Powerful Workhorse, But Very Comforable — Great truck, power when you need it, comfortable all the time. I wish the dash didn't look like such cheap plastic imitation wood but that is what it is. I really wish that GM had continued with the sun visors that extend out so you can block the sun when it is past the visor. The window auto up feature would be a nice upgrade, as well as being to auto up/down the back windows on the crew cab. The back seat floor board rises up a solid inch or more not allowing you to put a standard tool box under the seat. No rear air vents for back passengers except for that under the driver/passenger seat.

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

Pros: power, speed control with exhaust brake or Allison transmission, great handling despite the 1 ton status, comfortable seats front and back, good view with minimal blind spots with addition of back up camera

Cons: need running boards to get in, the sun visors don't extend out to block full window area like older models of truck did, windows don't have auto up feature, stereo looks like it's out of the 90's.

It's An Awesome Truck. — Easy to drive, tows very well, accelerates very well, exhaust brake saves brakes, very safe and in control driving, repair, maintenance & fuel costs reasonable, quiet with no blind spots, is a good looking truck and is comfortable to drive, the six speed Allison Transmission provides easy towing.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable, tows very well w/6 speed Allison Transmission, load capacity very good, exhaust brake, heated seats

Cons: large turning radius

Crapy Truck As A Whole. Don't Buy It. — This is the WORST truck I've ever owned. GM totally made a complete failure. The Duramax will have issues within 40,000 miles. But hey at least it's not one of those fall-apart-immediately GM-built 6.2l's. Isuzu engineered this engine. Do not buy this truck.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Isuz-built engine is built with some quality.

Cons: It's a GM platform, and you can expect it to be a failure.
