Apr 4, 2021 | 07:15 1 Wow the truck and Suv can be ordered now from GMC.
Not sure what the retail is, 300 tp 350 mile range, but features... and looks good. Reply With Quote
Apr 4, 2021 | 07:46 2 Read somewhere $110000 for the new EV Hummer....don't know if that's USD or CDN .... Reply With Quote
SASKFARMER's Avatar Apr 4, 2021 | 07:51 3 The Hummer is awesome.

oh, the vehicle is nice also.

They have a new Yukon with a Diesel.

Some on here have the new diesel half-ton from GMC Reply With Quote
Apr 4, 2021 | 08:40 4 Have the half ton diesel. Unreal mileage.

Any trip to town and back is 30 mpg. Long trips with no wind is 40 mpg. Beats the window sticker by a healthy margin. Definitely a sleeper in GM’s lineup. Reply With Quote

    Til the turbo goes out at 3000K like the neighbors or you have to pull the motor to change the timing belt at 130000K. I am not sold on these baby Duramaxs yet. Reply With Quote
    Apr 4, 2021 | 09:22 6 A timing belt in a diesel? Hardly heavy duty..... Reply With Quote
    Apr 4, 2021 | 09:58 7 Boy need some fact checks here. Oil pump belt not timing belt and its 150,000 mile check. 240,000 kms. They change it cause they in there. Doubt anyone will change or check it.

    Yes your right, I meant to say oil pump belt. They say it is still easier to pull the motor. Reply With Quote

    When you say that at 240K they are in there, do you mean they are rebuilding the engine at that point or heads? Reply With Quote
    Apr 4, 2021 | 11:39 10 Re Soddy. The oil pump drive belt needs changed at 240K km. It’s in the oil pan. Need to pull the engine or tranny to do it. Reply With Quote

    Actually an oil pump belt
    Tranny needs to be slid back at 240000 km
    I will not get there
    Did you know you have to take cab off of the big duramax trucks to change head gasket
    They all have problems believe me I checked
    But no others get 40mpg Reply With Quote

  • Apr 4, 2021 | 12:20 13 So what kind of hp and torque compared to a 5.3? Reply With Quote
    Apr 4, 2021 | 12:21 14 Urban gardeners will go for the new GMC electrics ( wonder what Ford will have).
    Rural farmers will still need gas or diesel for a while yet. Reply With Quote
    Apr 4, 2021 | 12:24 15 Have a gmc Denali with 3.0 litre diesel. Love the truck. Averaging 8.2 litre/100 km. Reply With Quote
    Apr 4, 2021 | 13:39 16 Have one also. 44 mpg best trip so far. Usually 30-35 mpg any day all day. Don’t have to worry about a 240,000 km oil pump belt, will be down the road once warranty is off anyways. Ole man just bought one too. GM has it figured out. 277 hp and 460 ft-lbs. Reply With Quote

    Hummer ev

    830 horse power, 300+ miles range

    Full load $110,000 Reply With Quote
    blackpowder's Avatar Apr 4, 2021 | 15:51 18 Anyone ever figure out their cost of ownership per km before they factor fuel?
    Difference between 20 & 30 mpg about 12000? L over 300,000km.
    I usually don't pay more than 9- 10 cents/km to buy them slightly used. One set of plugs usually the only repair on a 5.3 to get 300k of use.
    TV of $ pays for the extra fuel over time along with less depreciation?
    Fwiw I've never paid more than $24k for a vehicle.
    I will however throw those calcs out the window in 3 years when I start spending winters south LoL.
    Good info on that belt thing. Reply With Quote

    My old Duramax had 475000K when the injectors finally gave out, injectors worth more than the truck. Don't get the part about dumping a truck after the warranty has run out. Can't have much faith in it if that is the case?

    How many of you are taking the chance of running purple through it, or is that still a thing to worry about? Reply With Quote
    Apr 4, 2021 | 17:19 20 160,000 kms is long enough for my daily driver. Yes warranty on the engine is same as the big 6.6L duramax. Reply With Quote
    Apr 4, 2021 | 18:05 21 This diesel option on this one I ordered was only $1785 extra
    Diesel still gets $.12 prov rebate Reply With Quote

    Apr 4, 2021 | 19:03 24 Tesla takes bit coin. Good thing, eh? Bitcoin was under $10 for years, even was 2 cents. Can you believe a new truck for 2 cents? today, 1 bitcoin is $72,648 CDN.

    Apr 5, 2021 | 08:00 26 If you need to get past some one on the highway, does the diesel have the get-up-and-go of the 6.2 gas? Reply With Quote

    277 hp verses 420 hp. I would guess no. Reply With Quote

    Why settle for less? Reply With Quote
    Apr 5, 2021 | 10:01 29 As long as it has more get up and go than a 6.2 diesel or the 5.7 diesel. Those were gems. Reply With Quote

    "GM has it figured out. 277 hp and 460 ft-lbs."

    That be same torque as the 6.2L at 4100 RPM. 5.3L = 383Lb-Ft @ 4100RPM. What RPM for the 3.0L torque?

    How does it drive/accelerate, those of you who have one? did you compare a gas to it? Think the 3.0L Diesel and 6.2L gas are same option cost. Both 10 speeds.
