The 5.6-liter, 300-horsepower V-8 engine tows 9,400 pounds and is coupled with a standard five-speed automatic transmission with tow/haul modes. Bed length is 5 feet, 7 inches; ground clearance is 11.5 inches; and payload capacity is 1,850 pounds. Four-wheel drive versions have a "shift on the fly" transfer case.
