    Not a typo
    GMC dealer had Some nice year end deals on 2014 Sierra 1500 and new ecotec 5.3 is supposed to be getting great mileage. Missed my Chevy so I gave it the ford the EcoBoot.
    I loved the ride and comfort of my F150 and the torque of the EcobooSt.

    Nice looking truck buddy. I understand your reasons on the F150 and Eco. To each his own, this is why we have options right.

    Did they give you a better trade number than the Ford dealer offered?

    Do I see "DENALI" on the door?

    Nice ride, but it doesn't match the boat. Guess you're getting a new one of those, too?

    Yeah. They beat the ford dealers offer. Haha
    No not Denali. It's an SLE
    Top deck of the supra is sandrock which is kinda off white so the white diamond color isn't far off from that.
    Slim chance of a new boat anytime soon. Hoping to start on cottage at lake this year.

    Funny thing When I went to ford dealer and they offered bupkis I said if that's what they thought of their own resale value id go back to GM. He said they would take as much off sticker as ford did.
    I got a better trade and $7500 off sticker on a 2014 vs the deal they offered on a 2013.
    Timing is always key. Noon on 12/31 is a good time to negotiate!!

    Ran the gmc on a long road trip a little over a week ago, 500 miles over 2 days. I averaged 19.4 mpg! Quite pleased.

    wow. was that trip all downhill & with a tailwind?

    I may be in the market for a new rig soon and, out of curiosity, clicked the display in the Silverado over to avg mpg and I'm at 15.6. Made me really wonder what advantage I would get from a ecoboost.
