This is my dream truck. 12 MPG City/16
Highway - no better even with Mobil 1.
The 6.0L is fine for commuting, racing
punks in Civics and hauling stuff from
Lowe's. It does work hard to tow a
6,000 lb. camper. The 6.0L is a revver
not a torquer. If you do more than
occasional towing, the Duramax is the
choice for you. The 8.1L gets 9 MPG so
think carefully before making that
It hauls 2 tons, that's right, 2 tons
of gravel without squatting or skipping
a beat. The OEM Bridgestone tires wore
out at 45K and because it has to work
to tow a moderate trailer, I gave it a
9. It is a monster to park, especially
in a parking garage so Fun to Drive is
The A/C kicks butt. Everything on the
truck is solid. Quality paint finish -
still looks new. I added a Linex spray-
on bedliner - worth every penny.
Change the design of the cabin air
filter and lug nut covers. Improve the
dealers' customer service focus.
