Have owned 4 other 'Burbs, this one is awesome. 4000 miles in first month. Should of bought it sooner. Excellent brakes, unlike prior models. 6.0 is a pleasant surprise. Doesn't ride like a 3/4 ton but tows like a 1 ton. Love the dash & A/C vent layout. Push button 4x4, way cool & AutoTrac already kept me on track once. Towing an ElDorado on a car trailer in terrain ranging from 1500' to 6000' I avg 10.5 mpg. With the 5 of us and luggage,(nothing towed) I saw 14.5 mpg on flat land. These are real numbers & I didn't spend time in the right lane. Besides, if you don't realize bigger is safer, and can't handle the gas bill, this isn't for you.
4 wheel disc brakes, side airbags, T/V, 4 captian chairs, spare outside, sound system, leather interior, build quality, ice cold A/C, easy & enjoyable to drive, factory tow package, 6.0 powerband different (higher RPM) than 7.4 but much, much more. In short, I like EVERYTHING about it.
NorthStar overrated & to much money. Where's the Duramax? Not all diesel fans can use a p/u. More rear cargo room needed. When you see a 73-91 burb, you KNOW it's a burb, GM needs to find that attitude again & apply it to the exterior. Trucks included.
