  1. It's never too early to start talking about the process of shopping around for a dealer, pricing, the ordering process, deposits, and production delivery times. Although we're still months away from orders being accepted, this thread is meant to be a place where everyone can check in and share their experiences as they go through the process. I'm also going to document as many important dates in this initial post as I can. I'll attempt to keep everyone up to date on start of production, any ordering limitations, and when the ordering system will go live. NEW UPDATES AS OF: April 25th, 2018 T1XX- 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and 2019 GMC Sierra - Important Ordering / Production Dates Pre-Production: NOW - Captured Test Fleet Production Confirmed as of March 31st. Fleet Order Entry Avaliable On Crew Cab: 4/26/18 Double Cab: 6/21/18 Regular Cab: TBD Retail Initial Consensus Month Crew Cab: May 1st Double Cab: August 1st Regular Cab: TBD Initial Dealer Order Submission Process (DOSP) Crew Cab: 5/17/18 Double Cab: 8/16/18 Regular Cab: TBD Production Start Up For Dealer Delivery Crew Cab: Quarter 3 - July/August/September Double Cab: Quarter 4 - October November December Regular Cab: TBD 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Start Up Schedule 2019 GMC Sierra Start Up Schedule This post will be updated whenever new information becomes available. Please contact me if you can help clarify any of these dates.
  2. I ran across this for you Colorado fans. I did not dive into the configurations, but as the title suggests you can run a Colorado up over 50k This is NUTS for a " Mid-Sized " Truck. You can get a discounted Full size Silverado for less than this. Yes its a bigger truck but it is insane that smaller trucks are pushing 50k. Then again, it is NUTS that full size trucks are hitting the 70k mark (2019 High Country and Denali). Anyway, Enjoy! https://www.tfltruck.com/2018/09/2019-chevy-colorado-here-is-how-you-can-configure-it-to-over-50000-configurator/
  3. Update on 2019 build out and 2020 start up truck production. EDIT: My next post has the links to the 2020 HD order guides. 2019 - 2019 HD Regular Cab: Last production date 4/25/2019. Last order date 11/15/2018. 2019 HD Double Cab: Last production date 12/6/2019. Last order date 9/19/2019. 2019 HD Crew Cab: Last production date 5/10/2019. Last order date 2/28/2019. 2020 - 2020 HD Regular Cab: Initial dealer consensus 7/2/2019. Initial dealer order date 8/1/2019. Start of production September (date TBD). 2020 HD Double Cab: Initial dealer consensus 6/1/2019. Initial dealer order date 6/13/2019. Start of production August (date TBD). 2020 HD Crew Cab: Initial dealer consensus 3/2/2019. Initial dealer order date 3/28/2019. Start of production June (date TBD). So. Those wanting a K2 HD, the only one you can still place an order for is the Double Cab. Those wanting to order a 2020 T1 HD, the end of March is your first chance to order a crew cab.
  4. Anyone know how difficult it would be to upgrade the rear view mirror? My trail boss came with a "dumb" mirror. No auto dim, no compass, no onstar, no temp read out, nothing. I'd like to at least have auto dimming, compass, and temp read out. Rear view mirror camera would nice too. Is there any chance that the wiring is already there for it and I just need to simply replace the mirror and plug it in? I've seen a lot of aftermarket options and some of them look pretty neat, but for the most part they attach to the existing mirror and I'd like to find something that is as close as possible to stock looking. Thanks!
  5. I would like to change the regular bulbs in my Front turn signals on my RST to LEDs. Does anyone know what bulbs these are (they are marked 855)? Any recommendations on LED's that won't require resistors?
  6. Has anyone done this yet? I know in the T1 section there's a couple threads on mounting K2 wheels on the T1 trucks, and the calipers being wider and the need for a minor spacer in the fronts. With that, going backwards, there should be plenty of clearance. Any pics? I can find K2 wheels on GMT900 and older trucks for days. I was looking at either an 18" RST set, or the 18" accessory wheel that looks like the Colorado ZR2's wheel. At this point, I'd even look at a picture of 20"s as well.
  7. Now that owners are taking delivery of the new 2019 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, I thought a quick reference guide to common routine maintenance items would be beneficial to us all.

  8. 2019 Blazer - HOT OR NOT

    So, what do you think of the newly announced Blazer? Good choice for the legendary name? Bad use of badge you once loved? Let us know.
