Default Let's talk trucks (GM)

So, I've been thinking about getting a new one. The TCG tow rig might get retired, she's aging badly and rusting. Either I will put the 6.0 in the Camaro or just sell it as is.

So, my options I'm thinking about...

Crew Cabs

12-13 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali
14-17 GMC Sierra SLT or Silverado LTZ

Only in white, silver, gray exteriors and black interiors.


I'm a cheap ass, but I've found a couple I like. One is a '12 Denali with 85k and the other, well that's interesting... it's a '17 Sierra SLT with 25k but it's a rebuilt/Salvage.

Denali entices me with the 6.2, and possible LSA swap it might endure...


The 14-17 models, well because I like the body and its newer and a learning curve for me.

Go on the hunt and toss some of those my way.

My 2015 Silverado LTZ had the 5.3 with 3.42. I always felt it needed the 6.2. If I were to do it over I would have gotten the 6.2/8 speed.

And that Denali I listed was $22k the 17 was $30k.

If done right, lsa swap could be under 4500

I'm talking about my 2015 chevy, not my 2018 GMC. The chevy was stock for most of the time I had it.

Ford trucks never appealed to me, and same goes for other brands/models.

Some of these new ones are hideous too.

So no 2500....

I'd 5.3 and boost that since you already mentioned it. Plenty of ways to do that on the cheap.

Honestly having an 8 speed I wouldn't worry about it. Get the proven 6 speed and save your dollars.

Both the newer 14-17 and the 6.2 Denali has 6L80e. Only difference is how much the fun-o-meter would be.

I'm not old, and I still like a quick ride. I haven't researched anything on the newer LT based engines. The 6.2 is still LS based, and should be fun in factory form.

Besides, I still an on focusing on the Camaro. But I'm down 1 ride and DD my 03 Xterra... Crv still is down with no oil pressure and I blowddeeedd up the 4.56 gear in the truck AGAIN.
