Almost perfect truck
August 18, 2018
I bought my 2017 SIlverado as a certified pre-owned truck about a month ago. While doing my research, I read reviews on all of the current full-size trucks, and found just about universal praise for the Silverado. Went for a test drive, and fell in love with it. Not only is it a great truck, but it's a fantastic vehicle overall. I love the exterior styling - it's modern and aggressive, without being too much of either. I got the double cab/standard bed, and am happy with that configuration - the bed length is perfect. The truck maneuvers insanely well for as big as it is, with good steering feel and a slightly stiff but comfortable ride. Interior design is gorgeous, and the controls are all laid out intuitively and within comfortable driver reach. Materials are fantastic, as is build quality....I have yet to hear even one rattle or find any panel that doesn't line up with the one next to it. Engine power is strong when you get on it, but the throttle response off the line could be improved. I average 17-22mpg, which is above expectations for a big 4x4 truck. I haven't towed anything super heavy with it yet, but have complete confidence that I'll be able to pull most anything I need to without it breaking a sweat. If you're in the market for a truck, new or used, the Silverado deserves a hard look for sure. As long as the reliability stays high, Chevy may have just earned a customer for life.
