Manual transmission, midsize. That's why.

Oh look, C&D posted its first drive of the Silverado/Sierra HD models.

http://www.caranddriver.com/previews...sierra-hd.html

Quote:
The HD starts at $24,575 for the work-truck stripper model, but if we had to live with a big truck, we’d spend an extra $4000 for a more-comfortable LT (Chevy) or SLE1 (GMC) model. Compared with the light-duty models of similar cab/bed/trim, the HDs are about $3400 more, but for that extra coin you get the 353-hp, 6.0-liter V-8 standard. If you want that torque-crazy diesel, get ready to pay an additional $7195.
I'd rather have a base model Silverado HD than a base model Tundra for the same price -- 6-speed automatic too.

The new Duramax diesel variant is 6.6 liters large and offers 365 horsepower and a monstrous 660 pound-feet of torque, while emitting less noise and fewer emissions than the Duramax in its predecessor. The diesel also comes mated to the tried-and-true six-speed Allison 1000 automatic transmission.

Less noise than the previous duramaxes? Jesus fuck, you could barely hear the old ones run/tell it was a diesel

But the Toyota will make 50k miles without breaking a sweat, unlike the sloberado, which will require 17 visits to the dealer in the first year to fix a problem they won't acknowledge as being a problem nor will fix until they're forced to buy back at least 50% of the original run under lemon laws.

QFT, those motors are very quiet(for a diesel) and powerful at the same time.

My roomates dad has an '05 Silverado with 60K miles on it, and it hasn't been to anything but the oil change shops

my father owns a construction company and only ones that required frequent visits to the dealerships were the ford diesels....

I would've been surprised, 'cept for the 6.0's, they didn't seem to work too well.

That only applies to cars. Toyota has much to learn from GM in regards to trucks, GM's bread and butter product
