So far so good. Its not a Dodge or Ford

Best truck I've ever owned. Great power...good fule economy on highways. comfortable and roomy great bose sound system No over dramatic fanciness but practicality. I like the design and added features such as a sliding rear window power outlets inside and in the bed. 20k miles on her so...maybe too soon to tell?


CHEVROLET Silverado 4 cylinder turbo charged engin

Awesome Truck except for transmission troubles. Very good gas mileage and comfort and ride are the best. A very dependable truck with lots of great features. Back up camera is great.


Good basic pickup

Have had this since new in 2020. No major issues. Transmission is rough when cold, but not an issue. Three years in and no major work. One brake adjustment and oil changes. Other than that it’s been a great truck.


Dealer repaired in one day. Been good ever since.

had the truck for 30 k miles. Only one issue of a hydralic lifter failure @ 7k miles. They say its common with the multi displacement V8s. i would have rated it better if the engine problem did not happen. When you pay 50k Plus for a truck, you don't expect early failure of engine components.


Over all nice truck, auto stop and electric parkin

Electric parking brake sticks after vehicle sits. Seems like the right rear, when trucks sit 4 to 8hrs. Sometimes backing up releases or slowly moving forward. Transmission slips in low gear when engine is cold, or as it sits. Sometimes I think if the auto shut off is off it doesn't slip. Some times when truck down shift coasting to a stop. Auto shut of is to sensitive and jerk starts sometimes. AC fan does not seem to blow much until turn over halfway on.


My Last Truck...maybe

Transmission has problems. Started at 18K miles and getting worse. Probably be another fiasco. Standard transmissions should be "standard". GM is losing my favor....quickly! The End


Best truck owned.

I use my truck to pull a 9000 lb+ 34 ft travel trailer. I have the 3.0 diesel LT 4x4. I get 10 - 12 mpg towing. Once I get to the campsite it's like having an economy car that gets 25 - 30 mpg not towing. I don't ever plan on selling the truck, it is a keeper.


3.0 Duramax is awesome

I’ve had many silverados in my years, all 1/2 tons since ‘77. Enjoyed most of them. Can’t say much about the 700R4 transmission in the 90’s however. But this 2020 Silverado RST little max is the trophy of them all. It’s a fuel sipper with plenty of torque, which is awesome for towing. It averages 12 mpg towing and 30-34 mpg non towing. The 10 speed transmission performance is so smooth shifting, the performance of the little 3.0 is engineering at its best. I traded a 2016 Silverado Z71 5.3 for this truck. Wow, it puts that old ‘16 to shame. The truck is simply the best of the best in the 1/2 ton class. I have driven it 20k now and the only issue I’ve had was the my link freezing up several times in a couple weeks time frame. Took it to the dealer in Biloxie as I was on a road trip and they reflashed the system. Whatever that did, that was a couple months back and issue has not reappeared. It has all the bells and whistles with the first Bose system I’ve ever had in my 70 years. This is a phenomenal truck and I expect it will be my last. I can’t imagine parting with it. I never hesitated buying this truck after my initial test drive in Lubbock, Texas. I was not able to make a deal in my hometown here and was able to make a deal over the phone with a Chevrolet dealership in Farmersbranch, Texas. It’s sad another Chevrolet dealership 400 miles from my home can make a much greater deal than my local dealership. That’s free enterprise however and for what this truck cost, you have to shop your best deal. I feel like I got a great deal and absolutely no regrets. The all around ownership experience of this Silverado has exceeded my expectations. The best in its class


It's OK for the money

The 2020 Silerado is a pretty good truck for the dollar spent. It has a rough running engine which I was told was nomal for a 5.3 V8, don't understand why. Interior is ok but needs a few electonics added which should be standard. The bluetooth does not work as it should and Terry Labonte- Dealer after 7 month still can't fix it.


$46, 000 paperweight

3 times will not start, 1st time would crank but no start, the 2nd time nothing but lights all over the dash and bonging like crazy, towed into dealer shop for nearly 2 weeks guessing something electrical but I will likely never know what the true issue was. People purchase new vehicles in order to have something reliable with no repair worries but a $46K truck that won't even start is not much good to anyone. Think we'll find an old 80's model vehicle so we can work on it ourselves if something goes wrong, for the money we should be able to replace nearly every component and come out ahead, there's too much electrical/computer crap in these newer vehicles and they seem to rush everything to market without thorough testing. Personally would not recommend this vehicle to anyone. Chev Silverado LT Crew 4x4 5.3
