Like what I'm seeing in the engines. So I guess that is basically the truck version of the LT1, which the C7 Vette and 6th gen Camaro are getting?

Also, it looks like the 4.3L V6 is now an aluminum engine and based off the modern V8 architecture? No longer the old one based off the Vortec 350 from 15-20 years ago, right?

I like what i see but the GMC is better looking of the two IMO. Interior is a good step up looks great in both trucks but i will say the Gauge pod looks similar to whats in a F150 no? I also how that the 6.2 gets shoved in a reg cab short bed version to compete with ram cause the express is selling very well i see alot of those on the road heck i bought one. But i will take a stab at my guess for hp and tq # for all three motors 4.3 will have around 290 to 315 hp and 305 to 330 tq. The 5.3 will prolly have 360 to 380 hp and 400ish tq. And the 6.2 prolly 425 to 435 hp and 450+ tq. Just and estimate. Oh and i hope they get a 8speed auto compete as well.

Not even close. No bodywork shared whatsoever between the GMT-900s and K2XXs.

What a let down for me in the looks department. I've never bought chevys for looks anyhow. Hopefully the goodies under the skin make up for the looks.

It's only been out 4 years, and only 3 years in the f150s. There were some changes made to the 2103 ecoboosts to cure the shudder issue.

GM's lack of a redesign for so long, and then to tout this as a major redesign, is the biggest joke of the last decade.

If that were the case why not extend it to saving GMC as a whole? (EDIT: My 'Decade' quip meant the biggest design/product decision between 2000-2010.. and if that were the case THE BIGGEST FOULUP WOULD BE KILLING THE F-BODY IN '02!!!?!?1 )

My whole argument was that they should have killed GMC, dumped the whole house into Chevrolet and gone worldwide with the Chevrolet Brand as a truck brand to compete with Toyota..

Tall order yes, but think about what would be possible if Chevrolet launched an uptrim level of the Traverse, Equinox, and Silverado to supplant the Denali and compete with the King Ranch and Big Horn? The need for GMC would be nonexistant at that point.

Other side of the coin would be to kill the Silverado, Nox, and Traverse and leave all trucks to GMC and launch it as a global brand.

Not sure if sarcasm or serious..

But on topic: Sales are the true vindicator of whether or not GMC and Chevrolet can coexist in the long run. They did it with Buick and Cadillac..

Though there is a ways to go still before the XTS can compete with cars like the 7 series and high end executive Mercedes.

But then Buick or Olds, or Pontiac dealers would have had to sell Chevys. GMC is your "across the board" truck so that Caddy and Buick dealers could sell trucks too without having to be a Chevy dealer. At least this was what I was told long ago.

Maybe now with lesser amounts of brands it may not matter, but back then it certainly made a difference.

But if you drop GMC, then get the ugly off the Silverado and make it LOOK like a GMC, and I'd buy it. Either truck would be pretty much functionally the same, but the GMC looks better IMO.

Serious.

Cadillac and Buick are different products. One is supposed to be GM's answer to the Germans and the other GM's answer to the Japanese. Sierra and Silverado are not different products (even though GM will tell you otherwise).

The XTS is a wonderful car but it is indeed a long way off from competing with the 7-series and S-class cars. Having said that, it's a really good deal compared to German cars. I know, I know.....
