      Whats liter mean? How many liters the engine consumes?

        unsure if troll or new to cars. the amount of liters refers to how "big" the engine is. Specifically how big the cylinders are. Measure the volume of one of the cylinders at its lowest point, and multiply it by the number of pistons. In this case, a 0.5 liter cylinder in a 4 cylinder engine would be a 2.0 liter engine. the 5.7 you showed has 8 cylinders each with a volume of 0.7125 liters. Because 0.7125 x 8 = 5.7. The bigger this volume (called the displacement) the more power you can make.

          Yea but trucks arent fast. So why does it need a big motor ?

            Because if you gave it a small motor it would be even slower. A big car needs a big engine. A scooter with a tiny 50cc engine (0.05 liters) moves without a problem. Put that same engine in a car and it would barely move at all. Trucks also need to move heavy loads, and then the engine has to work even harder. A semi truck like this can have an engine as big as 15 liters.

      the higher numbers like 2.0L engine and then 5.7L engines means what ?
      power or speed?

    Huh I wonder why it's almost like torque is more important for a 3/4 ton truck than hp.
    My 1/2 ton has 2.78 or what ever gears and my 3/4 has 4.10 or something I need to check

    Yes, when you put a truck engine in a car it does go fast.

    In fact in the 1960s Americans engineers realized they could sell this to young teenage and young adult baby boomers in a clever bit of marketing and so was born the muscle car.

      Fake revisionist history, cars got the good engines first.

        pickups started getting small block pushrod V8s e.g. GM 350SBC family, ford 302/351 family, chrysler LA family in the mid 60s but many still had inlines
        i don't think they were putting big blocks in them until the 70s, after the muscle car era had ended and everything was getting detuned

        example
        1974 ramcharger options:
        3.7 L Slant Six
        5.2 L or 5.9 L LA small block
        6.6 L or 7.2 L LA big block

        or like the 454 BBC, i believe it was only put in cars until the 80s detuned L19 version

    Yes because if they had smaller engines they would go even slower.

    First, do you know what the difference is between torque and horsepower, and what each of them do?
