Like most GMT based sport utility vehicles, the Chevrolet division of GM has produced some winning combinations. The inner workings of the 3.0 V6 rely heavily on the 6-speed gearbox for correct positioning of power. The Equinox was built in the year 2005 although did not use the V6 front engine design until the production years of 2010, 2011 and 2010 in the U.S.

High Feature V6 GM Engines

There are two distinct RPO codes that are attached to the newer crossover vehicles being produced at GM. The first model is the LF1. This is known as a high feature motor. The 60-degree shape is the same although the dual overhead camshaft is different. A direct injection fuel system is not the only new feature. The modified air intake system sets the 3.0 apart from earlier blocks.

The LFW RPO code has the very same specs as the LF1. A person find out which version is which by reviewing the fuel recommendations. Only E85 fuel is recommended in the LFW V6. This adheres to the 11:7:1 ratio specs. The high pressure fuel delivery combined with the torque of the motor help the Equinox to achieve 17 miles per gallon on average.

The rating of each of the 6-cylinder builds in 3.0 displacement is approximately 264 horsepower. The high feature blocks have been expanded recently to showcase a new power level for the Chevrolet Equinox SUV. A 3.6-liter version is now being installed for people who purchase the all-new crossover editions. What is supported on this website is the smaller 3.0-liter.
