2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I owned a Big Ram truck for 10 years before getting the Chevy, and have rented Suburbans, F150's and Expeditions to compare. Hi-oh silver and away, chevy engine and electric transmission both 2WD and 4ED has been awesome, and I really like the AUTO feature that functions similar to AWD, it rules on gravel and dirt roads. If your a regular size (Big and tall driver) person, the cab is a little short, (compared to Ram) and the seats are not as comfortable, but the electric transmission controls are great! (rather than the Vacuum powered Ram cruise and 4WD) Ford has better (on newer models) digital cruise control, the Chevy struggles with keeping speed downhill in the rockies, usually you need to set it 10 miles an hour under where you want to drive to make it work. Chevy's steel bed rules over the Ford F-150, if your going to use for anything other than soft cargo! Ram was easier to get larger tires on for more semi serious off road running around, even on chevy Z71 Sport trim. I wish chevy had a longer warranty as like all GM's I have owned several fiddly bits (sensors) failed during and right after the short warranty period of three years. All my friends have trouble finding the door handle which is low and Black on Black, the on star big mirror blocks some the front lateral visibility, and the newer trucks have better viewing mirrors. I think that the basic 5K more that a Chevy costs over roughly equivalent Rams and Fords is not worth it, unless a wonderful powerful engine and transmission is higher on your list of what you love about trucks!

Review

If you are buying this Silverado w/leather seating, be sure to add heated seats. Had vehicle 3 years now and no unusual repairs other than maintenance.

Review

I have ut most confidence in the Lt or above Chevy trucks...we have 3 of them for personal use...better than a car any day and with active fuel management we get better mileage than friends who have AWD small SUVs with 6 cylinder. Again Chevy Trucks Rock
