I had a 2020 Silverado 3500 regular cab dually with the 6.6 gas. I had it for more than a year. I never pulled in mountains, but I did pull a hill from a stop at the bottom with over 15k pounds without a problem. Fuel economy was as stated earlier.

I never felt that the 6 sp transmission impacted performance for me. I have also driven a 2021 3500 Crew with the Duramax. And yes, it did better.

Not sure what I will order after I tow my travel trailer next week to Iowa with my van. I expect that the comfort and trailering capabilities of the new trucks will convince me to place the order.


Weird news coming from the guy who’s been pimpin vans as awesome tow vehicles….


Ever hear of having more than one vehicle? If the General provides a dually for me to drive, I am going to drive it. If they provide a 3500 Crew, I am going to drive it. Sticker was above $83k on the 3500 Crew. For families, I will always be pimpin a used rental van as a trailer towing value. I purchased less than 2 yrs old and 30k miles for $22k. It is a third of the cost of a pickup.

For somebody who is getting to be an old geezer, and experienced the comfort of a Denali with a Duramax and all the cameras, and can save 20% off a new truck while the public is paying MSRP, there is a potential for a new truck. Additionally, it allows me to help my daughter haul straw and hay.


Yup, I understand the concept. Have a few different vehiculars myself. But you’re the one who said the comfort and towing ability make convince you to buy one (presumably in place of your short bus)
