I own two of these trucks. They were
bought in Dec 1999. Both have been
driven on long vacation trips from
Texas to Florida. The Sport has a 4.7
Liter V8 which is easy on the gas and
very peppy. The other is a SLT with a
5.9 Liter V8 and the full towing
package to enclude towing capacity to
9000 lbs. As could be expected the gas
milage is not as good as the smaller
V8's and V6's but it is very powerful
and extremely stout.
My wife is totally convinced that the
built in lumbar support is the best
feature of both trucks. She and I are
able to make long drives without any
noticable fatigue and we are over 60.
