Agreed on that. You get a lot more bang for your 70K-73K (depending on your location)

I just donít understand what is going on with GM. Why they are letting themselves fall so far behind the other 2 when they used to be at the forefront of innovation. They never come out with Anything innovative. Itís sad tbh someone should be fired!

My company truck I drive is a 17 f350, i dont like the looks of the exterior and half the time it acts like it doesn't want to start but the cab space is amazing, I'm 6'1" and with the seat all the way back and the seat leaned back tot he back window I can't touch the steering wheel without stretching foreword some and as for leg room I can just about stretch my legs out straight sitting in the seat. I would still rather have a gm and like them better than the Ford but I definitely wish they had the ford space inside

I don't know why so many people get caught up on all the gadgets in these trucks. Hell a new base model has more than my slt, even a new ltz has way more than I'd use, but I'm no techno junkie...

Iíve got 3 friends with platinums 1 Ď17 and 2 Ď18ís. I disagree on the appearance. Donít like them. The options however are nice ideas. I just think the look could be done better.

The rear cab space in them and the mega cab dodge does beat out gm, but I donít ride in the backseat so itís not an issue for me. They make minivans for that anyways.

Iím not quite that tall but Iím pretty sure I was a cholo in my past life and I appreciate the seat all the way back
Iím very much more in love with a GM truck and the 19ís claim to have large cab space so we will see!

Personally think the new platinums are pretty dang sexy. Nothing will ever ride like a duramax tho. God forbid we talk about Cummins ride. Oh wait... just acquired one

This just popped up. I'm not sure if their tuning is something new or not.
