT 2FL, LT and RST should be available with the 2.7 liter, but buyers can only get it in the Custom and LT 2FL models.
General Motors, like all of its peers and peers, has been hit hard by the ongoing chip shortage and has been forced to ship Chevrolet and GMC trucks without cylinder deactivation technology to avoid costly delays, but reducing four-cylinder availability is not part of that strategy. While nothing is official, GM Authority believes the company is changing its fairing structure to prioritize the more popular build configuration and streamline its production process. We have contacted Chevrolet for more information on the report and will update this story as we learn more.
What is seemingly certain is that this is a temporary move and that the four-cylinder engine will again be available in a wide variety of trim levels in the not too distant future. Not much changes for the 2022 model year, though the LT Trail Boss trim gets a 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder turbo diesel, but more significant updates (including the availability of semi-automatic Super Cruise technology and a new, off-road-oriented trim called ZR2) are on their way for 2023.
