LSV 23 2015 vs. 2016 differences?


Recommended Posts

Main difference is the engine and trailers.

2015 had (GM) Monsoon engines, Dealer supplied trailer

2016 has (Ford) Raptor engines, Malibu Supplied/Branded Trailer.

There are a few other options that were offered different. Surf Pipe etc.

and the Ford engine has more HP?  I think the Ford is 6.2l vs. the 350 from Chevy, is that accurate?  I was told by my local dealer that '16 also had some sort of differential change to improve holeshot - is that not the case?
