Fantastic — Quiet soft ride on rough back country roads, with decent handling and fantastic towing capability.. Also very quiet on the rough freeway lanes.. Bose stereo very good,heated seats very good for long trips. Engine quiet for diesel and power output is fantastic

Pros

Awesome Truck.  Very reliable - 4 years and 75,000 miles without any incidents!!!  Love it, but as a salesman, I need gas mileage.

Cons

Parking is a bit of a pain in the behind

Great Truck, Definitely Would Buy Again If I Needed A Truck. — Truck is very long, so parking is a hassle. Excellent reliability, endurance, interior noise, and power. Never had a break down in 75,000 miles of ownership. I travel to Rochester, NY from Raleigh, NC which is an 11 hour drive. I stop only for lunch, and this truck makes the drive extremely comfortable.

Pros

Looks, comfort, power and the way it pulls a heavy trailer

Cons

The fuel mileage

245

So You Gotta Move 5 People, Some Carge And A Heavy Trailer.....have I Got The Truck For You!!! — Fantastic truck, except the fuel mileage. The seats are great, backseat is good, power is great and parts are cheap to buy and easy to replace. I would reccomend this truck to anyone who needs an actual truck to haul heavy things and haul 5 people in comfort.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros

4wd

Cons

gas mileage

Buy A Programmer, Exhaust, And Intake And If It Be Alot Better. — 4wd great but didn't pull trailer as I well as I thought a 6.0 should. Bouild quality great no problems squeaks or rattles. Appearance looked good with just the front lifted to level truck and 285/75/16 BFG All Terrrain's were great at the dunes pulling toy hauler for quads. Just don't expect the 6.0 gas to pull the mountains real good.

Pros

Big diesel, crew cab, 4x4, good amount of cab options, HUGE towing capacity.

Cons

Over $1000/month payments, 'nuff said.

Great For Hauling... Everything! — 6.6L Duramax LBZ - 360hp/650lb-ft. Allison 6spd auto. 6 pack CD. Full trailering package - 12,000lb capacity. Comfortable, quiet cab. The big D-max engine walks all over supercharged Harley Davidson F150's (trust me).

There Are Better Trucks On The Market For The Money — Overpriced with few base options, poor fit and finish and the engine makes a rattling that no one can seem to fix since day 1.
