You know the difference between a Chevy and GMC? All the bolts are tight on a GMC

Nice looking truck, doesn't look like a '14?, 2014 models should handle a prostar but better verify the tow capacity for anything larger, we have a hole lot full of '14 chevy's, total redesign some are coming through with very high rear axle ratios, ie extreme highway gears 3.08 for maximum fuel economy. however the tahoe/suburban are not changed yet.

Maximum Fuel economy... LMFAO:purplaugh

You only pay what... about $3.5 per gallon of fuel... who cares!!! Down Under in Australia we are paying over $6.00 a gallon.

I am told in Europe many countries have a road tax that hits over $2000 per year for cars with engines over 4L. That monster would cost its own value every 5 years in Tax in Europe, and their fuel price is not much different to ours..

Mate enjoy it while you can....

I have a '12 Silverado 1500 w/ 5.3 and 6 speed tranny. Does fine with my Maristar 225 so your prostar should be nothing.

It's a 2013, end of year special. 11,000 lb towing capacity. I hear you about gas prices, I live in Canada and it just went up to around $1:30 a litre. That's a little more than $5 a US gallon. Not going to be a daily commuter, that's for sure.

That $10,000 sign on it is the discount, not the price by the way. Wish it were only 10k.
