RE: GM 6.6 gas

Must be there are only 3 RVers that own a 6.6 gas engine, based on the responses. Must be many that go for the Duramax.

RE: GM releases more info on their Electric vehicle line up.

The 1/2 ton electric and Nikola truck drivetrain are somewhere in this bunch. Looks like they are getting serious. I’ll guess at mid 2022 for production of the half ton. Which isn’t that far away. https://electrek.co/2020/09/16/gm-lineup-ultium-electric-drive-units/ So you are considering the GMC Hummer a 3/4 or one ton? Will be unveiled on 10/20/2020 and built in 2021!

RE: Nikola and GM team up to make 900 HP Electric Supertruck.

I hope the SEC applies the laws consistently! Anything Elon got away with should not be punishable to any other company/executive.

RE: Nikola and GM team up to make 900 HP Electric Supertruck.

amazing how I see similar behavior to Elon, and the fanboys are all over this. How much in deposits does Elon have for a semi that is years late?

RE: Nikola and GM team up to make 900 HP Electric Supertruck.

...And I agree I am not entirely comfortable being that close to 5,000 to 10,000 psi tank of hydrogen. But you are comfortable sitting on a 900 Volt wire?

RE: Nikola and GM team up to make 900 HP Electric Supertruck.

The announcement was not marketing hype. The announcement was a business transaction (strategic partnership) announcing that one business was buying service/product from another. Investors see this as positive, and react with purchasing stock. Last week, GM and Honda announced they have signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding following extensive preliminary discussions toward establishing a North American automotive alliance. Today, GM announced that the Ultium battery – the power source behind GM’s future EV portfolio - will feature an almost completely wireless battery management system, or wBMS. I think I see a GMC Hummer soon!

RE: Avoiding AFS/VVT issues in next truck

I remember the days (like 2007) when the argument was that 6 speed transmissions were going to always be shifting, who needed more than 4 speeds. Now 6 is not enough. 10 may give a slight fuel economy advantage, it may keep the rpm range closer all the time. I have never thought "wow, I might be in 8th gear if it had 10, or wish I had more gears to shift through" while driving or towing 15k. Then again, when driving the 10 speed I never thought - "I wonder what gear I would be in if there was only 6".

RE: 2020 Chevy 3500

The LTZ is very nice. I drove 3k miles in 6 days in a CC LTZ DRW last month. It rides much better than a regular cab LT DRW.

RE: 2021 Suburban. How Much Trailer?

One more note... I watched the TFL review of the 2021 'burb, and was able to catch to the weights placard.... It stated a 790# tongue weight limit. Since this rig is brand new, we don't know why. It could be structural, or it could be they only used 10% for the dynamic part of the SAE J2807 validation tests. Based on what I heard and seen, I think this is the answer. The tongue weight is a straight 10% of the max trailer.

RE: Electric vehicle mandate in California

All interesting discussion. My Bolt EV now has 4750 miles. It is one of six vehicles in the fleet. It makes sense for local driving. It is not environment thing since I can see the coal going into the power plant within 10 miles of my porch. The reason I have it is because I needed a daily driver for one of the family members. It does not get roadtrip miles, as Michigan does not have a great charger network where I go, from where I live. As a side note, it will beat a F350 diesel in a drag race.

RE: New Truck for New Empty Nesters

I just made a 2000 mile trip, and diesel is easier to fill with a large trailer. I discovered that diesel at the truck pumps was also more, and you had to go in an prepay unless you have a credit card set up for $500 at gas pump. I used the truck lanes when I needed DEF, and used the other pumps when I did not need DEF. Most of the truck stops along the freeway were easy enough to get into with the trailer without the using the truck lanes. If this is going to be your travel vehicle, I would buy based on seat comfort. The LTZ power seats made the ride much better for me.

RE: What kind of trailer plug is this?

Those would be if you want the camera for seeing behind the trailer, or seeing inside the trailer. All the other trailer views appear when you plug a trailer into the 7 pin harness. Do you have electric over hydraulic brakes? Have you plugged in a trailer harness?

RE: What kind of trailer plug is this?

And the trailer camera system is fantastic. After a 2000 mile trip the last week, the camera gave me a great side view when using the turn signal when the water spray was impacting the ability to see past the truck. The split screen to show both sides when backing up was also helpful.

RE: New Hummer has crazy good specs. 1000 HP and 1150 torque.

It’s true that GM doesn’t seem to be paying attention to Aerodynamics. At this point they seem to be only planning annual production of 10,000 to 30,000 vehicles so not really a serious effort. No word on wether they’ll keep producing the bolt which has seen sales fall below 20,000 units. At some point they will have to mass produce an EV but no one knows what that will be right now. So you continue to talk **** about GM, and then ignore my statements that you should go research what GM has publicly released. Updated Bolt, Cadillac Lyriq, GMC Hummer, and all the others!

RE: GM HD Trucks Many with AWD instead of 4WD

The price and build sheets of 2020 Silverados are either 2WD or 4WD, no AWD option meaning they have 1 transfer case not 3 as on AWD cars. There are two different 4WD options. -- 4hi, 4lo, and 2wd -- 4hi, 4lo, AWD and 2wd

RE: GM HD Trucks Many with AWD instead of 4WD

Yes, the electronic Autotrac is an option on LT, and standard on the LTZ and High Country. The WT and standard LT do not get the Auto button.

RE: Volkswagen completes first non Tesla cross US charge network

I was excited to see this! I could now take my Bolt on an exciting road trip to see my daughter at Kansas State if I go straight south to Dayton. However, I will probably just take one of my vehicles that I can go 5 hours between fill-ups, fuel at any exit, and take the shortest and fastest route.

RE: Any new developments in hitches?

Get a new Silverado with the hitch-view camera. For $45k, you will be properly aligned!

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

...Companies like Rivian, Tesla, Nikola etc are finding lots of willing investors lately. GM and Ford are dragging their feet with no significant USA based EV ramp up programs in the next couple years. Foreign companies like Mazda, Subaru and Toyota are about the same. They all have projections for 5 to 10 years out but that pretty much leaves a near term vacuum that some of the new companies like Rivian and Tesla to fill. Interesting to watch all this evolve. All JMHO of course. I suggest that you improve your research. Maybe you have GM And Ford blocked in your feeds and google searches. Ford has an EV F150, and Mach E. GM has shown 13 EVS, including the GMC Hummer EV, Bolt EUV, and Cadillac's and Buick's. Some being produced in 2021! I believe that Rivian has plans for a SUV and Pickup. I would not call that broad product plans!

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

No, I am not as I said earlier. I am just interested in calling out hypocrites and double standards of people buying cars because they are environmentally friendly and then turning around and celebrating a rolling coal rocket. I did not lease my Bolt EV believing it was environmentally friendly. I watch them roll coal off the freighter, roll coal with the dozer, and roll coal into the plant to generate electricity. I know it is not friendly. I leased my Bolt EV because it was a fantastic deal, the power company reimbursed me for a charger (actually power company customers), it is cheaper to operate, and fun to drive.
