  1. Using my truck for work for quite a while and occasionally dragging trailers through the mud on construction sites, I've to say that this is a no go for me. In those situations, I'm using my truck like a truck is meant to be used. And I need 4low for a) having all the wheels pulling, and b) to do it in a slow and controlled manner to not damage the trailer or the tools inside. Some may argue that 4low won't be necessary anymore because of the gearing of the transmission. In my eye, that would make a 4low option even more desirable for me! so long j-ten-ner
  2. Damn, that little four banger is impressive. And, for some reason I feel more comfortable with a 2.7L turbo I4 than a 2.7L turbo V6. Maybe it's because of the displacement per cylinder what gives me a better feeling about this engine. I'm going to test drive it! This torque curve is what I'm looking for. Easy, available, confident. so long j-ten-ner
  3. Short sighted is, not to be concerned about one MPG or two. Because in the long run it's hundreds of Miles and Gallons. so long j-ten-ner
  4. No. You don't have to be a real person. As long as you're not an actor. so long j-ten-ner
  5. 2019 V8 Horsepower ratings.

    lol did I hit a nerve ? so long j-ten-ner
  6. Nae, that must be a fake statistic. My service representative at the dealership keeps telling me that she has never heard of an oil consumption problem with the GMT900 trucks. so long j-ten-ner
  7. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    Last Saturday. Oil change, tire rotation, front brake job. so long j-ten-ner
  8. Soon you'll be able to pay the mortgage with your truck.... so long j-ten-ner
  9. What do you think GM will charge you for a 600+hp truck? so long j-ten-ner
  10. Looks like it's still on the table. Go to 12:25 so long j-ten-ner
  11. In my opinion, it's about time to draw the line and leave the hp and torque to the tuners. I'd rather see the manufacturers to concentrate on rust proof frames, fuel economy and durability. so long j-ten-ner
  12. Or they have something up the sleeve. so long j-ten-ner
  13. Maybe GM is going the same way as Mercedes ;) http://www.autotrader.ca/expert/20150414/test-drive-2015-mercedes-benz-gl-350-bluetec/ Quote: "But Mercedes-Benz has a unique strategy, at least amongst its SUVs. In Canada, its BlueTec diesels are the base engine in its three most traditional SUVs: the squarish GLK, the mid-size ML, and the full-size GL seven-seater tested here. So the GL 350 BlueTec starts at $1,100 less than the $79,500 GL 450 that offers a slightly thirstier but much more powerful gasoline V6. In these luxury segments that means that Mercedes-Benz’s diesels are just barely priced lower than base gas engines, a strategy that saw 79.3 percent of Mercedes-Benz’s light truck sales in 2014 consist of Bluetec diesel models." so long j-ten-ner
  14. If people would just stop demanding that the next generation of trucks is 1/10 of a second faster and bigger than the previous one, maybe we wouldn't have to deal with AFM and similar. It's far fetched, I know. so long j-ten-ner
