I believe we have a winner.
One note of curiosity is that the RT was first sold in Canada, so the speedometer is in KPH with the MPH in smaller numbers underneath. Takes a little adjusting.
Those Chevy Express-based "b's" are pretty sweet. With good tires, proper alignment, and new shocks they will cruise at any legal speeds (not that I recommend it). The long wheel base that helps on the highway, results in a parking lot turning radius of the Queen Mary.
My wife almost refuses to drive, but when she did, she had no problem. I have no problem driving anywhere including into traffic. To me, the big adjustment was relying on mirrors and the rear-view camera. But once you do, you realize there are no blind spots which is a huge confidence builder. And coming from larger rigs, you will enjoy driving in the twistys and passing up gas stations due to a 14-16 mpg range.
