One thing Chebby got right was ditching torsion-bars for coil-sprung IFS. What a POS that was!

Mileage comparison with a Tracker Targa v18 Combo 4000lbs approximately

Tundra @ 60mph = 11mpg(no wind) 9-10(with small wind) 7-9(heavy headwinds)
Tundra @ 55mph = 12mpg(no wind) 10-11(small wind) 9-10(heavy headwinds)

Keep in mind, the Tundra will pull close to 10,000lbs and the mileage only drops to around 8-9mpg pulling 9500lbs with no winds....with headwinds she's down into 7-8 mpg range. The lower gears will not pull as well with heavier loads, thus get the rear end that will do what you need it to do.

Titan @ 60 mph = 14.8mpg(no wind) 13-14(with small wind) 11-12(heavy head winds)

Haven't tested the Titan anymore, but you can see the relation of the gearing. Although each truck power band is different, the gearing is a major player in mileage. Titan will only pull 7100lbs in current configuration... the max tow Titan has a 3.33 rear end and tops out at 9500lbs towing.

Back to the OP, the new GM direct injected engines are very efficient but only with the proper rear end and weight configuration. Your still firing 8 cylinders vs 6 cylinders on the EB and in the end 8 cylinders will use more fuel. I honestly can't wait to get my EB and see how it compares with a 3.73 rear end on the same boat setup.
@prime81 I clicked on your link to see what you have ordered, oh my sound like it is awesome. Post pictures when you get it. I sure would like to see. For that matter of fact, you can send one to me or tag me on it so I can see for my self. OooooWeeee you getting a sweet truck.

What would you expect them to say to the media? "Here at Chevrolet we are determined to NOT be the best quality truck"?
@cegan1825 Yeah no doubt. I know right? Duh, every company has a marketing department and it is their job to sell the company and its products.

I don't get why everyone always immediately bashes other manufactures. Ford, and in particular the f150 isn't perfect either.

I hope you don't call yourself a ford owner. And its very weird that this post had all those "Thanks"
