Hey Everyone! I just got back from test driving the all new GMC Sierra HD LMM Turbo Diesel!!!

The truck was a 2007 2500 HD LMM Turbo Diesel 2WD SLT Ext cab/Long bed.

1 word... "AMAZING"!!!

The NEW 2007 LMM had Incredible tire shredding power in every gear. Still had a nice and loud turbo whistle like the LBZ, which almost worried many diesel place guys that it wouldnt (Roadshark) .

Exhaust still had a nice beefy rumble when you got on it. Definately knew you had a "Duramax" under the hood.
It was Super smooth and quiet on the freeway with windows closed. Very easy to hold conversations in the cab. When you got on it though, that turbo whine definately talked to you!

I took a ton of photos for all you guys which I will have up by later today.

I know I get just as frustrated as you when we hear that one of us test drove a new HD, but have no photos to show everyone...

I took many photos of the 07 LMM for all you dieselplace guys to see. I even got on my hands, knees, and stomach to get all angles of photos for you guys under the truck. I didnt care if the sales guy though I was crazy. haha

Heres a couple photos to get you guys started...

I even took a photo for you guys of the window sticker which ill post later after I download all photos to my computer.

While everyone was saying how much more expensive the new Body 07 LMM trucks would be over the old body classic 07 LBZ, it was wrong.

The "FULLY LOADED" SLT Duramax/Allison combo HD truck was Only $44K plus $900 destination charge with A TON of EXTRA options and luxuries over the GMT800 old body trucks. Many of these options are not available for the 07 classic "old body" trucks.

Remember now, this is a Brand New "FULLY LOADED" SLT. This particular 07 truck had many additonal options on top of the SLT leather package...such as:

Built in trailer brake controller, convinience package, adjustable pedals, back up alarm, remote Vehicle start, EZ lift tailgate, locking taligate, Rear power sliding window, HD trailering equipment package, and a few others.

Stay tuned guys, more photos later to come today!

Im uploading and downloading the photos as quick as I can for you guys...

The motor sounded great and the exhaust tip was HUGE! THe factory exhaust tip already looked like a big after market exhaust pipe.

I don't know but doesn't 44k seem a bit high for 2wd? I've never considered any thing but 4wd, so maybe that's normal. My loaded '06 was 44k.

On edit, I sure like the looks of it compared to the Chevy. Keep 'em coming...

Good to see the engine compartment isn't a complete cluster$^[email protected] like the new ford. Do you have any close-ups of the DPF? I'm sure many of the members in the hunt for horsepower would like a good look at their next potential foe.

I didnt get too many pics of the DPF becasue I was too eager to drive the truck. haha.
I took a bunch of photos of a variety of everything on and outside the big massive truck.

The interior is just about identical to the 1500's. Only difference was probably the factory built in trailer brake contoller on this HD.


For an extened cab, it was pretty good size. It was a cool feature that the doors really do open so wide.
One thing I really like is for those guys planning to get the extened cab truck, like this particular one I test drove, is the fact that the rear windows are power and roll down fully as if it is a crew cab.

I used to have a 98 silverado Ext cab and I hated the wing windows in the back. I always wished that my 98 truck had power roll down rear windows.

Pics are great, you are da man! I heard that the tow mirrors were more horizontal than they are on the 07's what did you think of them? I like the way they look in pics.
