27 is by far the highest MPGs I have ever seen any brag about getting with a F150 EcoBurst. I think he meant to type 1 instead of 2.


No I meant what I typed.

We got 17 pulling the Ranger at 75 on a 5-1/2 hour trip from the other side of Austin back to Lufkin.

Just because a Tundra doesn't get 17 on the highway empty doesn't mean others do not. stir

2020 GMC / Chevy are starting to deliver a 3.0 Diesel Duramax that puts out 280hp and 460lb/ft of torque. All the reviews are great but its only available in the higher trim packages. This motor without a trailer/freight is getting 30mpg. There's a lot of talk of this motor going into a Tahoe/Suburban. 30mpg in a tahoe / suburban is pretty friggin amazing.

Isn’t the gm a four cylinder? If so no way I’m buying that for a full-size truck pulling anything.
Heard they were having hell selling them. Leave it to gm to come out with a product nobody wants.

Yeah its a 4 cylinder and its a turbo. It produces way more low end power than the NA v8's and many report it tows better. Seems it gets better fuel mileage empty too. I will be looking at one in a few years when we get rid of my wifes current vehicle. Im sure they aren't for everyone and I wouldn't want one for a hot shot rig, but for what most people use a pickup for it will do more than enough.

Same problem ford faced and still does with the ecoboost a bunch of no nothing idiots saying what? I and buying a 6 in want v-8 power all the while the v-6 made more HP more torque and had a much better power curve.

I've been a GM guy my whole like and I'd like to say that the new Silverado and Sierra are butt ugly. Never thought I'd say this but the Dodge Ram is a better looking truck and the Ford since they got rid of the big frown on the grill is the best looking truck out there. That being said I'd still buy one of those ugly Sierra;s before anything else.

I'm old school, sometimes to my own detriment, but I'll stick with my V-8. I've always been a fan of the least amount of moving parts possible. But the reality is, none of these new trucks will be on the road in 40yrs like so many 80's model Chevies still are. So sad even our vehicles are disposable now.

I had an '84 Chevy truck. It wasn't all that. Back then, we hoped we could get 100k miles without needing a rebuild. Now engines hit 3-400k miles all time and have 2-3 times the power while doing it. I hardly think we're taking a step backwards.

I’m glad my Tundra with its supercharged 5.7L iForce doesn’t get 17 mpg. I didn’t buy it to be cheap at the pump. I bought it cause it’s fast, fun to drive, and pulls a boat great. It also has the best brakes of any truck in its class. By far the best brakes. You gotta stop when your truck is fast.

Did you buy it like that or did you put an aftermarket supercharger on?
How much MPG does it get? How much HP/TQ?

I love Tundras and I think they are the best truck out there hands down.

It used to be you could get a SC put on at a Toyota dealer and still get factory warranty but I believe Toyota/TRD discontinued that program. I think Magnuson have the product to sell to those that want a SC for the Toyotas..I believe it is around 5-6K to have one installed. I think around 510+hp with good ecu tuning and equivalent torque gains..no use asking mpg when stock even LOL..mine gets 17 on hwy stock
