magnum74 started following Live From The 2020 Silverado HD Media Introduction, What is your 2020's ACTUAL Payload?, Beware installing a lift or bigger tires on your T1 ! and and 7 others
GM really nailed the 2500 capacities.
I don't lift my truck or care about the lift lifestyle but I have several local dealers shoveling new ones out door with 35's and 6" to 9" lifts. They must be doing something to satisfy the speedo.
There is definitely a trend of elite trying to rid the world of fuel. It's hard to take them seriously when you look at their lifestyles and carbon footprints. Didn't one of them make a comment about how plane fares should be increased to reduce flying, as in only the wealthy would be able to afford flight? They've been building electric vehicles for decades at this point and they've not caught on. They aren't realistic for the masses or cross country travel and flight. I think what is realistic are better hybrids including pickups. What will the cost and footprint be for every house to have a charge port or for charging stations equivalent to gas stations? Until you can charge a car/pickup battery in less than 5 minutes on the road and get 400miles of range these will remain a niche for those who do short trips in cities or for those who want them as second vehicles. Hybrids make much more sense for the average person on a day to day basis. Why don't the elite push for top notch hybrids to compliment gasoline engines instead of trying to totally turn the world upside down? This will come at our expense and not theirs.
It's fascinating how guys will trade in perfectly good trucks for something they don't want. I'm pretty sure I saw a thread here the other day about somebody wondering if they can add the safety seat to a model that doesn't have it. I've also seen many times the same thing with tow mirrors, guy absolutely must have the truck right now and will pay an obscene amount to install the mirrors when they arrive later. To each their own but why not just wait until the right one arrives or simply order one to your liking? These things cost too much to compromise.
https://www.capitalgmcbuick.ca/2020-Sierra-HD These aren't yet in inventory but they created a specific link for the 2020's they have on the way along with which ones are reserved. Each unit shows stock number, drive-line, color and main option packages. No pricing, though.
The high end trims will be first off the line so you'll have to wait a bit.
One thing I noticed is bucket seats are a stand alone option on the LT whereas there is no bucket seat option of the 1500 LT (aside from a TB), at least not on a 2019 1500.
Just for reference, the K2's do have an issue with a rattle or click you experienced. There's a metal plate with 4 screws behind the hood latch and they have a tendency to come loose and cause a sound like you describe. It's easy to fix and lock tight solves it for good.
I've said it before but they're doing everything in their power to make sure to send their loyal customers to the competition for a good look. The heated rear seats and vents have been standard fare on the competition for years. Imagine paying almost $90K for a 2020 Denali HD and with no adjustable pedals. Who are the yes men approving this strategy?
GM's stock photos in general leave a lot to be desired. I agree the real time shots of the truck are much better than what GM provides the media.
magnum74 replied to gearheadesw's topic in 2020 Chevy Silverado HD & GMC Sierra HD (2500/3500)I'd guess that the 10-speed is max 2 years away or possibly 2021. Either case, 3.73 should be more than fine. The dyno curve on this engine really puts the L96 in it's place. I'll drive one before I pass judgment but on paper it obliterates the outgoing engine.
I wouldn't accept it. Make them build you a different one.
