2014 - No cammo pics





Quote:
But under the skin, the trucks have been thoroughly reworked with a lighter but stiffer frame and cab, modern interior with video screens and wireless connectivity, and a trio of new engines--one V6 and two V8s--from the fifth generation of GM's small-block engine family that uses cylinder deactivation for better fuel economy.

The engines use the EcoTec3 brand and incorporate the same technologies as the first engine from the new-generation small block family, the 6.2-liter LT1 V8 for the redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Corvette. GM has said the LT1 will make at least 450 hp.

Those technologies are:

-- Direct fuel injection, which puts the fuel directly into each cylinder.

-- Continuously variable valve timing, which adjusts the opening and closing of the valves based on engine load.

-- Cylinder deactivation, which shuts down some of the engine's cylinders under light loads. In the trucks, the system turns the V6 and V8 engines into V4s. GM says it has expanded the range within which the system, called "active fuel management," is engaged.

All three of the truck engines--a 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8--use aluminum blocks and cylinder heads, which helps reduce weight compared with iron blocks and heads. The new GM trucks all use six-speed automatic transmissions. Many of the current trucks were equipped with four-speed automatics.

GM has yet to release horsepower and torque ratings for the new engines but promises that the 4.3-liter V6 will be capable enough for towing duty. The V6 will be available in the trucks' large, crew cab configuration.

GM's current pickups use a 4.3-liter V6 as the base engine, rated at 195 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. It would not be surprising if the new V6 is rated close to the current 4.8-liter V8, which puts out 302 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque.

One thing not on the new GM truck engines: forced induction via a turbocharger or supercharger. That makes the base engine in the GM trucks a distinct alternative to the Ford F-150 and its turbocharged EcoBoost V6. The Ram 1500 also offers a V6, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, for higher fuel economy.

Oh, just noticed I didn't mention in the title it was the trucks without cammo. Hope I didn't mislead anyone.

They share brother engines and corvette is mentioned in the accompanying narrative.

But I guess you are right. I shouldn't have posted pics of such a nice clean rear design with so few straight lines in this section.

BTW, this is a followup to a thread I posted here many months earlier that featured a Sierra in Cammo. Not much response to that thread.

Let's look at the good side of this thread, in that Longtimer presented facts, acted consistent with his moderator responsibilities, not the usual daily bombast about how horrible the C7 is.

And not surprisingly, the revealed truck looks accurately like the ones in cammo, there for, we can deduct the final C7 is accurate to the cammo pics of the C7.



It's going to have one ugly ass!

Thank you for approving what I can post as a moderator. Your approval is of great concern to me although your post is wrong.

I have never said the C7 is horrible. In fact I have said many times that it will have the best interior of any corvette in history and will deliver incrementally better performance numbers.

I have frequently said that the exterior design of the side and especially the rear of the C7 are "horrible" and do not belong on a Corvette. I and others here will continue to do so ... with or without your approval.
