TFL Truck did the Ike Gauntlet with one, They seemed to be impressed. On their mileage test it got 34 real world mpg empty.

I just got one 4x4 crew cab. I love it. It has great power and the fuel milage is unbelievable. I came from a 2015 duramax .6.6. I haven’t towed my 5500 lbs camper yet but from what I can tell by driving it I think it will tow very good

I drove them at the GM reveal in Redmond Oregon in August. I was so impressed that I ordered one that should be here this week! Excited like a kid at Christmas!

I test drove one last Friday. Really impressed with the acceleration. I had the truck for about 5 hours, driving my normal commute route which i average 16 mpg in my 2014 5.3 netted 24.9 in the diesel. The truck I drove was an LTZ with Tech package, I really enjoyed the adaptive cruise, worked really well once I got used to it. The only reason I didn't move forward with the purchase was because the truck was white.

Just picked mine up Saturday, 4x4 crew cab. Awesome truck. Power is good, only had the car hauler with side by side behind it so far, Pulled well. Seems to be running good mpg’s. Going on a long trip this weekend will check in with a average mpg.

In the video, it tells you the belt-driven oil pump is a wet belt system rated for a minimum of 150,000 miles before service and is easily accessed and repaired by sliding the trans slightly back.
The chains are a no service item..

Would rather have 150k mile timing belt to change from the front of the engine.
