Eight cameras, if offered, will be an option, so nobody will have to take something they don't want, but I haul a big 5th wheel trailer and I would take the camera option.

I REALLY LIKE my backup camera on the big screen in my 2015 - as you back up there are lines on the screen to show the exact vehicle tracking so you can avoid objects low down.

I also REALLY LIKE the lane departure warnings that vibrate the left or right sides of my seat if I stray a little out of the center of the lane.

You don't know how useful these enhancements are until you try them.

How much will GM Put into a New 6-7 Liter Mill on their own ?????
Be nice to get a CGI block in 6.6 at the very least with a 425/825 rating and a 2000 series ally

Allison Sticks to their guns that you dont need anymore than a 6 spd trans in most apps

I made this post in another "rumor" thread about that site, and it seems as though it's even more applicable after that webpage has been."updated".

Did you pull that little snippet from the futurecarmodel.com website?? Those articles are written by 5th grade children from third world countries that are practicing the new fancy English words they learned. Complete gibberish garbage.

I wouldn't say it's "all over the net" just because one worthless website mentioned a 6.7 which was probably a typo. I may eat my words, but I'm pretty sure the Duramax will continue as a 6.6L.

What they really need is for ME to select the gear the tranny is running in
Look, running empty, doing a gordon lightfoot, and the durn thing is winding away and refusing to shift
The engine has gobs of torque just off idle and I'm doing 35 on a suburban parkway with the engine around 1600 and refuses to shift, that engine should be able to push me along in 5th or 6th at 1200 rpm
Case in point was we moved a combine 90 miles. I ghosted along after it at 15 mph just running interference for traffic and I got a lousy 17mpg - I was fit to be tied becasue it refused to shift and let the engine run just barely off idle - no reason in this world I should not have been getting 30 mpg

If there's anyone out there going to the International Auto Show that starts for the public in Detroit today, could you please see if there's any info on the 2017s, especially the new engine. Thanks.

how about a 7th or 8th super-overdrive?,could these trucks run 65mph at 1000 rpms?
Running at such low rpm for extended periods of time would destroy the engine and be hard on a lot of other things.
