  3. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 9-20-2017 Unlike light-duty trucks and every car sold in America, heavy-duty truck fuel economy data is hard to find. Consumer Reports knows this, and they recently tested heavy-duty pickups to determine the fuel economy. The interesting conclusion from Consumer Reports is that "What we found in our tests was that the efficiency of the diesel engines wasn't enough to offset the added bulk of these monstrous trucks. The heavy-duty diesels achieved only 14-15 mpg, which was 1-2 mpg less than their gasoline-powered light-duty counterparts." Consumer Reports does not conform to the EPA test cycles. This makes sense, since the EPA never actually drives cars to get the numbers it publishes (and which we find to be spot-on in actual testing). Rather, they use a combination of dynamometer testing and an algorithm to determine fuel economy of a wide range of situations. Here's how Consumer Reports does its fuel economy testing: "We perform our own fuel-economy tests, independent of the government's often-quoted EPA figures and the manufacturers' claims. Using a precise fuel-flow measuring device spliced into the fuel line, we run two separate circuits. One is on a public highway at a steady 65 mph. That course is run in both directions to counteract any terrain and wind effects. A second is a simulated urban/suburban-driving test done at our track. It consists of predetermined acceleration, and deceleration rates, as well as idle time. Consumer Reports' overall fuel-economy numbers are derived from those fuel consumption tests." You can view the Ram and Ford results at the link we have provided above. However, we thought it fair to publish the Chevy numbers for our membership. In CR's testing, the group found that the 2500 HD four-door crew-cab, with the 6.6-liter turbodiesel engine, four-wheel drive, and six-speed auto achieved a 14 MPG overall rating. CR found the Silverado 1500 with the 5.3-liter V8 earned a 16 MPG rating by comparison.
  4. Welcome and good morning everyone! I am live in Phoenix, Arizona to drive the brand new 2015 Chevrolet Silerado and GMC Sierra HD. I will be randomly posting my experiances today as the day goes on. Photos, info, facts, and anything else that I think you might enjoy. I will start driving at approximately 10am eastern time.
