Full-Size Chevy Pickups Offer Reliability and Efficiency Active Fuel Management in the Chevy V8 engine provides power when you need it and shuts down four of the cylinders when you don't so drivers get more fuel efficiency than leading competitors' V6 with turbochargers
PLAINFIELD, Ill., Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Chevrolet has been building V8 engines and Silverado trucks for a long time and they are good at what they do. In fact, over half of all full-size Chevy trucks built over 20 years ago are still on the road today. This statistic shows that Chevy is dependable and long lasting, two of the qualities that make it one of the best selling pickups in America. Check out a full size Chevy Silverado in Plainfield, IL today at Bill Jacobs Plainfield.
Most Chevy truck owners tow or haul with their vehicle, over 85 percent in fact. This means that they are taxing their truck and using the power that it offers. While power and cylinders is important, so is fuel economy and the competitive market is trying to prove that smaller engines are better. Chevy has been building the 5.3-liter V8 for over 57 years, and has produced more than 100 million of the engines, and they believe it is their best option. While a leading competitor uses a turbo-charged V6 instead of a V8, Chevy's V8 offers more power with the same fuel economy.
Here at Bill Jacobs Plainfield, we are impressed with the Chevy engines. The technology used is called Active Fuel Management, which shuts down four of the eight cylinders when they are not needed so that the truck doesn't use as much fuel. The entire engine is used when power is needed but hydraulic valves and sophisticated software ensures that the optimal gas mileage can be earned by the fuel management system. This is just another reason why Chevrolet is on top and is one of the leaders of full size pickups.
