Advantages/disadvantages of the VORTEC 4800?


Recommended Posts

The 4.8 is the same block as the other small block chevy's, so their reliability is about the same. I think the 5.3 is a better choice for full size trucks though, if your looking to buy one. From the other treads that I've read about the 4.8, they don't really get any better gas mileage and they don't have the power of the larger engine. You would maybe get a 1 mpg better, but even that would depend on your driving habits.

I was originally looking for a used truck with a 4.8 but after test driving one with a 5.3 my mind was quickly changed. Plenty of power and torque, not bad fuel mileage.
