Do You Think Chevrolet Should Drop The Corvette Z06's V8 In A Truck?

Truck

Because it'd be brilliant.

Both Ford and Ram have taken their respective full-size trucks to the max: the SVT Raptor and Rebel. Chevrolet? Not recently, no. And we think it should. Why? Because one of the greatest engines built today is just sitting there waiting for another tour of duty: the LT4 supercharged V8 that powers the Corvette Z06. We’re talking 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. This engine belongs in a truck, even if it’s not a high-performance truck, though that would be awesome. But what about an off-road performance truck?

You know, like the Raptor. Chevrolet has everything it needs, parts-wise, to make this happen. The LT4 will easily fit in the Silverado’s engine bay, but what if it could fit under the hood of the smaller Colorado? Stop and think here; that power-to-weight ratio would be outright bonkers. Performance? Already drooling like a rabid dog. Now, there is a glimmer of hope that Chevy is thinking the same as us, and it’s called the Colorado ZR2 Concept. Thing is, it’s a turbo diesel, which isn’t a bad thing but not exactly what we want. What do you think? Should Chevy forgo the diesel in favor of the LT4, assuming it fits? Prefer an LT4 Silverado? Let us know in the comments.
