ReviewI wanted a truck that wasn't too big, but had enough grunt to work. Love the space the crew cab gives, wish the bed was about 1' longer. 4.7 V-8 is a great engine in search of a decent transmission. Very slow to down shift, yet won't up-shift in parking lots. 4X4 knob is in a poor location. Ride is a bit too stiff--the 07 was too soft. Handling is terrific for a truck, but I would trade a bit of handling for a less stiff ride. So far 14 mpg city 21 mpg highway, pretty decent for a 300+ HP V-8 4X4. Overall head and shoulders above the Ranger and Colorado, better looking than Toyota and Nissan. Best mid-sized truck out there
Best FeaturesComfortable seats, V-8 has plenty of power and is smooth and quiet. Perfect size, roomy interior, neat storage bins under rear seat.
Worst FeaturesLoosen the suspension just a bit, a 6-speed automatic that responds quicker, put some sound insulation in the roof--way too much wind noise. .
