I would have hoped to hear that they would have put tons of time testing near GCWR through Death Valley in the middle of the summer. Once an engine is up and running and warm, the cold becomes somewhat irrelevant. Keeping an engine alive and performing well in extreme heat, especially near the limits is much more challenging.

Much more relevant for the climate I live in than the oil fields of Alaska, but I suppose they probably buy more trucks up there than we do here in the desert southwest.
