Pros: Front end look
Cons: side fenders don't match and back end sit up too high
Advice: check out the GMC Sierra - overall body style looks better to megreat riding truck - pulls my 5000lb travel trailor easily.
Pros: Seat Comfort
Cons: Turn Radius
Advice: Don't be brand blind. Look at all brands. I've always had Fords and I bought a Chevy.The truck is OK...It rides and drives nice. Gas milage is not good. I have 10500 miles and the best I have gotten is 18.0 (4X4). Ths sticker says 20 HWY. In town driving is 13.5 mpg. The turn radius is awful!!! Parking in a standard parking place is near impossible. I have to back in most places. I did not have this problem with a Ford. The LT Trim package is OK at best. They still need to dress up the truck at a reasonable price level. I would not by the same truck again, unless then put a diesel in the 1500.
Pros: The looks
Cons: Everything else
Advice: Do not purchase this product at all.I bought this truck. And its the worst vehicle I ever owned. Its built VERY cheep and with a low budget. It only has 2,200 miles and it already has squeeks and raddles. Rides rough, (along with the really bad gass mileage and the unwanted noises)I rate this vehicle an D- at the very best!!!
Pros: LT1 features in the cab. A lot for the money.
Cons: Needs more legroom in the rear and cupholders in the rear doors.
Advice: Get one !!!Picked mine up last week. What sold me was how quiet the truck was inside at highway speeds. Very quiet. In addition, the 4.8L V-8 has plenty of power for the work I do. Also, the truck really handles rough terrain very well even though mine is 2WD. Chevrolet definitely got it right.
