Hmm.. Here's hoping GM steps up to the plate with this new gen. of trucks. The other car companies have set the bar high with their new lineups of engines. And +1 for 6 speeds rather than a CVT. +5 if they offer a 6 speed manual in one of these trucks.
Edit: I did some more digging on GM's website.
The new 4.3 V6 will have VVT, Direct injection, 11:1 compression, and will be an aluminum block with aluminum heads. Jesus - They made the old 4.3 awesome again. Light, high compression, and super high output.
All new trucks will have four wheel discs, finally, as well. The rear axles are also being replaced with stronger models to handle the greater power from the new V8 engines.
Simplify, then add lightness.

I like it. Cross between a GMT400 and a GMT900. Also, +1 for building an all new 4.3L V6. $20 says they built it the same way they built the old one

Oh, nice. They're far less ugly than the current gen. They actually look kinda good, better than the Ford and Mopar offerings. Reminds me a lot of the 1990-1996 models.
Here's hoping a halfton can be had with a manual. I don't care how many speeds 'long as I'm rowing them myself.
