True enough.There must be something wrong with my eyes. It looks like it says $76,000 FOR A 1/2 TON TRUCK . Congratulations!!
Will be a beautiful truck, and your review and insights will be appreciated. I don't know what's better - long-term unknown hybrid tech reliability and cost, or, unknown SCT diesel tech reliability and cost. Class 8 diesels with SCT haven't been a confidence builder - you can keep SCT diesels on the road past warranty, but only given enough money and a shop that knows what's it doing. The days of buying a diesel and getting 300k miles out of it with routine maintenance while addressing well known issues with relatively simple fixes are over. I believe my L5P has 5 EGTs alone in the exhaust stream. Any one goes down, you are coded or limped. Same for all the pre- and post-charge tube intake air temp sensors. Less reliable, more expensive to buy and own, harder/often impossible to work on or fix yourself - sign me up. How the hybrids match up - and they are/will be the future of all full sized trucks - will be interesting.
ya, its taking a bit longer than anyone thought it would last summer.Friend works at a GM dealer. Yesterday he said that if they order a high level trim truck right now it's going to be close to 2 years before it arrives. Can't get ECMs for them. Low and mid-level trim is still rolling though. Makes 6 months not look so bad.
