  1. You are really grasping at straws. If you want me to go by your definition I would say the 6.2 is "of superior excellence" for all the reasons listed previously. You know what people mean when they say "better". You know what the OP meant. If you want me to start using synonyms here so you can feel like you're right, fine. The 6.2 is superior; of superior excellence. I'm honestly not sure if you are really this dense or just being difficult or maybe you're just trolling and I'm taking the bait.

  2. Ok, so this post was asking to compare a 5.3 liter v8 made by gm to a 6.2 liter v8 made by gm. All these other engines are irrelevant, I'm not saying that there are no engines better than the 6.2 and I dont know where you got the idea that is what was being discussed. Again, comparing these two specific engines, power is the primary difference. 6.2 has more power, better acceleration, better passing power, better at higher altitudes (due to having more available power), basically the same towing and mileage, reliability about the same. How is it not the better engine? What differences are there between these two specific engines that makes you think the 5.3 is better than the 6.2 or at least, what makes you think that being better in this specific scenario is about anything other than power? Again, if we are talking value or comparing to a diesel engine, then you would have a point, there are other factors involved then, but these are two engines made by the same company for the same purposes, one just does everything the other can do, but with less engine strain, or faster.

  3. Didnt. I was saying that your post was worded fine, it really isn't confusing at all, but people are making it that way for no apparent reason. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  4. You didnt word it wrong, that's one of the many reasons this thread is so crazy. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  5. Sorry that's wrong. If the 6.2 performs equal or better in every metric and fills the same purpose as the 5.3 then it is better. If it were comparing a diesel or turbo or another type of engine designed to do different things then it's different, but in this case, the 6.2 is literally an improved, larger version of the 5.3. It's like comparing an apple to a bigger, juicier apple. Its value is subjective, completely, but if you just look at the 2 engines side by side and compare them, the 6.2 is better.

  6. You are way over complicating things. The OP was literally asking about 2 v8 engines that serve the same purpose except 1 is just bigger, more powerful, has better acceleration and passing power, comparable towing and mileage. Better isn't really subjective here. The 6.2 is better, period. When he asked if the 6.2 is worth the cost to get then that question is subjective. If he bad been comparing the 6.2 to the diesel, that would need more info, those engines are different and serve different purposes. None of the insanity in this thread should have happened. Was very entertaining though. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  7. You make me wish being stupid was physically painful. Your statistics aren't right and the whole micropenis/compensating joke wasnt even funny 40 years ago when people thought it was original. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  8. This thread continues to amaze. We've got philosophers, trolls, people talking about crystals, I think I've seen some jokes (or maybe not joking) about people compensating for their body parts and people that cant seem to agree on the definition of the word "better". This is definitely one of the most entertaining threads I've seen on this site. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah I've never had so many different little problems so consistently with any vehicle I've ever owned as I do this one. Was originally planning on keeping it for a long time, doubt I will anymore, just getting tired of there always being something malfunctioning even if I really want to love this truck.

  10. Man haven't been in this thread for a few days...missed a lot of good stuff here. [emoji23] Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  11. I understand that, I just mean it is much more of an investment in terms of price. It's a financial commitment, not some minor expense. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  12. When you spend 40k-70k for a truck, it's different than buying something at the store that isn't really an investment. In addition, like others mentioned, you lose money trading in. The dealer is fine with it, they get to resell your vehicle for a profit and get more money out of you. As for why I wouldn't purchase the same thing, it depends, if it was one consistent issue that I genuinely believed was just a rare bit of bad luck and the truck was a lemon, I might get another, but when you have like 10 different reoccurring problems that are not fixable, to me, that makes me question the quality of the vehicle in its design and quality control from the manufacturer. If it's a lot of different issues like that, I wouldn't have the expectation that another one would be much better, I'd be thinking that the manufacturer just doesn't make a good product, or at least one good enough for that large amount of money and a loss to trade in the broken one. I'd give someone else a try. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. I average 18-18.5 on my 6.2 denali, the at4 gets about 1 mpg less. My driving is mixed with probably 60% highway. I do have a heavyish foot. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. I literally use mine every morning or I'd have sun in my eyes for about an hour straight. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  15. Me either, same tech, but hopefully they have better luck this time and as long as they are happy [emoji2369] Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
