My best pickup owned to date.

Great quality in the pickup. Heated leather seats and lumbar support are great. The form fitted floor pads make for easy clean up. The pickup came with a bed rug and a roll up bed cover. The bed rug works great for preventing whatever you load from moving in the box while driving. The bead rug is easily taken out and put back in, based on your needs for hauling. The stereo system is great and works well with XM radio. I also love the towing package. I tow a camper or my boat without any problems. The four wheel drive has been very dependable and has gotten me out of several off road hunting situations that could have been disastrous. This pickup has been great in the field and on the road with an average mileage rate of 28 miles per gallon. I only wish it had a little bigger gas tank! The best part about a later trade in will be the value that a Chevy truck holds vs ford's and dodge's. Cannot wait for my next Chevy Silverado.

It is dependable and easy to maneuver in all weather conditions.

Love the truck. Very comfortable and easy to operate. V8 motor has plenty of power and towing ability. 4x4 works well in the snow. Extended cab with the half rear door looks better than the current four full doors. Solid red without metallic paint and aluminum wheels stock. OnStar and sirius radio is available with subscription service. Towing package is part of the standard Silverado package. Mine came with a soft bed cover and a hard plastic bed liner. Cloth interior with manual controls are very comfortable for my six foot frame. Dash controls are well located and well lit. My only complaints about the truck would be the purchase price and with the automatic function headlights, a dash indicator would be nice.

Never hesitate to get you the best truck made in the USA

Have had no problems, performance,totally reliable, and comfortable for a long ride. Fully loaded just no sunroof or moonroof. Have right at 140,000 miles on it , has never been in the shop except for oil change, alignment, new tires, or total check ( grease rod ends rear end ) it's all highway miles . All Chevrolets I see run little rich on fuel. The first set of tires ( factory) only did 28,000 miles , bought Bridgestone and got 40,000 , than bought hancock and got 63,000 and bought another set of hankook! Changed the plugs at 95,000 and they looked just like the new ones.
