2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Drove a 93 Toyota 4x4 Ext. cab I bought new for 15 years (200k) & loved it. Was planning on a new Tundra, researched all the 1500s & Silverado is hands down the best. 5600 miles since 4/7/08, runs like a fine watch, quiet and smooth. If I take it easy 17-18 mpg in city with some freeway, 20-22 on the hwy on the DIC. You can drop 1-1.5 mpg off the DIC mileage & be close. If you get into the torque, goodbye mileage. You can be a hyper-miler if you watch the DIC, learn when to coast on your daily drives, and save your brakes & dollars. I don't have any major complaints, it is as reviewed by many here. I have Z71, wanted Z85 w/6-spd tran. but they ship mostly Z71 on lot. I'll drive it 15+ & like it!
XM and Bose 6-Disc CD, etc. All the lighting. Power rear window and the other 2 in back. Heated seats. When you're driving 60-65 and stomp on the gas it doesn't mess around. Pulling my boat.
Interior: This truck could use a grab bar on the driver's side, better storage overall, telescoping steering wheel, some type of organizer for the console box and a connected trailer brake controller. Exterior: Raise front end, 4 more higher tie down hooks in box. Key unlockable please. 6-spd. tran.
