I placed my order with the dealer on Tuesday. Thursday is the actual opening of the ordering window this week. Waiting for tomorrow for my order number and hopefully a few more details.

As far as cost is concerned, there was no official price at order time ouside of the fact that MSRP of the diesel is $3730 above the price of a "similarly equipped v6." I'd plan on calling that 38 - 40k depending on options.

I hope their fully loaded for 40k. You can get a SLT 6.7 cummins out the door for 43k. I almost signed for one 2 weeks ago then woke up from my mild retardation thinking.

At that price it's pretty loaded as the diesel is only available on upper trim levels.

Getting rid of my current truck and current DD, making the Colorado fill both roles.

I live in a metro area. The smaller size of the Colorado is really an advantage to me. I also don't need half the truck I have. I tow a car trailer maybe twice a month, and rarely load a ton of stuff in the bed.

I'm still waiting to hear the status of my order. On another forum I have seen some people with confirmed orders.
It seems that anyone attempting today has been getting a message stating it's currently unavailable.
No consensus yet as to what's going on, but it could be a constraint issue. It sounded as though the initial run of the diesel was capped at 50.

Capping the run at 50 is pretty lame. Doesn't make any sense.

That number is still rumor as far as I'm aware, but I have heard it from a few sources.
I know they were wanting to pay particularly close attention to the first of them, but I don't understand how that's any different than their secondary QC check that every production update goes through.
They did just start importing these motors sometime in Q3, maybe the rest of them are still on that slow boat from Thailand.

The most expensive Colorado loaded V-6 window sticker I've seen was $39 and change so a loaded Dmax stands to be 42-43K sticker not OTD.

Damn Robert, about time you showed your ass here.

For some of you guys that don't know Robert Miller; he happens to be the best Duramax tech around. He does all of McRats wrenching and is the only person I allow to work on my truck.
