    Default Vortec Max Update?

    Hey folks, I'm new here. I'm currently driving a Dodge 2500 diesel 4x4, but I'm looking into getting a Silverado in the next year or so. However, I want to get one when the 6.2 becomes the new Vortec Max motor. I want a half-ton Z71 Silverado, with a 6.2L with VVT and AFM, a 6L80E transmission. Does anybody have an inkling as to when this might be available?

    wait they're making a 6.2 gas job? I had no idea. Why are you getting rid of the cummins?

    If you have any questions or problems don't hesitate to send me or any other GMTC moderators a PM

    Cummins is actually a lot of trouble to keep running right. The 6.2 is in the Escalades and Sierra Denalis, with another version in the base Vettes.

    Welcome to the site! I did some Google searching and just came up with a 2009 or 2010 release.

    I would say not to ever expect the 6.2 in a chevy, the 6.2 is only in the denali versions right now for GMC and Cadillac Escalade sounds to be on the way out of body on frame as it shifts to a lambda base vehicle

    I'm pretty sure the silverado, escalade and sierra all share the GMT900 platform

    the platform has nothing to do with it, the "Denali" is a trim level, the Escalade is a low production vehicle. Silverado does not have an SS as this would be the only place in line with the Denali trim and as i stated the escalade will most likely go to the Lambda (Enclave, Outlook, Acadia, and Traverse) so there is one more reason not to keep the 6.2 around not to mention the 6.2 in the trucks is different from the vette 6.2

    I tried to get the 6.2L when I got my truck, it is only available in the Denali trimmed pickup.
