    2020 GMC 3500HD SRW 6.6L Gas (Once it's Released)
  1. So just lift it 2" again and now put in 4 10's
  2. Just remember to take those sizes under caution. Crutchfield has been known to be inaccurate on some vehicles in the past.
  3. You'll still have 4" left. just put 2" in the front and 2" in the back using the new cameras. P.S. Trying really hard not to post the all "inches" comments I have in my head right now.
  4. Same media website linked above. There is A LOT of information there: EXTERIOR DIMENSIONS Regular Cab Double Cab Crew Cab Wheelbase (in. / mm): 141.5 / 3595 (long box) 149.4 / 3795 (std. box) 162.4 / 4127 (long box) 158.9 / 4037 (std. box) 172 / 4369 (long box) Overall Length (in. / mm): 235.5 / 5982 (long box) 240.4 / 6107 (std. box) 256.4 / 6514 (long box) 250 / 6349 (std. box) 266 / 6756 (long box) Overall Width (in. / mm): 81.9 / 2079 (SRW) 96.7 / 2457 (DRW) 81.9 / 2079 (SRW) 96.7 / 2457 (DRW) 81.9 / 2079 (SRW) 96.7 / 2457 (DRW) Overall Height (in. / mm): 79.8 / 2027 79.8 / 2027 79.8 / 2027 Front Track (in. / mm): 68.1 / 1731 68.1 / 1731 68.1 / 1731 Rear Track (in. / mm): 68.3 / 1736 (SRW) 75 / 1905 (DRW) 68.3 / 1736 (SRW) 75 / 1905 (DRW) 68.3 / 1736 (SRW) 75 / 1905 (DRW)
  5. I'm curious if the seat is a little longer in the 2019 since they added 3" to the back compartment overall length. a longer seat could add between .25 and .75 cuft inside a sub box, depending on how wide it is. I'm looking to put in 4 DC Audio M3 8" subs, so this would be great news if they did lengthen the seats.
  6. Aluminum?

    According to the interviews I've seen with the GM engineers, yes they will.
  7. Even if it isn't released for HD trucks, someone will figure out how to put it into a 1500 just to say that they did.
  8. 6.6 gas

    The reason I asked the MPG question is that my wife and I are looking to buy a 5th wheel RV with a loaded pin weight of about 3000-3100 pounds. The 2020 2500HD wouldn't give me enough payload to pull that, me and DW, and my tools. So I'm looking at the 2020 GMC 3500HD (SRW) with the 6.6L gas. However... This will also be my daily driver as well...... in Atlanta, GA traffic. The last truck I owned was before the kids came along and it was a 1992 extended cab step side Silverado 1500 with a V6. I'm just trying to figure out how much it's going to hurt when I go to the pump and how often I will need to, even with a 36-gallon tank.

    Thanks for the info!

    Just out of curiosity (and trying to obtain knowledge): If anyone has had a 2500HD or 3500HD with the 6.0 gas engine, did you ever measure your MPG? If so, could you post what you got for your City, Highway, and/or Combined MPG?
  11. The poor choice observation is based on the negative press that Chevy has already received so early before their actual release. This is bad for any product release from any company. Chevy's design decision based on their focus groups has now made marketing and selling the new HD's an uphill struggle to get over this bad press in an attempt to make the design a success. The sales numbers will later determine if they were able to overcome the early negativity and get past this or if their initial decision ends up turning from poor to costly.

    Way to 'Ram home' a point.
  13. The problem with focus groups is that you only take the opion of a very, very, very, very small group of people compared to the total amount of people that will buy the product. This is true of any industry and I have seen it bite many a company in the wallet. Get the wrong people in the group and you are now bent over a log wondering how you got there. Of course, the marketing guy is going to say it doesn't matter because he thinks people will buy it. If a design team gives you (as a marketer) rubber poop to sell as a table decoration, it's now your job to convince people that looking at [email protected] on a table is classy for family get-togethers. But to base a multimillion-dollar redesign with a complete retool on that small group's opinion is reckless without doing extensive research after the initial group weighs in. Either way, the group at Chevrolet that chose the selection of designs to present to this 'focus group' are still ultimately responsible for this backlash because they thought it was a design worth presenting in the first place. With all the cuts GM just made, someone should have thought, "Maybe this isn't the time to do something polarizing. Maybe since people like the 2019 1500 front design, we should stick closer to that and make changes in other areas to set it apart." Apparently, someone at GMC had that thought. To be clear I'm not saying that if you like the redesigned Chevy that you are wrong. I'm saying that from a business perspective, the Chevrolet division of GM trucks made some poor choices before releasing a new product to the public.
