WOW - 2011 GM HD Pickup Trucks!!

This past week my employer required some of us to go to a training class on GM's new Heavy Duty trucks. I will admit that I was not thrilled about having to go on my day off - luckily I would have to leave early...or I thought I was lucky.
It turns out I wanted to stay and learn more about these new trucks- but couldn't.

I am gathering up some statistics to share - but I can tell you that it will make one sweet tow vehicle!!

I am still waiting to see how much urea these new motors from GM and Ford will use while towing large fivers. Comparing this to my 12MPG average towing with my 6.7L Cummins will be very interesting. Couple the price of these new trucks with the state of the economy and I just don't see them selling a lot of truck in the foreseeable future.
