Pastusak.t replied to bharris515's topic in 2020 Chevy Silverado HD & GMC Sierra HD (2500/3500)Looks like they changed their minds. Would look better with painted caps. Probably cost cutting.
Pastusak.t replied to gearheadesw's topic in 6.6L Gas V8 & HD Transmission Powertrain (L8T/MYD)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.
Pastusak.t replied to gearheadesw's topic in 6.6L Gas V8 & HD Transmission Powertrain (L8T/MYD)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.
Yeah... the 2020 1500’s have it. So maybe the 2021 hd’s will too.
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.
Wow. Can’t wait to see one in person. Really wanting an at4
Pastusak.t replied to brclark82's topic in 2020 Chevy Silverado HD & GMC Sierra HD (2500/3500)Wow... those are ugly. They must belong on the silverado. But seriously I hope you don’t have to pay extra for those!
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.
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.
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.

I also heard one of the engineers say it but can’t locate the video right now.
It’s amazing that not a single person at the dealership has any idea about the features of one of the largest volume models chevy sells. Just proves that the consumer has to educate themselves cause the people there to “help” don’t have a f”&[email protected]@$) clue!
Pastusak.t replied to DTB's topic in 2020 Chevy Silverado HD & GMC Sierra HD (2500/3500)Hahahahah... someone at GMC screwed up... they have taken the photo down from gmc.com. Guess it wasn’t supposed to be released yet. Supposedly they are revealing at the Houston auto show at 7:15pm. We’ll see.
I don’t think NAIAS is what it used to be. Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Volvo, Porsche, Jaguar, Land Rover all skipped the show this year. I believe manufacturers are all deciding to reveal their new models on their own and avoid having to compete for attention. Just my observation but I don’t think GM dropped the ball... Yet
