Great truck, bad MPG
By Matt on
2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT1 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 8 ft. LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
2008 LT1 LT 1500 Z71 XCAB long bed. This is a replacement for the same truck but a 2002. I love this truck, plenty of power, very comfortable, nice options. I call it the contractor's Cadillac, the ride is awesome for a long bed extended cab truck. So far just a few small gliches at 2800 miles. Fit and finish is very nice.
Dash layout, comfort, rear doors open wide great for kids to get in/out. Engine power. OnStar is so cool!
MPG is terrible. I average 11.5-12 mpg. Active Fuel Mgmt is a joke if you don't commute with it. Seat material picks up everything, impossible to vacuum. Make the trip/mpg computer standard. Sirius radio instead of XM.
