sorry I dont feel like reading through this entire thread, but the 19+ trucks you cannot shut the "auto-stop" off at all? is that standard on all engine options? that is absurd.. I have a C class that I can hit a button and it shuts off.
I was thinking about picking up a 2019 dually as well. sold my 2500 Denali a few months ago. I really enjoy the body style of the 2015-2019 HD trucks. My local dealer has a 2019 LTZ 3500 Duramax decently optioned (minus the bench seat) they said they would sell me for 56k. Sticker is about 69k. I think now would be a good time to pick one up, I personally won't buy the first model year of anything. I personally think the new tailgate is a paint in the ass.. I just want an old school handle.
as others have said, it totally depends on the dealer. I am now out of warranty but I removed all of the emissions off of my duramax when it was new. the dealer I bought it from would not do anything with it, but I called another local GMC dealer and told them I have a truck that I removed the emissions on and they said as long as its not related to what aftermarket equipment is on the truck we will cover it. issues fixed were a leaky oil pan gasket, and a fried power seat. I would be amazed if they would even say anything about a diode.
I wouldn't consider a truck that does not have 4WD low, especially when all of the other options do, My lake has a naturally formed rock boat launch and its imperative to use 4 low to pull the wakeboard boat out! engine size does not matter in that situation
yes, I heard it will have the same engines available as the S-class so the inline 6 and the 4.0.
The GLS has been due for an update for quite a few years.. I will say after spending some time behind a GLS550, it is really fun vehicle to drive. Shame the 4.7l TT V8 won't carry over!
I have a 2019 Sprinter with a 3.0 diesel, from what I have heard it is similar to other 3.0 diesels. its my first smaller displacement diesel, I have been able to spend time driving and hauling with. It drives very nice but it is in no way fast. phenomenal torque great for towing/hauling/MPG. but I would take a 5.3 or preferably a 6.2 in a personal pickup, no doubt.
I really dont think these new 2020 HD trucks look good at all, I didn't have a problem with any other GM trucks but these are brutal, the mirrors are horrible and the front ends dont look good to me, interior still isn't comparable to the other big 2... this solidified that I will be getting a powerstroke to replace my LML!
I much prefer the short bed, my dad has a 17 crew cab short and I really enjoy driving it, unless you constantly have items bigger the the bed or things that will be hanging out of the bed I would go with a short bed all day, you can easily haul a full size 4x4 quad with the tailgate down. I think they look way better too.
if you dont enjoy the truck, I would get rid of it if it financially makes sense. there's no reason to create financial burden if you dont need to. If you get the truck you want you would possibly be less inclined to get rid of it so quickly, I dont like keeping vehicles for over 3 years but my current truck I have had for 5 years and while I really want a new one I enjoy my truck and have not had any issues with it, as well as enjoying having it paid off!
impressive numbers, id have to say this is a good looking truck.. way better the the 2020 Silverado HD.. still wouldn't buy a Ram/Dodge product though. will be going with a new powerstroke this year no doubt.
as others have said, I would wait for the new body style to come out and get a heavily discounted pre 2019 truck, I bought one of the last GMT900 trucks when the K2's came out, got it for over 11k off sticker.
