RE: Chevy's I4 2.7 turbo engine

Update: My son said that his new truck is performing great for him. Right now he is averaging 24mpg highway and 20mpg city. I'll try to give further updates when he gets more miles on it. Just for reference my brother claims 27mpg highway and 24mpg city from his 2017 F150 with 2.7 turbo 6 speed. His friend with a 2019 F150 2.7 turbo 10 speed is getting an extra mile or two per gallon. I feel sure that neither one of them is an aggressive driver so results may vary. Well with my 2019 F-150 4x4 with the 2.7 I am lucky to average 18 city and 22 highway.

RE: Chevy's I4 2.7 turbo engine

Thanks for all the replies. My son took the plunge and got himself a 2019 Silverado with the I4 2.7l turbo engine. Interesting read on They say there is no need for the V8 engine in the 1500 GM products because the 2.7 and 3.0 Duramax are so good.

RE: 2020 Ram 2500/3500: MotorTrend Truck of the Year

Ford didn’t have their 2020 HD truck entered in the competition.

RE: Ecoboost vs. V8 - Can you explain?

Inline maybe a better design, but they just dont fit in vehicles well anymore. Curved down hoods, shorter front ends, etc. The V block engines barely fit now. Look under the hood of a V8 diesel with turbos. Its shoved way under the cowl, and all the way to the radiator support. Then add 2 more cylinders to that length... BTW I have a 3.5L Ecoboost. And either I have a bad one or there's alot of people that fib about their mpg. I got 7.9mpg towing a 30ft enclosed all aluminum 7.5ft wide trailer that weighed about 5000lbs loaded. And I havent seen 20mpg on the EVIC (which always reads high) in a LONG time. Turbocharged gas engines need fuel. GM has accomplished this fitting their inline 6 Duramax in their 1/2 ton trucks.

RE: I drove a 2020 Silverado D/A 3500HD today

I really like the look of the new Denali but $80k? ... I wonder what us Canadians will have to shell out? 2020 Chev High Country 2500 with the Duramax. $93,893 is window msrp at our dealership in Alberta. I sure didn’t like the looks in picture but this one is black and with all that chrome on the front I am liking it. Makes a very bold statement.

RE: Car and Driver octane test

So, did Ford change their recommendation in the owners manual away from premium fuel? Ford has never recommended premium for the base model Ecoboost engines engines but they have for the high output engines in the Raptor, Limited and Lincoln. So have they changed, NO. Do they have various recommendations, YES. See the bottom of the first page in the attachment. Standard Ecoboost on the left, HO version on the right: 2019 F150 specs Didi you happen to notice that link also shows a recommendation of ULSD up to B20 for the EB 2.7? That one is new to me. The EB 2.7 is a diesel engine? Yet in the same column on that motor, it says it is coil over plug design. A diesel with spark plugs? So it makes the entire specs sheet seem suspect regarding fuel recommendation. Also, it shows the 5.0L as a 12:1 compression ratio. The 5.0 has never been a high compression engine. Whomever put that sheet together had no clue what they were doing. What spec sheet are you reading? No where do I read that the 2.7 is a Diesel engine. The 5.0 Coyote V8 does have a 12:1 compression ratio. This information is from the Ford website.
