Oh and look - leather. That was something that bothered me about the Z71. Range-topping trim level, yet wasn't allowed to have leather.

So stoked.

If I'm buying that (which I might), I'll be finding places (whether I'm supposed to be there or not) to off-road, haha. I know when I had a Trailhawk Cherokee overnight from work, I was trying my hardest to find things to drive over. It mostly consisted of just curbs, rather than using the driveway approach, hahaha.

And if you think that - remember the SVT Raptor costs even more.

So it wouldn't bother you guys at all taking a brand new $45k truck off road?
Nope. If I'm buying it for those features, I'm sure going to make use of them.

Really no different than buying a 2017 Camaro SS 1LE and taking it to the track.

It would only bother me if I only had liability insurance on it.


I notice they don't mention anything about the engine. I'll be kind of disappointed if they do nothing to the engine choices. I'd really like to see a supercharged or twin turbo 3.6L V6 or better yet, jam the 6.2L V8 from a corvette in there, then I'd really be interested. They should be aiming to take down the Raptor with this thing.
Raptor isn't in the competitive set, since it's a half-ton. I wouldn't expect them to do anything to compete with it, especially since that is larger and costs $20k more.

The standard engine choices should be more than sufficient - especially since they garner such high marks already.
