Steering – big improvement, and the
manual transmission shifts nicely and
has a decent set of ratios. The clutch
is nice, too.
The 4.7L engine is a good mate for this
tranny, but it has a lower than
expected toque feel at the lower rpms.
No biggie, I just need to relearn the
shifting and acceleration methods.
Towers using this engine should try the
higher ratio diff.
The ride height is excellent.
The shorter bed is an excellent
comprimise with the rear cab space.
The storage spaces are great - although
the brochure is somewhat misleading -
talk to your dealer.
Driven 500 miles so far. Mileage: City
~15, hwy ~18 - better than EPA!
It does not "feel" as large as it is.
AVAILABLE Manual tranny - ON THE LOT!
Seats are great. Center armrest.
Overhead console with mileage info.
Rear seat room is IDEAL. Bed length
still decent. Nice suspension for a
truck! Tires. Mileage better than
More bottom end torque on 4.7L engine.
Shorter turning diameter wall-to-wall.
Parking is the only real pain.
