2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 XFE 4dr Crew Cab 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 6A)
I put a good 10,000 miles on it while in Alabama and it performed well.
The real test was to come - I had it shipped to Alaska, upon moving, and have put 6,000 Alaska miles on it since being up here during one of the worst winters in history.
I have to say, this truck performed flawlessly.
Although, per the dealership here, it is suggested to not use AUTO 4x4 as it will eventually ruin the 4x4 - Just keep it in 4 High in inclement conditions.
Ice, Snow, Mud, Slush, not a problem for the Silverado.
Ya, the interior sucks compared to Ford, but I dont care to much.
Love the huge center console/elbow rest.
Gas mileage in AL and AK have been consistent at 15.4 on cruise, all HWY miles.
Exterior, Performance, 7 Cup Holders Up Front (?)
Interior......so plain, but it works.
Especially the Bluetooth (Allstar Package)
