I know the world has be asking for Chevy trucks to have round wheel wells instead of squared off ones. But it just doesn't look right now that they have done it. I'll get used to it though and can see myself retiring the 07 Avalanche around 19-20 for one of the new offerings.

If it can't tow the X30 as good or better than the 5.3 there's not much point in it for me. I'd love to see a mid-sized diesel for a mid-size price but don't see that coming. The Ford/GM co-developed transmission is interesting. I'd really love to have all those tie down options in the bed!

IM curious to see how it will compare to the 6.2L when it comes to towing. Im sure it will get better MPGs but will it have that much more torque?

Everyone here already knew that!

The real question is what will be towed behind it by then.

The 6.2 will be superior for towing from a performance standpoint.

Torque for a 3.0 diesel is going to be in the mid 400's. Same as the gas. Where the gas starts to shine is throttle response, more horsepower, and not having to deal with smoke limits.

Figuring out how it will be rated is easy. Look and Ram, then Ford, then extrapolate and you have GM. so expect around 11,000-12,000 pounds towing. Tow rating dont mean much though. look at GVWR and then back calculate what you actually can tow legally.
