GM with a tow rating of 35,500 is the towing champ as of now. Also this video includes what GM did to increase tow capacity by ~10k lbs.

I agree that GM's interior is falling behind. I have a friend that has the nav display that seems to small. It is 2017 I think, so I do not know if it is that same as the one in these new GMs.

The size of the screen is the same as the '17. The infotainment system itself is all new and much improved from my limited time playing with it. Here is the deal on the interior. Ram set the bar higher on the highest trim levels. On it's own the GM interior are very ergonomic, well thought and as a result very functional. What it is not, is blingy and GM is getting beat up for it. I confess I spend a lot of time in my truck and I want it nice and I want a certain level of Bling. I would be good with what is offered, but if they are going to improve it (which is subjective) I am for that. All that said sitting in the interior of an LBZ or HC level Chevy is not an uncomfortable experience and I have not seen anything written that says it is. It all depends on what you put value in. The interior is 3rd on my list, behind performance and dependability. If you think the GM interior is bad on first impression, spend some time in it and see what you think. I am not sure how anyone could step out of one and say that it isn't comfortable and functional.

I was thinking the same when it was released. Sitting in my buddies new Ford's, I like the Chevy/GMC better. Just wish they went to a bigger one like the Ram. It looks like 2022 for the update on the interior.

Notice no Chevy's. IMO, too many knobs and buttons. Do like some features and looks of the GMC tho.

I think our simple dash on the 05 is still the best. Simple for a simple feller.


we also have an 2018 suv so I have knowledge on not simple.
