I guess the GM rep is out of the loop too! Not only did they come out with the 2012 early without anyone at GM knowing but they are sneaking the 8.1 under the hood too. Lets see a picture of this new truck!

Comparing it to a full blown top fuel dragster you're right---comparing it to my LBZ Dmax,it's LOUD AS HELL! Sorry,but you will never convince me otherwise.Good solid engine,just flawed in the noise department.

Ive never had a complaint. My neighbor has a DMax and has commented on how quiet my truck is.

Dollars to donuts it's a 6.0. Post a picture of the sticker under the hood that clearly shows it's a 2012 with an 8.1 and I'll eat my words.

OP, please describe the truck with the 8.1, crew/long bed etc./ Allison / single dually......I keep my 2005 8.1 . cause there's no more produced for yrs now, I heard they are maybe even going to stop producing the 8.1 crate motor at GM- I would have to buy aftermarket like Jasper if mine goes bad . They have a new marine bigblock 496 _ can't recall what they call it- but it is a generation 2 496/8.1 that just came out. Take a pix an post it for us.
