My new Siverado
By jaycro on


2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71 LTZ 4dr Crew Cab 6.5 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


I drove and considered the Ford
platinum ,the Ram Laramie along with the Silverado LTZ . All were really nice trucks. I chose the Silverado because it clearly drove and rode like a modern sedan,the Ram had a slightly better ride but drove like a truck and used a lot of gas,the Ford looked and drove like an older design..With 700 miles I can report the gas mileage is excellent. Today I drove 70 miles to a boat dealer to pick up a 15' jon boat and trailer. With 2 adults driving 70 or better I averaged 24.8mpg.Return trip with boat and trailer(estimated weight 600 lbs) I averaged 19.8 mpg. Not bad for a 5000 lb truck with 4wd. Fit and finish is excellent interior and exterior.

Best Features

Drives and rides like a very nice sedan More quite interior than my new Chrysler SRT and my wife's new Infiniti M56 Boise stereo with Pandora is lux car sound and quality and is better than our other cars

Worst Features

Chevy really nailed this truck and about the only thing I would like to see is a power side step like the Ford Platinum and air suspension like the Ram

I just purchased my 2014 4x4 chevy 5.3 silverado and having quite a few trucks, this one has to be the best. I'm sorry to read where so many have have problems, but my dealer and truck has been top notch. This is the very first new vechicle I ever had and have had over 500 autos and trucks. I was cauious to see what problems I would come across but so far been lucky and happy. Hope everyone elses' problems get solve and could be as happy as I am with mine.
