  1. Agreed! They are insanely expensive to replace when they break, a good move on GM’s part.
  2. My 11 left the factory with 265 70 17 on it - look ped much better when I put BFG AT KO on it.
  3. Great news. Hope GM is developing a bigger GTDI engine to compete with the 3.5 EB.
  4. The turbo I-4 would not be a bad option, but it would be better if GM shove their AFM up their asses.
  5. 2019 V8 Horsepower ratings.

    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!
  6. I agree, these bicycle tires have no business on trucks.
  7. I completely agree. GM has a high performance division, why not let us add when we buy? Dealer installed with full warranty.
  8. Thanks 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.
  9. 4cyl Silverado?

    The Ford Ecoboost are available in a 2.7 and 3.5v6. This new GM GTDI 2.7 I-4 has my attention, I’d trade my Ram in for one in a few years. Wonder if the MPG numbers will equal the 2.7EB?
  10. Give it time, someone will find a hack. Edge has a piggyback tuner for the Rams now, only took 3 years, but they did it.
  11. That 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
