I actually got much better fuel economy with the 6.2 versus the 5.3 and the 6.2 had over 100 more HP. Can't argue with that!!

Won't work... we need an SUV (three kids and a dog), and getting a Duramax in a Sub is like finding a willing third for a weekend romp.

I've heard that several times now... looking forward to the change, when ever it might occur.
