11,000 miles and no complaints

2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck 2dr Regular Cab 8 ft. LB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
Great truck. Have the 5.3L with 3.42 rear end and tow pkg. Window sticker said 21 mpg hwy, 16 mpg city and that's what I've been getting. But that's if doing the speed limit. Averaging 18.6 mpg over the 11,000 miles. Worst mpg was 14.9 this winter. Got 16 mpg when towing tandem axle trailer (55 mph max speed) on a 400-mile round trip, loaded with upright piano, furniture, and empty trailer on the way back. Plenty of power for towing and normal driving.
Exterior style. Radio and heat/AC controls. MPG. Oil life monitor. Range of vehicle - one long trip, put 578 miles on one tank and still had 4 gallons left in tank at fill (34 gallon tank).
Stretch the regular cab by 6" so that there is storage room, but I guess that's why there's an extended cab model. Additional tie down points in bed.
