    Update: Been at the new job for about a year now. Job is going well and we LOVE AZ!!! MN is getting hammered with snow and cold this entire month and all i can do is smile.

    Had the 2007 Sierra for 12 years now. 95K miles. latest (current) issue is broken engine mount (among a few other things). Thinking it's time to trade her in.

    What should I get? (and no, I am not spending $60k on a new loaded 2019 that looks like ass). I am thinking a 2018 Ram or GM...seems I can get a 2LT 4wd Chevy for about $35k. Should be able to get about $15K for my old beast.

    Do what a real man would do and get a Ridgeline.

    Thanks.

    With 395 HP/410 Tq and 3.92 gears, it should yank my boat around much better than my GMC does. And it should be pretty darn quick too. :thumbs:

    Well, this guy loves his "looks like ass" truck. :)
    Major upgrade from my 2002.

    Sorry, no offense. I am just not a fan of the new Chevy. The GMC is only marginally better.

    I have no doubt it's a major upgrade over your 2002. it better be. LOL

    After seeing a lot of new GM trucks on the road here I can safely say... YUK. The Chevy is just downright ugly. It might be a great truck but damn. The GMC is only slightly better looking.

    I don't mean to offend anybody who has one. I just wonder how many they will sell given ridiculous pricing and the ugly factor. Ram and Ford may well have a huge year.
