Been liking at a new Silverado 1500 4x4 with the new 2.7 Turbo I-4 gas engine. Really impressed with the low end torque, it's all that I would need.

Does anyone on here have one?

What’s the payload on the truck? It sounds like it fairly light which might give it a good payload number. Pretty good 1/4 mike times too.

I believe the 2.7 hair dryer will replace the 4.3 V6,no big loss there ,owned a couple in full size trucks.They were o.k.but not much better mpg than a V8.
I have seen 23mpg on the high-way with the 5.3 V8 with my last four full size trucks.
The 2.7 would make a nice motor for the Colorado also.

Our speed limits are lower up here than USA - 62mph/100 km on highway and 80km/ 50mph, 50km/31mph.

It's 4x4, NOT AWD, its car and driver, some anti gas yuppy...
I don't get your anti gas yuppy comment. They compared the 2.7T to a 5.3. Both are gas engines. Despite the published mileage ratings favoring the 2.7T, they got the same average mileage for the two engines. The 5.3 had more HP, more torque, more towing capacity, no turbo, less complicated, and was only $1400 less than the 2.7T. What would you be gaining by purchasing the 2.7T over the 5.3?

It's got 2 high, AUTO, 4 high, and 4 low. AUTO is part-time AWD, where it sends all the power to the real wheels until it detects wheel slippage through sensors, then it sends power to the appropriate wheels as needed.

4x4 splits 50-50 between front and back all the time.

Have you considered the little inline 3.0 six cylinder, I drove one a few weeks ago.
It's an impressive little motor with great torque.

I have a 2015 Silverado with the 5.3L V-8. I love that motor and would not consider a 4 cyl turbo that has the published specs- especially in year #1.

YMMV
