Well now we know the TFL 2020 Silverado 1500 3.0 Duramax 2wd has a maximum tow rating of 7,600 lbs. And that your RST trim level 2020 Silverado 1500 3.0 Duramax has a door sticker rating of over 9,000 lbs. All I'm saying is, it would be nice if GM had the "trailering guides" posted for the new 3.0 Duramax!
I'm confused, there are two tow ratings in print for the new 2020 Duramax 1500 Silverado. TFL truck published: "...with a maximum tow rating of 7,600 pounds. When properly equipped , the latest Chevy Silverado 1500 diesel can tow up to 9,300 pounds." So what makes a 2020 Silverado 1500 3.0 Duramax "properly equipped" to tow 9,300 pounds? I would only guess 2wd vs 4wd or the cab configurations and is there an optional rear gear ratio?? I can't find any 2020 GM Trailing guides for the 3.0 Silverado, maybe someone else has this info? Thanks
The picture that was posted is worth a million words...IMO I never fully liked our truck's capless design. I don't like seeing dirt and water collecting near the fill inlet. I would rather have the old gas cap type unless GM re-designs their capless neck to seal better or have a better sealing gas door system. They won't because of cost, so thats why I'll go backwards with the screw on gas cap neck at some point.
Not sure why GM engineered a diesel engine oil pump drive belt to last only 150K miles? The Engineer's were up front speaking about the design of this new Duramax engine, but when I heard about the limit on the oil pump drive belt it was a big "red flag" for me. I think the 3.0 Duramax engine with the 10 speed transmission sounds almost too good to be true. We will see, only time and miles will prove its reliability, that said I can't wait to test drive one!
Congrads on your new truck!!! What color did you get, it looks different in the sun with blue sky than in the shade, I like it. How is the 10 speed now that you have a few hundred miles on the truck? Do you plan on towing with this truck?? Thanks
