  1. Possibly, with the new Raptor R coming to take on the TRX, but I'm not holding my breath. GM is scared of their own shadow.
  2. Seats are one of those things that are just about 100% individual dependent and are going to involve some degree of trial and error. My advice would be to rent or use Turo and just try out a bunch of vehicles for weekend road trips.
  3. The 6.2 is a great engine, but the 8-speed it may be saddled to is kind of crap. 6.2 isn't going to be a huge help towing, you'll run of out frame and suspension before you run out of motor.
  4. Definitely worth waiting for. Even if you don't like the updated interior, the older style (2022 LTD) will likely be selling at a discount once the refresh rolls out.
  5. If you adjust for inflation they've never really been all that cheap
  6. Third this. Those warranty companies will use any excuse to deny coverage. They will also exclude certain components in the fine print.
  7. GM is a company with probably the best engineering division in the world completely hamstrung by out-of-touch management who make decisions by focus group and have weird internal rules.
  8. The Raptor has outsold the Corvette every year since 2009. Yet, it's still profitable for GM to build those on a bespoke chassis in their own assembly plant, probably sharing the least with the rest of the fleet out of anything. So, you'd figure tweaking a platform they sell almost 1M a year to be a bit better off road and sharing a ton of parts with that same vehicle shouldn't break the bank. I'm not saying the ZR2 is a bad truck. It looks great and is a solid competitor to the Tremor, Rebel, and TRD Pro. However, it's still not at the level of the Raptor or TRX. There is room in the market for a ZR8 or whatever you want to call a top end halo truck with an LS7. It would get people into the show rooms, if price was a bit out of their budget, they'd go home with a ZR2 or Trail Boss. That's how halo vehicles work.
  9. Other automakers operate the exact same way, yet they still manage to launch with better interiors
  10. I’m still not over dropping Cocoa/Dune interiors. If I wanted to be ensconced in all black, I’d become a mortician. This new interior upgrade looks great, I just question whey they weren’t launched with it. GM management never misses a beat to miss a beat.
  11. Nice to see the interiors are finally back to 2018 levels of quality
  12. I've been saying this for years, GM is missing a major chance to print money with an LS7 powered Raptor fighter.
  13. The problem I see is with no power upgrade, on a modified suspension with big tires, it's going to be a hard sell. The 6.2 is a fantastic engine, but it's no match for TRX or upcoming Raptor R V8, especially with the modifications.
