WilliamBos replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomGreat news. Hope GM is developing a bigger GTDI engine to compete with the 3.5 EB.
Ram does the powertrain updates 2 years after the truck release. And dont knock the Hemi - with 395HP/410 torque, I get better mpg than my friends with their 5.3 GM’s. And unlike GM, Ram does not choke the life out of them with torque management. After owning a Hemi, stepping back in a GM V8 powered truck would be a huge step back. But GM likes lagging behind the others!
WilliamBos replied to 3737's topic in 2019 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraThanks for the info, glad I never bought thr F150 I test drove. And I don’t think Ford has a fix for the door handles freezing shut in the cold climates.
WilliamBos replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomThat will make an interesting year for the HD truck market. All new Ram HD with an all new Cummins, and a new GM with hopefully a new DMAX. Cant wait.
The V8 engines also suffer from horrible mpg when towing the max, so no difference. The difference is the GTDI 2.7 will get superior empty mpg. Thats what most light duty trucks do - drive around empty.

Thats what most light duty trucks do - drive around empty. 66% of all F150 sales are Ecoboosts - says a lot for their engine program. The GTDI engines are here to stsy. I wish GM all the best, hopefully they have an I-6 GTDI to go along side with the I-4 in the 1500.
The 2.7 EB will humiliate and small block and any LT. The 3.5 EB crushes the LT 6.2. The new GM GTDI 2.7 will sell like crazy, and should have an excellent tow rating. It will also outshine any V8, especially when it comes to passing a gas station.
I think the new 2.7 will be a success like Ford’s Ecoboosts, particularly the 2.7 EB. Can’t wait to see the 3.0 Dmax numbers.
