I AGREE 100%.... Seems like every redesign makes the trucks bigger and bigger.... To the point where a Colorado is just about the same size as my 88 1500 was... To that point, that one of the biggest reasons I dislike my 2018 and will be selling it, it just feels too big for me , I feel like im swimming in it.. Currently looking for a GMT-800 to replace with...Just don't want the "superior technology" or size of these new trucks.....
I have to admit.. If something were to happen to my 18, and i have to buy a new truck I would be buying a RAM over a GM.. I sat in one at a dealership awhile back , checked everything out and thought they are wayyy more comfortable and the interior has a better layout... My biggest hangup is the dial shifter, its just dumb.. But in my opinion i think the 2019 RAM looks much better than either of the 19s that GM came out with... Oh yeah, I really dislike the big touch screen on those rams anyway... Thats one option i would definitely not want Although, I do have to say I do have thoughts about trading my Sierra in for a Durango SRT....cant wait to hear how you like it!... Seems like it would be a ton of fun and be able to tow.

ajensen383 replied to thegarse's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI have to agree with the OP here... The biggest disappointment of my 6.2 is the lack of response and power at low to part throttle...Coming from my 2011 6.2 to this one, I thought that I would be in for a huge upgrade, but it was/is quite a disappointment... Ive always run 93 octane... I will admit this one does pull pretty hard once it gets into 3rd or so and starts getting up in the RPM, but from off idle it seems that I need to use ALOT of pedal ( almost to the click) to get it go at a decent rate...Once its floored it will go, but I don't want to floor it everytime I want to pull out into traffic and accelerate fast enough....I assume/hope a tune should cure this issue..

Thanks.. I didn't know that. I never felt the seat being warm when I sit in it after I remote start.. Though I do not let my truck warm up for 10 minutes either...at most 2 or 3 minutes In my wifes traverse, remote starting doesn't turn the light for the seats either, but when you get in a push the start button, the seat indicators light lights up automatically... I didn't know the trucks shut off when inserting the key
Point is... what kills these transmissons is all the computer controlled garbage Haha, I doubt it would be much slower, if at all... very easy to put a gear vendors OD on a t-400 and have a 100% bulletproof mechanically operated 6 speed.
Exactly.....but in this day and age heaven forbid that something is not controlled by some kind of electronics
I wish I could just put a TH400 in my new truck ..... get rid of all the computer controlled crap
I have the same problem with mine, its frustrating, I don't want the rear defroster on every time the temp is below a certain temp... I also cant get my heated seats to come on automatically either even though I have the setting switched to "on" ...
One new thing that happened over the weekend...This only happened once so im not sure if it will be an on going issue... Driving home on the highway, pulling a light grade in 8th gear.. I went to pass a truck so I gave it some gas. Usually It will downshift into 7th and then when I let up it will go back to happily chewing along in 8th...This time it felt strange in the downshift, not even sure how to explain it, like it was caught in between gears and wasn't a firm downshift as usual, almost soggy feeling . It would not shift into 8th not matter what until I crested the grade. I tried going almost 80 and letting off slowly to make it shift, I tried manually putting it in 8th, nothing would get it to shift... After I crested the grade it was fine after that but wondering if it will happen again...
Mine will do the twitch on occasion, it doesn't happen all the time, but it did happen a few times already. Since its been cold here in the NE I have been remote starting daily and 8 times out of 10 I don't get the twitch but it does happen.... I also have been noticing from a cold start when I get in and put it in reverse sometimes it will shutter for a second then go into reverse.. It only seems to do this when its cold out or on a cold start.. Once its warmed up it seems ok... I still do not have any shutter or vibration yet with mine..almost 8700 miles
