    Just thought I would post this for those who were curious on the new trucks:

    The truck I test drove was equipped with a 6 speed manual tranny and the new 6.7L cummins diesel engine.


    Seemed to have a good gear ratio

    Plenty of power in the upper gears!! (After shifting into 4th or 5th, you could floor it and launch!!)

    Realitivley quite (Not something I prefer but...)

    The turning radious seemed top be real tight, Tighter than I was expecting

    Huge 52 gallon fuel tank

    Didnt have the tipickle diesel smell like the older units did (again not something I would prefer...)

    According to the dealer, very few of these trucks come standard with a factory PTO set-up.

    Low ground clearance (Lower than I was expecting anyway)

    All the new emmission crap

    The truck I looked at was set-up as a work truck, nothing fancy. Sticker price was $32,876. If anyone has any more specific questions that I might be able to answer, post them or send me a PM.
