Ah, so NHT must be the RPO code for the HD trailering package. When you say "increased" RAWR, GVWR, GCWR, I'd be interested to know what those numbers are. Seems like the 1500's are getting so capable that going to a 2500 doesn't get you much.

GM ordering guide shows the 1500 NHT package comes with a 7300 gvwr and 4150 rawr.

Great looking truck in white with a bit of black trim here and there.... and especially not those all black butz ugly wheels.

With the HP and especially those big torque numbers it should make a good 1/2 ton tow machine....and good DD mpgs.

Nothing close to GMs 2500 11550 gvwr and 6600 rawr.

The OPs truck will be a great tower, for his use, but not even close to a 2500!

Agree. Thought hard about it but decided that this truck should be perfect with 7500 lbs and the unloaded mileage is pretty crazy for a truck. It won't be close to it's 12,900 tow rating but I don't think any 1/2 ton should be towing over 8,000 lbs and if I thought I would get a bigger trailer one day, I would have gotten a 3/4 ton but I have already been down that road and for me with plans for a lot of tow miles a 25 ft trailer is perfect.

It gets you more then it would seem. Going through mountain passes in the wind or trying to stop when your trailer brake plug comes loose will show a big difference but the new 1/2 tons are very capable... to a point.
