Pardon my stepping in Geek, but...
"SELECT OPTIONAL FEATURES....
Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo Diesel with 260 hp, 525 lb.-ft. torque and B20-Diesel compatibility"
I drove a new 2013 4500 cutaway w/ box and the same engine/trans combo, but pushing a LOT more air, from Milwaukee to New Orleans. Total weight with the equipment in the back of about 12-13,000 lbs. Pulled strong, nice 6-speed auto, felt like it would handle a trailer also
(which it will need to do on occasion) w/ no problem.
I think a 3500 with that drivetrain would be a sweet toy hauler.
Black care rarely sits behind the rider whose pace is fast enough.
Fact is, I like roads. I like to move.
