As I was getting into my truck while it turned on and the door was open, the parking brake on the truck automatically set itself. I have had this happen before but never thought why it would do it. I was wondering if anyone knew the types of things the truck is looking for to decide to set the parking brake on its own? There were a few variables of course like the truck being turned on, on a slight incline, door open and shaking the truck. But this is not the first time I have entered the truck with the exact same scenario, just the first time it set the parking brake while doing so.
Noticed this on my AT4 as well. Doesn't bother me much since I usually drive around in silence (one of the only places I can get it). I set the radio volume to zero on start up and don't think about it much.
Touring, Sport and Tow Haul are really just differences in shift points. Touring is mostly for fuel economy and cruising. Sport is mostly about staying in the meat of the powerband. Tow haul optimizes your shift for towing and with be more aggressive with engine braking. Haven't used offroad mode yet but probably will this weekend. No noticeable difference in steering weight with my AT4 at least when changing between driving modes. No suspension changes with changing modes since the AT4 does not get the adaptive suspension that I believe is available on Denali's. Not sure which trim level you have since you have 2019 Denali AT4 in your "Drives" field since Denali and the AT4 are separate trim levels. I hope however what I provided helps with your question and I'm sure others will chime in if I missed something.
Just under 5k miles and a little over two months into ownership with my 5.3 / 8spd. No real complaints, the trans is pretty smooth. Not the smoothest transmission I have ever had in a vehicle but I cant really knock it for anything. Definitely got smoother after about 2100 miles.
I'm just curious if anyone here uses their new 2019 Silverado or Sierra driving for Uber or Lyft? I don't necessarily want to drive for Uber or Lyft myself but I wanted to see what my truck would fit into for their different services only to find that their sites say trucks are in the lower cost service. You would think that something like a Silverado High Country, Sierra AT4 or Denali would fit into a higher tier level than basic, considering the truck costs and luxury. Not going to lie, I would consider driving for them if my AT4 would be in a higher tier. But for it to be in something like Uber X around a college town, its not worth the risk to me. What are your thoughts or experiences?
It is not normal. You may want to speak to your dealer about maybe getting a sensor checked. Mine works great on the highway. Sometimes it is a little overly sensitive as there will be no vehicle present but will detect other objects thinking a vehicle is there.
Pretty sure most everyone here will say the AT4. But what I would say is get out there and test drive all of them. The other thing as well to consider is the TRD Pro does not have a true locking rear diff which can wear out over time more than a traditional locker. AT4 comes with an auto rear locker and the Raptor has an electronic locking rear diff. Being on this forum and also by my user name you already know which route I went, I also considered the those options along with the Ram Rebel, Power Wagon, Trailboss and even a ZR2.
I have seen a handful of new RST 's on the road and only one other AT4 ( black onyx ) in the past few weeks. Haven't seen a Trailboss on the road yet. Driving consistently around Chester County PA, Newark DE and Ceciltucky MD. Most around here go used diesel pre-emissions.
I'm a fan of Chemical Guys products and have had success with them in the past. I have recently run out of supplies which is what made me curious as to what everyone else is using for washing and detailing? Why do you like what you are using? Is anyone using hoseless car washing stuff like AMMO NYC? Favorite sealant/wax? Have you ceramic coated your truck?
