Gas saver compared to heavy duty trucks, ice cold ac, can fit in tight spaces

2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

Ten vehicle I drive is the best vehicle I have ever driven. Sure it's a work truck but I feel like I'm in a luxury vehicle it's a regular cab Silverado short bed. A 3 seater with ice cold ac during the summer. Since the cab is small the air conditioning gets really cold fast. You can also use the vehicle to move place and haul heavy items and Thank you just can't carry in your small car. Like furniture or big items for households. I believe my 2013 Chevy Silverado is one of a kind with excellent power and drivability.

Chevy Silverados are Comfortable Vehicles

2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

The Chevy Silverado truck I drive is one of the most comfortable vehicles I have ever been in. It has plenty of room and comfortable seats, a good amount of cup holders, and the extended cab version can hold a good amount of passengers. The main issues I have with this truck, though, are the amount of gas I have to buy and how difficult it is to park due to size. If those aren't an issue for you, it is a very nice vehicle to drive. It is a smooth ride and it feels more like driving a smaller car (minus the parking.)

wonderful truck as long as you keep up with the maintenance

2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

no problems with my truck I do keep up with it and it's paid off. I keep the il change up to date and the spark plugs up to date and I keep it tuned up and new tires and I haven't had a problem since I've bought it. I bought it back I 2013 off the lot and it runs the same as the day I bought it

The family life work truck.

2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

Chevy is my number one pick. Never had a major problem; just usual maintenance and occasionally minor interior issues. The seat could be more comfy or adjustable to my small stature. I can always rely on it to get up and go especially since I use a lot of country roads with crazy drivers.

- Susan E

One dependable and perfect sized truck!

2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

This vehicle is so comfortable to drive. Very easy to maneuver to park. Spacious for my family. Very dependable for day to day errands or jobs on our small farm. It easily to our camper and stock trailer. Just now in 2019, needing to replace the battery!
