2014 Sierra HD 2500 - Is this new stuff ... ?

SUSPENSION
Sierra 2500HD delivers a smoother ride with a fully independent coil-over-shock front suspension and 3-inch wide multistage rear leaf springs, that engage progressively as the load in the bed or the hitch increases.



VARIABLE VALVE TIMING
For strong, steady power to bold acceleration on the highway, the 6.0L V8 with Variable Valve Timing (VVT) is up to any task by:

Monitoring and opening and closing valves for near peak levels of torque across the entire range of engine speeds

Someone messed up on the suspension. On the specs page, it says torsion bar.

And the reason for no extended cabs is because the plant that does that was retooled to make the new half tons

Yes it would be, but not justifiable.

I'm looking at new 3/4 and 1 ton trucks myself. I didn't think I would, but I actually like the extended cab models but can't find any locally setup the way I like. I didn't think it was a big deal until I looked at both GMC and Chevy web sites and saw that they're not making them for 2014.

Maybe I'll get lucky when it's time for me to buy and I'll be able to really search harder and find one I can live with. When I'm dropping that much coin.....I want what I want.

If your dream truck is a diesel, you can add another 20K to that price in Canada.

There are tons of leftover '13 extended cabs here in IN, you can get a crazy deal on one as they simply do NOT sell here, its crew cab or nothing around here! Get on Autotrader and do some searching. Hare Chevrolet in Noblesville IN is the dealer with a lot of sharp snow plow prep ext cabs, not a fan of the dealer but they have the configuration you are after.
