Chevy or Ford engine choice?
We are ready to pull the plug today on a Freelander 27QB, but are unsure whether to go with the Chevy 4500 or Ford E350 engine. As I understand it the Chevy has more horses and the Ford has more torque. The Ford is also $2k more expensive.
We aren't the most mechanically shrewd folks on the block, so don't really know how to look at the hp vs torque thing. We will be going on mainly 1-2 week trips, with a longer 1 or 2 lasting a month, each year, perhaps 12k miles all together. We would also like to go to Alaska in a couple years. We will be towing an HHR behind the RV.
Any thoughts on the engine choice especially, and Freelander 27QB in general, would be greatly appreciated.
