My complaints about the T1x interiors: 1. Lack of color options for the AT4/Denali. 2. I strongly dislike the 4WD controls being buttons. 3. The gauge cluster is terrible - looks very cheap. Even on the Denalis, I like the K2 graphics much better. I drove a 2019 Ram Rebel for a week. Loved the interior minus the red accents (created some glare). When I go to buy another 1/2 ton, I'd buy the Ram simply for the interior if they're all the same in price. The current Ford interior is better in layout and looks than the T1x interior. GM really missed the mark here. And I still like the interior (truck one) in my GMT-900. It's a little basic, but looks good and is functional.
Some dealers outsource the "internet" side of the house, so the person that is texting/calling might not even work for that dealership, but a corporation that generates leads. You'll need to go into a dealer and develop a relationship with someone who can help you out. It can be done, even at the national chains.
I don't have that information. What I meant was that given the price I was able to get this truck, it was a no-brainer to do it. The local dealership matched the deal I could get at Laura, which was my backup plan.
I joined the K2 (non-SUV) crowd - traded in my 2017 F250 for a 2019 Sierra 2500 4x4 Denali Duramax last week. Was going to wait for the 2020 HD's, but after seeing the pictures, specs, and 2019 1500 interiors and finally, most importantly, the price, I worked out a great deal for this truck. It will complement my DD 2016 Yukon Denali quite well. I tow a 8000 lb camping trailer and this truck will be a dream to tow with this summer.
What is the production start date?
And you know what's better than both? Good old column shift! You're right though - even my wife hated the Dodge Ram I rented for a week with that knob shifter.
Keep your console shift out of my truck.
I currently have both. If money isn't the factor, get the SUV. You can do almost everything except haul bulk items. Just buy/borrow/rent a small trailer for those items. Dirty, smelly, wet camp gear etc easily remedied by using plastic storage totes to keep in the back. Firewood the same, coolers, etc. I've hauled one sheet of plywood in 10 years in my truck. Get what works for you based on what you actually DO, not what you MIGHT DO. The pickup will have lower ownership costs. If I had to pick one, I'd keep the SUV because that works best for what I do. Good luck.
Great review. I sat in a new 2019 Z71 the other night. And then in a 2018 Z71, they were side by side. Some things I noticed: Exterior looks great. Didn't like the center stack interior, frankly the whole interior makes the K2 interior look simple and refined. Looking into it from the side all I saw was that huge plastic piece under the steering wheel. Wasn't a huge fan on the seating position, I could barely see the hood. The K2 hood looks massive in front of the driver. Finally, they made the cab much roomier inside, although I'd have to do a side-by-side with a F-series to see if it's the same size. The new cab made the K2 seem small.
Looking forward to seeing one in person. I'm an HD buyer now and wish GM would release some information on the new HD trucks coming out, before I pull the trigger on a 2018 F350 next week. Zane, how do you feel the new Intellilink is? The current version is terrible, map resolution is horrible, and Sync3 puts it to shame in almost all ways.
