That doesn’t look bad at all. Similar to the 2012 I just bought with 81k on it in MN that lived half its life in NM.

Biggest concern with these is oil consumption. Many have had the small block replaced, mine has not. Look down at the middle of the engine between the air intake pipes and see if it looks newer there.

Found mine to be burning 1qt/1k miles and it’s just outside the 8 year/100k warranty extension.
