ReviewI went truck shopping and drove the competitive model Ford, Toyota, Dodge and Chevy extended cab trucks. I was replacing an F150 that had been a very very good truck for the 7 years I owned it. Not one issue ever. So naturally I was inclined towards the Ford. After driving all the trucks I decided on the Chevy. I likes the power from the 6.0L compared to the Ford which seemed pretty weak in the pwer department. The Toyota used very poor interior materials and rode terrible. The Dodge was nice but the bed was 6.25 feet compared to the others 6.5ft bed. Overall the Chevy offered a great combination of features with the LTZ package and the Vortec Max package.
Best FeaturesThe 6.0L V8 is powerful and on my commute to and from work it averages 19mpg. I also like the remote start and the design of the interior. The Vortec Max package gives you 4 wheel disc brakes which I think is important.
Worst FeaturesOffer the 6 speed automatic, make 4 wheel disc brakes standard and the tie down hooks in the bed are nearly useless.
