That’s true, engine or tranny makes sense. Damn near impossible to dump anything from a loader in an avalanche/Silverado EV without destroying the bed. That you do need an 8 foot bed or trailer for, know that from experience, I borrowed a trailer a couple times. I don’t mean to judge anyone personally, I got the Escalade for the same reason I want the Silverado EV, eight foot bed and crew cab. I’ve never owned a short bed other then the Escalade not converted. I’ve gotten by with six foot beds but always had the tailgate down when anything serious happened like hauling lumber, furniture or motorcycles. Pretty much all I ever got in the back of the Escalade unconverted would be boxes, groceries, tools, dogs and rubbish. I always wished the Escalade bed was half a foot longer unconverted to fit my gorilla ladder without popping the last cover or tailgate down. Frunk will be great for a lot of that stuff. A lot of trucks run around now just as people haulers with minimal bed use, that’s why I’ve always wondered why they don’t buy a suburban. I understand why they don’t want vans, but damn if they aren’t useful with the low load floor and people hauling. The suburban was an even better hauler with barn doors.
