2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab Work Truck 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Overall truck is very good. However some small details on substandard parts I am not happy with. Carpet used is very cheap grade. Vehicle is used for personal use only for transportation. Extra mats had to be used because with little usage the carpet wears right down to bare base. Dealers response,"well its a truck." Two hundred miles over 36,000 miles rear outside door handle fell apart. Dealer charged $200.00 to replace,unfortunately I had $200.00 deductible. My bad for not reading extended warranty thoroughly when I signed because hustler in finance advised us it was $100.00. Now handle on other side in rear is becoming loose. When first handle was repaired tech stated inferior.


Best Features

Truck has been dependable and comfortable.


Worst Features

Better grade carpet for luxury truck and repairs such as poor quality items such as the outside door handle should have been automatically replaced without costs.

2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab LT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Overall, the 2013 Silverado 1500 is a good truck.
It's not necessarily the fastest or most powerful truck out there.
I tend to look more for reliability and easy to use (especially when it comes to internal electronics--radio, cruise control, etc).
Yes Fords have the newer tech in some areas, and their trucks are faster and but I like the tried-and-true engine that GM tends to keep using (ie. the 4.3 Vortec which has been around for the past 2 decades or more).
The 6-speed automatic w/ manual control and the 5.3L V8 is a very nice combo to get for moderate towing and fuel economy.
Crew cab provides enough room for adults in rear seat.


Best Features

Easy to use systems (radio, 4WD, etc). Comfortable although the styling is a bit dated), automatic 4WD is a nice feature to have (if you have 4WD). Radio has all the features you could need (iPod input, USB input, CD player w/ MP3 support) yet it's simple enough to use and you don't really have to look away from the road to figure out how to use it (unlike Ford's MS Sync system which requires a bit more attention and a bigger learning curve to figure out how to use it). I also like washer sprayers on the wiper arms rather than on the hood. And finally the 5.3L V8 w/ 6-speed auto trans is nice. Not the fastest or most powerful out there, but they are all tried-and-true reliable motors.


Worst Features

First, rearrange radio knobs. Put the knobs closer to the driver (the "music" button that sticks out should be closer to the driver, especially for those who shorter arms). Second, I wish they would make 4 wheel disc brakes and fog lights standard on all LT and higher trim levels (they are both still an option for the LT). As well as the integrated brake controller was also included on all LT models (at least, those with 4WD). Cab is not as quiet as some of the competitors, but it doesn't bother me that much. Heavier rear suspension (leaf springs) would be good. Lastly, rear middle seat (in extended & crew cabs) should have head rest for middle rear seat standard.

Review

I have owned over 60 vehicles in my life. This is my second new GM Truck, first was a 2005. I looked at toyota as i drove a tacoma before and loved it but needed bigger. Not impressed. Then Ford, nice truck, but in order to get a decent looking dash you were looking at 40K. I walked away with a 2013 for 31k. Sticker was 43K. Very happy so far. Best value in the segment.


Best Features

rear seats that fold up, MPG is so far 16.5 for brand new truck on first tank.


Worst Features

nothing at this time

Review

Even though the interior is a little behind it is still very functional.
I bought the 4x4 z71 and absolutely love it.
It rides great, sounds great and has plenty of power.
Being able to fold up the back seats and have basically a flat floor makes it very useful to put things in the cab or simply have a flat spot for the dog.
This is my first Silverado and hopefully it will make me a believer!


Best Features

Bluetooth, Onstar, 2- glove compartments, 2 storage spots in center console, Power


Worst Features

Non-Yet!
