I owned a Silverado with the 6.2
Detroit Diesel, and it now has over
300,000 miles. I bought the new Chevy
with the Duramax for serveral reasons,
but the Duramax and Allison
transmission make this truck a truly
great vehicle. There is literally no
comparison in the market, and the
improved torque and horsepower on the
Duramax is an incredible feat. The
fuel economy is up substantially, and
the emissions are down. I look at this
truck as a vehicle that will last past
the point of wanting to keep driving it.
This is a great truck!
The XM satellite, onstar, heated seats,
and other amenities make this truck
very comfortable to drive on those
I'm getting between 18.5 and 20.5 miles
to the gallon on the highway.
I would like to see better leather on
the seats, more sound buffers under the
hood and around the doors to help
dampen the noise of the loud diesel.
