Sound wouldn't work for me, but my guess is another attempt by you Chevy owners to justify having your truck. Do Ford owners do this on the Duramax site? Just curious.

Some people like to see different comparisons at different altitudes.

awwww...we each buy a truck that fits our individual needs. If we want to get technical about which is better. An umpteenth generation goverment funded GMC eeks out a few seconds over a first generation manufacturer produced truck/engine/tranny. I would have to conclude that for a first shot at producing all components of the truck, it is a resounding success. The gmac with 60% new internals is stretched, lets see them get 60, 100k miles on them pulling. The 6.7 is working well below its threshold and I expect it to become more refined producing more power over the next few years. The end result is going to be competition producing better trucks for the guys who use em.

Well a friend of mine owns a large water line service co. north of Abilene and has 9 '11 LMLs. They all average 10k a month and 2 already have over 50k and not a problem one. The trucks get the chit worked out of them. I guess they will go over 50K towing. I liked my Ford but IMO the GM had more to offer with a more refined combo. After Ford gets this 6.7 tuned right from the factory I might be back again.

A few things worth noting here...

They tested the Mega Cab for Dodge, which is going to be the heaviest and slowest.
They tested the King Ranch Ford, then complained that is was the most expensive.
They tested the Chevy on the grade and then stated it spent more time at WOT than the Ford.

Simply put, this was just another test, where folks who don't drive these trucks for a living/daily. They have no idea the long term effects of high EGT's of WOT on a grade like that have on an engine, or the importance of reliability in the frame and drive line. Look at what the private contractors, and small businesses are using for trucks. Its the Ford, hands down.
