New truck.

I'm in the market for a new truck, and love the style of the new trucks. I have almost no use for a diesel, as I don't tow anything. Maybe a car trailer or something like a boat in the future. But It would be a daily driver from home to work, 5km one way lol. I have never bought new, and these trucks on the lot are upwards of 70k. Any advice/tips from buying from a dealer? And what have others got their trucks for. Im up in Canada, BC. I'd like a loaded lariat, coming form a '90 single cab Chev with no options it should be a nice step up

Not sure a Diesel is a good option if you are looking at a lot of short trips and no towing.

I don't do all too much towing either but I love my diesel. Where in B.C. are you located, and are you 100% set on a 2011?

Im in the cariboo. Would like a 2011 just because of all the nightmares I have read with the earlier years.

Why is this? I just love the way they look. I've been driving around the last 2 winters with no heater in my truck. So I insist on getting a loaded truck lol

If you don't do anything with the truck but drive to the store any engine will do fine... Even a '10 will be significantly less $$$, enough saving to prevent any problems...

Aren't the '11s getting better mpg?

I dunno, I'm pretty set on the 2011s. Maybe I should wait for the 2012s to come out, the 11s would drop a bit in price right?

I would expect them to cause they are no longer the "new" truck.

And yes, I hear the '11s can get 20+ MPG. While the '10s get like 14...

You could get a loaded 2011 with the 6.2L gasser. Cheaper and easier maintenance (if you don't need the diesel power). I know Lariat's around here are up to $10k off right now if you buy off the dealer lot and shop around.

Don't the Gassers get worse mpg lol.

I have no problem doing regular maintenance. How are short trips and no towing bad for a diesel.
