No real power in a brand new truck?

I think i may have bought a real pretty turd. 2016 GMC 3500 Denali cc/sb Duramax Allison. Great truck right?
My other trucks are 2006 GMC cc/sb d/a , 2008 & 2010 F250 extended cab short box gas 5.4L

Ive read plenty on the dead pedal, and im not ready to void the warranty and rip off all the emissions, and tune it. But to get my *** handed to me by my own truck, ( my 06 with 155k on it ) after shelling out this kind of coin, i dont think i even like the damm thing anymore. Also towing with it. Was i towing heavy with it, yes. Do i tow the same load with my 06 yes. I had my foot to the floor at certin points, and grades. My 06 would have the tires breaking lose if i had my foot in it over half way.

All the bells and whistles, eh......... just eh. exhaust brake is a joke, the gauges, even though you can change them, you have to chose between volts and tranny temp. I plow snow so both of those are important to me, AT THE SAME TIME.

Power fold mirrors, but they dont extend?? My 2010 ford does both...............wtf.

Cant turn off the wireless charging, toss some change on the and let that burn the damm truck down?

I dunno, just kinda sad that a 10 year old truck kicked my *** in a race stock truck to stock truck, and all this extra crap on the truck kinda sucks. I just feel like i rode the band wagon of what my other truck was, and not what this truck is. Anyone else??

Buy a Ford they make Better trucks then GM hands down I will never buy a GM truck ever again....when the new 2017 F450 Super duty comes out I'm jumping ship I have had it with GM's weak car front ends in a HD truck

Anytime you can get a 5th wheel hitch and gooseneck ball tow prep package from the factory
Well nuff said


And GM wonder why Ford out sales them in trucks......GO FORD

Again, the "weak" GM front IFS suspension has a higher load capacity than Ford and Ram and is more reliable. BTW, GM offers a factory gooseneck option, nuff said.

I have a '15 Denali and an '07 LBZ and there are differences for sure. The Denali blows the LBZ away in almost anything except the mushy pedal. And that can be fixed if you read a few threads down....

Just so you know the mirrors do extend, just gotta do it manually.

I'm quite pleased my 2016. Maybe you should go to the dealer and drive another to make sure yours is running right. I read some one else felt under powered and turned out they had a air leak from factory, quick easy fix and they were 100% happy afterwards.

Also I drove a 2015 powerstroke right before buying my duramax. I thought its performance was no better then the duramax and the rest of the truck sucked. cheap plastic everywhere and horrible loud ride.

Doesn't the wireless charger automatically turn off if it dont detect a phone on it?

Huh? I'm at a loss. Coins on a charging pad burning a truck to the ground? Hmmm. I dont believe that you have a grasp on that technology. Wheels won't break free at 40mph with a trailer on? Sounds like stabilitrac may actually work. Exhaust brake a joke? Probably afraid to let it rev over 2400rpm. Can't watch volts and trann temp at the same time? C'mon, you need to watch voltage on a twin alternator, dual battery truck Mirrors don't power extend? Wow. I say sell it now. Definitely a deal breaker.
