I really do like the steering wheel buttons and quick change features.

I am a truck person always have been. The great think about my Chevy is the dependability, the leg room, and the room to fit my whole family in the truck. I can pull large amounts of weight. The trailer brakes are awesome and so is the backup camera. My regret is. It getting a diesel truck. Current problems sometimes the truck feels like it does not want to go when passing on a freeway. Also the constant updates needed for the radio, GPS and other electronic features.

The amount of horsepower under the hood is rivaled to none in my opinion. This truck has the power to travel long distances and tow just about anything within reason put before it.

A few of my favorite aspects of owning a Chevrolet Silverado truck is how roomy the interior is. When I have traveling companions, there is always enough room to seat everyone comfortably. I also like the fact that I am able to purchase large or bulky items and can tow them myself without hiring a driver. My favorite aspect of owning a Silverado though is the power this truck offers! It has quite a bit of horsepower under the hood and can handle whatever I dish out.

Black with gray interior. Red pinstriping. Chrome wheels.

We have had this vehicle for almost the three years and have bnb had no problems with it outside of the usual maintenance issues. We get pretty good gas mileage for a truck, about 21 to 22 mpg depending on driving conditions. I find the vehicle to be very comfortable and roomy. The only thing I really do not care for is the nav system. My phone gives us better directions than the system in the truck. Over all we would buy another Silverado.
