I was looking at getting either the Borla Exhaust or the GM Performance exhaust for 2020 Silverado TB with the 6.2 https://accessories.chevrolet.com/product/performance/62l-rear-exit-through-the-bumper-exhaust-upgrade-system-with-quad-black-chrome-tips-by-borla-associated-accessories-19419438?year=2020&make=Chevrolet&model=Silverado 1500&modelId=491&body=Crew Cab Pickup&bodyId=22&wheel=Standard Box&wheelId=652&trim=LT Trail Boss&trimId=5101&drive=4WD&driveId=8&engine=6.2L V8 GAS&engineId=5920&bodyNumDoors=5&categoryId=12009 https://accessories.chevrolet.com/product/62l-short-wheel-base-cat-back-dual-exit-exhaust-system-upgrade-84527234?year=2020&make=Chevrolet&model=Silverado 1500&modelId=491&body=Crew Cab Pickup&bodyId=22&wheel=Standard Box&wheelId=652&trim=LT Trail Boss&trimId=5101&drive=4WD&driveId=8&engine=6.2L V8 GAS&engineId=5920&bodyNumDoors=5 I have heard audio clips of the GM exhaust on youtube and it seems to give the sound that I am looking for (more noise when I want it but not obnoxious) and a claimed 13 HP. For the Borla exhaust which model is the one that GM sells (touring, S or atak)? I have emailed borla support but haven't gotten a reply yet. Also does anyone know the claimed performance numbers for the borla exhaust? I was also planning on adding the CAI from GM as well.
Where are you located? I did an inventory search from chevrolet.com, used a Dallas Texas zip code with 2000 mile radius (should cover all of the US). My search criteria was CC, LT TB, 6.2 and Cajun Red. In transit according to chevrolet.com: Bale Chevrolet Little Rock Arkansas https://www.balechevrolet.com/VehicleDetails/new-2020-Chevrolet-Silverado_1500-Crew_Cab_Short_Box_4_Wheel_Drive_LT_Trail_Boss-Little_Rock-AR/4264431573 Wagner Chevrolet McCook Nebraska https://www.drivewagner.net/VehicleDetails/new-2020-Chevrolet-Silverado_1500-Crew_Cab_Short_Box_4_Wheel_Drive_LT_Trail_Boss-McCook-NE/3603098093 Sid Dillon Chevrolet Blair Nebraska https://www.siddillon.net/VehicleDetails/new-2020-Chevrolet-Silverado_1500-Crew_Cab_Short_Box_4_Wheel_Drive_LT_Trail_Boss-Blair-NE/4214258283 Bachman Auto Group Louisville Kentucky. chevrolet.com lists one for this dealership but I don't see it on their site. look up chevy dude on youtube.

Jerome Idaho. Chevrolet.com shows 1 but their website does not. So there is a few out there.
I don't notice anything abnormal with my 6.2. Can you post an audio clip?
So if I have the AC on the auto stop doesn't work which I would expect. I also noticed that if I just have the defrost on that auto stop does not work. I attached a picture with the defrost circled. Even with the AC turned off. I know that some vehicles will turn the AC on when the defroster is on so I am guessing that this is the case here.
for what it is worth my best 25 mpg is 23.8, best 50 is 21 and my best 400 is 16.7. I have 3500 miles on the truck. The best 25 and 50 were both on a recent trip that was mostly country roads with speed limit of 55. Mix of flat and hills. Pretty good IMO with the trailboss (2in lift, duratracs and no front chin spoiler). I haven't gotten enough miles to get a good 400 mile trip that didn't have a lot of idling and stop and go. We went from winter to 90 degrees last week and with C19 I haven't been going anywhere for the previous 10 weeks (work commute is 2 miles).
I would think you could even do better than those numbers. 8 or 10 speed. I drove 230 miles of a mix highway at 75-80, regular roads and dirt roads with a little stop and go. Averaged 18. I have the 6.2 in a trail boss.
I would get the 20. 10 speed. Chevy also "reworked/tuned" the suspension on the 20 model year. Maybe less chance of rear window leak on the 20. I have the sunroof on mine and most of the time I have it closed and the shade as the sun shines right in my face/eyes. The only reason I got the sunroof is because it was included (at the time I bought my truck was the only one in Maine with the options I wanted and the 6.2). the 20 will have a higher value, hasn't been titled, etc. etc.. You might think you have gotten the 20 for the best price but I bet these is still another 500-1000 especially if they still have it late next week.
I have never used/tried auto in my truck. I just turn the temp to where I want it adjust the fan to my liking. I have never had a truck use auto in a manner that made sense with the fan speed and temp control. 09 Chevy, 13 Tundra, 16 Ram. I can't remember if my 03 chevy had auto or not....
I did go from a Ram Rebel (2016 w/ 5.7) to a 2020 TB with 6.2 and 10sp. Big improvement in that setup with power, shifting and slightly better mpg. Some of the other features are behind Ram but I am happy with my choice.
In addition to all the great helpful info provided I would also take into account your future resale/trade value. While you should get the truck you want, that you need and can afford if there are trim levels/options (especially in your area) that help drive resale/trade value make sure that you take that into consideration. For example my father in law has a 2014 silverado with the 4.3. The resale or trade value will take a hit when we have to sell it someday. The dealership couldn't sell it and told him that it would be enough power for him....He could have had a 5.3 for not much more money (if not the same).....
