BobHancock replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomCorrect. It revolves around me.
I suspect the idea is not patented so maybe Chevy can figure out how to do this without using Ford's method? Anyway, my point is that it's something useful rather than just another sunroof. And while I'm at it I notice that more Chevy trucks have the 6.2 engine which is good....the market is speaking. What they also need is magnetorheological dampers like my last GMC had. Can't be a patent issue can it?
BobHancock replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomWell Chevy woke up! I had to get a 2017 GMC Denali with 6.2 and magnetic suspension because Chevy didn't have it when I tried the Tahoe/YukonNonTruck class of vehicle which I found out is not for me. Now I have a 2018 Z71/LTZ with the 6.2 but still no magnetic suspension. This must be some kind of GM marketing tool and is dumber than dumb imho of course.
No adaptive cruise, no magnetorheliological suspension, and a face that looks like a Star Wars Storm Trooper in white. I had the first two in a GMC Denali and grew to like those features. No reason Chevy can't do the same. I'll bet it's some kind of corporate decision. I'd like to hear Bob Lutz expound on this. Other than that, the 10-speed and less weight would be nice but not enough to tempt me away from my current ride.
BobHancock replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomMy 2018 GMC Denali had Magnetic Ride Control adaptive damping suspension. Why don't these Chevy trucks have this?
BobHancock replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomI did quite well starting with Suppliers pricing for vets, GM Card $3000 plus GM $1000 plus customer $1000 from dealer on a 2018 LTZ Z71. 15.7% from MSRP. GM financing was nothing to brag about but I'll refinance if I can. K
Very interesting discussion. I didn't know my truck had ANC until a friend riding with me remarked several times how quiet the truck is. Then I looked at the spec sheet which says it has ANC and now I know it's for engine noise between 550 and 3000 rpm.
BobHancock replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomMy Grand Cherokee could be disabled by unplugging the wire that said the hood was not latched. After several iterations the bell would stop but the light would stay on. At least that's what someone said on the Jeep forum. I just turned it off every start. Just got into the habit like buckling the seat belt. No big deal. I did hear that Jeep was going to take that option away. Can't confirm. That would be a deal breaker for me. Stop Start is annoying at best. Kinda like having a 6th grade soccer team in the back seat. 😆
BobHancock replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomThe engines and suspensions will be interesting. The lack of power of the 5.3 makes me spend an extra $2k to get the 6.2. I test drove a new Tahoe twice trying to like the 5.3 again and bought the GMC because they had 6.2 and magnetic ride control.
BobHancock replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomThis is an LT, not an LTZ or High Country. I would guess the Trail Boss shown is not really a "top trim line" as stated. You all know how they do this. The tempting first looks are never all we will get. And since I won't be one to take a $50K + truck into serious dirt, I'll be looking for something a bit more tame. My list of GOTTA HAVES is short, 6.2liter engine, Magnetic Ride Control suspension, which is why I didn't get a Tahoe, and bought a Yukon. All the else is fine tuning as I sit with dealer at the order table.
