Overall:

As always, GM products have transmission problems in automatics. ALSO, the fuel saving cylinder that cuts fuel causes motor damage. Therefore I will probably be buying a ford or dodge. May just buy a damn mule and wagon

Family Work Horse — I bought this truck in 2013. It was the logical next step for me as I had owned one of the last S10 Blazer ZR2's ever produced. The Truck offered me the ability to haul things and later to even move me from one house to another. I use the truck for its ability to get around better in the winter now. Lately it has shown other assets of being a good family vehicle as it helps us move gardening supplies and lumber. I love this truck as most guys do with there's. Drive One and you will see why its is one of the best.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Power and reliability. Its about the only GM product that don't have the recalls that others have

Cons: Fuel mileage is good but I think over time it could be improved

Perfect Do-anything Truck — I love my Silverado. Gets mid-20's mpg on the highway and 17 around town. Packed the bed with 1500lbs of cargo and it handled no sweat. Lots of great power. Minimal road noise, sweet smooth long wheelbase. Parking garages are a real nightmare, however. Not many V8's can live up to the reputation for quality and power of Chevy's 5.3 and I love it.

Pros: 5.3l V8 power, 6-speed fuel efficiency.

Cons: Turning radius.

Best Two Door Silverado — drives great, a lot of power, and a lot of looks. This is every guys dream truck to just have fun in the streets. People like seeing and hearing my truck when it comes by and take pictures of it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fully custom truck

Cons: its can only fit 3 people

No Complaints — My decision came down to a 2012 Toytoa Tundra and the 2012 Silverado and I chose the Silverado because the interior is much nicer looking and comfortable. The price for a fully loaded Silverado is around $45,000 compared to the $55,000 price tag on the Tundra.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Interior is much nicer than any of the other truck models. Price is reasonable compared to a Tundra.

Cons: Would like to be able to connect phone like you can with a Ford or Toyota.
