I love my 2017, I'm getting about 30 miles a gallon empty and 14 towing my 7000 lb trailer! It will run circles around any Chevy I have ever towed with! It is even quieter than my 2014silverado gas was. I'll have to drive the 2020 when they get to my dealer,can't wait

An ok piece by tfl. I wish they were more gear head truck guys. 98 Glad you like the truck. fwiw it’s amazing how much better it gets with engine & trans tunes. More power & more power to the ground (less nanny) better economy plus turbo brake, cleaner oil, less codes. Maybe you already have them just sharing. You probably have 2 or 3 years of warranty left and it will be year from when the 2020s hit the steer before well at least before GDE has a tune fully tested & ready for it.

The fuel economy and towing ability of that baby diesel would be awesome - if they could be made reliable.

My 2002 5.9L Cummins was a towing beast in the day, and it was only 235hp/460tq before mods. Amazing to think a 3.0L V6 has more power and tq now in a 1/2 ton.
