The 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 debuts an all-new version of the Duramax 6600 turbo-diesel V8 engine as an option. When combined with the optional all-new Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission, the new Duramax 6600 delivers more power with 360 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. The power increase comes with lower emissions and significantly improved quietness and smoothness. The Duramax 6600 features the capability of the variable-geometry turbocharger to provide exhaust braking with this function available on some medium duty truck models. With the new system, engine-braking is controlled by a signal from the engine controller and can be activated by the driver. The optional Allison 1000 is the first six-speed automatic offered in the category and is available with either the Duramax 6600 6.6-liter V8 diesel or the Vortec 8100 8.1-liter V8 engine.
