2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
This is my 3rd Chevy truck and I can't believe the upgrades. My last was an 04 Crew Z71 4x4. A nice truck, but it is no comparison to this truck. Fit and finish is superb, ergonomics are awesome. Ride is phenomenal. Enough adjectives. Early on, it's a really nice upgrade to the previous generation "workmanlike" truck. I'll have to wait and see on reliability, my 04 had it share of issues in the early going, but I'm loyal to Chevy.
Layout of dash, seat comfort, radio controls.
I think this "active fuel management" is a joke. Unless you are feathering the throttle, or going downhill, I don't see it being a true factor in fuel economy. But then again, I didn't buy a Prius either...so it doesn't matter too much to me.
