Default Is GM really this stupid?

http://www.enginelabs.com/news/gmc-s...dard-pickup-v6

GM claims the ecotec3 has the most torque of any v6 standard pickup... have they not heard of the ecoboost YET?

Ecoboost makes 365/420... this POS doesn't come anywhere close to that.. So how do they make this claim?

"standard" V6 is the key word of that claim.

Standard (my ass) being the cop out for this claim... Consumers are idiots, and this claim borders on nearly the same level of ignorance the consumers exhibit.

Extreme new found bias towards Ford aside, GM best start trying harder.

I would buy a 6. They tow enough and most people don't tow stuff so a 8 is overkill. I'll take the extra MPG's.

I think the #'s are impressive for a "base" v6 that will be found in the lower level GM trucks. Not everybody needs a turbo in their work truck...

Impressive for an NA v6 to make over 300ft/tq.

So 285/305 from a 4.3L and 302/278 from a 3.7L. GM should have more than a 17 ft/lb advantage with the extra .6L of displacement. GM is late to the party in powertrains comparing a brand new engine to one introduced in 2008.
