This is my first GMC truck and so far I'm pretty happy with it. I have to say though I got what I expected from a 3/4 ton truck. Pulls the loaded dump trailer with ease. Fuel economy is rather dismal but it is a full size pick up with a 6.0L V8 so what can you expect. My power steering pump "whines" which the dealer tell's me that its just the way a 2500HD is. That is the one thing that bothers me the most about the truck.
Comfortable seats. Love having the seat belts in the seats.
More storage on the lower trim levels. More space between the rear seat and the front seats in an extended cab. Quieter interior. Improve fit and finish of interior and exterior. I expect the 900 series will have these things.
