GM 3.6 Liter V-6 LGZ Engine
The 3.6L V-6 LGZ is a gasoline engine produced by General Motors for mid-sized pickup trucks and SUVs. Displacing 3.6 liters in a V-6 configuration, the LGZ is part of GM’s second-generation double-overhead-cam engine architecture. It replaces the 3.6L V-6 LFX engine in the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado and 2017 GMC Canyon.
The LGZ makes its debut on the 2017 Chevy Colorado and 2017 GMC Canyon, where it makes an SAE-certified 308 horsepower (230 kW) at 6,800 rpm and 275 pound-feet (373 Nm) at 4,000 rpm.
Compared to the 3.6L V-6 LFX it replaces, the LGZ features an advanced suite of engine technologies, including:
- Improved variable valve timing for intake and exhaust
- Improved direct injection
- Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation), which disables two cylinders under light throttle applications
The LGZ is based on GM’s 3.6L V-6 LGX engine, which launched GM’s second-generation double-overhead-cam engine architecture, but is tuned for truck use.
