Professional Work Truck

2007 GMC Sierra 2500HD Work Truck 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 6A)
In "07 I needed a truck to tow a 7000lb 14x9x9 box trailer in western PA. I test drove 'em all and fell in love with a Ford until I learned GM had the most torque, hp & mpg. Found a GMC L82 with all towing packages. I tow 5 days a week and avg 9.5mpg city and 15 on the hwy at 62mph or 2k rpm, above 65 mph the aero drag zaps the mileage to 10.5. The PA hills takes another mpg. Without my trailer I get 15 city and 21.5 hwy. I love the performance and the bucket style seats, it feels like a Camaro on steroids. Get compliments every where I go and with 30K miles I've been everywhere.
Love the OnStar e-mail updates & MP3 connect. Only thing I've had to change is the oil & filter; have K&N air filter. Tranny fluid is still full & pink. Plenty of torque; have to be careful when road is wet.
Stabiltrac which GM added in'08, so I'll have it next time. Can always use a little more horsepower and fuel mileage.
