Supply-demand may be an issue with price negotiation, but I agree $45k seems high. Then again, I see them around here with over 150k miles for $30k. Diesels are great for towing daily. I didn't see the need, so stuck with gas. We had an "unexpected trailer upgrade" this year. Already owned the gas 2500 Denali. Nice looking combo JG. either way - you will see a HUGE difference in towing/stability with the HD pickup over a 1500. I'll never go back to a half-ton.
I have a 2019 gasser. Had a 2015 gasser. I tow about 4X a year too. Daily driver to work. I didn't think diesel was worth extra upfront or maintenance costs. If I towed daily or ran a business, probably go diesel. Wasn't a fit for my needs, so I stuck with gas.
Are they cut off, or were the rails simply removed? Hard to say. I just had a gooseneck ball installed for our 5th wheel. My 2500 is a pavement princess most of the time, so unlikely with 50k that it was all towing. We tow like 3-4 times a year and season camp the rest of the time. If balance of truck seems clean and well kept, I wouldn't over-think it.
Nice. As far as gain - our TT is about same weight, and I think I have it set at 6.5. I adjusted so I can just barely tell trailer brakes engage. Braking should feel about same as without trailer. No pushing, and trailer isn't dragging truck to a stop.
We've bought 5 cars from my buddy, so take that for what it's worth. I paid $52k. They were going to list it for $55k, but since it was a turn and burn (quick sale), he got General Manager to discount it. It's also a gas engine - which is rare in a Denali HD.
So...slightly unplanned upgrade I had a 2015 Silverado 2500 LT. With some of the current incentives and 0% possibility, I talked to a buddy at local GMC dealer. Plan was to buy a 2020 Sierra WT with optionsI wanted. He called and I ended up with a freshly traded 2019 Denali HD with 13k miles (Gas). Not what my intention was, but I'm not disappointed!
ewbldavis replied to Carolina's topic in 6.6L Gas V8 & HD Transmission Powertrain (L8T/MYD)How is it off the line with the 3.73? Can't beat the 4.10 when pulling from a light - but drooling over the 2020's.
I think you bring a fair statement to the table. I'll admit - I had a middle-road Sierra 1500 with a few goodies. Not essential to me. I'll also admit as fine as I'd be with a WT, I do like having many of those same non-essentials in my 2500 LT. Some of the gripes I think are legit, though. As whiny as it is, if you pay cold hard cash for an option, it should f'g work. It is nice to get some posh items, even if on an HD. As far as AFM and that garbage, folks should quit whining. I hated it on my 1500 anyway. You don't by an HD for fuel economy. I get 11MPG average, 13 on a good day. I wouldn't mind better MPG, but that's not why I bought it.
