My old gen 2 couldn't climb sand dunes like this one can! Also, lets be honest I'll never keep a vehicle that long. All you die hard Gen 1 guys think you've got some kind of tank. The 6.2L engine probably will last a lot longer cause it's a 6.2L NA putting down 385-415 HP. It's a work truck engine. The ecofart is medium sized v6 boosted performance engine that's designed to make 200,000 miles at 450HP. It's going to be good enough for a performance vehicle.
