  1. 4cyl Silverado?

    Turbo 4-cylinder I could handle. Turbo 4-cylinder with direct injection would leave me worried. Turbo 4-cylinder with direct injection and cylinder deactivation? I don't think I could justify buying into that nightmare.
  2. 4cyl Silverado?

    Fair point, but I have the exact same concerns for the direct-injected cylinder deactivation V8s most of us are driving around now.

  4. New GMC Un-Camoed Spy Shots

    It's so low...
  5. FWIW I have the 8-speed in my 2018 and have had no issues. I think it drives noticeably better than the six speed in my 2014 and in a 2017 that I drove for a period.
  6. 4.3 V6 gone in 2019?

    mo·tor ˈmōdər/ noun 1. a machine, especially one powered by electricity or internal combustion, that supplies motive power for a vehicle or for some other device with moving parts.
  7. Looks pretty evenly divided... Probably an ideal situation for GM! Guess that means they finally did a good job differentiating the two models.
  8. I've always been on the GMC side, but for this round the Silverado wins it. The SIM card wheel wells on the Sierra really bother me.
  9. New Sierra Revealed

    I'm surprised to say that I actually don't like it very much. Definitely don't like the wheel wells.
  10. 2019 Dimensions

    I think it's the other way around. Increased wheelbase 1.5" to get 4" more interior room. I haven't seen or heard anything re: the overall exterior dimensions.
  11. Cooled Bench Seats?

    Another interesting catch. I use that setting a lot in the winter.
  12. Dynamic Fuel Management

    So an EcoTec 3 is more reliable than a Vortec because it's more complicated..? Is it so hard to imagine that reliability was intentionally sacrificed for the sake of fuel efficiency?
  13. Cooled Bench Seats?

    Did they really bring back blank switches after making such a big deal of not having them on the current gen?
  14. Yeah I'd call it normal. Axle/diff could use a little touch up but the exhaust manifold and machined portions of the brake calipers and mounts are uncoated cast iron and should be expected to oxidize. Mine is the same, and so were my last two.
