I'm quoting right from the 2014 2500/3500 sales brochure, which I have right here. So many conversations on here about GVWR, payload, towing capacity, etc. I want to know what I'm talking about before I jump in. Lots of conversations lead to nothing at all.

Ah! Found it.

Duramax Weight? - Chevy and GMC Duramax Diesel Forum

If the forum posts are correct, the big 6 liter and the Duramax weigh about the same at about 900 pounds. The diesel has aluminum heads and the big block gasser does not.

The Allison Trans weighs in at another 380 or so pounds.

that conversation was about the old 8.1 gas, which was a BEAST. The 6.0 is aluminum head so probably a bit lighter.
