Chevy Silverado 1500 Oil Viscosity Grade Recommendation

According to the owner’s manual for the 2020 Chevy Silverado, SAE 0W-20 engine oil should be used for models outfitted with the 5.3L and 6.2L V8 engines. Models equipped with the 2.7L L4, 4.3L V6, or the 6.6L V8 require SAE 5W-30 engine oil.

In case of cold temperatures (like the ones regularly experienced at our Rochester, NY location where the thermometer will read 20 below zero during the winter season), SAE 0W-30 engine oil should be used to help your Chevy Silverado 1500 start up and operate more smoothly.

No additives are needed and may cause engine damage.

Please note that the engine oil recommendations that we have listed are for 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 models. Engine oil recommendations should be similar for models from recent years, but it is always important to refer to your owner’s manual.
