An awesome feature I discovered on accident is the security. If your trailer is hooked up and you park and lock your truck the trailer lights will flicker about every 10 seconds. The truck continually sends a signal to ensure the trailer is there. If someone disconnects the electrical hook Up the trucks alarm goes off.
My 8 speed in my 2018 Sierra was total garbage. After numerous attempts by dealer to resolve all the issues even they gave up and started with the “can’t replicate it” and “that is normal” BS. I finally threw in the towel and got a 2020 with the 10 speed. Best move I ever made, it is a dream! Smooth quick shifts no clunking, jerking, slipping torque converter. Getting rid of the 8 speed transmission is long over due by GM if you ask me.
Had a 2014 Silverado LTZ that was a great truck with absolutely zero issues. Traded for a 2018 Sierra SLT Z-71 that was a complete POS vibration issues and the dreaded 8 speed issues. So I rolled the dice and jumped on this 2020 AT-4 with the 6.2 and the 10 speed so far I am loving it. Keeping my fingers crossed that it holds up. I sure love the way it looks.

My 2014 had a spot that did the exact same thing! Unfortunately it was in the drivers side footwell right where I had to bear down with my foot in order to reposition on long drives. Drove me absolutely nuts. Thankfully my 18 seems solid so far!
My wife has a 2017 Honda Pilot my twins have a 2017 Honda Accord and my oldest daughter has a 2017 Honda CR-V. All have the lane keep feature and it works amazingly! Their cars will literally drive themselves between lane keep and the adaptive cruise control. They will maintain distance slowing and accelerating when needed and diligently stay in their lane. No wondering or crossing the lines not even on turns on the highway. The lane keep in my 2018 Sierra is a joke compared the the Honda’s.
LMAO! don’t worry I won’t race any slow trucks with my slower truck. You win! You and your truck are clearly superior to my broke 5.3 driving self. Have a great day guy. I have more important things to do. To the OP I would drive both as I did, only you can decide what will float your boat. I am sorry that I was involved in letting this thread go sideways. Good luck in your choice, I look forward to seeing pictures once you have decided.
My 5.3 4x4 8 speed 3:42 pulls my 5500# boat like a dream. When going fishing I have the boat fully fueled, all my gear plus a friend or two I am north of 6000#’s. Usually tow anywhere from 1.5 hours to 4 hours away all interstate and the truck performs exceptionally well. Can’t go wrong either way both great motors.
My 2014 5.3 was a dog too. Hence the reason I originally planned on getting a 6.2. However after driving the 2018 5.3 with 3:42 gears I felt little difference to the 6.2 I had literally just stepped out of. And with that rear end and the 8 speed transmission it certainly feels way more alive than my 2014 did. I am glad you love your 6.2 I only hear great things about them. I however love my 5.3. I am sure there is no doubt 6.2 is a little faster. But acting like you are driving a Bugatti Veyron compared to my 5.3 is laughable. My Grand National, and one of the many Mustangs I had we’re running high 10’s in the 1/4 mile, so the negligible difference between two slow ass trucks was not enough to excite me.
I made sure it had the 6.2, not to mention the Ultimate package only comes with 6.2. Not a huge difference at all. A little bit of a difference yes. But huge? No. I have had plenty of sports and muscle cars and trucks. Several Mustangs (some highly modified) Grand Cherokee SRT8, BMW M3, Buick Grand National highly modded over 600hp, E55 AMG Mercedes ect. All cars I have had in my 45 years. I am completely familiar with performance vehicles. Like I said, FOR ME (having owned several performance vehicles) it was not a big enough of a performance gain to justify the costs. If the little bit of extra coin does not matter to you and you want a little more performance by all means go for it. I can only speak for myself. My suggestion is do as I did, drive them back to back.
