I just came from an F-150 with the 5.4L. Same deal with it also. Put your foot in it fairly often and the PCM would "relearn" when to put the power to it. I'm finding this 5.3 puts out good power across the whole range, somewhat better than the Ford. As far as the 4.3 V6, I had a 1999 Sierra (not Gen V of course) that ran really well but always seemed to be missing a little grunt when you got in a hurry.

Hello, new member here. Just got a new to me 2015 Silverado 1500 4WD Regular cab Black out edition. It has the 5.3l, 6 speed automatic, and a 3.42 locking rear diff. It also has the tow package and rear view camera. Traded in a 2007 F-150 XLT extended cab with a bunch of options I didn't use. Had it 8 years and it started to get real expensive to maintain. Had a 1999 GMC Sierra before that. Again too many bells and whistles. Finally slapped myself straight and figured out what I really need and want. This WT fills the bill and didn't cost an arm and a leg. The 5.3 and 6 speed is a good combination and runs really well. Quite happy with my choice.
