The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado offers up all the ruggedness and capability you demand from a full-size truck, but in a more conservatively styled package than you get from Ford, Ram and others....

AWESOME Replacement Truck

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ

I completely, absolutely love my 2018 Chevy Silverado LTZ Z71 Midnight Edition (purchased December 2018), it is an amazing, safe, reliable, dependable, and I’m always getting compliments on it. I love the touch screen (that makes it easy to navigate for GPS, music, and phone calls), the steering wheel buttons (control/change the music, answer/make phone calls, and change what I want to see on the Driver’s Information Center screen), and the full-length center console. It gets pretty good MPGs for being a full-size truck, been averaging mid-high 17s. I have a few dislikes, it does not came with a leveling kit install at/from the factory, does not have airbags on the rear suspension to lift the tail (when towing), and Chevy changed the full-length center consoles with the 2016 models (no more movable cup holder, less USBs, and no SD card slot). I bought this truck to replace the 2015 Silverado LTZ Z71 (purchased November 2015), which was totaled in a head-on collision (July 2018), when I was able to walk and return to work.

AWESOME TRUCK HIGHLY RECOMMEND

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT

first off I've always wanted the Chevrolet Silverado. It's an amazing truck. You feel so safe in it when you're driving it. The black color is a must. Took a road trip around 2400 miles to and back and it was so comfortable the seats are nice and sturdy, drove through the night and the high beams were amazing. The gas mileage is nice it has around 400 miles in a full tank even though filling up is around $60 it's actually not bad. The touch screen is nice everytime I enter the truck it automatically connects to my phone and starts playing music. The vanity mirror light automatically adjusts if it's day or night. The Chevrolet Silverado drives really smooth and the engine isn't too loud. The lights automatically turn on of off for example if it's bright outside the lights turn off and if it's getting dark they automatically turn on. The downside is you can't turn on the lights yourself but you can add the high beams.

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 lt 4x4.

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT

Have only owned this vehicle for a month. Although fairly new, was purchased used. I chose this truck because I am a fan of the gm 5.3. As far a comfort levels, I love it. Has plenty of technology that makes everyday life much more convenient. The Wi-Fi and OnStar make it much easier if you do lots of work from it or if you have children who like to watch TV while traveling. Only downside I have found is that I am not a fan of the automatic cylinder deactivation. Of course just like anything nowadays there are always ways to have that fixed later, which I am sure I will do when the warranty is up. It does make for better fuel mileage, however I do not like the fact that you can actually feel it change over in the middle of driving or acceleration. Otherwise, would definitely recommend..
