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.

I purchased this truck in October of '14. I currently have 43,000 miles on it. I have had one issue with the truck that needed to be repaired under warranty. The tailgate damper failed. No big deal. I average 20 mpg most of the time with mixed driving. I've seen as high as 26 when I really try to get the best mileage. I still look at the truck and cannot believe it is actually mine. So good looking. My one and only issue with the vehicle would be the tires. It came with Goodyear Wranglers which were getting very slippery by 40,000 miles. Lots of tread left but slippery. Replaced them with Michelin's and they're great. This truck is quiet and rides like a Caddy. It's powerful and dependable. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a truck.

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.

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 have about 800 miles on my new Silverado. So far only a software bug so my heated seats down turn on during remote start. It's quiet, solid, sits lower than the Ram & Ford. Engine is smooth. Gas mileage is TBD. So far, it looks to be meeting expectation. A bed cover should kick it up 1-2 MPG. Now my issue with this truck is it's a crew cab with rear head restraints that will not protect someone if you get rear ended. They don't extend up high enough for an adult or anyone taller than 5'3". I've petitioned with Chevy for a design change. They won't committ to doing something and seem to want me to shut up. Dealer now wants to try and modify them. My 2005 Sierra crew rear restraints went up quite a bit higher. Thought these would too! WRONG. If you need to transport adults in the rear seat and are concerned about safety, get the F150 or Ram. I spent my money and need to take on Goliath. In my previous submission I was more direct but cars.com didn't post it.

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.
