Ehhhh give it 5 years & this will be close to 100K for a 2015 model. 61K is a bargain!
Yeah, why not save 10000 and get the TDI, and one would get better mileage.But look at me, Im GREEN,and Im driving a hybrid. The Tahoe hybrid sold really well for GMC, NOT.
Still weighs more than 5000 lbs?? No wonder it manages 18.5 mpg in the hands of one editor. Add to that the high price and and artificial, touchy controls, and it's hard to argue over the diesel.
