A Fond (and Filling) Farewell To The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado In Texas BBQ Country



“EPA at 19/21 mpg city/highway. The Mahindra TR40’s disappointing highway mileage can’t even measure up to Ford’s 302-horsepower, 3.7-liter F-150 4X2, which is rated at 17/23 mpg.”

That is not far off the very poor 25mpg US it got here. That is one reason it never sold. The very agricultural 2.2 diesel did not have enough grunt for the vehicle.

“I was surprised the so many Hilux were such pigs, but the diesel 2013 Toyota Hilux SR KUN26R get 9.3/100km. Yeah I know it’s an automatic, but the Mahindra get 9.1.”

Where did you get a 9.3/100km for the Hilux? when it gets 8.1/100lm for the diesel

Or 29mpg US. A PICKUP GETTING 29 MPG US is a PIG???


2013 Toyota Hilux Workmate KUN16R

• 2 door Cab Chassis

• 8..1 LITRE/100K

• 5 speed, Manual

• 4 cylinder, 3.0 litre engine

? “We have stripper trucks to fully-loaded behemoths that you have nothing that come close to *but* those are the ones that you put up against your strippers for a max payload comparo every time.”

What do you mean? Try to get a website reference to state your case

“Colorado cab/chassis, I’m even more right. Look on the link I gave you the Colorado with the absolute most payload just happens to be a cab/chassis stripper 2wd, regular cab with vinyl everywhere”

Your answer is very confusing . Look on what Link? Comparing to what?

“With the F-250 link, click on “Capacity and Volume”. See that wasn’t so hard, was it? I’ll cut and paste for you if still can’t figure it out…

GVWR Standard………..10000

GVWR Maximum……….. 10000

Payload Standard……..4240

Payload Maximum………4240″

What is this supposed to mean? Where is this 4250lb payload? Where is it on the Ford Website?

On the Website it shows 7,260 lbs. (F-350 DRW 4×2 Regular Cab) Where is the base



“And where is the your link detailing the “much lower (rear end) ratio” of the Mahindra that supposedly killed its EPA MPG?”

From the same Pickup.Com article:


Nissan Frontier 4×4 Crew Cab: 14 city/ 19 highway

Toyota Tacoma 4×4 Crew Cab: 16 city/ 20 highway

Ford F150 SuperCab (3.7L) 4×4: 16 city/21 highway

Mahindra TR40 Crew Cab 4×4: 19 city/21 highway

So, the Mahindra does get THE BEST FUEL ECONOMY of the bunch. However, being it runs on diesel fuel which is presently more expensive than regular gas, it’s most likely a wash at best.

I’m curious as to how the Mahindra is geared. If it is geared ridiculously low, that could be part of the reason why the fuel economy isn’t as high as it could be. I’m guessing this is the case since the Mahnindra’s payload exceeds even the F150’s by a staggering 900lbs.
