A brand new Chev Denali 3/4 ton diesel 4x4 loaded, is $92,000 Canadian + 13% Tax = 73,600 + 13% = 83,000 US$.
- not in my world, of wants
So Beau Truck Update:
a) currently own a 1998 Silverado 2500HD 4x4 5.7L-v8 / will restore body with Southern metal & sell
b) my next truck will probably be a 2002 Chev Z71 1500HD 4x4 6.0L-v8
- found one, next town over / solid with little rust, but needs a little work...Z71 with 190K miles
c) maybe my last truck, will be a v8 Toyota / a used purchased
From a used cost & repair expense standpoint - IMO the Z71's from 2000 to ~2005 are the most reliable, well built, not overly complicated & easily taken into high mileage.
My daily driver (DD'r) is a mint 2000 4Runner, SR5, 4x4 3.4l-v6 with full truck frame.
- currently has 137,000 Km = 85,000 miles
- one of my favorite vehicles, I've ever owned
Wife has a Toyota RAV4 Limited 4x4 3.5L-v6-269HP with 160,000 Km = 99,000 miles / fun to drive and awesome in winter
^^ Both our Toyota's are flawless, never break down, don't use any oil...a brand, that makes driving and ownership enjoyable.
