  • Bed cameras and trailer camera improvements – great for hitching!
  • 10 speed transmission now available
  • More inventory available in the GTA this year

Pros & Cons

  • High resale value and residual value which means a great lease payment
  • The V8 engine is hugely fuel economic, and can shut down to 2 cylinders depending on the driving requirements. This means you always have the right amount of power and save on fuel
  • Great looking entry level elevation trims
  • Plenty of standard tie downs and great towing cameras and infotainment features to make hitching much easier.
  • Way too many trims! GM Canada offers far too many customization options on their trucks, with different trims, packages, and options. This means the inventory that is sent out in their regional marketing is usually tough to find in stock. It’s also difficult to compare these trucks against other dealer trims or brands if you’re trying to figure out which may be a better deal for you.
  • More expensive than other full size trucks for less standard features
  • Interior isn’t as impressive as Dodge’s new Ram 1500 design
