My new crew cab

Postby Walt » Mon Mar 03, 2014 9:19 am

Well I was bound to get another crew cab at some point....

LOL technically it IS a crew cab. Four full-size doors. :)

2013 LT model w/ 33k miles on her. 3.6l V-6. She'll absolutely fly! 0-60 in 6.3 seconds. Already added some chrome exhaust tips to the duals, and a spoiler. Next order of business is a rear strut tower brace, then front. Then an ECM tune to get rid of the granny pedal.

Nice ride, slightly better mileage too I bet ;)

Yea no kidding. I get better gas mileage with this thing doing 110mph at WOT up a hill than I did with the CC at 55mph on a straight highway with the wind at my back... :roflmao:

I guess I am the lucky one that I didnt get too bad of MPGs with my V6 crew. Best I ever got was 22, but usually got 19-20 highway and 15-17 combined. And i have NJ crap gas, and i had constant misfires on #3 lol. The V8 seems to get about the same mileage of the V6 but with plenty more oooompphh. Averages about 18-20 highway, with 30 inch tires too

Nice ride though, good luck with it! I drove quite a few of those cars but never anything above the base model for your average retired grandparents.
