I’d written about a Chevrolet Silverado towing event I attended a while back and I thought the Chevy Silverado was pretty damn cool back then. After having the vehicle for a week I can tell you, it’s even more amazing than I remember.
I had a fire engine red 4WD LT DBL with a jet black interior. (In case you’re wondering; the LT stands for Luxury Touring.) The biggest thing I forgot was how big the Silverado actually is.
Driving the Silverado is much like driving a tank that handles like a sedan. Yes that’s right; the Silverado handles like a car. To the point that I sometimes forgot that I was in a full sized truck.
The ride. The ride is so smooth. Rolling over bumps and rough urban terrain is a breeze for this vehicle. The suspension is like riding in an old school Buick.
The keyless entry and push to start features of course make things a bit easier. I am a particular fan of the tailgate being dropped from within the cab by pushing a single button.
Of course as can be expected there is the backup camera, wi-fi capable, a large screen for accessing the variety of apps. To connect your phone to the vehicle you can do so through bluetooth; or through ApplePlay or Android Auto.
When you’re in the cab of the truck it almost feels like you’re sitting in lounge chairs, which can be both a good or bad thing depending on how tired you are when you’re driving.
Chevrolet has spared no expense creating a comfortable cab experience for long haul trips. Even making it easier to hitch up to your boat or trailer by using their monitor during your back up to direct you right to your hitch.
The only thing that made me kind of scratch my head were the back seats. They are set upright with no immediately discernible method of reclining them at all. This may prove to be problematic if you’ve got adult passengers during long drives.
Beside that though this truck is rock solid.
The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado ranks highly in the full-size pickup truck class. It features powerful engine choices and well-balanced handling, but a so-so interior keeps it from the top of the class.
Pros & Cons
Best-in-class towing capacity
Top-notch fuel economy
Balanced ride and handling
Ample passenger room
Mixed interior quality
Make no mistake the fullsize Silverado 4WD LT is going to set you back a bit of cash with an MSRP for the fully loaded model I had of $49,365.00. But from what I experienced it’s worth every single penny.
