The Brembo's GM sells as an option are not the same type of Brembo's you find on performance cars. They are really just "slightly larger calipers and rotors." I say this because a normal high performance Brembo (found on performance Audi's, Porsche, Corvettes, exotics, etc are a matched rotor/caliper that wear together and provided extreme braking performance. This is at the cost of excessive brake dust and very expensive brake jobs (rotors for my RS5 are $2500 just for the fronts!) because you always need replace the rotors when the pads are worn out to maintain the performance level (sometimes you can get away with just pads in the back.) The GM truck setup is just a standard rotor and pad. It will last a long time and wont put brake dust all over the place, but it is not going to deliver the same performance. The funny thing is for me... all of my cars have had real Brembo's for the last 15 years.... so I am finding it so strange when I go wash my Escalade that the front wheels are covered in brake dust. :-o. I guess it is a good change, but if Brembo ever makes a real brake kit for the Escalade I will toss them on (hoping from the V)
GM Authority has an article from the weekend that states there will be no Duramax LM2 engine production through the end of 2021. I'd say that means 100% constrained till Jan at the earliest.Can anyone confirm Duramax constrains? No one has accepted 2022 orders yet - gas or diesel. We really don't know if the diesel is pushed back.
Yes - Lux will be pretty easy to order and get your hands on. Other than that, they can still make a ton of Sport, Sport Plat, Lux Plat loaded up with options and the 6.2 (which most people seem to pick because they don't know just how good the Duramax is.) Basically they go back to what you could get in early 2021: Sport Plat w/ 6.2 and no Supercruise. The Durmax and SC were late availability last year, so 2022 starts the same way. For Power Steps... I am sure an aftermarket company will fill in the gap since there is a huge opportunity. So it isn't THAT bad. Well... that is if you didn't have your heart set on SC and the Duramax.So what are they going to build when 22 production starts?
Luxury and PLux trims with no added options? Im confused….
The constraint list is getting longer and longer smh soon enough a sunroof is going to be a constraint
