Motor knocks with low octane. Other than that it's a good truck. Put a 3" lift with 33"s on 20" rims. Chipped, bigger throttle body and cold air intake. No worse on gas than my buddy's F-150 King Ranch.

I have hauled many car trailers both short and long distances and a 10k# boat 1500 miles effortlessly. I couldn't ask for a better tow vehicle. I did expect better fuel mileage on the highway (15mpg). Around town is typical for a truck this size (12mpg).

I drive this truck everyday to work. It's very comfortable, and I feel incredibly safe! When it's not towing a boat or loaded down, it tends to bump along on some of the highways. Also, I personally tend to have a difficult time pulling into straight parking spaces - like an elephant. However, I really like my truck! Absolutely no mechanical issues!
An available PRO TEC composite truck box and optional traction control are the biggest changes for the Silverado this year. New colors have been added and the OnStar vehicle assistance system debuts as a midyear option.
