  1. You need to learn more about the differences between gasoline and diesel, and how fuel is produced. Diesel is not dirtier because "big oil" is keeping it dirty and keeping "high quality clean burning fuel" out of our hands. "Diesel" is a specific cut (boiling point range) of crude oil, and is naturally "dirtier" to burn than gasoline because diesel is a heavier cut (higher boiling point, i.e. containing larger more complex molecules that break apart in nastier ways when combusted) than gasoline. There is no way around that- it is chemistry. Gasoline will always naturally burn cleaner than diesel just as natural gas, which is a lighter than gasoline, will always burn cleaner than gasoline. To make diesel fuel cleaner (i.e. ultra low sulfur diesel) requires more processing. So you are either going to pay at the pump or pay when purchasing the engine with all the complex emissions equipment. It is the trucking industry, not big oil, that pushes for cheaper but dirtier diesel fuel btw.
  2. T1 Refresh

    My guess would be an interior upgrade, as that is where most of the negative attention from professional reviewers has been.
  3. Demuro - 2019 Review

    Doug DeMuro can be entertaining, but saying he does the "best car reviews" on YouTube is a huuugggeee stretch. What he does barely even qualifies as a review. He rarely rips apart any car, especially a brand new one, unless it is just out of this world noncompetitive (like the Mercedes Metris). He is focused on his brand of entertainment.
  4. Disappointed with 2019

    If that part of the steering wheel is hitting your head in an accident you have more serious issues to worry about.
  5. I was just about to say, I'm not sure if he being sarcastic or something? The 2nd gen Dodge Ram was hugely popular from the get go and very well received. That generation is what really put Dodge/Ram on the map in the segment and why they are not a has been.
  6. Sadly I can't find much to disagree with in this review. The lower and mid spec trims of the GM twins are fine, but the luxury trims like the Denali are sorely lacking compared to Ford and Ram. Which would be fine if the GM twins were significantly cheaper in those luxury trims...but they are not.
  7. Disappointed with 2019

    Not helping is Chevy's apparent total lack of interest in marketing the truck to the public, most of whom are probably completely unaware that they can buy a 2019 today. I mean I can go and build a Ford Ranger, a truck not even out yet, on Ford.com knowing all the exact options/packages/pricing and yet we still have to fumble around on GM employee/family discount websites to get exact specifics on the Silverado.
  8. As far as I am aware it just beeps, it is just an alert, not an assist. It would be fantastic if Chevy would finally update their consumer 2019 Silverado site and B&P tool, but I guess getting good access to easily readable information on a truck you can buy on a lot today is not a priority for GM.
  9. Toyota doesn't have the sales volume to justify updating the Tundra as much as Ford/GM/Ram do with their trucks (well, typically do in the case of Ram. Chrysler's troubles ~8-10 years ago meant they took a long time to release a new Ram 1500). The Tundra is a product that really only works in North America, and shares very little with other global vehicles that Toyota uses other than the Sequoia, which again like the Tundra is really only suited for Norther America and gets creamed (like everyone) by the Tahoe/Suburban/Yukon/Escalade. Toyota still has a smaller but loyal customer base in the truck market though that is keeping the Tundra sales steady, and profits on the truck are probably now high because it is 10 years old and paid off.
  10. For comparison, $36,325 in 2007 is just under $44k in today's money. Inflation is a wonderful thing. If you actually paid $30,000 then you are also comparing out the door price with the new model's MSRP, because that window sticker gives an MSRP of $36,325. $6000 is not a rounding error. 2019+ Silverados will be discounted from MSRP, just like past models.
  11. Those are just standard blank switches because the truck isn't equip with the feature that would normally use those switches. Looking at High Country interior photos/videos from the Detroit auto show the leftmost blank switch is likely the switch for the lane keeping assist system. What the symbol on the rightmost switch means is not immediately jumping to me, it appears to be for deactivating or turning something off though.
