We just turn 6,000 miles on our 07 2500HD crew cab with Duramax diesel and we love this truck. We traded in our 04 1500 extended cab for this truck. We looked at the 07 2500 classic trucks, but glad we waited. Vast improvement inside & out, higher bed sides on outside, completely new interior inside, no more cheap plastic pieces. Thicker leather on seats, great new dash with radio that can mix memory between FM, AM & XM for each "FAV" setting. Towing is incredible, beats any gas engine, any size. You can barely tell you are towing, very comfortable, able to tow our trailer up Mammoth upgrade on 395 with cruise control on, passing all the sad little gas engines on the side of the road!
Redesigned interior, including black leather. Fit and finish is great, and nice upgrade on materials. Intergrated brake control. Duramax diesel, pulls our toyhauler & bikes (10,000+ lbs) w/ little effort & very quite. Easy flip up back seats w/ flat floor, leaves big interior space. Camping mirrors.
Front bumper, would be nicer as all steel than plastic pieces on ends. Turning radius. Stiff ride, but it is a 3/4 ton truck.
Just put 6000 miles on our 07 2500HD crew cab with the Duramax diesel. We replaced our 2004 Silverado 1500 for towing our toy hauler, which is 10,000+ lbs when loaded with bikes. It tows with ease, very comfortable even up steep grades. Handeling is good, corners well too. The cabin is also much nicer, leather on seats is thicker than on our 04 truck. Overall interior fit and finish just as nice as any import. The trailering mirrors are great, much bigger than previous and with smaller miror on bottom. I can now actually see cars in blind spots. Overall we are very happy with our upgrade to the 2500 HD with Duramax diesel, just a great truck.
Black interior, new for Silverado, hides the interior wear and tear of being a truck pretty well. Trailering mirrors. Quite cabin, even with diesel much quieter than 07 gas truck. Radio memory channels that you can mix AM, FM & XM. Much less plastic on exterior, so easier to wax. Split back seat.
Put a steel bumper all the way across on front, rather than plastic parts on ends. Tighter turning radius. Standard step on LTZ.
Just got this truck last week. Very comfortable to drive. Power is amazing, particularly off the line. Very quiet. Won't fit in the garage as it is too tall and long. A bit disappointed with the Bose sound system. Nice but certainly not audiophile quality. Nav system very user friendly. In new body style, they changed the passengers dome light from an airliner reading light to a more generic light. Result is that the light cannot be turned away from driver at night resulting in too much glare.
Power, interior, gotta get the Nav system, quiet, adjustable pedals. Seat fold up in back giving space from floor to ceiling
No side air bags, would like to have had a back-up camera.
After having two Z71 Suburbans, I gave in and purchased a truck that could pull my 30ft. RV and still be driver in the city. This is a great truck, quality is tops. I have almost 4000 miles and have not had any problems. I have also noticed that once the truck warms up, the mileage is not bad for a big gasoline engine. I have averaged 16 on the road and around 13 in town. Considering the size, power etc. this is not bad. The six speed transmission is great for pulling. My RV weighs in at about 7500lbs and you can't even tell it's there. I have driven in North Carolina pulling the trailer in the mountains with no issues. I haven't missed my Suburban.
Power pulling a trailer. Bose sound system. Comfortable interior.
A little more room in the front wheel area for larger tires.
