pickuptrucks.com chose the 2012 GMC Sierra 3500 as best in class again, this time it was the Heavy-Duty Hurt Locker where they pitted the latest version HD crewcab diesels, (2011 Ford, 2011.5 Dodge, 2012 GMC) in a towing comparison competition.

GM upgraded HD Silverado & Sierra GMT900 again, one last time ? I took last week off, we started 2012 crewcab HD production yesterday and I found this bulletin at work last night. We've been building 2012 saleable pilot models for months though.

If GM is beating the competition with thier old truck platform it makes me wonder about the next generation pickups. I expect a more comfortable ride, improved MPG, better interior fit & finish,... all without sacrificing power & performance. GM plans to spend $328 million to upgrade the Flint Truck Assembly plant this year and next.

Check out the videos and specs at Heavy-Duty Hurt Locker
"The Hurt Locker includes driving up two of the nastiest mountain climbs in the U.S. from hot summer temperatures of more than 100 degrees in the Arizona desert to the oxygen-starved peaks of the Colorado Rockies, 11,000 feet above sea level. Through it all, we measured fuel economy, acceleration, power and braking and evaluated the confidence that each truck gave its driver."
