My 2002 Avalanche Z66 is used to pull a 6800 lb race trailer, a 24 foot boat and a travel trailer. It's almost always towing. It's racked up 178000 miles with just 2 sets of brakes and one alternator along with routine maintenance. How many of the trucks shown will last 9 years and still drive as good as ever. Planning on going for 300000+ miles. Best vehicle I've ever owned and yes I've owned other brands. Would buy another in a heart beat if this one ever wears out.
The Avalanche feels like a car more than a truck, transports a family of 5 very comfortably, and can move a 10 by 12 shed on pvc pipes, with relative ease.
To the writer and editor of this article unfortunately dodge no longer makes trucks. The two Chrysler Group vehicles in your list are the Ram Dakota and the Ram 1500 not the Dodge Ram Dakota and the Dodge Ram 1500. To the person who says that Dodge = cheep you have obviously not looked at a 2009-2010 Dodge Ram 1500 or 2011 Ram 1500 know the facts before making such a naive statement. The Ram 1500’s interior has been called best in class by many automotive enthusiast publishers.
