Why would a truck w/55,000 have engine trouble already? on 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe

I bought my Tahoe supposedly brand new from Ryan Cheverolet in 2007. I just got an oil change in May and in June my engine oil low warning came on. I took it to the dealership and was told i needed a new motor because they could not find any other reason why my truck would use 2qts of oil in 1 month. I just dont understand why i would need a new motor already. What would cause this to happen so soon..right after my warranty expires....PLEASE HELP!!!!

MOST NEWER CARS USE SOME OIL DUE TO THE THICKNEES OF THE OILS BEING USED TODAY. TRY A LUCAS ADDITIVE AND SEE IF THAT HELPS. I DON'T THINK YOU NEED A MOTOR ITS NOT THAT ABNORMAL TO USE 1/2 QT EVERY 500 MILES THESE DAYS
