I don't know how you can use a pickup as a daily driver. I took my '15 Sierra 1500 to the grocery store this afternoon and soon regretted it (I was just being lazy, as it was parked in the closer of my two driveways and the weather today was rainy and I just wanted to get in something quickly and get my running around done). It serves its purpose for trips that are require its abilities as a truck, but any other time, well lets just say I'm not a pickup truck guy and I grab other keys. Although, I will admit it is far more enjoyable than the pickup truck that preceded it.

Why not make it 100 miles by taking the long way home and having even more fun?

Our truck is a powerstroke f350. Although it's primarily used for towing our camper, I really enjoy driving it. 800lb-ft of torque is just silly fun.

The QV is my daily driver for one year exactly. I've already made more than 25'000 Km (15'500 miles) without any problems.

I begin my second winter with a set of Continental Winter Contact TS830P (front : 245/35/19, rear : 265/35/19).
It's really fun on snow, but a little bit tricky when you have to restart on a hill climb.

Every day I drive my QV put me a big smile on my face !

It is a daily driver for me. Just installed a winter set, will see how it performs through the winter.
