  1. I completely understand that some of you feel that you enjoy the "classic" feel of the GM, but I still struggle with much of it. How can they charge the same for a truck that is so tech behind their competitors? I LOVE the look of my Silverado, just hate getting inside it and feeling like I stepped back 10 years compared to my brother Dodge. Its 2021 and I STILL have to plug my phone in to get text messaging? REALLY? Many use these trucks as work vehicles and can't be pulling over every 5 mins to read a text, and its illegal to have a hand held device here. My wife's GM SUV has more optio
  2. Just my opinion that GM really needs to step their game up a bit. I have been a lifetime GM owner, have bought 5 new ones in the last 2 years, and currently own 3. I have a 2020 High Country 1500 with 6.2, and I just bought my wife a 2021 Traverse. While I do enjoy both vehicles, I REALLY think GM dropped the ball on a few things. 1. My Traverse has better options than my High Country has, despite being $20,000 less to buy 2. My truck has a VERY "dated" interior. Lacks many things my brothers Dodge Ram has, and looks 10 years older inside. 3. How is it even possible th
  3. Sorry, that was a misprint by me. My first truck was a 2019 5.3 with 8 speed. My second truck was a 2020 5.3 with 10 speed, and now I have a 6.2 with 10 speed. I enjoyed all of the trucks, but had very hard shifting on the 8 speed. I did really like the 5.3 10 speed a lot, until I got the 6.2. I noticed the difference in power even just leaving the dealership. The truck took a week to come in and I actually never really thought about the 6.2 and when was pulling out of the dealership, I noticed the difference. Sure you don't need the extra power, and no I don't race it "light to
  4. Enormously better 1. My 6.2 with 10 speed shifts so smooth I can barely feel it. My 5.3 8 speed felt like I was getting rear ended many times it would shift gears. I think its enormously better to drive a truck that shifts well 2. My 6.2 has a ton more power. I think its enormously better with more power 3. My 6.2 feels simply more "fun" to drive. I think its enormously better when you spend this kind of money that you enjoy what you are driving. 4. I'm "old school" and still believe in the saying "there is no replacement for displacement". I don't use 93 oct
  5. I have now owned 3 of these trucks and want to chime in. I had a 2019 Silverado with 5.3 8 speed, a 2020 Silverado with 5.3 8 speed, and now have a 20 Silverado with 6.2 10 speed. My good friend has a 20 with the 3.0 and I drive it all the time. Without any doubt at all, I LOVE the 6.2 10 speed the most. I have never ever put premium in it (ever), and it is still enormously better then the 5.3 and I am getting almost the same fuel economy out of it when not pushing the petal hard. The 3.0 is great to drive, and I like "borrowing it", but when you drive it everyday, its simply just
  6. lol, not exactly sure how this post turned into a "performance comparison" thread, and I agree that all manufacturers have their issues. I'm just VERY surprised that in 2020 GM still makes people plug their phones in with a wire in order to get text messages. Nobody even knows why they offered in in 2019 but then went away from it. I didn't buy my truck to race Rams. I've had many Rams and many Fords, and I buy my trucks to be trucks. I have cars for performance if I need that. Like my original post stated, I LOVE my Chevy, I just think they need to update these more and step up
  7. Hey everyone. I just wanted to say one things about these trucks. I get a new one every year and have already had a 2019 RST, a full loaded 2020 RST and now have a 2020 High Country. I cannot get past what I feel is GM's major software flaws and don't think I will be buying another. Here are the 3 things I feel do not make any sense and could be VERY easy fixes if they wanted to: 1. Radio cannot receive or respond to text messages (it would on my 2019 but none after). We are in 2020 and hand's free operation is a MUST now because of all the new laws for distracted driving. I am in
  8. My wife just hit a deer with her 2019 F150 and it has $6000 damage to front end. They told her that Ford is backed on parts and it will be 5 weeks until they arrive. All the manufacturers have these problems at times. Sucks, I know, but it isn't GM specific.
  9. LOL, I assure you I know how to tow a trailer. I have my Class "AFMZ" drivers license and have driven transport trucks for 18 years, and now drive aerial Fire Trucks. I'm 44 yrs old and have likely driven more kms with a trailer behind me then most have a car. That being said, I should have known how much this trailer weighed. The man I bought it from that day told me it was around 7-8000lbs and I knew that my truck could tow far more then that. I've known how to set trailer brake gain since I started driving 26 years ago. lol
  10. I have 12.50 tires on my 2019 and 2020 truck and did not need any spacers. They will work.
  11. I just confirmed that the trailer weighs 6700 lbs and my truck is a 2020 RST 4 door with 5.3 and lifted 6" with 35" tires on it. My truck didn't have any problems at all pulling it, it just squatted down far too much and I am looking to make it sit more level. I did not even know weight leveling hitches were available. I will certainly buy a good one if I can find where to get them.
  12. Hello everyone. I have a 2020 RST 1500 and the other day I had to pull home my camper trailer. I was told it weighs about 8000 lbs and to be honest I don't even now how much weight these trucks can pull, but I did notice the back end of my truck squat right down. I am hoping I can buy something to help keep it level so that in the summer I am not driving it around like that. In the past I have seen guys install air bags in rear suspension, but I have a 6" lift on my truck and do not know if that is an option after a lift. Can anyone point me in a direction to help remedy this?? Th
  13. My 8 speed shifts like silk and is the smoothest transmission I've ever driven.
  14. That is strange because my 2019 had the exact same digital instrument cluster that my 2020 does, but my 2019 only had tow and sport mode, and now my 2020 has the added off road one. My 2 clusters are identical
  15. Sorry guys, I was at work. I only traded in my 19 because my friend works for GM and they offered me direct swap (I didnt pay a penny to change). I LOVED my 19 but why not get a 20 with zero kms on it and get rid of my 19 that had 20,000 kms on it. I still do have 2 speed transfer case and the seats feel the same to me, other than this one has leather. There were only small changes, but I liked all of them other then the two rear doors not having the unlock. I would have kept my 19 in a second and loved ever bit of it. I never had a single problem and it was built in feb of 2019. These are
