Newbie questions - 454 4x4 Silverado
Im in Australia and Chevy trucks arent sold over here. This means we have to import them and get them converted to RHD (expensive).
My ideal truck would be a 4x4 Silverado/Sierra with the 454 or 502 motor. Was this combo made and if so what years was it made?

i believe the only years the silverado came from the factory with the 454 were 1990-1993 but i dont think any of them were 4x4.they were sold as the 454SS models.sombody else with a little bit more info may be able to help more

I know some of the suburbans from the 80's had the 454 and 4wd but I'm not sure about the trucks. Other than that I think that redneckarmymp is right about the 1990-93 trucks.

Welcome to the site, and Redneckarmy is right, Silverados were not made stock with 454 4x4, the only stock 454 model was the 454SS in the 90's, but it was only made in 2wd. and no trucks have been produced stock with a 502...sadlyJustin

The "Silverado" body style (beginning in 1999 for light duty trucks, 2001 for heavy duty) never had a 454 or 502 available. The largest gas engine available in the Silverado body style pickup was the 8.1L which was a 496, available in the 2500HD/3500 series trucks from 2001-2007. On the older trucks "Silverado" was just a trim level on the truck.
You could get the 454 with 4x4 in 2500/3500 series trucks from the 1970's until 2000, but it was only in the R/V body style which ran from 1973-1991 in the heavy duty trucks, or the C/K body which ran from 1992-2000 for heavy duty trucks. The 502 was never stock in a pickup truck like others said.

I believe the most powerful gasoline engine you're going to get with a newer Silverado 4x4 is the Vortec MAX. I believe that's a 6.0 if I remember correctly.

Welcome to the club. Do you have to convert to RHD because of the laws or just a personal option??
