My wife and I went over today and looked at a GMC Sierra AT4 6.2l. It was pretty nice and checked all my boxes, I didn’t drive it though. I’ll go over this week and give it a spin. The Denali was nice, but way too much chrome.

How much were they asking for it? I would assume $60K plus and don't forget the 6.2 is premium fuel only......... the LS motors seem to be pretty picky about having the correct octane.

The GM LS/LT can be tuned, has endless aftermarket support, the Hemi does not. FCA Is locking PCM’s via updates when a vehicle is brought in for service or Recalls/campaigns.
G3 Hemis have plenty of aftermarket support. It is not endless like GM's

Not when it comes to Cams and lifters - lifters whether MDS or non MDS are OEM only, cams are not easy to get compared to an LS/LT.

That wont change until they redesign the Hemi block.

There are at least 5 aftermarket manufacturers grinding cams for Hemis-Greene, Comp, Crower, Melling, and Moe's. Aftermarket 5.7, 6.1, 6.4, and 7.0 liter blocks are available. Comp, Melling, Manley, all make lifters and you can also use Hellcat lifters.

Plenty
