2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Pulling power is awesome and driving it makes you feel young and sporty. Fuel it about 20-22 mpg at 72 mph and around 18 around town with 3:73 gears. I get a lot of compliments on looks and size of the Z71. Paint quality is much better than the ford I traded in.


Best Features

Duramax, remote start, climate control, steering wheel controls and size of back seat hauls 3 adults comfortable. Steering is very precise.


Worst Features

Move the door lock button its to easy to lock doors upon exit. Larger fuel tank. Driving lights that come on with headlights. Move fuel filter for easier maintenance

Review

This rig was built for towing. Unbelievable. When towing my RV trailer through west/central Texas hill country, the Allison transmission down shifts and keeps my RPM within 200 rpm. It never struggles, maintains excellent fuel economy. When towing my off road jeep on my 16' trailer is effortless. I have even taken my traction control off and spun the tires of asphalt pavement while accelerating. 660 ft/lb torque is strong!


Best Features

Comfort of the interior, I drove from Texas to Virginia Beach and back. Nice ride!


Worst Features

Hate the bridgestone tires

Review

Saw a few reviews and my 09 2500HD Z71 Duramax came with the running boards, but a spray in Box Liner would have been great. Had a 01 2500HD with the duramax and loved the truck, had lots of power, hated the problem with the injectors. (3 sets in 200,000 Km) at $5400 a set it really is a ripoff. (why I traded it in was a toss up between a dodge and the Chevy) At least on the 09 injectors are easier to get at on the new Chevy. would have liked more power, the 01 seemed to have more get up and go. The only problem that I have heard from a friend that has a 09 is the air filter sucking in moisture and freezing in cold weather, will wait to see of this one does the same thing.


Best Features

Duramax/Allison, ride and look of the truck


Worst Features

include spray in box liner, more storage in the cab, bit more leg room in extended gab back. Bigger tires.

Review

This is the first pickup I've had in a while and I love it. Great performance. I was a little disappointed in the beginning with my fuel economy but now that I have about 8000 miles on it I am getting about 20- 21 mpg on the highway and about 14-15 mpg in town. When towing I don't even notice my travel trailer behind me anymore. The Allison transmission is great too. My only regret is that I didn't hold out for a leather interior because I expect to keep this truck for a long time.


Best Features

Duramax and Allison transmission combination. Towing capacities and acceleration.


Worst Features

A standard backup camera would be nice.

Review

I wanted a tough and comfortable truck which would be my daily driver. I also wanted a truck to do a little plowing in the winter and haul a trailer on weekends during the summer. This truck is perfect for everything I need. Very comfortable, great to drive, looks great and the interior is nice. I have the 6.0 ltr crew cab with the z85 trailering suspension package, skid plate, camper mirrors, and integrated trailer brake. I also got the bluetooth and remote start. I have owned the dodge with the hemi, that truck does not compare. The exhaust is loud for a stock system fyi, but anyone buying a 2500 should appreciate the deep tone.


Best Features

My favorite features are the remote start, the blue tooth for my phone (which i use everyday) and the xm radio. Also the styling is great. The ride quality cannot be beat.


Worst Features

I think a truck of this price and quality should come with a sprayed in bed liner. I know other companies don't do this, but chevy should add it to the option list. I had the bed looking ten years old in the first month of ownership. This is the only thing I will be adding to the truck.
