  1. Ford also sells many more higher trim HD trucks, not just fleet. Many contractors, farmers, etc, not to mention people that tow campers and such. The trucks are family haulers as well. GM should have introduced both new gas engine options at the same time. They'd have been a step ahead of Ford and Ram, instead of playing catch-up. Any news on when the build and (maybe) price will be up?
  2. They have to start slapping before than can do it more. GM can't even come close to the HD sales of Ford. GM is the one getting slapped, no, beaten around for years. GM has had so much potential with their trucks, yet they skimped and skimped. I went Ford on my last truck due to the room and options. Now, GM had made the 2020s quite roomy, and that's a good thing. They've added some features and new powertrains and tech. However, they took stuff away and failed to add other stuff that's readily available on the competition and GM's own SUVs. I'm looking forward to checking out the new HD in person, but I'm keeping all options open.
  3. Agreed. If wanting to lower the whole thing to that point, one should already know there is a hitch there and not to open it to begin with. #heresyoursign
  4. I've been wondering the same thing. A late spring/early summer for the CC models would be nice. The other configurations may be later in summer.
  5. Someone in another thread said that GM has stopped production on all 2019 HD trucks and are doing an early changeover to the new models. I remember something else about 2019 being a short run, but can't find it. Can anyone confirm?
  6. I can deal with the High Country over the LT, but I want to see an LTZ.
  7. My 2014 was an LTZ with the 40/20/40 seat. Didn't mind it at all. Had plenty of storage when I needed it and an extra seat when I needed it.
  8. Nice truck, Block. CC standard bed is the way to go! 👍

    Are these lights similar to the spot lights in the tow mirrors of my F250 and Silverado 2500HD? I have a button to turn each side on/off. They are on camper mirrors, so there may be some difference. They help light an area to the sideand rear of the truck.
  10. 2020 model details

    The new interiors with the contrasting colors look much better than the black interiors. I think it's mainly due to the lack of gray/silver trim around the center stack.

    Many were hoping for a return of rain sense wipers and adjustable pedals, also.
  12. This trim looks nice. The LT, not so much. The LTZ should be interesting, as well as the Sierra. When I bought my Ford, it was mainly for the room and features. These new trucks have the room and some features, but will they have them all, and at what price point? GM doesn't have any trim to compete with a Platinum (Ford) or a Limited (Ram). The High Country and Denali would be comparable to the King Ranch and Laramie Longhorn.
  13. I sure hope the LTZ and High Country have better front end treatment. Like the earlier post, the truck looks good except for the straight-on view. Any news on the GMC yet?
  14. Wonder when they'll put real tow mirrors on the Max Tow? Perhaps when they 2020 2500HD trucks are in production?
  15. Very good point. My current truck is a F-250 Platinum. I went Ford mainly for the room with having kids, plus the added tech and features the truck had. When the new GM 2500s come out, I'll give them a look, but I'm not gonna pay a premium price just because they have a roomier interior. If the new 2500 trucks lack the same tech the others have, the price best be much lower than a comparable RAM or FORD top line trim, or they won't get considered.
