Not sure where to begin, this is my 2nd slade and the best. GM does need to give this monster motor multi-displacement and possibly engine off at idle, but appreciate its ability to run on mid grade nicely and regular in a pinch with no problems. 3rd seat layout is a joke and it went in my mini storage the 2nd day. Exhaust note at idle and low rpm is absolutely beautiful! And at freeway speeds muffler tech. makes the hearty growl disappear (Huh, how'd they do that ?) I've got 6600 miles on this brute and oil life is still projected at 38% left. Pretty cool with factory oil, and it hasn't used a drop.So much more to praise; ride/sound/build/comfort/Power/etc qualities. Platinum model next
Engine, engine, engine !! Sweetest one yet (sans ZR1 motor) Interior , ergonomics, 22's from the factory, exhaust note, great looks, and mostly; Reliability Plus !
Lose some weight and go to IRS for flat floor and lower height. No multi displacement is inexcusable ! Lower rolling resistance tires need to be on this truck as well. 6 spd auto needs to reprogrammed for quicker downshifts at slower speeds. Fuel savings is micro -minimal at 30 mph when in 5th gear
