The perfect truck

by from Detroit on April 21, 2014

I recently bought a 2014 Silverado LT Double Cab with the following Options: 4x4 5.3L Ecotec3 V-8 Drop-in bedliner All-Star Package MSRP was 42,500 Out the Door price (after taxes, fees, etc) was 33,...
I recently bought a 2014 Silverado LT Double Cab with the following Options: 4x4 5.3L Ecotec3 V-8 Drop-in bedliner All-Star Package MSRP was 42,500 Out the Door price (after taxes, fees, etc) was 33,200. To start, I was initially considering buying an F-150, but once I drove the new Chevy, there really isnt a comparison. The ride quality is superb, I'm averaging 22 MPG with a 70/30 HWY/City driving split, and it looks better than even the new F-150 thats coming out this year. Yes my V-8 is down 12 HP and about 35 lb-ft of torque to the "Eco-boost", but I can still tow 9600 lbs, I can haul more in the bed of my truck, and get way better fuel economy in the real world. Once the turbos kick in for the Ford, its all boost and no eco. The handling on this truck is scary good. There is considerably less body roll than the Ram of F-150 and has less nose drove when under breaking. The Ram has a slightly better ride due to the coil rear suspension, but its not that much better....plus the leaf springs allow more towing and safer towing. If you are considering buying a new truck, I highly recommend taking a Silverado for a test drive.

Have owned this truck for three weeks so really am still learning what all it has and does. The truck is just under 20 feet long so the Garage is now full from front to back with about 3 inches to spare. I like the Info link with hands free Bluetooth to answer the phone or tune the radio, The XM radio and Onstar seem like they may be things I keep after the trial periods run out. I like the room in the rear seat area - the seats fold up easily and make lots of room for the dog or whatever else I want to transport. Also I can sit comfortably in the back and not touch the back of the front seat. I did not get the built in Navigation but in hindsight that might have been the only thing I would have changed. I drove the truck on a series of 50 mile trips on I 94 here in Michigan and could average just over 23 mpg for the 50 mile trips if I payed attention to the info and kept the speed between 60 and 65 - The truck is everything I hoped for and will comfortably take four guys to Canada for some fly in or drive in fishing. I like the ride very much and even though it is big - driving it is a pleasure - the rear camera takes some getting used to as I have to back it into the garage but that does make it a lot easier. It will also be great for hooking up my boat in the spring. My wife likes the balance tail gate and can open and close it with one hand. Overall very happy at this point and I guess at what these things cost I should be. I will have this truck for many years.

Craftsman's choice

As a craftsman, doing all kinds of on site repairs, I always have a high amount of tool boxes and ladders etc with me. It is therefor very important for me to be able to easily and safely load and offload my truck, especially in winter where I take all electrical tools back into the shop at night to keep them from freezing; the safe foot holds at the side of the back bumper and the corresponding hand grips have proven so incredibly valuable for quickly and safely reaching the bed, even after a hard day's work when you're less cautious than you should be and the danger of slipping and hurting yourself is higher. The cabin itself is incredibly quiet, and the seats as comfortable as they can be, which enables me to make all my calls in excellent quality while driving; this actually saves me a lot of time because if I didn't understand my customers properly or if I'd have bad call quality in the truck, I would have had to postpone all calls to later in the evening or to another time when I'd rather be actually working on a customer job, or doing something else. I had decided back then to buy the 4.3 liter V6 engine with 285 bhp, and I have never regretted my choice, I always have enough power, and my truck consumes 12.7L/100Km in the city in winter with a bed full of tool boxes and sheetrock, and 11.1L/100Km on the highway, which I regard as fully acceptable. So to make a long story short, I've had this truck for a year now, I depend on it every day for work, and so far it has been absolutely flawless. Good luck.

Haven't had a full size truck in a while (they were always about 4" too long to fit in my garage, so I had to settle for a smaller model, then lo-and-behold, here comes the 2014 Silverado deluxe cab which fits by a 1/2". The fuel economy is around 18-20 MPG varying on traffic issues. The seats are so comfortable and the ride is very quiet. So far I've put about 14K miles on it (bought it last year in October). I have no real complaints with this truck whatsoever. I highly recommend the Silverado to all My family and friends.

I purchased this excellent truck back in December 2013, and it has been great. I have around 5k on it now with no mechanical issues at all. I have the crewcab 4x4 LT with the 5.3L and it does the job very well. The only con with the Chevy is I would like them to have a little more ground clearance. I added a 3" leveling kit to it and that put the clearance perfect. I drove the Ford and Dodge but they did not have the feel of this truck. The only other truck even close would have been the 4x4 Tundra, but the price was to steep for me.

I purchased my 2014 Crew Cab 1500 Silverado LT 5.3 2WD in Glendora California on Dec. 26, 2014. Im glad I went with Chevy. Just the specifics in the exterior and interior design are sweet. The cab is so quiet you forget your even in a truck. I was going to get a Tundra but they didnt have what I was looking for. Believe me my heart was set on the Tundra. I dont use this truck for work like most people do in California. This truck is just for weekend use and pulling a toy hauler. Once again Im glad I went with the Silverado. I love my rado its awesome...
