    I am sorry to say I have no pictures whatsoever of the truck. I should of taken them before the truck left my yard.

    A very popular vehicle TV show made here in Maryland was in my work the other day with the truck doing taping for the show and wanted a trailer to do some towing video with the truck. Also had the Honda Crosstour with them also. After they brought the trailer back to my work they asked if I wanted to take it for a test drive and I said YES to that. The truck was a crew cab short bed and all I can say is the truck has SOO much power. For those that don't know 397hp with 765ftlb torque. From a stand still to about 60mph, if you get on it you will be in the back of your seat. The truck was a treat to drive since they have not made it to show room floors yet. I have watched the videos from GM about the exhaust brake and I don't know if it was working when I turned it on. But I did notice that when I was on the brakes that it would start downshifting and slow down really fast. The work truck I have though (not the one I drove) once you get off the pedal it starts to slow but this one did not. Like I said don’t know if I had it turned on right. Has the 2 1/2 hitch on the back with a weight distribution hitch capacity of 17,000lbs. Don't think the 2500 can tow all that though. (Can't remember what the book says) I only got to drive the truck for about 15 minutes but that was long enough for me to want one when they come out. Like I said I wish I would of taken some pictures of it but once I got back from the drive he had to get back to his office. Just keep looking out for them at the show room and take a test drive if you can. All I can says is just hold on if your going to get that pedal down to the floor because you are going for a ride.

    Sorry again for having no pictures but thought I would tell you a litte about my Friday afternoon treat I got.
