10mpg better than my 2017 6.2l, too. Never got better than 18mpg in my 2013 3.5l at interstate speeds. 2wd, aluminum and small cab definitely helps.

And I tell you, at a very light 4500 lbs and .373 axle, this thing is pretty dang fast!

First of all, it's a very nice truck.

Not trying to be rude and this statement is more in general than directed at this situation, but it's no wonder our kids don't understand the value of a dollar...

One thing I will not ever do is spoil them vehicle-wise. It's hard to ever go backwards in quality/features, and I truly believe getting them something $20k+ when they're 16-20 years old is setting them up for them spending $30k+ in 5 years when there is no way that's the smart financial decision. I've seen too many of my buddies who drove nice cars in college and have been strapped with a car payment their whole lives trying to buy something nicer than what they had. I just now bought my first "nice" truck at age 32. I had driven my old 2004 Silverado up until 2016, and I paid $13k used for it in 2008. Had old work truck model Silverados with the v6 before that. None of them cost more than $8k and none of them ever gave me a lick of trouble. Started driving with a work truck S-10 with roll-up windows and manual everything. Couldn't have been happier to have it.

For most kids I'd probably agree. But this one isn't most kids. And our situation is a little uncommon.

Cool man. Not trying to kill your buzz. Some kids deserve it. I just know of a bunch who don't.

It is a nice ride. And I've heard of people getting some awesome mpg with that 4cyl eco. He should be able to drive that for a long time.

only 4.8 better than what I have recorded over last 2 days with warmer weather. Either you drive with a heavy or foot or have some mods that are dropping it. I have BFG load Ds and 2" lift via Bilstein 6112s on the front.

I think those are out of my price range anyway but I just can't.....but I do wish you many years of reliable service.

And for the record, my kid shot down a Tundra I was interested in, too. It was a nice truck. Weirdo picked the cheapest and most economical vehicle I showed him. loco_2

The rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

What with the Hate? I've had a displeasure of owning two GM trucks and all I feel or announce is indifference. I wont buy one again myself but don't run someone else down for "Their" choice. Out

It's all good. We've all been trading jabs for a long time. It's all friendly.

No big deal it just a pet peave I have about constant negativity. It’s just getting old. I’m good hope your young man enjoys it and gets good service from it.

Why not, bought my son a jacked up F250. Deleted, straight pipe, lifted, train horns, full redneck. Fits right in at Magnolia HS.
