AwsomeTruck! Need to improve mpg
By Kyle on
2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT1 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
I have been very impressed with my truck. The Silverado rides so smooth on the highway, I would rather travel in my truck than any other vehicle. Also, mechanically the trick is amazing! The 5.3 is a strong, quiet, and smooth running engine. My ony complaint has been the fuel mileage. It seems the '"active fuel management" doesn't help much at all. The rating on the sticker said 16 city and 20 mpg highway. I get closer to 13 city and 15.8 on the highway. I don't think I'll ever see 20mpg. Other than that I am extremely happy with my truck and plan on keeping it a long time! Thanks Chevy for building such a great truck! just need to improve mpg
Ride, looks, engine, interior, and build quality. I have truly been amazed with how quiet, smooth, and solid my Silverado is. The 5.3 Vortec is very powerfull! The engine is smooth and responsive, tranny shifts like butter. Also love the comfy seats
Fuel economy. Speakers. They have rattled since day 1 and dont have much bass. Also, The black spoiler on the bottom of the front bumper seems to hinder ground clearence and makes the appeareance of the Z71 and 4x4's look too low in the front. My Z71 4x4 looks more like a 2wd in the front.
