Check your owner's manual to know for sure. Is it a 5.3L? My guess would be 5W-30 and 5-5.5 quarts. Autozone and Advance Auto have books that should tell you manufacturers suggestions as well.

How much oil for the rear end in the front and 2011 Silverado 1500 4 x 4

My 1999.5 Silverado 1500 and my 2004 Silverado 1500 (both with the 5.3 Vortec V8) took 5.5-6 quarts of 5W30. I tried to stick with synthetic and high mileage once my trucks hit 150k miles.
