Thanks for the post! Looks like all the big wheel guys are finally going to get their big fancy 20” wheels on the 3500s. Unfortunately TPMS is standard on the 3500. Also, it doesn’t look like the rumored multi-pro tailgate is going to make it to the new HDs for 2020, at least on the Silverado, didn’t check the Sierra. Lots of other good stuff to look over.

Multi pro is std on Denali according to that guide and no 20" wheels on DRW.

I should’ve looked at the Sierra guide too, I thought that it was rumored to be on both the Silvy/Sierra HDs. And yeah, I meant SRW trucks.

Looks like a nice boost in GVWR across the board. Looks like a bunch of GVWR ratings depended on wheel size, cab size and bed length. So many ratings it's very difficult to keep them straight....

Up to:

2500HD 11,550

3500 SRW 12,250

3500 DRW 14,000

GVW better be up... Curb weight of a 2500 CCLB diesel is right at 8000 lbs

Funny about tow ratings... They tout 35,500 max but you have to go looking in the footnotes to find it. Max 32,000 with 5th wheel (3)

(3) increases to 35,500 with gooseneck

All gooseneck hitches I've ever seen are only rated to 30K, Must be some new ones out

Curt is revising their stamps. 2 5/16 goes to 40k and 3 in goes to 38k. Most 30k+ GN are 3 inch balls.

My '06 weighs 8k without the 100 gallon fuel tank in the bed. That is my biggest gripe with that era of trucks.

Anyone else see the TFL truck Ike gauntlet challenge with the new 2500hd and the Ram 3500 drw?
16,500 lb GN trailer, Both trucks near identical time, speed and MPG.

About the GN hitch being behind the axle on the 2500, With trailer on it the front axle weight actually went down 100 lbs.

Their time benchmark for the uphill is 8 minutes, Both were around 8:30, I can only imagine how slow they'll be when they do a full on dually test with an extra 19,000 strapped onto them

I thought that was kind of unimpressive, the GM 2500 should have been faster, once they test the GM 3500 dually it will be slower yet.

Jason,

I came away with a different prospective. the ram was touting the 1,000 lb-ft torque engine vs. the duramax's 910 lb-ft, so there is 10% difference in torque right there. Based on that I think the duramax did well.

The '20 GM dually will have shorter tires, effectively lowering the final gear ratio which should give it a bit of advantage. At least this is the way I took it, let me know your opinion.

If that is a bench mark, it is an impossible one.
That run is 8 miles. Their test parameters limit the speed to 60MPH.
They start the test time @30MPH.
To be able to get a perfect score, they would need to start the test already @ 60 MPH. How much time the present parameters add to the 8 minutes, is impossible to figure out from the info given.... But it WILL add time.
8:30 might not be a bad time at all.
