Personally I would love to see a HD Duramax between the 3.0 and 6.6. I don't really need something that tows 30,000lbs. If you could get me a smaller Duramax rated for say 15,000lbs, but got 25 MPG highway empty, I would definitely sell my 2020 Duramax for that. Most likely there is not enough price difference between the gas and current diesel to justify a smaller diesel, but a guy can dream.
I have the exact same issue. If I put some body weight on the door it will stop. But driving down a bumpy road makes this truck sound like a box of marbles with the door and steering column making noises. I'm hoping GM has a fix for this soon. My 10 year old Silverado I traded in didn't make this much noise with over 100,000 miles. Other than the noises, I absolutely love the truck.
F7Rider replied to Foldbak's topic in 6.6L Duramax Diesel & Allison Powertrain (L5P/MGM)If you go to the website of the plant that builds them, it says on the site they test every single engine they build. Kind of crazy. I would have never guessed they would dyno every engine either. https://www.dmaxengines.com/about-dmax/
Everyone's situation is different. But for me, I looked at a 10 year old truck. That's how long I plan to keep my 2020. NADA value shows a diesel being worth $7000 more than gas. It only cost me $6000 more to buy the diesel upfront (rebate/employee discount). I do not need a diesel for my current camper (8000lbs). But now if I decide to upgrade my camper, I do not have to worry about weights. I can just buy the camper I want knowing I have the truck to pull it. For my situation, my want for a diesel was the major deciding factor. It also helps that my father-in-law was a Chevy dealership diesel mechanic for 20 years before starting a job at General Motors a couple years ago (Cheap labor, haha).
