First off, I’m a big guy and typically drive a big truck with a service body. I was more comfortable in the Chevy than I am in my truck, it drives and handles well; it’s got a great ride and plenty of pep; and I really liked the visibility—especially those side mirrors and the placement of the integrated close-up mirrors.
