OUCH, giving up a perfectly GOOD FORD for a Chebby, Man that is like giving up your best huntin dog & gettin a Poodle!!!
I have an 08 that is a 3rd vehicle, I use it for hauling a 3700# truck camper & my fishing boat. I didn't do much research on this subject (MPG's) but was thinking that if I got a newer diesel things would be cool, but Alas, I made the mistake of jumping into an 08. I had no visions of having to chip it or do any Mods to it at all, I just wanted a good stock truck (not a swamp rocket or trailer Queen). Don't get me wrong I like the looks, the ihterior & it's got TONS of power but the MPG's sucks big time (11.6 most times) but unless I want to spend $$$$ for a DPF & EGR delete, tuner & a slew of other Mods for improvement (crappy emmisions is the culprit), the mileage is not going to get any better.
I might as well have named it "BOAT" (break out another thousand)!!!!! In fact that's what I'm gonna do, Honey lets take the Boat!!!
Good luck with your search.
