V8 Thread

I'm possibly gonna be in the market for another truck. Thinking of leaving the diesel world and going back to a V8. I'm not wanting a 3.5 eco boost, nor a 5.0 or 5.3. I'm looking for the 6.0 or 6.2 V8. These things are tough to find at a reasonable deal. How do you like yours? Any input is appreciated.

If I were to buy a truck today; I would get the GM 1500 6.2. My son drives my 94 silverado 305 w/275K and my 05 duramax has 260K. Yes, I am partial to GM but take pride in your trucks and change those fluids. Good luck with your decision.

I hear ya there. I'm looking for sure. Thing is, finding a 6.2 in one that is not a Denali. I'm on the prowl for one for sure. Ive looked at them all and now added the tundra and dodge to the mix. I believe for is out on this one.

If you want to stick with gm why not go diesel route. Sounds like you want something for the Long haul, at least you'll get the Allison with it instead of the 8L90

My 07 has been perfect mechanically once I removed all of the egr and exhaust ****. Inside of the truck sucks. Typical Chevy garbage but I'm not cadillacing around in it daily. Just for boats and trailers. Amsoil heavy duty marine with ea25 filter. 110 bucks dealer price and change once a year.

As far as fuel mileage goes that really isn't a factor because only use a truck when I need the truck.

Thing is, do I need a diesel anymore or want a diesel... The need vs a wan, I tow a boat(flats boat) and a small trailer at times. so the money on diesel vs gas is where im looking at now.

Got yah. Have a truck 250k+ pulls trailer daily. , Ford same transmission. All of the transmissions on my Chevy gassers liked to go out at 85k. This is the 90-2000 era so not the same transmission. Im just gun-shy of these new autos. The a1000 has been bullet proof is why I mentioned diesel if sticking with Chevy family. Can get decent used for 16-20k cash. Payed 17 something cash for mine probably 8 years ago but there is nothing fancy about it.

Because you added Tundra to the mix, I would test drive the GM and Tundra. Unfortunately, Toyota will not bargain on their prices, but they have great vehicles. Also, they are thirsty but all trucks are thirsty over 2K RPMs. Have you considered the Tacoma? A few months ago, I purchased my wife a 4Runner with plans to keep for myself. Sorry to add to the confusion, but I would narrow down between GM and Toyota.
