    around my way I would say 1/2 the new trucks are trail boss versions and NOW on the LT trailboss that INCLUDES the 5.3L and 10 SPEED as BASE making the trail boss an even better option NOT TO MENTION the 6.2 OPTION

    You know what would be really cool? A regular cab short bed Trailboss with the 6.2. Just have to move to the Middle East to get one.

    That would be awesome! Currently, it looks like only the 5.3L AFM V8 is available with regular cab short bed 2019 Silverado Trail Boss in the Middle East.

    2019 Sierra AT4 is offered in a RCSB configuration in the Middle East as well with the same engine as Silverado Trail Boss.

    I thought the 6.2 only required 91 or higher. I’ve run 91 in my truck plenty of times and haven’t experienced any odd sounds or power loss. I actually think I get better mileage running 91. Generally I do buy 93 because that’s what my regular station carries.

    I've read it on here from people saying that you can run 91, but 93 is "recommended". That difference can get pretty costly when right now I run 87, while 89 is "recommended"... depending on which station I pick, that can be 40 cents a gallon difference having to even run 91 up from 87! At least I have the option now to go up in grades when I tow... can't go up to 93 if I wanted to.

    Is premium "required" or "recommended"? It's "recommended" in both my Vette and 2SS Camaro.

    Wow. GM doing something we want. Hell must have frozen over!

    Now all we need is a standard box reg cab rwd with the 420hp and Chevy can rule the street truck world.

    It would be hilarious to see Ram squeeze an extra 5 HP out of the 5.7 and make the dumbass cheapest 400+HP claim pointless (because we all know it is anyways).
    That's right, the Hellcat engine isn't available in the trucks yet. I was thinking it was. Next year I'll be right?

    And what's pointless about it? 400+ is a milestone that only a handful of engines meet. Only two trucks get you there. There are many engines in the 300HP range.

    Ford actually does and has for a few years now. They have a HO 3.5L EB that's only available in the Raptor and Platinum I think. Something like 450HP and 510TQ. That's the only truck engine that tops the 6.2L.

    The requirement is for premium unleaded, not specifically 93. Premium varies around the country for whatever reason - I think due to altitude. And you can buy octane booster for $3-$5 at any gas station in the country if you want it.

    Wait...you're talking the hellcat? Where is the LT4 in the trucks then? Come on. Be realistic here.

    The HO 3.5L is only in the Raptor. Meanwhile the "other" top of the line 3.5L is available on all trims from XL to Platinum, no limitations there. The HO 3.5 should be limited to the high performance Raptor only, just like the Rebel TRX should have be the only one with the specialty Hellcat. And once these are out, I'd think GM would be wise to come out with their LSA/LS9 version of a truck to try and win some of this hot offroad market. These specialty performance engines aren't in the same boat as the 6.2L, which although it's a great engine, it's not the same purpose as the Hellcat or 3.5L HO.

    I'd consider that option in a hot rod if I drive the country, but never would I do that with my daily driver.

    Thanks for that info! I forgot about the HO software tuning of the 3.5L EcoBoost engine for Limited and Raptor versions (as well as Lincoln Navigator). I looked into this further, and it turns out there's a third tune for the Expedition Platinum rated at 400 hp even.

    The Ford GT also uses the 3.5L EcoBoost engine, but with different hardware optimized for supercar duty.

    • 375 hp, 470 lb-ft (F-150 XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum; Expedition XLT & Limited)
    • 400 hp, 480 lb-ft (Expedition Platinum)
    • 450 hp, 510 lb-ft (F-150 Limited & Raptor; Lincoln Navigator)

    Re-read my post. I thought it was already available in the trucks. I read an article a while back that said it was coming. I just assumed it was already here. That's why I said maybe next year.
