First of all, I love the truck.
It has the Tremor Plus Package with all the bells and whistles that my 2011 was missing.
I'm even getting used to all the black graphics which I didn't really care for at first.
It tows like a dream. Plenty of torque on tap for my 10,000 pound trailer-hills or no hills and much more stable than my old truck.
The built in trailer brake controller is far superior to the after market one I installed in my 2011.
Horse power wise it makes the same as my 2011 Coyote P/U but doesn't feel as fast. This could just be me.
The only thing I can really complain about is the mileage. I'm just not getting as good as my Coyote got. If I drive super easy its not too bad, but still not as good as my Coyote.
It has 4:10 gears and 20" wheels so if I stick to 65 mph its not too bad but at 85 it is in the toilet. My Coyote was much more forgiving regarding my right foot.
In town mileage is usually around 10-12. Again, way less than the Coyote.

So over all, I love the truck.
The jury is still out on Power and mileage....maybe these will improve when she's all broken in.
