    Because sometimes it's about money and those 2013's could go real cheap with big changes on the way.
    My 2007 and 2008 are are still going strong. I can't believe how reliable the drive trains are on these trucks. So far, no warranty claims other than a power seat motor switch and a steering shaft lubrication in 290,000 miles.

    Just because someone enjoys simplicity doesn't make them a luddite, that's a pretty broad statement....Personally, all of the computer firepower doesn't bother me as it has proved very reliable in my experience.

    I like the interior in my 2011. Compared to my '95 it's nice. If this truck does as good as the '95 I'll be really happy.

    The Dodge had large knurled knobs that were easy to grip as I recall. I didn't get a chance to see what Ford's latest offerings had for dashboard controls.

    A lot of domestic and foreign brands have jumped on the tiny and smooth buttons and knobs fad. As people age, their fingerprints tend to fade and the traction isn't as good as it used to be. I can't remember which car brand or model we checked out; but one of them had knobs so smooth they may as well have been made of Teflon.

    Now the ironic thing we noticed was that a lot of the entry level cars aimed at 20-somethings had large deeply knurled knobs. Go figure.

    I currently work at Ft. Wayne Assembly where the full-size Chevy/GMC trucks are built. We ran several 2014 pilot trucks last week. I have set inside several trim levels of the new bodystyle truck. It's a great looking truck on the inside. The IP has a very clean layout and loved the 2 tone leather in the LTZ I sat in Thursday night. Great to see a fellow GM worker on here. Congrats on your retirement.

    Look for some HUGE incentives in the near future on the 13's. We're launching the new 14 bodystyle into full production this July.

    The last GM truck I bought was when I was working for a GM dealership. That was back in 1993. People say the older stuff lasted longer and in my case it did. I still use that same truck today and its still on its original paint. Plowed snow for 13 years as well.
    GM is going to have to come out with something really well built before I buy again. The new ones look ok, great power and comfort but their not holding up.

    Beautiful truck 4shorts! Increible condition.

    I am certainly very anxious to see how GM's new line of direct injected engines perform.

    I have a 2012 crew cab Sierra and I love it. I installed a KnN intake about 2000 miles ago and here is what I found

    Before the intake.
    Toronto on New Jersey at night no traffic winter aid temp. 17 to 17.5 mpg at 78 to 81 mph

    After
    Same trip same time of day same speed.
    19.5 to 20.0 mpg. I do this run every / weeks and have run about 4 trips with the KnN.

    I also am getting about .5 mpg around the city