  9. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 9/17/18 What's new with GM-Trucks.com's new project 2019 Silverado? Well, it SHIPPED. As I type, our truck is chugging along the Midwest United States via train. It's en route to a CXS Rail Yard in Selkirk, New York just barely south of Albany. Best yet, it's scheduled to arrive in two days (This Wednesday). Selkirk is only a brisk 3.5 hour drive from our dealer, so once it arrives at the yard delivery could be only a few days away. Our dealer gives the chances of us taking delivery next week as pretty high, but as we've learned, who knows what delays may happen. What happened to our truck that delayed it at the factory for over a month after production? It sounds like the windshield was replaced. We were offered an interview with Chief Engineer Tim Asoksis but that never materialized. Eventually we were given a statement from Tim that read in part: Hopefully our next update in this saga is that we're on our way to the dealership. Wish us and our truck luck.
  10. Anyone else noticing a strong burn-off chemical like smell from the exhaust every time you drive? It was quite strong the first few engine cycles and has gotten considerably better at 175 miles but is still noticeable when we get out of the truck.
  11. Alright everyone... now that we've seen what the all new Sierra will look like, I think it's time for a good ol fashion'd vote down. Which truck do you like best? Which one would you buy? Which design do you like better? There can be only one! Place your vote now. VERSUS and of course, this is all just for good fun.
  12. Just found this and thought I would share. https://www.scaperformance.com/chevy-black-widow

  15. Thom Cannell Contributor, GM-Trucks.com February 5th, 2019 2019 - Last North American International Auto Show - as we've known it. Filled with sprawling displays of gleaming sheet metal and enough spotlights to illuminate the International Space Station, this was the final chilly, Detroit Auto Show in January. 2019 lacked the European media-hustle excitement, which left extra space for other exhibitors. Next year the Grand Experiment begins, moving show dates to June and using the Cobo Center rooftop and multiple venues spread throughout downtown Detroit to showcase the best in cars, trucks, crossovers, SUVs, SAVs, mobility pods and platforms. 2020 will be interesting, to say the least. We've done the General Motors story, this is the rest of the best. Ford kicked off the show, bringing their all-new 2020 Explorer to an early debut at Ford Field. Hmm, plenty of space under the dome! At Cobo Center, there were the new Explorer, new Mustang GT500, infused with a supercharged V-8 making over 700 horsepower with a 0-60 time a tick over three seconds, and the latest Ford F-150 Raptor, all brightly colored for maximum exposure. Interestingly, even on limited-attendance media days the Ford layout felt cramped. The 2020 Explorer will use EcoBoost turbo power, either a 2.3L base engine or more powerful 3.0L depending on your needs and your credit union's scorecard. It's a rear-wheel drive platform, with AWD available. To me there's not a substantial change anywhere except the front-end, which is more like Fusion or Focus, which is not a bad thing. FCA's RAM division challenged its cross-town rivals with an all-new RAM Heavy Duty 2500 and RAM Heavy Duty 3500 which the brand says, "Out-powers, out-tows and out-hauls every other pickup available." Why? It's thanks to an update Cummins 6.7-liter high output turbo-diesel that breaks the 1,000 lb.-ft. torque barrier for standard pickups. If you want all of those torques, you'll have to order a two-wheel drive model equipped with proper equipment. Then your Ram will be rated to tow 35,100 pounds and deliver a 7,680-pound payload. Ram's media briefing was all about axles, transfer cases, suspension, brakes and transmissions, AKA gear-head heaven and real news. GAC, will likely the first Chinese automaker to deliver cars to the USA, and have multiple dealerships (we discount supercars and tiny e-cars.) They brought a non-concept concept called ENTRANZE. It seats 3+2+2 in a pod-like configuration. Of course the vehicle is electric, and a version of this shape/size/configuration will be released by GAC later in 2019 for the Chinese market. GAC will soon open a North American headquarters in California. They also displayed a full lineup of sedans and small-and-larger crossovers; these guys are for real, even if we don’t find most of their current lineup visually appealing. Ford and VW held a teleconference announcing a partnership to collaborate on a products and technologies. Likely, VW wants to take advantage of Ford's truck expertise while Ford could rapidly benefit from Volkswagen's advanced