Was your 86 a 6 banger 3 speed with 2.73 gears or something? Find it hard to fathom that 8600gvw = 100lbs of towing capacity?


Well, as Marty has stated many times on this forum, it's actually -100lbs tow rating.

The truck didn't come equipped from the factory to tow, so it wasn't rated by the factory to tow. That's how they did it in those days.

I almost think my Dad's 1989, Chevy 2500, 8600GVWR, Vortec 350, 4-speed manual, 4.10 axle ratio, was also NOT rated for towing, because it didn't come equipped with any towing equipment. He built his own hitch and that thing towed like a freight train by 1989 standards.

It was never a statement of the truck's capability. It was a denial of liability by the manufacturer. "If you want to tow, you're on your own."


Ok, so confirming the relevance of this to "New 2024 Chevy HD and Increased Dmax Power" may also be less than zero? Regardless, this new "feature" is very much a detriment and yet another big brother type nanny.

The interior is an all new design and from the looks it looks pretty good. The one thing I would hope they did, but I doubt it was to increase the depth of their window sill because that's where I like to rest my arm/elbow. The last model year GM had a good window sill was 1987.

Have owned quite a few GM trucks since 94 and never had an issue resting my arm/elbow on a windowsill. Are you 4'-6" tall? Perhaps sit on a pillow? Are you planning on ditching Ford for GM?


I'm 6'4" which is why I sometimes prefer a taller arm rest.

LOL that '94 didn't have enough window sill room to support your arm unless it's thin like a pencil! [emoticon]

And yes when I purchase my next truck I'll take a look at GM like I have always done.

Here's TFL on the new Chevy at the Texas State fair. Looks like an all new dash to me.

It does look like a revised dash. However the dash doesn't constitute the entire interior. I'd like to see more comfortable seats, a better layout. repositioning the center consiole. THe GM /Chevy interior needs to be more spacuious and more comfortable. it does not compare to the others in terms of comfort and space.
Don't get me w4rong I like the truck. I had the chance to buy the other guys and still went back to Chevy, nevertheless I still believe the competition has a better interior.

I meant a sill with more depth not taller.

Interesting feature. Can't help but wonder if the truck records these numbers while towing for future reference by the dealer or other motives in the event of an accident.


My thought too, when I read that, just another spyware for warranty exemption, when drive line fails.

With the ratings as high as they are now, this is not an issue for RVers.

LOL....exactly. I don't ever remember going around to dealers measuring the width/depth of door window sills on trucks, and then determining I am not interested in one because some piece of interior trim is 1/4" smaller than the other. But reading through these boards I am sure quite a few have a major case of OCD about such things along with chronic fanboiitis.
