Notes:

• TorqShift transmission provides crisp, firm shifts and its Tow/Haul feature feels smarter than its competitors
• The 6.0L is highly ridiculed for questionable reliability and a number of problems

• Factory integrated exhaust brake technology
• Relatively poor fuel economy compared to its predecessor as a result of the diesel particulate filter (DPF) system
• Highest peak torque in this comparison

• First Duramax to receive advanced emissions controls
• The 2006 LLY underwent major changes that resulted in an additional 40 lb-ft of torque and 10 horsepower over previous models
