It's ashame this type of engine isn't already the standard for the GM 2500HD gas trucks...the 6.0L with 385 ft/lbs torque is pitiful in the 3/4 ton truck class.

You would have to be out of your flippin mind to put 12000 pounds behind a half ton. Some one will do it and some one will get hurt or hurt the truck. Come on GM that can't be following the J2807 towing standards.

Ford, General Motors, Ram, and Toyota have agreed to adopt SAE J2807 for the 2013 model year, and Nissan will soon follow.

Toyota has been following since 2010 and the tow rating on my crewmax 4x4 with 5.7 is 9000 pounds. They dropped it from 10000. Sorry but I don't believe GM is following and it's there 2014 model. Nissan may be the only other as I was told the new Titan with the 5.0 cummins is rated for 9800 pounds. A little more believable.
