Just traded in an 03 Avalanche 1500 for
the 5.9 SLT 'Bighorn'. Compared the
Silverado Duramax, and the Dodge is a
steal! The Chevy rides softer, but the
Dodge with the 'New 5.9 and tranny' out
perform the Chevy (and thousands
cheaper). I will tow a 10,000lb tow
hauler in the spring, and will followup
with a report on towing.
Turbo diesel 5.9, Torque +600lbs, gas
mileage. Looks great, and big brakes
and 4" exhaust to boost the horsepower
Needs just a few more bells and
whistles without going up to the
Larimie package (i.e. homelink garage
door openers) In fact, there is 'no'
place to put a garage door opener. Put
a bedliner in as standard equipment
