A solid and reliable work truck for the past 22 years.
I like very much this truck, which has given me good service since I bought it in 1999, hence for the past 22 years. It is comfortable, compact (relative to the behemoths that Chevy makes today), and efficient (21+ mpg on the highway with the V-engine and a standard transmission with overdrive). It is the basic, "work truck" model, but I got it with a heavy payload, so it works fine even and handles well, when loaded with honey-filled bee hives weighing nearly 2000 pounds total. I also like the color, Meadow Green, which was offered just one year, I think. There are not many green pickup trucks out there. A pity, methinks.
