As many of us know, the silverado with the inline 6 3.0L duramax has been pending to come out on the market. Well over the weekend a bunch of media outlets were given first chances to view and report on the new 3.0L engine in the silverado. One thing that is concerning me is the possibility that they just kicked the 2.8L in the balls in regards to MPG. Multiple media outlets were given a chance to drive a 27 mile 60mph max speed route to test out the vehicle and so far numbers have been looking pretty interesting on the loop. So far we have had media reports of 31.6mpg, 33.2mpg, 34.8mpg, and 38.6mpg on this 27mile loop.
