Ok, there are so many cool features its hard to pick my favorites, but I want to post the ones I find interesting from the list provided to us by @BahamaTodd One disappointing news item, it appears only 400 watts of onboard A/C, so enough to charge cordless drills is about it...

* Hitch guidance with Hitch view (with Image adjustment) Does this mean we can we can rotate the view when backing up to a trailer? I often get glare on sunny days with my 2020 GMC, and if we could adjust the view might be able to mitigate the glare?

* Storage bags for Infinity roof panels are included

So you can actually Pan/Zoom/Tilt the hitch view camera. Just pulled this off our 2022 HD trucks for more clarification. It's the same RPO code so will function the exact same way.

Has anyone seen any info anywhere yet on the additional vehicle height with the Roof Light Bar? I saw some photos somewhere and it looked pretty snug to the roofline.

I have not seen anything yet, but if you take the spare tire, you lose the power tonneau cover... Hmmm...

I get it... You have to be careful.
Just glad someone found it and posted it. I tried to get a video of it for you, but wouldn't you know it no HD trucks on our lot right now.
Haha, same up here, hard to find an HD that has landed and not sold. I think there is a trend of many 1500 customers moving to HD's as they just offer so much more capability for not that much more money.

Oh absolutely it is becoming a trend. More payload, towing and bed length. Having a standard bed standard on these 2500HDs is really what gets people switching here. A 1500 crew cab short box is 69.92 inches in bed length and the most commonly available truck configuration. You get 82.2 inches of bed with the 2500. That is a big deal around here.

Ya, I noticed that when I bought my 2020, its longer then my previous 2011, and wider in the bed too. The Duramax - 10 speed is hard to beat too, that is a great powertrain combo.

I remember seeing digital key standard even in the EV2 when they originally posted all the trims on the reservation page. It is no longer seen anywhere. I would love to not have to carry around a key I love the cars that have just the credit card to carry around. Any word on if this will still be standard?

also, I hope they have the assist steps standard on models under the 1st edition. It always bothered me that running boards were not standard on Chevy trucks while it was standard on Ford trucks. I have a reservation for the 2x and ev3 but haven’t decided which one to go with yet. Would be nice to see all standard Equipment on each trim so it’s easier to know whether I should just spend the extra $10k for certain standard items or just go for the 2x and option in one or two things

GM knows which items are the value added features, and always packages to encourage you to take the big upgrade packages to get the features you want.

As for digital key, I am hot and cold on that feature, no loss if it is not included...IMO, My Tesla is very hit and miss, and I often approach the car and have to wait for it to connect to my phone and unlock (5 to 10 seconds). As for the card, that is a joke IMO, have to get it just right on the B pillar to unlock the car, and the get it just right on the cupholder to start, I carry it as an emergency, but hope to never use it. The old key FOB is hard to beat, and most people need to carry keys anyway, for house, office, or mailbox.

Was hoping to see the wheel pictured below (with bronze "bead-lock" look accent) as standard rather than the RCS 18" x 9" black aluminum with machined accents. Bummer (n) Wonder when the below wheel is being offered?

That wheel always showed as late arrival for 2023 Model year.
