  1. Thanks for all the feedback guys... I’m pretty sure I’m gonna go gas but may hold out to see if the put in the 10spd next year. My truck only has 29k miles on it and I don’t need to get a new one right this second. I’ll see where incentives go and maybe see how the first year of the 6.6 L8T goes. Prices of these things have almost gotten out of hand.
  2. How’s your mpg been on the new 6.6? Haven’t really found much info on them in the real world yet.
  3. Gasser seems to be the way to go... plus there’s a lot of towing tech on the higher trims that would be advantageous when I do tow. I just really which they put the 10 speed on the new 6.6 gas. Maybe 2021
  4. I’m not asking about gas vs diesel... we all know the diesel pulls better. Let’s not turn this into one of the countless other threads about that. What I want to know is, if you had xxxxxx dollars to spend and those dollars can get get you a fully loaded Denali gasser or a decently optioned SLE diesel, which would you buy? I drive about 3 miles per day to and from work. I tow about 10000 lbs maybe 8-10 times during the summer. (Family trips to the lake.) I know I’d love the diesel for towing but I also know I’d love the tech and options for my daily driving. I have a 2016 6.0 SLE now and put maybe 8k miles a year on the truck. What would you do?
  5. My average tank on my 6.0 is 11.2 and it’s mostly in town. I’d say 80% in town. But even on the hwy unloaded I’d be lucky to see 14/14.5 mpg. So 16.7 sounds a lot better.
  6. Looks like they changed their minds. Would look better with painted caps. Probably cost cutting.
  7. Was that 9.8mpg towing your travel trailer? And at what speed do you normally tow if it was. I can get about 8 mpg towing 9000lbs doing about 60-63 mph in a 2016 6.0. If you can get 9.8 at 70 that’d be a pretty decent boost in fuel economy.
  8. I drove one the other day. It was a LT Silverado. I drive a 16 6.0 gmc sle now and I can say you can definitely feel the extra torque. How that will translate into towing I’m not sure but I could tell a difference. I also notice that the truck over all seemed much more fleshed out, or smoother. On the short drive I took, the transmission shifted extremely smooth and I couldn’t feel any driveline clunk like I get in mine sometimes. (That could be because it’s brand new.) I got on the highway and was doing 85 without realizing it (also no Chevy shake at all). I only drove about 25 miles so I didn’t really get a good sense of the mpg, plus the truck only had 5 miles on it when we left so mpg is probably not that great yet. Overall I was impressed by it. I really want to compare towing with my travel trailer, hoping the 6.6 will out perform my 6.0. I am optimistic and if they throw a 10 speed behind it I’ll trade the 6.0 in pretty quickly.
  9. Yeah... the 2020 1500’s have it. So maybe the 2021 hd’s will too.
  10. My same thoughts. I have a 16 gasser now. I just want the 10 speed and adaptive cruise and I’ll probably pull the trigger.
  11. Wow. Can’t wait to see one in person. Really wanting an at4
  12. Wow... those are ugly. They must belong on the silverado. But seriously I hope you don’t have to pay extra for those!
  13. So I am starting think that the press release About them lowering to starting price of sle trim was to distract us from the 10k increase to the Denali trim. I’m starting to see dealer lots listing their incoming stock. Lots of Denali and at4’s. Most have an msrp of 80-83 grand. That’s almost 14% up from last gen. I get that top trims will cost more but does the new Denali have 10k more than the last Denali. And we can’t say that it’s stronger and bigger and tows more because the new slt/sle/work truck’s are stronger, bigger and tows more. I guess 10k is the going rate for integrated tpms, 15 cameras and a heads up display.
  14. I imagine that this was domino’s idea. They probably said we’ll give you a small kick back for adding our app and GM was like “Oh hell ya!” Money is money after all.
  15. Inflation is 3% per year. 53k in 2010 is 57600 in 2015. Add that 6.2 your up to 61k. Then factor in all the options on your truck that weren’t even available in 2010. It may still be slightly more but not 20%. As for the transaction prices.... when you compare crew cab denali’s and at4’s (which is all that was available for most of the year) to a full range of trims and cabs, of course they will be higher. Once the reg cab wt and sle’s start getting factored in I’m willing to bet it won’t be much different than previous gen.
