Good solid pickup. It does what I ask of it.

Its a solid pickup. One issue is the mirrors are a little difficult to get adjusted properly. The mileage could be better but it's a v8. Decent ride quality not too rough. Overall a pretty comfortable and well performing vehicle. I would have preferred leather seats. The lack of rear window defrost is less than ideal as well.

Always miss dependable! It is very responsive.

This truck gets really good gas mileage. Has great power for a 6-cylinder truck. Only thing I would change is to get an extended cab. Feels a little claustrophobic. . Even though there is plenty of legroom. , seats are comfortable. Also has a nice sound system and CD player. Very responsive and easy to handle.

- Victoria V

Reliable, comfortable, great towing capacity.

Performance has been really good. Only major problem we have had is the trailer towing module went out. We pull our camper all over with it and have had no problems with towing. Has been extremely reliable. Seats are comfortable and all the trim work. I wouldn't own any other truck other than a GMC.
