“I've own Toyota, Ford and Honda trucks and this by far is best truck I have owned. It is quiet, smooth and has plenty of power.
People are always stopping me and complimenting its looks. Gary Russ Chevrolet - Cadillac gave me an outstanding deal. ” Robert McClinton - 4/24/2015 5:52 PM
“This truck replaced a Nissan Frontier. I don't need a full size truck, so sadly my alma matter, Ford, was out as they killed off the Ranger 3 years ago. I have had the truck a week and like it. We drove a 700 mile trip through the mountains and averaged 23.5 mpg going 70 mph with 4 people and bed full. The Nissan on the same trip averaged 19.3 mpg. Truck is very quiet and comfortable. The fit and finish inside and out are first rate. I have not used the 4X4 or towed yet, but with 7000 lbs capacity it should do well. Overall, after a week and 1000 miles, I would recommend it. I was going to wait on the diesel, but after comparing potential costs vs. return, the gas V-6 was the better buy. ” fozcat - 12/31/2014 7:24 AM
