For all of its power, heavy duty cargo and towing capacity, and rugged looks, its handling capabilities, ride, and interior make it a dream to drive and ride in. Chevy has done it! No longer the so-so looking truck on the road. Its body style makes this truck attractive to even the died-in-the-wool Dodge or Ford enthusiast such as I was prior to the 2007 Silverado HD truck I now own. I love the suspension, electronic 4- wheel drive shifter on the dash and towing capacity of the Vortec 8 cyl., six speed transmission. This truck does not even flinch a little when it is towing my 10,000 pound horse trailer with equipment and our horses. We live in Wyoming so it tows up and down hills.
Everything except gas mileage.
Needs side airbags. In these days of gas prices approaching $3.50 per gallon surely the makers of the Vortec engine can do something about its fuel efficiency without too much effect on power. Come on GM folks-12 mpg on average for both highway and city combined. You've got to better in the future.
