denali is not really what you want for two reasons, pretty sure they have the 6.0 which gets about 11mpg. and they have awd not 4wd which is weeny for anything other than on road snow, and hurts mileage

It has nothing to do with safety in this case. It has to do with how much the vehicle would cost to repair. Trucks have a VERY high value, so if they get messed up shops can charge more to fix them. Because of that, the insurance company is gonna charge more to you.

What JW said. That 6.0 is a giant gas guzzler, and when you couple it with AWD it makes it 10x worse.

Yeah, you don't want the quad steering. I didn't look real hard at it, but if it'* got that, then stay away. That systems causes more trouble than it'* worth.

i saw that first truck already it is very nice but i dont have the time or money to travel out of state, if you want to help go on auto trader and use the zipcode "49455" and go like 100 mile radius. Im looking for red black white or blue under 100,000 miles $13,000 and under


drove around today hitting car lots and saw some awesome things but alot were way out of my price range >:(

I didn't realize where it was, my bad. lol

Are you looking at the 1500s exclusively, or is the Colorado/Canyon an option too?