electric platforms and autonomous vehicle research. How this shakes out is yet unknown and details are conspicuously-but not unexpectedly-absent. The handsome Lincoln Continental 80th Anniversary Coach Door Edition, designed to remind us of Lincoln's heritage with center-opening doors and a luxury interior featuring Alcantara, was one of the best-looking vehicles on the floor. And the Continental delivers more than a sophisticated exterior, as under the hood you can option a hybrid version of the twin-turbo EcoBoost 3.0-liter V-6. By combining the EcoBoost with hybrid technology, it produces a respectable 450 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque. Get into line with a bank draft, only 80 will be produced. Arguably the most-anticipated introduction was Toyota's new Supra. The 2020 GR Supra is the first global model developed by Toyota GAZOO Racing, the international umbrella for Toyota's global motorsport program. Built on a chassis shared with BMW's Z4, Supra comes in two models, Base and Premium, with a third Launch Edition based on the Premium limited to 1,500 cars. Those get signatures from Akio Toyoda on carbon fiber for display in your office. However, the base model looks like the better bet. It has the same 300-hp. engine, grippy Alcantara seats (versus leather) and a low-low entry price of $50,920. Car-loving journalists agreed, it has better looks and more impact than Margot Robbie or Gal Gadot. Lexus brought it's RC F Track Edition, which has been upgraded and with a refreshed body. Meant for performance enthusiasts, add a set of tires and extra brake pads and you, too, Can't Drive 55, or have a good weekend of racing. Also, the company displayed a "concept" LC Convertible, a very sexy and meant-for-sunshine-weekend-weather touring. It awaits a decision on soft top or folding hardtop; well, that's what we think. For family buyers, Volkswagen introduced a new Passat, which could look a bit more like the Arteon concept, in our opinion. However, Passats are meant for driving, not display, so look for aggressive pricing and "German Engineering" adverts to follow. Also look for significantly upgraded features added to the brands already-good ride and handling. As their Atlas CUV has great lane keeping and VW's excellent telematics system, we expect Passat to be well received by couples and families. Nothing says Auto Show like CONCEPT CARS. Real concepts, even if they somewhat foreshadow the styling of future product. No production-intent cut lines, no perfect rubber gaskets with part numbers. Real. For several years Nissan and Infiniti have provided winners, 2019 was no exception. The Infiniti QX Inspiration is, of course an electrified vehicle that hints at Infiniti's upcoming EV architecture. There is, according to the company, intent to build, though likely with conventional doors to meet safety regulations. Like other EVs, there's a "skateboard" modular base with e-motors on each axle, which generates all-wheel drive. The QX Inspiration took three of EyesOn Design's awards— Best Concept Vehicle, Best Designed Interior and Best Use of Color, Graphics or Materials Nissan brought the IM purely electric sedan with its odd 2+1+2 seating arrangement. Nissan says IM stands for "Intelligent Mobility". With power estimated at 483 horsepower and 590 lb.-ft. of torque, the battery pack extends range to 380 miles, eliminating any range anxiety. It’s low, has a fantastic paint job, and a video-only instrument/infotainment panel sweeping across the dashboard. Subaru, home of family cars and the wonderful Subaru WRX and WRX STI boy-racers, brought to the USA, for the first time, the STI S209, a full-on racecar wrapped into an STI body. Subaru Technica International is Subaru's race shop and skunk works. Everything is hand-built or hand-assembled, including the 200 S209's that will be sent to the USA. While 341 horsepower from the boxer engine might sound small, competitors around the world have been looking at the taillights in multiple racing venues. Kia brought its new Telluride three-row crossover to Detroit, putting it on display and on an interior hill-climb track, the first at NAIAS. Appearance is sportier than the soon-to-come Hyundai Palisade, and Kia's theme echoed that with an active lifestyle display complete with ski racks and kayaks. Hyundai showed an enhancement to their N Line of performance vehicles. Available to you and me Really Soon, the Elantra GT N Line combines sportier trim elements with refinements to the chassis and powertrain. Think "BMW M that I can afford." Their first N Line racecar, the Veloster N TCR, will compete in IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge race, beginning with the 2019 Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona.
