Almost have 8000 trouble free miles on it so far. Have used it to pull skid steer, building materials, and snowmobiles. The power this motor has is incredible, much better to drive then most V-8's pulls like a diesel. Interior is very comfortable. Mileage is 16-19 mixed driving. If you drive nice I'm sure it would easily get low 20's. Mine has 3:31 gears.
Had a 06' hemi and a 05 5.3 chevy before and this pickup puts both of those to complete shame in every department.
Twin Turbos and direct injection. LCD display for information is awesome. Leg room in the crew cab and room to fit three car seats across. Gear select helps with towing. Comfortable seats and probably the quietest vehicle I have ever driven. Really like how it drives, barely ever needs to kick down over hills or while pulling to maintain speed.
Wish the few storage spots were a little bigger, was use to storing my hitches and tie downs under the rear seat, they make aftermarket things for that tho. Really need to get the trailer light plug in mounted up in the bumper, would look much cleaner and won't get beat up. Other then those few things the pickup is outstanding.
