Fantastic truck, excellent power for this vehicle class, and excellent overall value. This truck provides the perfect combination of form and function, providing good fuel mileage and overall capability. The cabin is quiet and well layed out, providing good room for most all passenger sizes. Overall, I would highly recommend this vehicle as it provides nearly full size capability with compact fuel economy of over 20mpg.
The 4.3L V6 is very torquey, providing plenty of go for this vehicle. With the 4L60E transmission providing good performance, and very smooth operation. The truck is more capable than the specs lay out easily handling 1600lbs of payload and capably handling the full towing capacity of 5500lbs.
