The problem is chemistry. When you break the bond between hydrogen & carbon (or oxygen if you're intent on using electrolysis), it takes a certain amount of energy. When you make a hydrogen bond with...

The ratio of each individual gear is pretty meaningless on its own without taking into account the final drive ratio. For the C7 manual, this is 3.42:1 and on the CTS-Vsport its 2.85:1. That gives an...

Yeah, the diesel strikes me as an odd choice for this kind of truck. Would have thought they'd at least put the V6 in there, if not something a little crazy like the 5.3 from the Silverado or even...

I'd believe that. If it were a 'lets just throw this out there' concept, I'd figure it would be more radical & have a name like 'Desert Runner' rather than 'Colorado ZR2'

The flip side of that is weigh saving usually costs money. This isn't so much of a problem on a Cadillac, but it is an issue for a Camaro.

I just noticed that I had failed to notice the '+' after the V in DenverTaco's post. I thought he was just talking about the 'regular' V. The gist of my post still stands though, more or less.

I tended to dismiss that (rarely heard) rumour as wishful thinking. The question was nearly always twin turbo V6 or naturally aspirated V8. Turns out its a twin turbo V6 with 450 hp.
