Default Question/Difference of:<>HP<>Torque<>Rear

Noticed that RoadTrek and PleasureWay both have a HP of 323 @ 4,600 RPM, the
Free Flight has a HP of 300 @ 4400 RPM.

RoadTrek and PleasureWay both have a Torque of 373 @ 4,400 RPM, Free Flight
has a Torque of 360 @ 4000 RPM.

PleasureWay and Free Flight have a Rear Axle Ratio of 3.73, RoadTrek has a
Rear Axle Ratio of 4.10.

Question/Difference on: HP 323 @ 4,600 RPM -vs- 300 @ 4,400?

Question/Difference on: Torque 373 @ 4,400 RPM -vs- 360 @ 4,000 RPM?


Question/Difference on: Rear Axle Ratio 4.10 -vs- 3.73

<Am I correct that the Rear Axle Ratio of 4.10 is best for towing as
compared to a Rear Axle Ratio of 3.73, does this have anything to do with better
fuel mileage?>

I don't know the answers to your questions but I'm sure other forum members here will know.

Bobojay worked for GM for 34 years. He offers his opinion on the different rear axle ratios in the discussion in the link noted above.
