I saw my first 2011 diesel today at a store. Talked to the retired couple who just picked it up to pull a 5th wheel.
X-cab Lariat 350 4x4.
Holy fokken sh!t, what a beautiful truck. One solid color, not a 2 tone. Deep wine red.
They paid $48K for it.
They remote started it for me, and I am just without words! I CAN NOT believe how quiet this new engine is. Now, I love me some diesel clatter like all you guys. But I have to tell ya, it was some nice to hear it purr like a gasser. I could get used to it.
They reported the average MPG in the first 800 miles was 21 MPG. They were BEAMING with pleasure. And the nice retired lady did the driving, and she said she loves the whole truck.
You guys are going to love these trucks. Congrats.
