That sucks, I love the Denali look if it were a crewcab 4ws and could pull 9k + I'd have one.

I like the looks of GM trucks more than Ford.

The 1500HD, with 6.0L/3.73 sounds great. I have a 2500HD Crew 6.0L/4.10. The gas mileage is terrible (13 MPG). I wouldn't want to use it as a daily driver. I think the 3.73 would help the MPG and still be good for towing.

I had a 1500 Ext. Cab 5.3L/3.73. I got better MPG when towing than I get with the 2500 empty. I'm only towing 5-6K though. If you are driving the truck every day and only towing occasional short distance, you may get by with a 1500.

If the 1500HD is a 6.0/ 3.73 then why buy the regular 2500? I have a 2500 Suburban with the 6.0/ 3.73 which sounds like the same thing??? It's tow rating is low, but it does just fine up to 10,000#. Is the load capacity different (ex. tongue weight?)

NOTICE THE DIFFERENT GVWR'S AND AXLE RATINGS....... they wouldn't make a 1500hd if it was just the same thing with a different axle ration when they already offer that axle ratio in the 2500hd.......
