RE: 2023 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon

BTW... I sure would rather have one of these mid-size trucks over a full size EV truck. Spent my first 20yrs driving in small pickups. If you aren't towing or doing heavy hauling, they were a great option. My first was a 1986 S-15, 4 banger stick. Averaged 27mpg and it had plenty of pep. But these modern semi-full size trucks are so close to 1/2 tons in size and cost, no real reason not to just get the 1/2 ton. I drove a 1994 Ranger for 13 years. Put 160,000 on it. Averaged 23-24 running 70-75 mph on the freeway. Drove an 06 Frontier V6 for 4 years barely getting 23 mpg running the same speeds. You can get that with a F150 2.7 and have a nicer ride. So the conclusion is to pass on the EV and midsize trucks and just purchase a full size 1/2 ton truck. Looks like the big 3 already has that covered.

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

Let's make this perfectly CLEAR. The trans in the current GM's are only "BRANDED ALLISON". Makes me all warm and fuzzy. RAM has a Chrysler trans and AISIN MD trans. Ford has its own HD trans. No smoke and mirrors with either of them. I'm not going to accuse Ram of using smoke and mirrors but I'm pretty sure if Ram came out with an eight speed tranny to stick behind the HO Cummins they wouldn't need the Aisin name to sell it. I agree. But reality is the Cummins does not need more gears. I never heard of Asin until some one here started throwing that name around like it was important. I am now on my 3rd Allison truck. They have all been great. Remember, GM was the first to put a RELIABLE auto trans, in a heavy duty truck. That forced the others to step up their game. It used to be common to need a tranny rebuild at 70-80K. You all should be thankful to GM. I don't think Chrysler got the notice from GM. Perhaps the reason why is they were in one of their multiple owners/organization changes. Can't say which one, there's been so many that I lost track. Currently under the French rule of law. Combined mileage for my current and previous Super Duty is 430,000 miles and the transmissions are so good I don't even think about them nor do I add aftermarket transmission pans and take pictures of the internal fluid to share to the world.

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

Next thing GM will be offering 0% financing before you know it which leads me to say; hopefully GM can stay out of that infamous special meeting with Congress.

Congrats... My parents had one of the first 6.0 powered HD Chevy's and it actually had cast iron heads.

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

I didn't go any further than the video with the GM engineer. So you drank the coolaid, and did not get to the park about first guy outside the GM/Allison bubble to tear down the new transmission. It is called cherry picking details. The devil is in the details.

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

Ford and GM co-developed the 10 speed transmissions that are used in half ton and car applications. The 10 speed HD transmissions were not co-developed. Something more to read. https://www.duramaxforum.com/threads/ford-gm-10-speed-allison-transmissions.1013201/ Thanks for sharing and the video in your link proves GM co-developed the 10 speed HD transmission with Allison with the information provided by a GM engineer. Link Plus the PTO on the Allison is on the passenger side that is chain driven and the PTO on the Ford is on the driver side that is gear driven. Not if you read further and take the word of Mike L of Inglewood transmission whoever the f×+! He is lol. He apparently knows more than GM themselves. That rag of a forum is apparently more screwed up than this one which takes a hell of a lot of work lol. I didn't go any further than the video with the GM engineer.

RE: Major Ecoboost repair, long delays

Look...another nut! :B This one's got 400k miles. Link Enjoy... LOL for a $4k oil leak. More like $4k to replace your GM stuck lifters. You know they say if you watch youtube enough your testicle will fall off lol. Speaking from experience? :E

RE: Major Ecoboost repair, long delays

When those ecopukes puke, all you're doing with a 10 yr old truck is throwing good money after bad. They're great engines for about the first 100K miles. After that it's a crapshoot. crapshoot

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

So Allison designed the transmission and GM produces it. So what's the problem? Maybe a little research is in order? I thought a Ford guy would have known this! Ford SDs are using the same Allison! :B https://www.motorbiscuit.com/problems-chevy-silverado-hd-10-speed-automatic-transmission/ https://nextgendiesel.com/blogs/transmissions-101/transmissions-101-allison-10l1000-problems-solutions-upgradesur Ford and GM co-developed the 10 speed transmissions that are used in half ton and car applications.

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

I may be wrong but I am fairly sure the 2008 and back "ALLISON 1000" is not the same as what is in the GM's now??? I also am fairly sure the earlier trans was the weak link with GM saying they didn't need to be able to tow 30k or whatever it was. Don't disagree...

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

Smoke and Mirrors ;) Pretty sure Stelantis/Ram doesn't make the "RAM" logo that is placed on the grill and tailgate of a RAM truck. Is that smoke and mirrors?

RE: All 2024 GM HDS get the 10 speed Allison.

the tranny is of course an ALLISON 10 speed. Are you sure? You might just have Allison emblems stuck on the hood or fender. It might be a 10L90E or even a Powerglide with 8 more gears stuffed in the housing somehow. Well it worked! The deal GM made to brand their 10 speed transmission as an Allison is fooling many, who now think they have a real Allison transmission. So Allison designed the transmission and GM produces it. So what's the problem? I recall Chrysler produced the 9 speed ZF designed transmission.

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

I missed that part of his quote. Having said that I agree with your statement. I can google as well as most, and my money is on this information is not really easily available to find. Nevermind, who tf cares? Maybe the car dealer guy has some "inside" numbers to share....those guys always seem to have "a guy" or "a hookup" or some other sales BS... I recall Shinerbock claimed he had access to this information, but didn't reflect what I've been seeing. I do recall early 2020 right before the craziness started I was looking at some Wranglers and noticed that the Ram trucks on the lot were 50:50 gas vs diesel which is something I've never seen.

RE: 2023 Ram Reveal

All new tow mirrors... Oh well maybe next year. Link Sofaking lame!! So Ram just pooped out power extendable mirrors, ala mid 2000s Ford and GM features? And some more cameras to make those mirrors have the ability to total a truck on cost to replace if both of them got damaged at the same time? But hey at least the 4th gen chassis is going into its 11th year of production with the body style going on 14 years….might beat Frod for longest running truck model without a redesign…lol. I’ll assume still no competitive transmission in the big C trucks, but at least Goodyear has pawned off more of those craptacular Duratracs on yet another OE offering…. (They are very durable and great traction. Live up to the name 100%. But they should be called the Duraloudresonatingtrac tires!) Ram updated the frame to support it's current front suspension setup and the rear coil springs. But yes it's time for Stelantis to man up and invest in a HD redesign and obsolete the classic models.

So it looks like the Raptor R puts the smack down on the TRX. 0-60 times (seconds) TRX: 4.11 (MOPAR) Raptor R: 3.9 (Ford Performance) TRX Put on Notice! And the wins continue! :C

RE: 2023 Ram Reveal

Pour little me, I sit here driving a FORD F150 with a tiny little 2.7L twin turbo V6 with a smile on my face. Who would have guessed, after a 1993 RAM/Cummins, a 2001.5 RAM/Cummins and a 2015 RAM/Cummins spanning 27 years. And 19 years with twin Cummins in the last boat. :) :) Hey Chris, I'm not feeling bad for you!! My hunting buddy has the same truck as yours, and it is a great truck! That puny little 2.7 can kick some V8 a$$, for sure!:C Jerry It can hardly get out of it's own way! 2021 Ford F-150 Sport 4x4 EcoBoost Specifications 0-60 MPH 6.1 sec QUARTER MILE 14.7 sec @ 94.7 mph My 1967 SS/RS 350 Camaro was slower and weighed 1500 less. Impressive when a man can list out the performance specs of his truck. :C
