This has been a great truck. It has
plenty of power with the 8.1 motor and
the Allision transmission. I am
thinking of tradeing it in only to
replace it with the same truck but with
the Duramax diesel. I wish that the gas
motor would do a little better on MPG.
I can get around 12 MPG on the high way
not towing. If I pull my 10,000 lb.
trailer the best it can do is 8.5 MPG.
I have talked to owners of the duramax
and they can get 20 MPG!!!
I like my big block and it has plenty
of power but, gas is over $2.00 a
gallon now so what can I do? I did not
want to spend the extra $6000 for the
diesel when I bought my truck.
This is one nice riding truck. For a 1
ton truck to ride like it does is a
dream. The seats are great for those
long highway rides. I also think that
this is the best looking dually that
Chevy has ever offered with its smooth
bed sides and raised stance.
The only improvement that I could ask
for is better gas mileage. I now that I
have almost a 500 cuin. motor but,I
think that it could do a little better.
I have tried a few upgrades but, they
did not seem to help. Over all a SUPER
truck, buy one you'll love it too!!
