Hey Y'all! I'm excited to be a part of the forum! Ever since I placed the order for my truck back in April I've been all over the forums anxiously awaiting it. After about 7-8 months, and delays at the plant for about 5 months waiting on a chip, the truck finally made it! Boy was it worth the wait, this thing is amazing!! I just got it washed up and figured I'd post a couple pics!

It's a 22 Refresh with the 3.0 Diesel, 20" wheels, adaptive cruise, and the premium package. I've just began the break-in process, and took it on a small road trip down to Houston, but it rides amazingly and I am so happy I picked this truck! Let me know if y'all have any questions, or want to see anything on it. I'd love to be able to help anybody considering placing an order, or wondering what an option that they selected on their order may look like.

What kinda fuel mileage did you get on your road trip?
I’m going to order an SUV and leaning towards the 3.0L Duramax.

I love the 3.0, its got a lot of power, and the 10 speed is really smooth with it. I averaged about 26-27 on the way there, and about 24-25 in moderately windy conditions on the way back, all at about 75 mph. It was crazy good to me, especially coming from a lifted 5.3L that I would average 15-17 on the highway. I'm amazed on how good the fuel mileage is, especially in the city. I still find myself averaging 18-25 in the city.
 
Nice! I've got a 6.2l version of that truck. I wish I would have gotten the Adaptive Cruise, the Configurator wasn't up and no one could tell me if I could get it on an LT at that time.

Nice trucks! It would be interesting to see what you would get if it was chipped!
 
Welcome, nice truck I just picked mine up last week and am hoping to test out the highway mileage with 3.0. I have driven all city for 1st week and computer showing I am getting over 20 mpg and have qtr tank left. Enjoy the truck what I’ve seen on here is mileage should improve a bit after breaking in the 3.0.

That's a beautiful truck, I bet that 6.2 is a beast in that truck! I think the adaptive cruise might've even been on constraint for a bit in the beginning, or at least that's what I was told when I started looking around to order my truck in March/April.

Thank you! It does great on the highway. Coming from a lifted 5.3 with the 6 speed, it amazes me the range this truck has with the 3.0!
 
Took mine on a mini road trip about 200 miles round trip, with many stops, but I forgot to set the trip to see how it did on this short highway run. I ran out to the country to feed the cattle at the ranch since my ranch hand (i.e. brother) who lives much closer is working a turnaround. Drove great on highway could see the MPG improving but it still only has 700 miles so computer is still learning how I drive and the 3.0 Duramax is still being broken in. Next time at the ranch we are going to load up the trailer and tow some black angus to the sale barn.
