Big money as expected.

“This is very much going to be a luxury vehicle which competes against a broad spectrum,” Aldred said Monday on a conference call with reporters.

I feel like they could’ve gone with a better spokesperson and saved some money. People aren’t exactly turning the NBA on in droves these days

Well, sports in general. Lots of lost viewers in general.

You'll probably have to be Lebron James to afford this thing

They're going to get folks excited and ask for 80K on a base model.

Yeah, 4WS isn't new, hell CT6 had it as an option. It's definitely something that the usual off road offerings don't have though.

No surprise, Multi-Pro becomes Multi-Flex for Silverado.

If I recall correctly, the Denali rear steer only had about 2-degrees of turn and was only designed to improve parking and lane change capability. Hummer “crab mode” will have a lot more functionality.

It was around 12 degrees max and would switch modes depending on speed and steering input.

Slow speed = opposing steering for a tighter turn radius (GM tech data claimed Saturn Sedan turning circle).

High Speed = crab steering (same direction), but slow transitions hardly noticeable by any operator.

Geez...2,500lbs added to the 2.7TD due to its better than expected cooling capabilities, and 1,900lbs added to the 3.0TD.

I didn't expect that.

I remember everyone expected impressive towing numbers on the diesel but they had the entire pkg tuned for efficiency. A price cut and better numbers should help.

It's towing is limited by the A10 transmission ratings - went over this and was condemned for pointing it out...

Can't the 6.2 tow more with same transmission? I mean I realize we're approaching numbers light duty folks probably shouldn't be pulling anyway.....
