I assume that's a warranty against manufacturer defects, not a guarantee that it will last forever. Excellent, but maintenance and repair of parts that wear out will still be required.

The lifetime of the drivetrain!

If you are considering the diesel, look into the costs of fuel and maintenance (and the upcharge for the diesel engine) vs fuel economy. It will very possibly work out in favor of the gas engine.

I ditched my deisel and went gas. On these light trailers, the diesel was overkill. Really, even the hemi is overkill but it is nice to have a full size truck, and the extra power.

My '96 Tahoe 5.6L V-8 4x4 has "1500" attached to the door trim if that helps.. ... Regular gas, ranges from 12-16mpg depending on the terrain, drive feels like you're sitting on your living room couch. However, I seen the latest ones got poor reviews.

Oh, did I mention the'96 is paid for?
