Pros: comfort of front seat
Cons: no storage compartments for over head, sunglasses, cell phone, etc.
Advice: dont buy black! Very difficult to keep clean.The test drive was ok, we were rushed by the manager but treated wonderfully by the sales person. The handling and the room is what we needed. The brakes were a bit too touchy. Step rails supplied were not the correct rails. They were for a regular cab, not extended cab.
Pros: Appearance and fit
Cons: gas mileage
Advice: Very nice truck and enjoyableThe 2500 SLE rides smooth and handles great with the exception of the turning radius which is non-existent. Power from the 6.0L is more than adequate and the truck quality is much better than the General Motors of recent years. They are getting alot better.
Cons: suspension option
Advice: be sure you need or desire a stiff rideA very responsive handling truck with plenty of power from the 4.8 V8. Ride is a bit stiff with the suspension option, but that same option gives the truck very sure-footed handling
Pros: Exceptionally smooth engine, ride and transmission
Cons: Gas mileage
Advice: Get one if you can afford it, you will love it.This truck has a better ride than nearly every passenger car I have ever driven. Very smooth over bumps and in corners. The acceleration is outstanding. This truck came with so many great options standard I didnt have to add anything but the tow package.This is the best vehicle I have ever owned.
