Duramax Denali HD

'13 Duramax pulls the boat like a dream. Hit cruise and let her go.

Thanks,
800NM or 590 lb-ft of torque with an 8-speed automatic is quite fun, quiet at high speeds too not for tight turning country roads, but great for long distance Autobahn, about 20mpg towing

Thanks, supposedly because of diesel fuel quality problems (sulphur) neiter Porsche, Audi or VW are selling the V8 TDI in North America.

Upgraded the tow vehicle from the 2005 F250 6.0 PowerStroke to a 2010 F350 6.4 PowerStroke. Shouldn't have a problem pulling the PS 197TT...

Great choice! I also upgraded from a '06 6.0L to a '10 6.4L. Throw on a tuner, intake, and DPF-deleted exhaust and your truck will thank you.
