Personally I would be more excited by a 400hp diesel with a 100hp hybrid electric drive generator combo like Ford is offering in the F150. Just bigger and with a much larger battery so that the electric motor can make a significant difference while pulling a heavy trailer.

Also apparently an upgraded rear diff to handle the power, and upgrades to the Allison branded transmission as well.

me also. making the diesel a "mild" hybrid with a big enough battery to capture the energy required to stop from 60 and/or an option to capture the energy from a 1 mile 6% downgrade with a 10,000 lb trailer would likely greatly increase in town fuel economy and boost power. With the low fuel consumption at idle, it wouldn't even need start/stop incorporated,

Just remember, the added weight of the hybrid system will subtract from the trucks capacity.

Good to hear from ya'.

Interesting. Means maybe higher axle ratings = more money payloads. Sounds like GM is getting serious in the commercial LDT market. They have taken the back seat to the Ram and Ford SD for years now in that market. I know'22 GM 3500 drw move up to 10500 rawr has made a bit of "about time" comments from GM fans on those type of websites.

They have try to do something, as they getting their behind kicked in the sales arena. Ugly front end and fake Allison may not be helping them. Real Allison's sold the product for many years.
