6.2l definitely. The 5.3l is a dinosaur, it's a big slow V8 and should be discontinued.

Both of Ford's Ecoboost engines have even more pep than the 6.2l though. Chevy needs to develop a high...

So boats other than bass boats can use the trolling motor. More options is a good thing.

An ulterra style trolling motor works on a wider variety of boats than an ultrex style trolling motor.

I also saw that video. The commenters in the video claimed the opposite is the case. Way more clarity is needed. And Garmin needs to make an Ulterra style trolling motor.

I'd go with a Ford, the 5.0 V8 coyote motor is probably the best.

If you can spring for a 2019, the GMC Sierra with the 6.2L V8 and that new crazy multi-function tailgate is the best option.

It makes sense to switch from I-4 to V6 for the midrange HP models if there's a weight savings. But that doesn't mean they're going to do the same thing for the higher HP models. At least for the...
