Bought that same grill, except with the lights. Big mistake. Was given directional brackets for the mounts and got same side brackets for both lights. Fast forward a few week’s and received more brackets that were universal. Still didn’t work. Needless to say, I wish I had bought the one without lights.
So I bought my 19 with the 2.7T LT 2WD this last October. I now have 17k miles. I average 19-20 mpg with my daily driving and Uber. I have taken road trips with just passenger payload and luggage and can get 22-24 depending on where I keep my speed. Not long ago, I hauled an 03 CTS on a Uhaul auto transport on the interstate. I still averaged 13-14 mpg going 60-70 mph. Plenty of torque to get the trailer moving and keep it going on the highway. Plenty of power to pass on the highway as well. I thought I had made a mistake going with the turno4, but now that I have put 17k miles on it, I couldn’t be happier. Sometimes I wish I did get the V8, but I remember the reasoning for buying the turbo4. Coming off a 2003 Ram 1500 4.7, this Silverado already outdoes my old truck. So it meets my needs. I don’t haul all the time nor do I off-road.
I bought my 19 Silverado in Oct 2019. I have 17,000 miles on it as I no longer ride my motorcycle. I didn’t realize just how much I was on the road until I didn’t use my Harley to go everywhere. Anyway, I am pretty happy with my truck. Combined driving, I’m seeing 19-20 mpg consistently as I tend to spend much time driving in the city. In the city is where the truck makes its money in fuel economy. A V8 couldn’t get the same fuel economy in the city. coming off my trusted 2003 Ram 1500, 4.7 that I had for 15 years, definitely an upgrade. This turbo 4 has more power and torque than my Ram. It blows the fuel economy doors wide open in comparison. I hauled a mid sized sedan on an auto transport with my 2.7 and managed 13-14 in the interstate going 60-70 mph. My Ram got that without a payload on the highway.
I plan on just painting mine with a vinyl/plasti-dip paint. It’s cheap and will allow me to see if I’d like how the blacked out chrome looks. Should be posting pics later today.
I bought my 2019 new back in October. I now have 16K miles on it. Didn’t know if I had made a mistake by not going with the 5.3. After the time I have spent with it, I have towed a 3400 lb car on a uhaul auto transport. Needless to say, the 2.7 was more than capable. I averaged 13-14 on a 3 hour trip driving 60-70 mph on tow/haul mode on the interstate. I can get 22 mpg @ 70-80 mph when driving without a payload. If I keep it at 60-65, I can push 24. City driving I can get 20-21 depending on traffic. Uber puts my truck though a mixture of hwy/cty/idling; when I Uber, I’ll get 17-19 due to longer idling periods. All in all, I don’t have any regrets. It meets my needs and I don’t have to pay the premiums for the V8 or a baby Duramax.
So, I’d like to play devil’s advocate. I have a 19 Silverado 2.7T with nothing more than a high flow stock air filter and premium motor oil (I’ll leave it at that as this discussion will spiral really quick. Lol) I see the dyno charts on the afe website. All the power gains seem to be at RPMs my vehicle will never spend time at (3500-4500). So how would I benefit from something like this? My previous truck had a CAI and exhaust, and I seemed to lose so much on the low end. I ended up going back to an OEM exhaust and gained my bottom end back. I care more about usable power than max power.
Just a question. Can the strut assemblies off a 19 4wd Silverado fit a 19 RWD? Pictures look the same. I understand they may just be taller. i tried the 2” level blocks up front, but causing rattling issues on gravel roads or roads with lots of little pot holes. I can hit a speed bump or dip with no noise. But those little variances on the road cause a rattle noise now. attached is a photo of the 4wd strut assemblies. Looks exactly like the RWD, but looks like a heftier spring.
I purchased a 19 Silverado LT with the 2.7 turbo 4. I had the same hesitating issue at coming to a stop with 4,000 miles on it. Took it to the dealer, they said it was a transmission sensor. Waiting on said sensor to come in for repair.