  16. Thom Cannell Contributor, GM-Trucks.com February 26th, 2019 General Motors had no news in Chicago, but delivered crowd-pleasing displays from Chevrolet and GMC, as well as Cadillac and their crossovers and SUVs. Of interest to truck enthusiasts were Heavy Duty Chassis Cabs from Ram, facelifts and equipment improvements from Toyota, face-lifts for some Nissan CUVs, a new Range Rover Evoke and more. The Chicago show is immensely different from Detroit, and that is a pun. With 2.3 million square feet of display space, the result is wide-spread (and often poorly lit) displays, indoor off-roading tracks, and worn boot-leather. These are the highlights. Alphabetically, Chevrolet brought its cars, well; they must have been there somewhere, and its new Heavy Duty Silverados, which were abundant in every powertrain and trim. And they brought the Lego Silverado, which is amazing in detail and execution. GMC “stood tall” with its Heavy Duty Sierra walk-under display and great lineup. Cadillac replaced their militaristic all-new XT6 with a gray one; it was better. They do have emotional colors available? Chevrolet Chevrolet spanned much of the North Hall, filling it primarily with trucks, crossovers like the fiercely red Blazer to lead your eyeballs into the display and nearby SUVs, but the focus was on Super Duty. Silverado had pride of position, though the new Traverse was mentioned, as well. From fifty-feet, you’re not convinced this Lego truck isn’t a real Silverado Z71. Even closer, it still fools the eye. Among the Silverados on display was this High Country. The Z71 Heavy Duty proved popular to the dealer, potential buyer, and social media crowd. Green is nice, Red is better, and note the difference in wheels and running boards per model. This is a great juxtaposition, the new Silverado Heavy Duty and its upgraded diesel engine. A perfect pair. We again saw the snow plow in Chicago, this time close enough to crawl beneath for a photo of the no-cutting-required blade attachment system. A pair of close-ups, first the dedicated, and covered, block heater that’s available and a better representation of the two bed steps designed for easy steel-toe boot access. At first glance, in Detroit, the new Blazer didn’t move our emotional needle the way we hoped. Much better in Chicago, with better lighting and blazing red color. It surely fills a needed niche in Chevrolet crossovers; it’s based on a global platform that carries Cadillac’s XT5. GMC GMC brought no new product to Chicago, only a clean, bright and entertaining display. Of note, their walk-under Sierra and the tracked Aspen special we mentioned as debuting in Detroit. Everyone Else Trucks, regardless their size, battle on GVWR, tow ratings, tire size, infotainment screen size (and bigger is always better), and now tailgates. Ram has a split gate that opens larger-left, then right, or folds. Ram offers a pullout entry step for easy entry, signature Ram box, and collapsible internal storage barrier. Ram’s big news—excuse the pun—was its 2019 Ram Chassis Cab; they brought several upfitter modified models as demonstrations, including a luxury fifth-wheel version. With so many ultra-lux 1500s, 2500s and 3500s, why there haven’t been more full-on interiors aimed at horse owners and racecar haulers, is retrospectively a mystery. Ram now offers its most modern interior to Class 3/4/5 upfitters. The chassis is 97-percent High Strength Steel, the diesel engine is an up-rated Cummins 6.7-liter knocking out 800 lb.-ft. of torque and mated to an 8-speed transmission. Not to be left out, Jeep brought a Rubicon version of the new Gladiator. Looks pretty rad to us. You? Land Rover’s latest small SUV/crossover Evoque is externally similar, though the platform is all-new and a bit longer with improved cargo space. Off road technology, which the brand is known for, is improved and the 246-hp Ingenium engine is now mated to a 48-Volt mild hybrid power assist to make 296 eco-friendly horsepower. Toyota debuted TRD Pro upgrades to its Tacoma, RAV4 and Sequoia. RAV4 has barely arrived in dealer showrooms, yet received welcome off road chops thanks to a dedicated suspension, all-terrain tires, all wheel drive, and standard torque vectoring for this RAV4 TRD Off-Road model. Tacoma, the perennial best-selling mid-sized pickup in North America, adds power-adjustable seats in most grades and has improved infotainment systems with 8-inch touchscreens that are smart phone savvy. Performance and glitter items like new grille and wheel designs, sequential LED headlights for the Tacoma TRD Pro model are balanced by new exterior cameras that deliver surrounding terrain views for improved off road safety. Sequoia TRD Pro now offers TRD-tuned Fox Racing off road dampers, plus other greasy-side items and an upgraded leather seat interior. The Land Cruiser Heritage Edition, a USA-specific version, goes the opposite way, shedding its chrome, third-row seats and running boards in favor of bronzed