After 20 + years of Silverados I decided to upgrade to an EXT since I've retired and don't really need a "working truck" any more. I'm completely satisfied with the looks, performance, comfort and handling. I pull a travel trailer occasionally and need the power so mileage wasn't really a concern. At this point I don't see my going to any other type if and when I purchase another one.
Looks, power, comfort, options, (touch screen nav.,rear camera, DVD for the G- kids). full 5 person seating and full bed capability.
Roller system for easier bed loading of heavy objects. (nothing slides on this bed) maybe a little more storage area for the driver, cup holders with removable inserts so you can put larger cups in them.
The ride is much more comfortable than my GMC Denali. It handles and responds well.It has plenty of storage room.It accelerates great and corners well. I would recommend this truck (luxury vehicle) to anyone that asks. However it could stand some improvements to compete with the imports.
Locking tailgate,large nav display and clear rear-view camera. Power running boards are great. Heated and cooled seats.Rain sensing wipers and cool display gauges. HID head lights
Telescoping steering wheel, auto power up Windows like imports have (Lexus), center console is loose, lack of interior storage, poor fuel economy, the cup holders are awkward to get to. They should have eliminated the ashtray and lighter and made that storage for small items. Roller system for back end
Very quiet and smooth. Nice new features. Lots of power. However, does not feel quite as quick as my 04 EXT, that only had a 4 speed automatic & 345 HP. Acceleration from lower speeds feels like the engine's power is not fully making it to the wheels. Acceleration from higher freeway speeds is awsome. This vehicle does so many things well, that it is hard for me to consider driving anything else. Let's see, It has nice overall styling, great power, luxury seating / interior & comforts that match just about any luxury vehicle, plus tremendious utility. Could use an MP3, bluetooth hook-up, and more cubby storage spaces inside.Those minor things aside, a safe practical vehicle for many purposes.
Quiet and smooth ride, great power. Very nice luxury car like interior with plently of room, for passengers and cargo. Versatility, AWD, towing. Great new touch screen NAV & radio, much improved. Power side steps are pretty cool, and finally a power lock for the tailgate. Remote start also nice.
A power opening & closing tailgate would be nice. A slide out cargo bed platform would also make loading and unloading easier, without having to open the bed cover as often. MP3 and bluetooth should be included, more inside storage compartments,and bring back the front seat fold down armrests
Wow! What a beautiful truck! Powerful, functionality as a truck, but luxurious appointments, all in one. The exterior turns heads and receives many compliments. But the interior is wonderful -- great style, nice materials, an incredible Bose surround sound system. Life is good in this truck.
Cooled seats, heated steering wheel, power folding running boards, and the 22's are just sick! And what would a Cadillac be without Bose!
Bluetooth phone connectivity, iPod connectivity (hey, how about a Bose Media System?) , express- up windows, and a telescoping steering wheel would be nice.
