Pros: The front end and it's size.
Advice: You definitely have to drive it realize it's full potential.When I drove it I had a hard time reminding myself I was in a truck. It has a very smooth ride, better handling than one would expect.
Pros: Quiet when on the road
Cons: aluminum cylinder heads - hope they are not bad like Ford
Advice: Get underneath and compare to Ford, DodgeNice stiff frame; car-like ride with good handling on highway; great gas mileage (18 in the city - 19 on the freeway; plenty of nice features - as good and comfortable as any car plus it is sturdy - pulls 5,000 LB boat fine - plenty of reserve power with 350 engine and a/t Tailpipe is clean as a whistle!
Pros: Smooth Ride, Powerful Engine, comfortable large interior
Advice: Drive it and you will love it!I had always liked the appearance of the Silverado, but when I drove it I was instantly sold, and I bought one.
Pros: CAPTAIN CHAIRS/COMFORT
Advice: VERY IMPORTANT TO GO TO A GOOD DEALERSHIP. 3-WAY CHEVROLET IN THE AUTOMALL WAS OUTSTANDING WITH HANDLEING MY NEEDS AND CONCERNS. CHEERS TO THE BEST VEHICLE BUYING EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER RECEIVED.I TEST DROVE THE 5.3 AND IT WAS SO POWERFUL, I WAS PEELING OUT WITHOUT TRYING. AWESOME RIDE..
Pros: Heated seats
Cons: Takes a while to warm up to ideal performance
Advice: test drive it in snow and on icy roadsRides high and tough. Appearance is great, but performance was not ideal in the snow. We have a place in the mountains and I drive up each weekend.
Pros: Ergonomic comfort or the 5.3 engine
Advice: Get the features you want.I Love my bowtie, leather adj. seats, power everthing and what power. The 5.3 is awesome, the ride is more sportscar than truck even with heavy suspention. Caverness interior, rich sound system, more do-dads than I need but I have been spoiled by the heated seats this winter and I don't even like trucks.. or I didn't. I do enough stuff to need one and so far I'm glad i got this one. Wher's yours?
Cons: Still just a little too much plastic for me.
Advice: GO FOR IT !!!!I've bought/owned Chevrolet trucks & cars for the past 30+ years and GM is getting better at it. This truck is AWESOME. I bought the fully loaded LT model and 5.3 engine is the best yet. Comfort of leather seating is wonderful. So far everything is working perfectly and is nothing but a joy to drive.
