I have a loaded '07 LTZ that I traded the intial '02 Z71 for. Loved the first one so much after 5 year and 92K miles, I had to have the new one. There are huge improvements to this GMT900 version in all areas including comfort, accessories, performance, handling, and fuel mileage. The new Active Fuel Mgmt system gives 16.5- 17.0 MPG City and 18.8-20.4 Hwy. It has retained most of the good things the original had with better features. Still too pricey at a $45K list.
Beautiful design (inside and out), XM Radio, Nav system, Backup camera, comfort, DVD player....and the best ride on the planet. Still mostly a truck function but with car-like handling, comfort and features
Bring back the tinted windshield visor strip, the dual truck bed lights and the rear foot-step bumper and add a 6- speed automatic transmission like the Caddy Escalade Ext.
