Default So today I went to the dealership...

I test drove a 2006 Duramax with the 6 speed Allison trans. 360HP and 600 and some LB/FT of torque.

I was impressed it was pretty peppy, and would easily put it sideways around a corner. Low end felt like it had some nice grunt.

The coolest feature was the new shifting. On the DIC you see PRNDM1. When you shift it into M it changes to all you see is 6 5 4 3 2 1 and on the shifter there is a + and - button to manually change gears. Kinda neat.

But anyway the truck stickered out at 45k with very few options.

The dealer wanted to give me 19k for my 2003.

3 years and it lost more than half of its value...holy ****. I thought trucks were supposed to hold their values. Oh well. It was fun but i'll stick with my piece of junk.

Bottom Line: New truck is kinda neat but Chevy's suck(beat ya to it Greasymonkey)