BBS wheels and a clean, subtly badged exterior. Without fanfare, Toyota put what may be future crossover product, the TJ Cruiser, on display to gauge reaction. Feel free to let them know what you think. Ford introduced its Super Duty trucks the week before GM’s similar launch. Their new Super Duty features three engines, the venerable 6.2-liter gas engine, now joined by an all-new 7.3-liter V-8 and third-generation 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel. The newer motors are paired with a Ford-designed and built 10-speed automatic with optional PTO. Features include a new high-flow grille, Pro Trailer Backup Assist, LED headlamps, and improved trailer tow and payload capacity. Nissan’s 2020 Rogue Sport, not available for several months, offers new grille, refreshed exterior styling, and adds high-level safety features: Nissan ProPILOT and Nissan Safety Shield. Together, that provides owners with automatic emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection, rear AEB, lane departure and rear cross traffic alert, radar-based smart cruise control and high beam assist. ProPILOT tech ““is a single-lane “hands-on” driving assistance technology that eases driver workload by reducing the amount of driver acceleration, steering and braking input under certain driving conditions, such as single-lane highway driving,” or semi-autonomy”, the company says. The Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition adds 18-inch wheels and some interesting, and functional cosmetics like black over-fenders, black-mesh grille and black roof rails, door handles and exterior mirrors. Inside they’ve added two-tone seating with contrast stitching; functionality includes a Best-In-Class 6,000-pound tow rating.
  17. Some useful information from GM TechLink regarding the GMC MultiPro Tailgate. Remember, Do not lower the inner gate with the primary gate open while a receiver hitch is present or Trucks Equipped with a Hitch Ball Do not lower the inner gate with the primary gate open (easy access or step positions) if a hitch ball or trailer is attached. This may damage the tailgate due to the amount of clearance between the hitch receiver and the lowered inner gate. (Fig. 26) Fig. 26 Tailgate Operation When the BCM receives a release command to release the primary tailgate or inner (auxiliary) gate, it applies a brief pulse of voltage to the appropriate left and right pickup box latch relay control circuits, which energizes the coil side of the relays. The switch side of the appropriate left and right latch relay then momentarily closes, supplying a brief pulse of battery positive voltage to the left and right pickup box primary tailgate or auxiliary endgate latches. (Fig. 27) The latches activate to release the gate. Fig. 27 The inner auxiliary pickup box endgate must be in the latched position before commanding the primary tailgate to release. The BCM disables the primary tailgate release function if the inner auxiliary pickup box endgate is open or ajar.
  18. Alright... let me take a deep breath... I just bought a 2019 Chevy Silverado Custom Trail Boss. I am having an issue with my 2019 Chevy MyLink infotainment system and its integration with my Note 9 since the Android Pie update. The issue: When I receive a phone call through Bluetooth OR Android auto, I am able to answer the phone call but... The ringer will NOT stop ringing on my infotainment system. The only way I can talk to the person on the other line is by picking up my phone and disabling it from the infotainment system (this did not happen at all on the previous software version and it was glorious). The ringer will also never turn off even after the phone call is ended. The only way I can turn the ringer off while driving is by turning it down (cannot switch back to radio to continue listening to music, which is very aggravating), so I am sitting in silence for the remainder of my trip... unless... I pull over on the side of the road, shut my vehicle down for 2 minutes to let the computer reset and start it back up. This issue does not occur on my work iPhone either... I thought that it might be an issue that chevy's infotainment support team could solve... It seems that it is not their issue because it only happens to android Pie software version phones and not any others. I call Samsung... do everything you could think of to troubleshoot this issue (finally factory reset my phone completely only to NOT resolve the issue). Samsung seems to believe that I need to send my phone in for a repair (even though it wasn't happening with the previous software version). Chevy thinks I need to just wait for a new software update for Android Pie... but I hate waiting because it is a very aggravating issue and love my music! Is ANYONE else having these same issues? Is there a solution that anyone can think of? I would like to just revert back to the previous software version and forget about it, but I am not sure of the problems that may cause...
