Vortec max question?

Vortec max question?

Postby Gron86 [OP] » Oct 15 2013, 10:57pm

Is the 6.2L still considered the vortec max on the 09-2013 1500 trucks.

I know the original vortec max is the 6.0L H.O., However to my understanding this engine was dropped from the 1500 trucks in 09 and replaced with the 6.2 vortec. But I still hear people, magazines and dealers referring to the 6.2 as the vortec max in silverado/sierra 1500 trucks 19-2013

sorry if this sounds confusing, just want to get some answers from someone who knows, Simply for peace of mind.

Thanks :D

From my research it looks like the 6.0 and 6.2 were offered starting in 2009, but the 6.0 was only offered in a hybrid in 2011. I couldn't tell if they were both called the Vortec Max, but I suspect they were.

Probably the 6.0 stopped being the Max when the 6.2 showed up.

Its just a marketing term they seem to have dropped,
Maybe because GM would rather the 6.2 liter be more closely associated with the truly high performance corvette motor(
which is very nearly identical) than the older less powerful '' vortec max '' H.0. 6.0 litre.
Although when you order the '' max trailering package '' the 6.2 litre is the motor that you get(old body style trucks).
