Not sure why they would publish this and not have any updates,or did I miss something here.
I'm very interested in a 6.6 gas 10 speed if it ever happens.

The article mentioned was not generated or released by General Motors. The inferiority belongs to the publisher/rumor mill. These types of articles are click bait to sell ads. Like the babe/hunk and then it's about rice or something.

Amazingly like the ongoing Ford 7.3 twin turbo 'report' attributed to 'Ford Authority' website, posted elsewhere on this forum. "Sources familiar" and "subscribe now" were tipoffs to me.

Over the years, I've found GM authority to be pretty good.

So?
This forum/website is also click bait to sell RVs, memberships, and worthless insurance / roadside assistance.

Not sure why, but for the last few months GMauthority links have been appearing in news feeds a lot. The articles are almost uniformly disappointing & lacking in info that the headline promises. I just don't go there anymore.

Pretty vague news. More than likely Ford will be updating their engines in the upcoming years as will Ram. Now if I was a GM guy and if they had said the 2022 GM HD will get an all new 500 hp, 1100 lbft Duramax I might get excited.

I would get excited if GM produced a good looking truck for once since the '87 model year.

I actually think GM has produced some pretty nice looking trucks since then, but tastes do vary. But I can't for the life of me figure out how anyone thinks the current Chevy 2500/3500 is anything but obscenely ugly & the GMs are only a little better.
