    I just crossed 2,000 miles the other day, so I think I can give a decent first impression now.

    My likes:

    - The fit and finish is excellent both inside and out.
    - The dual exhaust sounds as good as it looks.
    - The LED headlights are excellent, much better than both my 2016 Silverado and 2017 F-150.
    - Power outlet in the bed comes in handy.
    - They made the CornerSteps in the bumper larger, which is nice.
    - Ventilated seats are cold as ice.
    - Passive locking is very convenient.
    - Bigger cab with lots of storage.
    - Despite being larger and having the same power as my 2016, this truck feels noticeably quicker. The 8-speed shifts like butter.

    Things I donít like:

    - I get a popping noise every once in a while. Sounds like itís coming from the roof.
    - The steering wheel adjustment lever is underneath the steering column, itís a pain to try and make a quick adjustment while driving.
    - No more power adjustable pedals.
    - While the fit and finish of the interior is very good, Iím still not a huge fan of the design.
    - The truck rides a lot more like my F-150s than my old Silverados. You can really feel imperfections in the road and bumps upset this truck way more than my 2016.
    - Auto Start/Stop is not as seamless as I would like. Not a huge problem since I run with it off 90% of the time anyway.

    Overall, Iím enjoying the truck and I believe the positivities outweigh the negatives. Weíll see how I feel a few months down the road.

    Congrats on the new Truck, great color.

    How is the MPG compared to your 2016?

    How is the handling/steering feel compared to the 2016?

    Are the Side mirrors any better (fewer blind spots)?, that is probably my only real gripe with my 2016.

    Enjoy your truck and look forward to some updates on how it's working out for you.
