Another Idea

Conventional wisdom when talking about the Cheyenne has always dictated it will use the 6.2 in RCSB set up. BUT, what if GM went another route. Perhaps a supercharged small block? Or even a supercharged 6?

Supercharged or even twin turbo would be sweet. I want it to be TT since i love the spooling sound and BOV.
But then again this will have a V8 and there's nothing like the sound of a big V8 combined with the whine from a supercharger, it just sounds right together.

Factory TT dont exactly sound and operate like your thinking. Go drive an EcoBoost F150 and you'll see what I mean.

sounds like enough spool to me, even though it's very slight

and with a 4 inch exhaust...

Depends who they want to target as competition

The concept had a 6.2L V8 in it. So its hard to say..

Would be a big turnaround to go and offer a TT V6

There is a debate on many models between the new 6.2L V8 vs the 3.6L V6 Twin Turbo

http://gmauthority.com/blog/2013/06/...y-the-numbers/

Comes down to mileage

If the TT can prove it can get better mileage than I guess it might be worth it

Only thing is that the V6 requires premium where as the powerful V8 can take regular...

On the article you'll see it states "REGULAR UNLEADED OR E85" for the V8.

Pretty sure that article is wrong. No E85 in the 6.2 weighed heavily on my deciding not to wait for the Cheyenne.

I know of few that have already taken delivery of 6.2 Silverados and they have all confirmed premium fuel and not flex fuel. I'll follow up on the engine number.
