    2018 Sierra SLTZ71
  1. Bought a new LT Z71

    Very nice, congrats!
  2. Yeah, my 2018 does it too, curious as to what it is but figured it's normal, makes sense if it's emissions related.
  3. 2014+ Gas Mileage (MPG) Topic

    I'm on a road trip from Arkansas to Florida, my 2018 CC Z71 with 6.2 and 3.23 gears and BFG KO2 275/60r20 tires averaged 20.2 mpg over 1050 miles (computer was showing 21.5). I'm running 93 octane and cruise was set between 70 and 75 for most of the trip. Odometer was around 5,500 miles when I left, around 6,800 right now. I'm gonna check the mileage on the way back too.
  4. Is the seat option turned on in your settings for LDA? I've got mine turned off because I don't like it, you can turn it on and off.
  5. Is 6.2 worth $3700 extra?

    Congrats, good choice!
  6. 3:23 towing and rating ?

  7. 3:23 towing and rating ?

    You'll have to ask GM lol. And 5.3 8-speed with enhanced towing package is 11,000 lbs.
  8. 3:23 towing and rating ?

    12,500 lb tow rating is for crewcab 2wd 6.2 engine with 3.42 gears.
  9. 3:23 towing and rating ?

    It depends on the configuration of the truck, regular cab, double cab, crew cab, 2wd, 4wd. Google 2018 GMC Sierra Owners manual, all the tow ratings are listed in the owners manual. Crewcab 4WD with short box and 6.2 engine is rated at 9,100 lbs same as the same truck with the 5.3 engine and 3.42 gears.
  10. Is 6.2 worth $3700 extra?

    True, 6.0 is a great engine.
  11. Is 6.2 worth $3700 extra?

    Surprisingly enough mine was purchased through the company I work for and came with a 5year/100K mile fleet purchase powertrain warranty. 36K mile warranty is ridiculous! My 2014 Ram 5.7 had to have lifters and cam replaced at 75K miles, it's sad nobody can built a bullet proof engine anymore.
  12. Is 6.2 worth $3700 extra?

    My boss runs regular in his Yukon XL Denali, no way I'm not running premium in my truck! I'm too OCD about engine noise and in my brain it's pinging on non premium gas (even if it's only in my head).
  13. 3:08 gears in 6.2 ...huh?

    The online window stickers for all the trucks I've looked at online are generic and don't show all the included options, the online window sticker for my truck showed 3.08 gears for the 5.3 under standard equipment and showed the 6.2 option, the actual window sticker shows the 3.23 ratio as an included option. I didn't think the 3.08 was an option with the 6.2.
