My son calls it a beast of a truck. I pull a 9,000lbs camper with it and have had no problems at all; you can't even tell it's there. The towing package with trailing mirrors and built in brake controls are the only way to go, it makes towing a joy and not a hassle. I haven't had the need to try out the 4WD but winter is close so I�m sure I will. The overall handling is also nice and the many extra's it came with just topped off a good work truck The only negative things would be; It won't pass up many gas stations, towing about 8 MPG. The ride is typical of a 3/4 ton, hard on the back. The brakes are real soft, if that makes sense.
The Duramax Diesel and Allison Transmission combo is awesome. The engine has the power to pull anything and the acceleration will surprise you. Very quiet people can't believe its a diesel. The layout of the interior is excellent, everything right where I can reach it. This was a very good buy for me.
Awesome vehicle ! this is my second Pickup from Carmax, the first one was a 06 Chevy Silverado 1500 but I needed a heavier duty truck to pull my travel trailer without worrying about overloading it's towing capacity so I purchased this vehicle after looking around and finding many similar vehicles overpriced with a ton of miles on them (over 100,000 miles) I kept looking on the carmax web site and found this beauty with low miles on it (47,000) and had it transported from North Carolina to Illinois ! I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase, the truck is exactly what I was looking for and in my price range. Thank you Carmax! I especially want to Thank Service Consultant Roz Jackson & Sales Consultant Winston Bolt whom made me a life time believer in Carmax with their professional service to me at the Glencoe Store.
