Hey all, I just got myself a 2021 RST 3.0. Coming from a 2018 2500hd so this should be interesting.

I've started this thread for a general opinion from myself about this truck. I'll try to regularly post and keep updating it as time moves on.


Alright first review. Love being in a half ton the ride is very nice. The 3.0 is really quiet and well mannered with decent power for passing on the highway. My first tank of fuel came out at 24.8 mpg (canadian) ill note that it was crazy windy for the first 2/3 rds of the trip.

Undercoated what i could in the drive way today. Once I get a straw or something for the spray cans I'll go and under coat between inner and outer box over top the rear wheels. It can be accessed very easily by the three rubber caps in the box.

What are you use for undercoating?

Mitch, I think there's a small "Duramax" on the hood sides, like the LMMs/LMLs used to have.

I see it now that you mention it, Tom. Almost completely camouflaged by the reflection in the shiny paint. I thought I remembered there being a duramax badge at my glance, I just saw the Z71 badge and thought I'd ask.

Put some miles on the truck this past weekend.

On the way there my speed was 105 kph up to 115 kph and that got me 29 mpg.

On the way back I kept it at 100 kph as much as possible and I was able to squeeze 31.75 mpg out of it.

I haven't got milage like this in a half ton since my old 6.2 diesel lol, and it didn't have power like this thing.

Very pleased with the truck so far.

Also I picked up an banks idash gauge for it and will update on that later.

Anymore updates Jakezed22? I purchased a 2022 RST with the 3.0 and will pick it up tomorrow 1/12. Will be a weekend driver and use it to pull my 6k lb. camper around this coming summer. I don't believe that there were any changes between 21 and the pre 22 LTD trucks.
