Interesting seeing how they are put together. Just one error was they say there are only the 2.7L turbo and 5.3 gas available when there is also the 3.0L Duramax.

And as they show a 6.2, V6, and duramax being built in the video. :tongue:

Not really sure what V6 we saw but that was a dual cam one...

You beat me to it... :tiphat:

Roughly 8:06 - 9:22 or so, you see the 3.0 Duramax engines.

I'm surprised there's as much human-based assembly as there is... specifically in powertrain assembly.
Great video -- thx, Moose! :tiphat:

Wish there was more of the 3.0 DMax. It kinda reminded me of the 4.2 Atlas :smile:

It looks like what I'd expect, based on how I've seen Honda do it. You can automate a lot but still need a lot of in person work.
