    Default 6.2 liter 1500 Silverado

    In the process of trading in my 07 1500 Z71 for a 2010 1500 Z71 with the new 6.2 liter engine. I like most wanted a couple more ponies!!
    Looking for some feed back on this engine with 3.42 rear end and 6 speed auto.

    Thanks,

    I really really wish I had the 6.2, I'd love to have the extra power and I think it was be a fair trade off for the slightly less mpg's

    I know GM wants to be able to have their trucks achieve the best MPG possible but I would think that at least a 3.73 would be offered for those that dont car about the MPG so much, afterall it is a truck. Even the Colorado with the V8 option can be optioned with the 4.11 rearend. Anyway Good Luck with the purchase and let us know how the big engine runs!!

    I love the 6.2L, with the 3.42's and awd it still can spin the tires! The mileage so far is 17 with only 5300 km on it.
