  1. I have the GM Z-71 logo all weather floor mats in my crew cab. And they are way better than the Weathertech mats in my Corolla. They completely cover the carpet. They don’t slide around. And they are so easy to remove and clean.
  2. I don’t know if this feature is trim specific. But I do have an LTZ crew cab short box with the 6.2l. And I found the setting while learning the infotainment system and it’s settings. It’s in the vehicle settings.
  3. The Fisher ematch system doesn’t require a plow prep for any 1/2 ton trucks to install their new specifically designed ezv plow for 1/2 tons. It is recommended you add proper ballast in the bed.
  4. Check out the Fisher EZ-V 7.5 ft vplow. That’s the one I would put on my 1/2 ton.
  5. I just did the first oil change at 1000 miles on my 2020 Silverado 1500 LTZ Crew Cab 6.2l. I put Amsoil’s Signature Series 0W/20 along with an Amsoil oil filter. Even at my advanced age I don’t mind crawling under any of my vehicles to change the oil. At least I know what oil is going in and what kind of filters are being used. I got my salesman to throw in 2 cases of Amsoil gallon jugs. And 4 Amsoil oil filters as part of the deal.
  6. omg. I just discovered you can have the drivers or passenger side mirrors tilt down when you put the truck in reverse. Now that is cool. It saved me from from running over a .
  7. I’ve done this mini road trip twice in the first 1000 miles of ownership so far. And both times on after getting on the highway and plodding along at 65-70 the range was between 510-530 miles. With a full tank. But, I’ve also been driving it like a grandma going to church on a Sunday. Until about 200 miles ago. Now I’ve discovered that it’s an absolute blast to drive a gigantic truck with so much power!! Now my last tank average was 16.8. It’s just so intoxicating listening to this wonderful small block Chevy V-8 pull from idle up to 5k. And it’s as quiet as a library inside the ginormous cabin.
  8. At least the op got a Ford motor that doesn’t sound like a leaf blower
  9. Greetings from Maine. You didn’t say if you were getting a 2wd or 4wd Silverado? Anyways 6.2l L87 all day! I have had my 2020 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab short box LTZ Z-71 with 20 inch all terrain tires for 5 weeks now. It now has 1100 miles on the odometer. On 2 road trips to a friends property up the coast from me. It’s 220 miles round trip. 75% highway 25% driving the speed limit through lazy coastal towns. 30-50 mph speed limits. Some sections of both roads can be hilly at times. I averaged over 24 mpg on both trips. 65-70 on the highway. Speed limit through the small lazy coastal towns. I also never drove it like I stole it. Until about 2 days ago. I’m now averaging 16 mpg combined on the current tank of 93 octane. I never knew combining a ginormous pickup truck with an absolutely awesome motor would create a truck that is an absolute blast to drive. This thing just coasts down the highway effortlessly. Plus. Premium fuel is cheap right now. It’s obvious I’m a 6.2l fan. But. Good luck in your decision. It’s your truck. Get it the way you want it and enjoy.
  10. I’m coming from a little Toyota Corolla (which I’m passing on to my teenage son) and this is my first truck in over 20 years. I love the looks of my LTZ Crew Cab short box 6.2l in satin steel metallic. After that the list keeps growing. But the op only asked for 1 reason. I have many more.
  11. My second round of cool discoveries. Ok after a month of ownership. I have tried the sport mode in my 6.2 Crew Cab short box and wow! What a difference from normal mode. The throttle response is more crisp. The power folding mirrors are so convenient when squeezing into the atm or bank teller lanes. The SiriusXM radio is cooler than the other side of the pillow. And the interior is so quiet cruising down the highway at 70mph you could hear an fart.
  12. It’s expensive. Buts it’s arguably the best oil filter for your truck Amsoil EA017.
  13. Chevy Chat is hit or miss. You may get lucky and the chat person you get connected with will know how to get the information you are requesting. Or you could end up chatting with someone who just got hired that doesn’t know the difference between a Corvette and a Silverado. Good luck .
  14. Same here. I was bored and I saw this post. And nobody has contacted me either. It’s been 5 days.
