2020 Chevy 2500 HD Trucks

Just a psa,, as I am certainly not in the market for a brand-new truck, I have no skin in the game.
This vid came out ~3 days ago. I found it interesting in a mild way.
The new 6.6 gas engine looks to be a decent performer.
For your perusal/enjoyment,,.

Pretty excited about the L8T engine. It will be a great engine to swap into older vehicles when they become available from salvage. I'm sure the hotrod world will be gobbling them up!

The camera system is pretty neat. Still not worth the trade-in.

The 10 speed Allison transmission mated to the diesel is an advantage over the 6 speed in the RAM Cummins.

I also like that they provide a label in the passenger door jam listing the all the towing specs, including payload.

Ok...if you like P/U's. 🤔
We Burb-it, no 2500 Burb?
Our 8.1 does just fine, plus it's dumb and stays out of the ☁️.

I thought this video was equally impressive -





Interesting how few "humans" seem to actually be involved.

I spent most of my working career in the auto industry as a supplier to the assembly lines. As often as I've seen the process of building vehicles I'm still amazed and fascinated.

Thanks for sharing!

There are many, many humans involved in designing, building, programming and maintaining the robots and tooling used to build a vehicle body. The video doesn’t show the thousands of injection molding and stamping work cells needed to make the plastic and metal parts in a vehicle, which employ huge numbers of people who design, purchase, install, run and maintain all those machines. There are at least three major robotics/automation companies I pass every day and their parking lots are full. Not to mention those working in the assembly plant. Mind boggling indeed.

That 6.6L gas motor is a pretty neat option... I would consider a 2500 version of my AT4 pretty seriously... but I would hold off the first year in hopes that they make the 10 speed an option. The numerous gears have been great for me downshifting on grades. Fewer, wider spaced gears wouldn’t give as many choices to downshift without over-rev.

What fascinates me is the amount of design to get the assembly line laid out. A LOT I GOING On and needs to be coordinated. I could watch a show just on the design of the assembly line.

The new version of the HD trucks are interesting and I am keeping and eye on them. As a futuretimer, I go back and forth as to gas vs diesel. We shall see what the future holds
