I have driven several on dealer trades. Very quiet. Great low end torque. 27 mpg at 75 mph. Smooth running. Transmission does not search for gears constantly. So far all that I have driven are 4wd and loaded with options. Seems like GM has done their homework on this package.

A friend of mine and his dad each bought one. They are happy so far, but haven't really owned them long enough to know much about them.

What is the tow rating on them?

Max tow is 7800 pounds but it might be a little lower depending on how its equiped.

There is a comparison on You Tube between this inline vs the Ram V6 Ecodiesel and the Chevy gets a little better mpg both loaded and unloaded.

I have one for a month now. I love it. Got 29- 30mpg from DFW to Rayburn. Only got 27 -28 on way back. Drives smooth, gets up and goes when you need it. When towing my boat I get about 18-21 mpg.
