In short.... I LIKE.

They look really good in person. ...


This has been my thought as I see them in my parking deck. The LTZ and High Country are sharp in my opinion.

I have been trying to have somebody share one with me for a week, but have not been successful.

Have spent too much time in 2019's (1500) with custom trim and know that having the power seats is worth the cost.

You didn't happen to look at the payload sticker? I know they are up but wondering what a nicely loaded one has. The only thing I can't understand is why no adaptive cruise is offered. I use it and appreciate a lot more than I thought I would on my Ford.

That is a High Country trim level. You don't have to spend that to get into one.

I'm waiting for our local dealer to get a diesel in so I can test drive one, they have a gasser but no sense driving that one. I did a build online a can get into a pretty loaded SLE for around 65K. I'm not a top trim level type of person as it is a work truck after all. As time goes on and now that I've seen one in person they look a lot better everyday. Silver with the black accented 20" wheels looks pretty sharp in my opinion anyways [emoticon]. I know they have a lot of negative comments about the interior as well but I see nothing wrong with it, seems very logically laid out and functionable.

I was just able to check the payload on a 2500HD LTZ Crew with standard box and it was 3032 lbs. I will hopefully find a 3500HD SRW and DRW to check.

Based on info I've seen, For 2020 GM classifies the 2500HD as a class 3, same as the 3500 so they are no longer restricted to a GVWR of 10,000 on the 2500's. So, for a 2500 GVWR is limited by the tires, axles and springs, which pretty much put it the same as the previous 3500SRW at around 11,500 in diesel configuration.

And I suspect there is an option for a 10,000GVWR for applications that want to stay at 10,000 or under.

I suspect if you look at a 3500SRW the GVWR and payload will be the same or within a few hundred pounds. Somewhat may depend on what tires are on the 2500.

I seen a new Chevrolet HD Silverado parked along the street at a small dealership a couple of weeks ago. For the first time in like 40 years I didn't feel the need to take a closer look at it and kept on driving while shaking my head.

As a long time Chevy fan I'm disappointed with the looks just as I was when Chevy released the 1988 aero design trucks. Also it's a shame one has to purchase the top of the line to get one that's not as offensive and swap out the painted bumper with a chrome one. That's crazy!

Fish does your post mean you are a girly man now in your advanced age. I like how a truck will drive more than what ever the front looks like because I had a Ram once and it had a grill that I really didn't feel was awesome but driving the truck I couldn't see it so it didn't matter. I know you are not a girly man.
