My Wife & I really like our new
Silverado. The 6.6 liter Duramax Diesel
with the Allison 5 speed automatic
transmission is the perfect combination
towing our 28 ft. trailer. Our trailer
is concidered a liteweight at around
5,500 lbs. Our truck is capable of
towing almost 12,000 . We have already
towed our trailer a couple times and
experienced no sway from Semi-trucks
passing us up! That was a major problem
we had with our smaller Astro
minivan.As far as gas mileage goes- we
got around 16 mpg towing (mostly
highway driving). I tend to average
about 55 mph on the highway. Driving
solo- we get around 20 mpg combination
highway & city driving.
520 lbs of torque, tow-haul mode
switch. The engine & tranny! The
comfortable seats with lumber support.
Roomy inerior / with our Extended Cab.
The back seat folds up for extra
storage. The 4x4 feature, air
conditioner & heater are great. The cd
player & radio sound great!
