magnum74 started following 6.6L GAS for 2010HD?, New 2020 HD models have a bumper type step by cab ?, Rear window leak and and 6 others
magnum74 replied to f8l vnm's topic in 2019 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraShould they be smaller like a 1500?
Basically no difference. Also, Ram with 3.92's might have been more comparable to a 5.3/3.23's but there's no way to substantiate it from these results. Maybe if the Ecoboost had 4.56 gears it would slayed, who knows.
I remember my dads 81' F150 leaking from the quarter window and watching it trickle down the door onto the rubber floor and not effecting anything. These new trucks are disasters waiting to happen in so many ways.
Here's shootout results from pickuptrucks.com done in a controlled environment. The results will surprise and go against the narrative of many here. I'm also surprised this hasn't been posted yet unless I missed it. https://news.pickuptrucks.com/2018/11/2018-best-half-ton-truck-challenge-how-we-tested.html A flaw in this shootout is that one of the GM's should've been a 5.3/3.23 to see how it would've stacked up especially to the Hemi/3.92. Hemi trucks are fun to drive because they set it up to be aggressive but SOTP is different than real results. You can cherry pick all day long in but there's nothing like all the trucks being run at the same time, same place with the same driver to remove the variables.
magnum74 replied to Sierra Dan's topic in 2019 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI've posted elsewhere on this site that in my area there are some Ram dealers with huge amounts of new 17', 18' and 19's all at massive discounts. It's a great way to boost sales figures but probably not good for long term health and definitely not good for resale value.
I like the Trailboss, Custom and I also like that you can outfit a WT with most tech options now including a Trailboss lift. In my humble opinion a WT with the Z71 and tech add on's is probably the only model that really goes head to head with the others comparables. I don't hate the truck and I am really starting to like the looks of the Silverado but they have'nt done anything to make me feel like running out and buying one. It's obvious they're going for profit over choice. It's probably good for GM but not great for the consumer who wants to outfit a truck to their liking. I don't know what to think of it. I'm glad to hear of the new 6.6 gas HD but based on the new 1500 I know I'll be looking at all of them very closely in a couple years whe nI replace mine.
There's a dolt on YouTube that's been speculating massive numbers. There's nothing official. He also said that GM will not be introducing a new engine and will carryover the 6.0. Having said this there's no question that Ford will make sure they have a bigger number. They know who their market is regardless if performs better or not. Hell, if it looks like a better deal me I'll get a 7.3 but the Duramax has proved for years that numbers on paper mean nothing.

Still not up on the Canadian site but I checked it out. I was able to build a WT crew with a Z71, safety package along with all the sensors among other things. I like the direction they've gone with WT flexibility. Custom looks great, too.
magnum74 replied to Sierra Dan's topic in 2019 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraThe 18's are discounted the same at this dealer and the 19's into the $14-$15K range for Laramie and up models. This is a great way to grab market share and if I was looking for half ton today I'd likely get one of these but it's impossible to think that this is a sustainable business model. How many of these 17's will end up at an auction? If this was only one dealer doing it or a fleet cancellation sobeit but there's several dealers with excess stock in the Edmonton region practically giving them away like this. The second you sign the dotted line on your 17', 18' or 19' Ram it's worthless here. Nissan did the exact same thing and ordered way too many XD's and it took well into the third model year to clear out the excess. Now, they have a handful of XD's and most of them are gas. It's a great market for the comsumer to get a cheap Hemi/8-speed truck, though. No argument there.
This the first tidbit of info seen on a new HD gasser. It will be interesting how the Big 3 match up with their new options. Attach an 87 octane 6.6 to the rumored 9-speed Allison and we have a winner in my world.
