The hardware was codeveloped but neither shared notes on programming. Same goes for the FWD 9 speed auto they worked together on.

I have been demoing a 2021 Silverado 6.2L with the 10 speed and its very smooth. Its a rocket off the line with that combo in the GM.

I also drove a raptor a few weeks back for a few days to test it out (only ford I would buy) and its such a fun truck. I didn't notice any difference in the shifting from the tranny.

Im on the fence with which one is getting my money

the oil pump is belt-driven and requires transmission removal to replace every 100k according to @1redTA

Thanks for the link - not sure why that didn’t come up when I searched!
I believe it’s a 150k interval. That’s the only negative I’m aware of. Otherwise, it gets rave reviews. Hoping to hear some real-world experience.

I test drove one when I was shopping. Overall I thought the engine was great on power and smoothness. The transmission was not noticeable, so it was fine. In a straight line, I believe the Duramax was very peppy. TFL trucks had it clocked faster than the 5.3L in the 1/4 mile.

In the end, I bought the F150 3.0 Powerstroke because the Ford was so much nicer inside. Also, the PS motor has been around since 2009 (in Land Rover) and had a 3 year history.

Overall, I am really happy with the diesel. It has plenty of power and I'm avg 23 mpg in city driving. Only had a few short (less than 60 mile road trips), but seems like it would be 28-30 at 75mph. Also, my PS is the smoothest engine that I remember owning.

Go test drive one to see for yourself. https://www.duramaxforum.com/forums/...owertrain.715/
