ReviewTruck is very comfortable to ride in on long trips. It has descend power and torque. Truck was not real reliable. Transmission went out around 100000 and i do not tow with truck.Truck could not keep tie rods on.replaced tierods and ball joint every 25-30 thousand miles and tie rod keep braking.I have never use 4wheel dr.
The milage is not good. i know its a v8 4x4 but averaging 7.5 to 9 city and 12 highway is pretty dang poor. I set the cruise on the highway between 65 and 70. i live in a town of 20,000 people so there is not a lot of stop n go traffic and the closed freeway is an hour and a half away.
i drive with a light foot and never let the truck get above 3000 rpm unless i am passing
Best FeaturesI love the seat on lon trips and the low end power the 5.3l offers. Easy to drive and not a lot of blind spots for a full size truck.
Worst FeaturesFront end need redesigned. Should not have to replace ball joint and tierods every 25-30 thousand miles. I have never had it in 4 wheel drive. Motor is close to firewall making it extremely difficult to get two of the spark plugs out.
