Might want to change your signature, it isn't a twin turbo but rather a single turbo 2.7L motor.

Oops! I had Ecoboost on the brain I guess. Thanks!

Absolutely loving my 2.7 so far. Power is more than adequate and the economy is pretty darn good when you try to squeeze all you can out of a gallon. Took a little road trip to visit a cousin the other day, 30 mile one way, speed limit never more than 45mph, flat land and plenty traffic lights. Averaged a tad over 29 mpg according to the dic for a 25 mile stretch, And Averaged 20.5 on my last tank all suburban driving.

:wtf: I keep seeing this Bilstein koolaid. I have made the switch (after my stockers wore out nearly 70k later and miles of back country driving), the difference is slight and I can only imagine that much less so when only doing one end. I bet 9 out of 10 people if given the chance to ride back to back with only a rear shock change on stockers that are low miles at that would not be able to tell a difference. Even replacing all four when worn out the difference wasn't huge...

I find this hard to believe. I swapped just my rear at around 5,000 miles and the difference is definitely noticeable. My bed is almost always close to empty and that thing hopped around like mad. Now it doesn’t.

New 2022 2.7ho will have 420 lbft of torque,  72lbft bump! 

I seriously thought this was a joke. Can't believe how much they've improved this engine and I'm super jealous. However, my 2021 2.7L is good enough for my needs (especially given how hard it is to find a new truck). I hit the 5k mark and did my first oil change. 2.7L feels even smoother / slightly more powerful. Nice to see this type of innovation from GM. Will put pressure on all other manufacturers to step it up.

I thought about trading it in, but honestly I love my column shifter, the power is plenty, and I don't really want to lose money on the trade (or get yelled at by my wife), so I'm going to stick with my 2021.

 

Also, I'm probably one of the highest-mileage 2.7 owners out there at 17k miles, with a lifetime average of 22.5 mpg. I'm pretty freaking happy with that. I'm about to throw on a straight-through magnaflow muffler and a cold air intake so hopefully I squeeze out a little more mpgs or HP/torque.

I have the Afe CIA it’s pretty awesome. I wouldn’t do a muffler… try the CAI alone first it makes the engine sound pretty badass and the turbo louder.

Can anyone source the L3B part # and then the new L3B HO part #?  I have a 2022 LTD Custom Trail Boss on the way and dealer has no clue which I am going to see.  RPO is same but part #'s are different.

27,000 and 23.9 mpg

This thread was a good read. It seems most people are satisfied with this motor. While it’s not a horsepower monster, it seems to have good torque and will only get better starting next year. I really want them to drop the HO 2.7 in the next generation Colorado. If they do, I’ll likely buy that.

I  will say I wish I drove an Ecoboost before pulling the trigger on the Silverado, but I was just worried about reliability (Found On Road Dead). How do the F150 2.7 and 3.5 compare to the GM 2.7? Can't really find much on youtube about how they drive. —- Jonathan Akers

 

 

—————————————————————-

 

 

I just came from a 2.7 ecoboost. The engine was the best part of the whole truck. It’s also Ford’s most reliable engine most likely. It’s incredibly stout. There’s documentation on a Ford forum of a man who travels emergency delivery across the eastern half of the United States who has driven an early 2015 2.7 ecoboost to around 450,000 miles with oil changed and filter changed. And a sensor I believe. Stock turbo. Sometime did happen mechanically at the end and he did trade the truck in for a newer one, but I don’t think it was turbo related. It’s also Ford’s most sold engine in the F150 line up and I’ve seen far far fewer problems as compared to the 5.0 and 3.5 on any type of community board. 
 

 

It’s proof that If the block and internals are built right from the ground up to be forced induction, it can have the same longevity as an 8 cylinder, non forced induction. 

Thermal cycles and friction  are what do internal combustion engines in, and Ford has skimped in that area with their 3.5 ecoboost. Look at the Tundra’s 3.5 twin turbo…….if everything is engineered and up to par, I’d bet on average that engine will last even longer than Ford’s 3.5 ecoboost. They DIDNT skimp on the engine cooling. 
 

This is what interests me about the GM 2.7. Inline engine with only one turbo. And forged internals with a stout block and iron liners. The cooling and thermal system seems to be there to make this a long lasting engine.
