Better than the V6

Every automaker is going great lengths to improve fuel economy, particularly in trucks. Ram has gone with ultra-mild hybrid technology, and Ford has gone with turbocharged V6 engines, a new diesel, and a 10-speed transmission.

But it turns out Chevy had one other engine up its sleeve: a turbocharged four-cylinder.

Pay for the whole track, but you'll only need the line.

Suspension by Multimatic, brakes by Brembo, tires by Goodyear. Smiles by whoever's driving.
