I've had this truck for just over a year now. It's already made two cross-country trips and has been driven everywhere from the Colorado mountains to the Arizona desert.
I have not had any problems whatsoever with the reliability or performance of the truck. It rides extremely comfortably and handles well in terms of breaking, acceleration, and turning.
I have not gotten the advertised fuel milage based on the calculations the Sync system displays. I got 18.0 MPG driving from San Diego to Charleston, and get 17.3 MPG averaged city and highway regularly. Still good for a full sized truck.
Overall, I am extremely happy with my purchase. If I had to do it again, I'd get the same truck.
EcoBoost Engine - reliable and plenty of power on highway
Full Manual transmission mode - can use thumb toggle to shift gears
Seats - have received many compliments on how comfortable they are...also not difficult to clean
Rear seats- leg room in the SuperCab is comparable that of double cab Tacoma. Rear seats have full headrests which I like for the sake of protecting any rear-seat passengers. When I test-drove the Silverado, the head rests on the rear seats did not prevent my head from going back and making contact with the rear windshield.
Center Console- plenty of storage space
Factory reverse lights are not very bright. I didn't think they gave me enough light to see behind me when backing up. I added Rigid Industries Dually LED lights under the bumper with a switch in the cab. These give me more than enough light.
The Sync dashboard display should also show the vehicles speed digitally.
More storage room under rear seat.
