I like the profile shots. Not sure I’m a fan of the massive grill. Maybe looks better in person.

Looking forward to the GMC / Denali version with the multi tailgate and upgraded interior.

All new v8 gas engine with more HP/torque mated to a 6spd gearbox for 2020. L5P Duramax diesel continues but will now be mated to a 10spd Allison gearbox.

“Significant” increase in towing capability. Like people need to tow more than 24k lbs :) I guess it’s a numbers game between gmc/Ford/ram for commercial 3500 use.

I think it will definitely be interesting to see that 10 speed Allison. Ford stayed with the 6 speed, as the size/mass of the components needed to handle the torque available vs how much space it would take up.

It'll be interesting to see
1. What the final numbers are (torque)
2. How physically large of a component it ends up being
3. If it ends up having a high rating and commercial users squeeze every once out of it, what it's longevity ends up being.
4. They should certainly be "best in class" for fuel mileage

High country front end is looking better IMO....

HP and torque for the diesel - Current L5P carries forward with 910lbs torque and 445HP.
