Normal Drive cycle: mostly city except for one LONG towing/Road trip
Location: Tampa FL soon to be Denver CO full time.
Never had a lack of power from the engine when towing although the computerized torque control is difficult to learn to use effectively. I don't know if the computer is learning me or i am learning it.
Towing MPG is better than full 2500's from the competition but not by much.
Seats are very comfy even on 12+ hour days.
DEF usage is hard to predict and the gauge is way to quick to drop from 100% or 90% to 20%. I'll stay on full for 2 weeks and within 3 hours i drop to 25 or 20%.
Value compared to the big three: Excellent IMO. I got a 2016 PR
4x4 for just under 45k + tax out the door in Florida.
When towing a 7k+ trailer from Tampa FL to Denver CO ranging from 65 to 80 MPH depending on speed limits and cops visibilty, my mileage ranged from 12mpg in FL and AL to 10mpg in TN and AR and then down to 8mpg in OK, KS and CO. Altitude, headwinds and hills make a pretty big difference. I saw the DTE change from 500 miles to empty starting the trip in FL down to a VERY low 181 Distance to empty after a fill up in KS. This thing NEEDS a bigger fuel tank.
I had no issues with cold starts in Denver down to 7 degrees sitting overnight in a hotel parking lot with NO block heater plugged in.
I did the IKE run from Dillion CO down and engine braking was a touch hard to engage... but when it did it was excellent. I averaged 33.6mpg coming down from the IKE tunnel to Bennet CO in the plains.
Heated steering wheel.. the leather part warms up but the wood part remains cold. Dealer told me its normal.
The front heated seats are subpar for heat delivery... they work ok but i was expecting better. The rear seat heater is the bomb though. Dealer also said this was normal.
DEF tank sensor triggered a CK engine light. Dealer reset it and said if it happened again to bring it back.
The in bed storage boxes are a pain to get closed and stay closed. I find them open while driving too often. Need to take it to dealer for adjustments if they can.
Every interior light should be LED... i swapped mine out and the difference is night and day. There is no excuse for mixing LED and those old style bulbs in this truck.
I had it hand waxed... i swear it was faster after that.
LED bulbs all around from Amazon fixing the half LED, half not mess.
