Great all-purpose Truck
We bought our GMC 2500 HD gas 6.0L extended cab last spring to pull our 9k lb 5th wheel. We pulled it for about 6k miles with abslutely no issues. It pulls great, a bit slow off the line, but it will get going if I put my foot down -no issues on the highway. It'll do 70 all day long pulling our portable house. We get about 8 MPG towing and 17 empty in rural areas. No doubt the diesel would haul better and get better MPG, but for an extra 30-40 cents/gal, that doesn't make sense for us. This truck has much better fit and finish than older GM vehicles we've owned. In fact this our 1st GM since our 2000 GMC Safari (that was a money pit). We love the look of the extended cab with 180° rear doors. The rear seat is the same size as the newer 4 door. To us the truck looks classy. It has style and rugged looks without being over the top. The next 2 generations are just stupid big. Seems like the bigger the grille the more compensation. Basically, I highly recommend this generation 2500. It does everything we need it to do and looks good doing it.
Only owned for a week, but thrilled so far!
This truck had almost everything I was looking for. It was actually a year OLDER than my current truck, but had 50,000 LESS MILES on it! It came with a gooseneck hitch (which I really needed and did not want to have to install), remote start, 4 wheel drive, and many other "niceties". Only had it for a week, but so far so good!
Best truck I have ever owned!
Powerful and great road manners. Towing a breeze. Head turner. Fit the whole family comfortably and great for road trips. Surefooted in the snow and diesel mileage was better than expected. Averaged 19 around town and better on the highway.
