My wife just got a new to her 2016. Very underpowered in my opinion even for a V6. But the 33s and 6'' lift she's got on it may have a lot to do with it.

Don't have one, but sat in plenty last auto show. They are tiny inside, for as big as they are outside. Same with the Ranger. The GM's feel very cheap too, even the Denali's.

I compared it to the Tacomas and they're very similar in power and capabilities. Can't speak for their performance in the long run but i went with the Tacoma instead because of the reputation. I will say that Chevys have alot of cool bells and whistles that the Taco is lacking.

Buddy of mine uses one as a commercial vehicle to deliver large, but lightweight items. Puts 50k on it a year and loves its comfort for long distance travel

Heres the wife's truck. She loves it. It's very comfortable and decent on milage even with the lift. Only thing that gets me down is the lack of power. But I own a one ton so maybe it's just me.

Buddy of mine has the diesel. Uses it to pull his commercial pressure washing rig around. Last I heard he loves it. It's at least 2 years old.

What kind of fuel mileage is he getting, do you know?

Funny this topic came up, I'm just getting ready to start looking to buy a new one to use as my computer. I'm moving and will have a 75 mi drive each way. I need something that gets good mileage

I have an 04 model with an inline 5... 175 K miles and running strong for me. I bought it at 97K and have only had to do oil changes as prescribed... Plan on keeping it until the wheels fall off... I was pleseantly surprised with the toom of the extended cab version. I love it as a commuter and to run around town.

My brother has a diesel and loves it. It was throwing a code of some sort. He got sick of that and just deleted it, put new exhaust and a tune on it. He's really loving it now.
