Its A Great Truck — I love my truck. It has the power I need to pass or rolls along to save gas. It's goes from V-8 to V-4, so its great on gas. I love the on-star and in car phone. It has a great sound system, with Bose speakers. Leather light tan interior and brown on the outside. I has everything I could want. I have had a GMC the last 3 trucks I have owned and I wouldn't own anything else.

Pros: retains its value better than most

Cons: Does use more gas than your little compacts

Excellent All Around Driver — This truck is excellent, huge amount of power and torque, great for towing large boats. With the dual exhuast it sounds excellent, I put it into auto shift when driving short distances and it shifts great no jumps or hiccups between gears.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 465 horsepower
Tons of space

Cons: Large turning circle

Love This Truck — You pay a premium for the style and features of the Denali trim line, but it's worth it. I've loved this truck since the day I got it and am still very happy with it. That's saying a lot since I'm a gadget guy and love the new features you can get on newer models. I have added cameras (front, back and sides), sound proofing (though it was already quiet), and an aftermarket bluetooth phone connection. The GMC Nav isn't the greatest, but it's handy if you don't want to use your smart phone.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Beautiful, feature-rich, reliable, stylish.

Cons: Wish it had integrated bluetooth connectivity, but that wasn't available on this truck in 2008.

Better, more reliable engine. Ford Triton 5.4L V8 are known for a slew of problems. Manifold, spark plug connections, leaks ect. My brother is the head mechanic over the maintenance vehicles in the county - he has had tons of experience with both vehicles. Steer clear from F-150 Triton 5.4L V8 if you’re approaching over 85k miles. Look at the amount of previous owners and GET THE VEHICLE CHECKED OUT BEFORE YOU BUY!
