Great Truck — I love this truck. Saved my life in a nasty wreck. But it was a very nice truck. Plenty of power and with a positrac rear end it all goes to the road.

Pros

Overall a great pickup

Cons

Gas, but its a pickup so who cares.

Awesome — Its a great pickup with decent power for the engine that it has. My silverado has a 5.3L and it keeps up with most stuff but there are always other pickups that will get it. Seats in it are nice and back seat space is respectable for only being extended cab.

Plenty of power on tap, easy on fuel if you want it to be.

Seems to chew up tires (even after aligned)

Greatest Fullsize Crew Available - Period. — Not too sure how to put it, other than freakin awesome overall truck. Had a Toy Tacoma crew prior, and now with the full size Silverado I get the same gas mileage, and way more HP, towing capacity, and brute. My wife is the main driver, and she loves her truck. Whether towing a camper, the fourwheeler, or cruzing empty, this truck commands the road just fine, and rides well. We run Mobile1 synthetic, and have had no mechanical issues. Electrically we did have to get the blower motor replaced, and this year they changed the towing wiring harness pin layout which threw us for a loop, but other than that, it's a great truck, and I would buy it again - no question.

About My Truck — I like the truck alot, it handles and rides great, needs a little more power, which i will take care of that. It has just the right amount of options that i needed, gas mileage isnt to bad either. Will have alot more fun when it has more power, 6 inch lift, and 35 inch tires. Can we say going to dunes!!!

This Is The First New Chevrolet Truck I Have Bought. — This truck has a 5.3 motor and autotrans. Is works great for pulling my camper or my horse trailer. Driving to work I can get 18 mpg. A great truck for the money.

Miles Driven per Year:36,000

Pros

large, heavy, powerful, exhaust rumble

Cons

not 4x4, no manual trans

The Palace — Mechanically dependable, clean on the inside and out, Its a workhorse so it can take a beating...but dont get any ideas lol, The majority of this 6400lb truck is steel and iron so try not to crash into it. It doesnt get awesome mpg but thats ok. All in all, I highly recommend it as a comfortable, reliable, decent powered vehicle.

Clear — Solid truck, decent gass miliage, smooth ride, I LOVE the tonue cover! it keeps everything nice and dry and locks when the doors lock, Overall a very nice dependable chevrolet!! It rides smooth and has enough power to pull anything ive ever needed to pull. I sure miss the dual exaust from the old rig though.... she's pretty quite!!

Built To Last — Never had an issue with this truck. It's been very reliable. This truck is very comfortable to drive. We use it for camping and trips to the coast. We will definitely buy another chevy pickup when it comes time to buy.

Primary Use: Commuting to work
