    If ram put the 6.4 HEMI in the 1500, I’ll be the first one in line to buy it. That is hands down the best engine on the market. Our old mega cab with the 6.4, wish I’d never sold it.

    Better yet, Ram is adding their raptor killer with the hellcat engine. Next year I believe.

    Default New Chevy Front End

    Speaking of which, holy shit!

    $69k for a 1500? That's asinine. I paid $55k for my loaded LTZ 3500 Duramax. And you can do an awful lot with the $12k difference between these 2 trucks. Like a down payment on a new Makai!
    The ďChevy ShakeĒ is a vibration harmonic that you hit at speeds between 71-78mph. 3 guys at work have 2014-2018ís that do it.

    GM does not have a solution for it and never will. Itís due to the designed rigidity of the frame and they canít change it now. About 20% of trucks are in the specification that causes the vibration.

    I mean who drives a truck at 71-78mph....... lol.

    GM will try everything like......

    Balance tires
    Rotate tires
    Balance driveshaft
    New rims
    New shocks
    New rear axles
    Even have seen them strain gage the drivers seat frame to measure the vibration

    Yet ZERO will fix it and GM engineers know what it is but canít mask it enough, but somehow they avoid recall and replace.

    Itís not a safety issue, but it is an annoying issue and will kill someoneís resale. Most trade in and dump them on the used market and dealers pray nobody test drives it between 71-78mph.

    My buddies truck when he adds his trailer drops the vibe range to 62-69mph which is better for him at highway speeds.

    Heard the new model does not do it.

    At 900k 1/2 ton GM trucks sold each year, 180k have this condition x 5 years of production is 900k of these trucks in circulation.

    Weird. I've never experienced it, so I guess it must be very specific, as you say.

    Lots of claims where guys have the fix. I donít believe some regular joe can fix it, when GM engineering canít even do it.

    But if you did have the fix, you could be very rich.

    Goofy grills and chevy-shakes. Not sounding good for GM.

    I will clarify, the 2019+ should not have the Chevy Shake, just the previous 2014-2018 generation.

    The Chevy high country package has always been hideous. Over the top chrome and Huge badging.

    Similar to the Ford King Ranch and Ram Longhorn, all are gaudy and over badged.

    Old guys love chrome and BIG ďlook at meĒ badges.
