    Vortec, a new family of engines, is introduced, providing more power and torque than last year's offerings. The Vortec engines available on the C/K 2500 pickups include a 5.0-liter V8, producing 220 hp @ 4,600 rpm and 285 lb-ft of torque @ 2,800 rpm and a 5.7-liter V8, rated at 250 hp @ 4,600 rpm and 335 lb-ft of torque @ 2,800 rpm.

Vehicle: 1996 GMC Sierra 2500 C2500 HD SLE 2dr Extended Cab LB

I've owned trucks for years. The motor size spooked me at first. For its size and power, 15mpg city is good! It's very comfortable and has never let me down. Motor currently at 210,512 miles and going strong. Seems to be happiest running loaded. Hoping it lasts as long my last truck (78 Chevrolet 1/2tn.) That made it 475,000 before I sold it. Still running great. This is well on it's way to matching the old Beastly (my daughter names my trucks!)
