    I work at Sheehy Auto Stores. I currently run the Chevrolet and Isuzu franchises and next door is the Dodge dealership. Chevrolet has really come along ways with their diesel. It's really impressive when mated with the Allison transmission. The 8100 V8 is equally impressive, but the gas mileage stinks!! We stock both. Anyone interested in a new domestic truck let me know.

    I have a Duramax deisel 2500 HD with the 5 sp. auto. I absoutely love it. I am from Wisconsin and plow alot of snow with an assortment of trucks. We just got back from florida after towing our '36 apache there to leave it for the winter. It pulled realitively effortless. The grade braking on the allison 5 sp. transmission is awesome. We managed to get between 9-10 miles per gallon towing. I like all deisel trucks in general but would favor the Chevy if I had to make a choice. Feel free to call me.

    I have a gmc 2500 extra cab sb with the 7.4. I get about 6-8 mpg towing 10,000lbs. of boat. On average I get about 220 miles per tank. I spoke with an owner of the same truck but with the duramax and said he got almost 600 miles per tank on the hwy. Were can I get one at a competitive price in NY new or used? Herd it has plenty of power and it doesn't shake the fillings out of your mouth like the power stroke.

    I bought a new 4-door Duramax it's sweet, towed my 36 apache home from vegas thru the rocks and she would still go 50 thru the mountians. It also got over 12 mpg in the flat lands. My 2000 6.0 only get's 12 mpg not towing any thing.

    On a side note

    Sorry Ford fans, but I was in the market for either an Excursion, Saburban, or an Yukon XL. I rode in all three, the number one choice was the Yukon, next the Saburban, and I hated the Excursion.

    First of all that thing rode like the sweet pickle bus. The ride quality was horrible. It was not smooth at all and felt like a pick up truck. Second was the turning radius. To make a K-Turn you had to do it in 3 or 4 turns. It wouldn't turn worth a damn, and there were a lot of blind spots.

    I choose the Saburban 2500 (too bad they don't put the Duramax in it or I would have gotten that). This truck is a pleasure to drive, it drives it self, and the ride quality is excellent for a solid rear axle and leaf springs.

    You had to "Drive" the Excursion, and I would have hated driving that thing on long trips. "Just my opinion".

    I bought the Avalanche 2500 with the 8.1L (gas) and the 4spd Automatic M32 Tranny. It used to run like a S.O.B. Now, with K&N, Hypertech PPIII, and true duals with Flowmasters, it runs like a raped ape.
