2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 4dr Extended Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
Purchased primarily as a tow vehicle. Considered all of the full size trucks and decided on Silverado based on incentives and maturity of design. Liked the look of the GMC a little better but got the best deal on the Chevy. No issues in 8 months, everything functions as it should. Surprisingly quiet for a truck. All Star package gave me everything I needed (5.3 V-8 & tow package) at a substantial discount.
Tow package, have towed about 3,000 miles and never a problem accelerating into traffic or maintaining speed on hills.
Six speed transmission and variable cylinder management helps with fuel economy.
USB port for music.
Would like to be able to disable automatic door locks (maybe I just haven't figured them out).
