This truck is absolutly outstanding.
Before I owned it, a rancher out in the Houston area owned it.
He had to haul horse trailers, trailers with hay bales, tractors, you name it. From what the dealership told us, the previous owner had it stuck in a river for three days.
The only thing needing replacement was the computer system.
Since we have had it, all i have had to replace was a fuel pump.
ive dont everything imaginable in this truck.
I can cruise at 85 no problem.
You wouldent even know that my 30' rv was behind the truck because it doesnt strain the engine at all.
This truck is perfect for anything.
No matter what you put it through, it wont stop. EVER

I purchased this vehicle with 8000 miles on it, a dealer demo model. It has been an awesome truck: strong, durable, versatile, dependable. Been a lot of things that I cannot count on in my life but this is definitely a machine you can count on. I tow an 11k fifth wheel with it with no problem and even with this load it handles great. Even with a five speed this vehicle exceeds my expectations of performance. Never put gasoline in them by accident though. I did, but even then, a quick trip to the dealer and she still runs like new. Also, I had a friend with a Ford 250. We both got caught in a hailstorm. His hood had dents all over it. Mine had none! Stronger sheet metal too! Yep.
This year all heavy-duty Silverados receive a redesigned hood and grille. On extended and crew cab models, a power sunroof is a new option, and it includes a HomeLink universal transmitter and deluxe overhead console.
