The one I drove was a 2013, so I don't know the definition of "new." It was not impressive to me, maybe I am just used to the duramax making all the power down low.
I long for the days when full size trucks were only 2wd, manual transmission and 60-120 HP

So much simpler

I agree, but that doesn’t mean they were capable. I remember my ‘83 1/2 ton 2WD with a 305 and 4-speed manual was a cheap and simple truck. But even trying to pull a couple jet skis was challenging. I had the long bed filled with tools everyday for work and it could handle that barely ok, but towing wasn’t it’s strong point.

2019 GMC Sierra

1/2 ton called the Elevation standard 2.7L turbo diesel. 3.0L turbo inline 6 cyl offered later in production year. Very nice looking truck, not jacked way up in air, 20 inch rubber fills the wheel wells very nicely.

The 2019 Sierra Elevation will have the 2.7 4 cyl turbo gas engine, not a diesel.

Originally heard early 2019, then 2nd quarter from a salesman, and then read on a truck forum late 2019. I really wanted one, but couldn't wait out the uncertainty. Just bought a 6.6L instead.

I saw two of these in a rest area heading back to Michigan from Florida last week, monitoring data on a laptop. One with the diesel air scoop and one without. I asked about the MPG, but they were tight-lipped.

I almost forgot the best part of my story...when i mentioned that I was driving a 6.5L, he the driver said,"I'll keep my fingers crossed for you".

They drop a hint on release date?
Nope. I had plenty of questions, but no answers. I did get the impression that they liked the numbers on the laptop, FWIW.
I'll be interested to see if the 3.0 will go in vans down the road.

Have heard through grapevine they were having reliability issues with the timing belts.

Does anyone on this forum know where this inline six will be built? USA? Offshore?
Production is supposed to be at the Flint Engine plant.
Assigned RPO: LM2
