Bruce’s ride is a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Duramax Diesel, it is the first year that GM put the L5P diesel engine in.
He purchased it in September 2017 and like anything new (engine wise) it had issues that had to be resolved with the dealership. Numerous engine lights and trips back and forth to the dealership I think we can safely say that as of today, no further issues, fingers crossed.
It pulls our 10K pound Cougar with no problem at all. With a hitch weight of 1990 Bruce was concerned so we went for a test fit before taking her home. I think he is still debating on whether or not to install airbags on the truck. I have a feeling it will be something we do in the future just for a smoother, more level over all ride.
