Re: rear axle gears

I agree, just not worth the cost IMO. I am one of the people who bought the V6 for gas mileage and I knew what the gear ratio was when I bought it. I do wish they had options for gear ratios like Ford does with their trucks (chevy used to but not much options with this model year). I guess they figured 99% of the people out there are not concerned with gear ratios and I would say that is right when it comes to a SUV that is mainly bought to haul groceries by most people.

Re: rear axle gears

Those with tow packages should have gotten 3:92s. That's the way it used to be. It would make a world of difference in take off, and a tiny difference at the pump.

Re: rear axle gears

No, currently tow packages do not include different axle ratios.
