It seems odd that gm would be reducing engine option in the C/C twins just as Ford is increasing options in Ranger. Apparently, the 2.3EB is staying as the base option, but the 2.7EB will likely be an option, while Ranger Raptor may receive the 3.0EB. Not to mention if any of those will come with a hybrid option, likely the 2.3.

The only reason GM made the change was because they have completely divested all holdings in Thailand. The 2.8L was manufactured in Thailand. There is still a 2.0D L4 produced at a plant in S. Korea that could possibly find its way under the hood of Colorado / Canyon. It has similar output to the 2.8D.

I'm guessing you're speaking about the LSQ. Do you think it could be safely, and within emission standards, be squeezed/massaged for little higher output?

LWN. . . . . . . . . . . . . .LSQ
181hp@3400. .vs. . .174hp@3500
369tq@2000. . . . . . .281tq@1500

HP is close. But that loss of 0.8L really rears it's head in the torque department.

I doubt we get that. Not with 420 lb-ft @3000 in the 2.7. I think they're just trying to save money on development honestly. Mid size margins aren't as profitable. They want folks in Silverados, not Colorados, if possible. So we get an updated platform, not new as originally planned, and a single engine. Look at what Nissan just did with the Frontier.

The 310hp/420tq of the newest L3B is nice. You think gm will offer a PHEV variant if the 2.3PHEV makes it into Ranger?

It's been leaked that it's output would be in the 270kw/680nm (362hp/501tq) range. Ironically, making this the likely powerplant for Ranger Raptor.

All the while the standard Rangers get the Bronco's 2.3L (300hp/325tq) and optional 2.7 (330hp/415tq) in North America anyway.

GM has all but abandoned hybrids of any kind (Corvette E-Ray being the fringe exception). Shortsighted IMO but I do acknowledge the complexity to build them. They had all they needed with the Voltec powertrain which was brilliant and refined, oh well.

In the meantime they won't have an answer to PowerBoost or this rumored 2.3 PHEV as you mentioned.
