After 6 months of driving this vehicle, I find that it delivers on things like towing and hauling. I guarantee you will not find another truck that has better braking ability and power.
Brakes, brakes, brakes. I can't say enough about the braking ability on this truck. Low end torque makes towing my boat (Tahoe 215CC, aboout 3000 lbs) seem like it's not even back there, and this is in the 4.7L. Handling is very good as well.
