    Great — Excellent ride, great handling and an overall great truck. This truck does it all. It can dress up for special occasions and can haul a boat or building materials and is a work horse. I love mine and think you'll love it too.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great ride

    Cons: Miles per gallon - but overall it's good for a truck this size

    My Husband's Pride And Joy! — My husband bought this vehicle new and loves everything about it! It's comfy inside for five adults and has nearly every upgrade imaginable. The covered bed in the back allows it to be used as a pickup truck, as well. If you are looking for a vehicle that can do it all, this one is it!

    Pros: Great anything car with 4-wheel drive and off road ability.

    Cons: This is a very large vehicle so it can be hard to park and then pull out of parking spaces in crowded lots.

    A Definite Family Work Truck . — Overall the good points are too many to mention, and the bad points are far and few between. It handles well in snow,mud and sand, the rear cover is excellent for keeping items you put in there out of the elements. It all boils down to buying one to see what your are missing. And if I didn't mention it, the truck is a real head turner.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handles well rain, snow or shine, lots of room inside

    Cons: My wife found it was a liitle hard parking in the city with it, and if you don;t use your outside mirrors to back up, you'll find looking out the back window a little hard.

    Aesthetically Pleasing — it's a truck, guzzles gas, kinda like an suv, with less inside room, and like a pickup with less outside room. getit?

    Pros: looks cool, status symbol not quite useless

    Cons: gas mileage chevy sucks...

    A Great Handling Car With Good Towing Capacity And Load Carrying Cpabilities. — This is a beautiful vehicle and very comfortable on the road. It is versatile for hauling and trailering. It handles really well with it's premium handling package under most conditions. The Vortec engine is quick and powerful. The interior is in nearly like new condition.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: This is a very comfortable care which is in great condition.  It is a good towing vehicle with a rating of 6,000 lbs.  It handles better than many cars, and with the back seat area open can haul a 4x8 sheet of plywood flat without hanging out the back.

    Cons: You pay for the towing capacity in gas mileage which ran 15 mpg for us in our foothills location.  It also doesn't handle snow much better than any other rear wheel drive vehicle.
