To put it in perspective, the 3.4l V6 in the first gen Equinox put out 185hp and not a great deal more torque than the current 4cyl.RNOX said:182 HP is pretty high for a 4 cyl. The acceleration is fine. You should test drive each version of engine
38ft-lbs difference; i would call that a good deal more....especially when it comes to towing.... 172 versus 210NoobNox said:To put it in perspective, the 3.4l V6 in the first gen Equinox put out 185hp and not a great deal more torque than the current 4cyl.
I was thinking more along the lines of acceleration. Even though the I4 is rated for towing a small amount...I still wouldn't do it. (maybe one dirtbike or a jetski, but nothing else)gar187er said:38ft-lbs difference; i would call that a good deal more....especially when it comes to towing.... 172 versus 210
Umm.. the old 3.4 put out more torque at idle then the the new 2.4L I4 does at it's peak.NoobNox said:To put it in perspective, the 3.4l V6 in the first gen Equinox put out 185hp and not a great deal more torque than the current 4cyl.
Lucky I do have the data.RIT333 said:While I don't have the data, I really would have to call BS on that statement. Prove me wrong, please.
Thank you for the two charts. I do find that very surprising. I had read that the 3.4 had a flat torque curve, but didn't realize it was that flat.GMCdriver said:Lucky I do have the data.
Why is it that the people who have no idea what they are talking about always pass the burden of proof on to those of us who do?
My use of the term 'at idle' is a bit sarcastic because they don't ever really measure power output from engines at the modern 'low idle' settings they have now but from where they start to take measurements, above about 1000rpm... well take a look for yourself.
I'm a stay at home dad, haven't worked for about 6 years now with the exception of teaching the motorcycle saftey course a few weekends & evening in the summer months. Before that I worked in various sales(electronics & vehicles) & managment jobs(call centers for banks, office supplies & auto dealerships)RIT333 said:If you want to see a real flat one, then you should see my .... just kidding honey !
Based upon your file structure depth, you have access to mucho data on GM, huh ? Care to comment on your occupation ? Sorry for challenging your statement. (FWIW, I have tons of data on Electricity Power Generation Equipment around the World - possibly second to no one !)
Wow, those lines are so straight it makes it look faked. IMO this is the 4cyl they should have put in the Equinox, or at least as an option. If this engine was available I would have skipped on buying the V6.GMCdriver said:You wanna see a flat one, check this out...
You can see where the turbo spools up between 1000-1700rpm and then----> woosh.
Not to shabby for a 2.0L I4.
