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.
