Why Would You Put a Turbo 4 Cylinder Engine in That Big Chevy Silverado
"I think it's another damn GM idea," said Killmer in today's video referring to the 2019 Chevy Silverado 4-cylinder truck.
"Let's face it. The 4 cylinder engines: they have been proven to be garbage over the last decade and a half. Why would you put a turbo 4-cylinder engine in that big Silverado full size pick up?
Then he explains that people drive full size pickup trucks for one main reason. They want a fast pickup truck. They want to holler a lot of stuff the bag, or they want to tow.
"I even tell people if you are really serious about towing, forget any gasoline engine and get a diesel engine. So, why on earth, anybody will buy a 4-cylinder gasoline engine in a big American pickup truck," Kilmer asked in his video.
"I forecast you can watch Scotty's forecast in a while, you can laugh at me or will say he was a genius. See, two or three years from now, I'll have a 4-cylinder engines sold in a Silverado, I bet you it's a complete failrue," Scotty concluded.
