Surprise, it's actually some significant stuff. More 6.2L First up, the 6.2L makes its long awaited move to trim levels below LTZ. Now Custom Trail Boss, RST, and LT Trail Boss trim levels can also order the 420 horsepower engine option. As owners of a 2019 LTZ with the 6.2L , we highly recommend it. More 10-speed LT Trail Boss and High Country with the 5.3L engine will upgrade to the all new 10-speed transmission. This move was more expected as GM flushes out the 10-speed into more models and slowly phases out the 8-speed and 6-speed transmissions its sold for years. A New 3.0L Diesel The new light duty Duramax makes it's debut in 2020. It will be available on LT, RST, and above trim levels. This engine will also come with the new 10-speed transmission. Smaller changes Other additions to the lineup for 2020 include adaptive cruise control and a new "transparent trailer" camera system that displays up to 15 different views.

Zane posted a topic in The NewsroomZane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 10/3/18 Those wishing for some guidance on how the all new 3.0L Duramax Diesel will rate just had that wish come true. The Fast Lane Truck got the scoop from someone with access to General Motor's Canadian Dealer Portal. Promotional material that included specs for the new 3.0L were photographed and emailed to the website yesterday. That means someone with dealer access facilitated the leak. The not quite yet official figures rate the light-duty diesel engine at 282 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. The material also claims a highway rated fuel economy of 28 mpg. That's more power then both Ford and Ram's small diesels, which produce 250hp/440 lb-ft and 240hp/420 lb-ft respectively. The same spec sheets also list the towing capacity of the 3.0L at 7,800 lbs, which falls below the 5.3L and 6.2L's 9,000lb+ rating. To us this signals that GM will market the 3.0L Diesel as a daily commuter for someone who occasionally tows. What do you think about the ratings and capability? Chime in on this thread in our 2019 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra forum.
