    Damn, you beat me to it.

    Trying to get this to the news section while watching the video. If people (not the EPA) get 32 MPG for a 2wd, there may no longer be a need for the Colorado 2.8 Duramax. Yes, I know, some buyers might not want a full-size truck & want something smaller. But, for marginally more money, you'd get a roomier truck, with more HP/torque, more towing capability & equal FE.

    RAM and FORD TOTALLY OWNED :-)

    LD truck diesel segment is about driveability and PRICE more like gas V8 and economy BETTER than a 4cyl gas mid size.

    When is GM going to provide a 4WD CREW CAB (you know the ones that most buyers actually purchase) is given to testers for MPG and performance????

    At least a 2WD version.

    Only performance and MPG numbers that matter are the ones the most popular variant delivers, until then all numbers need to have an Asterisk next to them.

    Well... It looks solid in RST form for sure. I can't wait to drive one but at around $47,000 OTD it's going to be out of my reach.

    Whoa now. Smiley there must be for comedic effect. The Ram will still have the highest published tow ratings. We'll have to wait for the GM & Ram 2020 6 cylinder fuel economy ratings to see who is the king of the segment.

    Never in the history of sales of consumer half ton trucks has any of them hit 44 MPG. I think they must have tried some calculations in their head & carried a 1 that wasn't there.

    Obviously not a EPA result, but even seeing that 38mpg on the dash before he hit reset makes me wonder what a extremely light foot could be capable of

    I thought he said 44k? Either way under 50k for a truck now-a-days is considered pretty reasonable

    Its still mighty impressive and GM is justifiably proud of it new I-6 diesel an surely it has a lot more torque to come at the first update so Ram better not rest on their laurels.


    I’ll just add that Ford’s baby all ally 2.0 Panther Diesel makes up to 215 Hp and 370 lb ft, so even a five cylinder 2.5 diesel would make around 270 Hp and 465 lb ft....diesels have lots more efficiency to come now that engineers have worked out that lower combustion temps give fewer emissions

    Updating power and torque numbers in response to competition is more like something Ford would do...GM will just let it wither forever...

    Under 50k for the mid level truck is reasonable for 2WD?? Notice I said OTD.

    Sorry I missed the "OTD". Personally I have to get 4WD and I have been favoring RST trim, it looks so damn good in person.
