This is my 2nd GM diesel truck and it
has operated flawlessly since delivery.
The power and accelleration for a big
truck makes it fun to drive. I tow a
14000 lb 5th wheel and can pass with
ease going over the mountains. The
mileage is about 10mpg with the trailer
and running 65, without it runs about
18-19 mpg on the highway.
The leather heated seats. The allison
transmission with the grade braking
feature and the excellent brakes.
Walking away from my Powerstroke Ford
Friend with the identical trailer.
Lastly it is so quiet for being a
diesel you hardly know it is one.
The rear end sits high for trailering
and needs to be lowered. Would have
liked power ajustible trailer mirrors.
This vehicle has surpassed all our
expectations (except for the dealer who
is mediocre). The cabin noise level is
lower than most of the cars that I have
owned in the last 15 years. Build
quality is improved over the 95 GMC
that I owned. I tow 10 to 13K pound
loads on a daily basis. Hauling horses
I routinely discuss trucks with other
guys at horse events. I find that I
can out haul them, get slightly better
gas mileage and the TRUCK IS IN THE
SHOP less than my Ford F350 friends
(one of whom has sold his to buy a
Chevy 3500). If you are looking for a
real work rig, this is it.
We upgraded to a heaveier tow vechile.
We have a horse ranch and haul 12,000
to 15,000# trailers. If you want a
SERIOUS tow vehicle, this is it.
Neither Ford nor Dodge can touch it.
It is also eztremely quite, but due to
the towing capacity a little hard
riding. Build quality is great,
especially considering this is a TRUCK
The brakes are the most outstanding
feature of the truck. 4-wheel
ventilated disks with a 4 channel ABS
that ties into the Tow/Haul mode to
give you safe sure stopping regardless
of the situation
