JGS vs. Lightning
Let me educate you boys for a min on this new silverado. First of all what you hear about the JGS having more power than the lightning is true! Unless I am mistaken the current lightning has somewhere in the neighborhood of 380 horspower. Now that is a pretty impressive number for a 2 wheel drive sport truck. However, you can now tell everyone you have heard it as a fact that the JGS has 395 horspower and 425 lb feet of tourque. And this all comes out of a 293 cubic inch engine compared to the lightning's 330 cubic inch. Also, this truck don't come in just the slush-o-matic. Standard equipment for the JGS is a 5 speed trans. Another fact for you is that that JGS was raced against the lightning at Irwindale speedway and it pulled away from the lightning by two tenths of a second off the line. I don't know aobut you but in racing two tenths of a second gives one time to stop for some donuts and coffee. As super chevy magazine says this truck is ford lightning killer on a financial diet. And as truckin magazine suggests, "Gibbs will not have a hard time selling these lightning buyers." Well now that you have been educated I will let you know that you may go trade in your ford lightning POS for a real truck at an authorized chevrolet dealership. Oh and by the way these trucks should be compared because since more than 500 will be made and since they retain factory warranty they are considered to be production trucks. Just because you are uneducated does not mean that you can say two trucks should not be compared. Next time please be knowledgeable before you put your little fingers into gear on your keyboard.
Enjoy your new bowtie,
