October 11, 2009I have a 06 2500Hd and just cant afford the gas in it anymore. My work car isnt realible anymore. I need a truck, just one that gets better than 14 mpg on the highway! So what do you guys think of your new trucks? Pro's and con's? Also what kind of mpg's are you getting on the highway??

October 11, 2009I really like my truck. It's a 07 1500,NNBS,4.8,3.42 gears, extended cab. I just did a trip today and got 19.5 mpg doing 75-80 mph. My city mileage seems like it could be better but isn't that bad, I average 12-14mpg. My only mods are my GM performance parts exhaust and air intake. I also have a tonneau cover to try and help with the drag on highway trips.
October 12, 2009I absolutely love my new truck. I don't have the 6-speed, but do have the 6.0 and 4.10 gears. The new motor gets 14-15mpg mixed and 17-19mpg highway.
I'd say thats pretty good. The 5.3 6-speed is an awesome combo. You won't regret it. And if you find one with the NHT towing package, that gets you 3.73 gears.
