Safest truck you can drive! Gas mileage
is the only drawback (I get about 13-14
MPG), but utility more than makes up
for poor mileage. Tall vehicle.
Strongly recommend step up bar.
Conversion from SUV to truck is very
easy. Ride is smooth whether on the
road or rough terrain. 285HP engine has
plenty of get up & go. Surprisingly
good turning radius. Ingenious drainage
system ensures water doesn't leak into
the cockpit, even from the folding
midgate. Took a while to get accustomed
to the dimensions. A vehicle I liked
when I bought it, & love more every
time I get behind the wheel. Best
purchase I've ever made & most fun I've
ever had driving a vehicle.
4WD switch on the fly works great in
snow. The tent/airbed accessory (ask
dealer is fun, a real eye catcher, &
fits right into the truck bed. Very
clever! Drainage holes in side bins
allow you to use a bin as an ice-chest
for beverages, etc. Great for tailgate
Proximity sensor/warning from the rear
would be very helpful as back end is
too high to see cars behind you when
backing out of a parking spot. Offroad
package (Z71 package) makes this
disadvantage more noticeable.
