Power of a 454 with the MPG of a V6!

ReviewVery tough. very powerful. This is my first turbo diesel truck, and I am amazed at how strong it pulls. It climbs the steepest hills without losing speed and without shifting out of overdrive. I acheived 20 MPG on my last trip, which is amazing for a truck that's over 5500 lbs and makes 440 lb/ft of torque. All of the 6.5 TD shotcomings you read about were fixed by the time the 2000 rolled out, so I have had NO trouble whatsoever ... never heats up. The 4 speed HD auto is the toughest out there, and the truck drives like a dream. With $1000 in upgrades, this thing will run like a hot rod!
Best FeaturesTurbo diesel power, efficiency and reliability. Interior comfort, smooth, quiet highway ride. Classic tough-truck styling.
Worst FeaturesSlightly larger cab so seat can go back further. Standard trans temp, boost and exhaust temp gauges would be nice. Standard 4" exhaust and 3" down- pipe.
