More con than pro
By SGT509 on
2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 8 ft. LB (5.3L 8cyl 6A)
The 1500 is made to drive down the highway empty not use for anything. The 6 speed auto trans downshifts on every little hill. My gas mileage is poor. Three tanks of gas and I have gotten 14.8, 15.1 and 15.8. No wonder they took out the standard gas mileage calculator. GM puts in an odd size spare tire. You can't add accessories to the 1500 like extra battery, plow, etc. It has soft paint that easily scratches. It has a small turn knob to put it in 4WD. Poor color choices. Lots of XM dead spots. Even my Z-71 package has very little ground clearance because of the plastic scoop below the front bumper.
Rides smooth and quiet. For the first time ever, I can actually hear the words to the music on the radio.
Make a camper package so you can charge a second battery. Put a spare under that matches the tires on the truck. Have more color choices. What ever happened to the good looking 2 tone Cheyenne colors?
