This is a vastly underappreciated morsel! Been chuckling over this one for a while :D

Just picked this up today with the 3.0 Turbo Diesel. Traded in a 2018 SLT 5.3 Z71 w/26k that I loved, but they gave me a deal I couldn’t refuse, so it was a no brainer. I’m skeptical of this new engine as I’ve always had gas trucks, so anything that anyone can share with experience would be greatly appreciated. And yes, I know it uses diesel fuel. Lol

I know a couple of people who have a new 3.0 and there are 2-3 threads on this site regarding those motors. People seem to love them!

Oh sure make fun of my last diesel road vehicle. It ran great for many years, as soon as I put the gas 350 in it. Aahh yes, 1983... :)
