I've had my 09 QC 4.7 for about three weeks now and love it. The only complaint I have is that it's a little weak off the line. But, I'm also comparing it to my 99 RC Sport with the 5.9. My 99 would absolutely get gone off the line faster, but after 2,500 RPM, the 4.7 would kill it. I haven't had a chance to tow with it yet, so can't compare that. Too many people want to hook a 6,000 lbs trailer to their truck and still do 0-60 in 6 seconds, and then complain when they blow a motor at 50,000 miles. I'm a firm believer that there is no replacement for displacement, so the 5.7 would have been nice, but the MDS, VVT and all that other stuff scares me. I'm still looking for the dang 4x4 shift lever in my new one...but liking the 4.7. It's a truck, so I don't even bother checking MPG's.
