With that massive frontend and the bold, in-your-face grille and headlight combo it’s either a love it or hate it appearance. Whether or not you like the new looks on the 2020 trucks, there is no denying the incredible performance from that L5P Duramax, especially now that it’s backed with an impressive 10-speed automatic transmission.
