The power in the new Silverado's is
what made me pick it above the
competition. The new look is great
too. It rides quite comfortably and
handles very well for a full-size
pickup. With the biggest tires
available stock from Chevy, the lowest
point to the ground besides the tire is
approximately 9.5 inches off the ground
which is exceptional ground clearance
for a stock truck. With what I do to
pickups, i need the kind of off-road
performance that the Z71 off-road
package delivers. This is a good truck.
The 5.3L Vortec V8 is amazing in such a
small body, and thus far i have enjoyed
the convenience of the auto-trac 4WD
If it's possible, Chevy could greatly
benefit from offering the 6.0L V8 in
the 1500 series, and it would be nice
to get the 8.1L too, but thats just
wishful thinking. Great overall truck.