  19. Do the 2019 GM Step Assists fit the 2014-2018 model years? Trying to figure out if the 2019 Sport Steps will fit my 2016 Silverado. Thanks.
  20. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 7/31/18 We've certainly seen a lot of photos of the all new 2019 Silverado and Sierra. Photos of the interior and photos of the trim packages. Photos on-road and photos off-road. But what we have not seen yet is how the 2019 Silverado and Sierra's new T1XX platform looks mechanically under the surface. Until today. GM-Trucks.com has obtained exclusive copies of parts diagrams for the next generation Silverado. From these drawings we can gleam just a little bit more about how the next generation trucks are different from their predecessors. Set One: Front Suspension, Differential, Axle, and Driveshaft Our first batch of drawings show us a few things, mainly the new T1XX front suspension setup (which is similar to the Colorado), a new HD-like front differential, a new rear axle with new yoke, and a new driveshaft setup. Set Two: Front and Rear Brake Calipers Our second batch of drawings show the new 2019 T1XX front and rear calipers (with electronic parking brake). Set Three: Engine Blow Out, Dual Exhaust, Cold Air Factory Intake And our third batch of drawings show what the new L87/L84 looks like blown apart (with individual cylinder deactivation instead of an AFM VLOM). We also see the new dual exhaust and brand new airbox design that draws cool air from the front of the vehicle instead of the side fender. Thanks to our "GM deepthroat" for sending these files our way. Next week we head to Wyoming for our first drive of the 2019 Silverado while our 2019 Silverado LTZ is being shipped to our dealership from the factory.
  21. Greetings ALL, So I wanted to try and help some of those that may be on the fence of looking at the new Silverado. I have been into cars for as long as I can remember and actually work in the automotive supplier business. I have been involved with the engineering of some of the internal components on this truck. I wanted to give an honest review from an average guy that uses his vehicles for all kinds of uses... As I said in the title here are some of my love and hate items for this truck after 5000 miles of driving. (some highway, some back roads, and some off road) Let's start with the positives! 1. The Looks – I really like the new styling of these new trucks and think that it looks aggressive and the lines crisp. 2. Power Tailgate – yeah, I thought it was a gimmick but I can tell you that I have come to love this option. Having my hands full and being able to use my knee to close the tailgate is great. 3. Video Mirror – I didn’t know about this at first but this is great!. I have loaded things in the cab and thought oh well I can’t go to high…. Yeah. No longer an issue 4. Space – the interior is roomy and I’m a “BIG” guy. I can even sit in the back seat which usually doesn’t happen even in other auto’s 5. Ride – ride quality is comfortable and the interior is quiet at all speeds (except the whistle mentioned below) 6. Heated steering wheel – How did I ever live without this feature… Seriously… As I write this it’s -9°F here and my hands have been toasty the entire day! 7. The Gauge cluster – I’m impressed with the gauge layout and how they can be modified by what information you want to see 8. Rear seat storage – This is close to being a meh item but I do like having this to store straps and such out of sight until I need them. 9. Good fuel economy (5,3L) – I have been getting about 20mpg and 25mpg max with this truck on long trips. My daily drive I’m at 18 to 20… that’s awesome with a brick. 10. Window ALL down – I love this feature. It’s nice to open all the windows at once and cruise down the road. I’ve only been able to do it twice since I bought the truck but hey. 11. Information screen – I love that you can set what information you want to see in the vehicle info and it will show you everything from brake pad % life to off road angles. 12. Bed tie down points – I like the multiple tie down points in the bed. They have always been perfect with anything that I’ve hauled. 13. Bed liner – It’s great. Nothing slides around and it seems durable so far. 14. Forward camera – I like the forward camera for tight spaces and being on the front it stays clean. 15. Cross traffic alert – It’s actually already saved me because I couldn’t see fully… I think this will be required on all my other vehicles. 16. LED Headlights – I’m sold on these. I like using them not passing them. They work great to light up the night. 17. 115v Outlets – I love the outlets and especially in the bed. Have been super handy for me thus far. Let’s move to the MEH factor… 1. Interior choices – Only having the once color reminds me of how Henry Ford started painting his cars… all black is boring but does looks nice 2. Faux wood – I don’t get it. I don’t like it. I don’t hate it. I just don’t understand how it fits in? 3. Folding Mirrors – I like them but I hate that I have to push a button every time. It would be nice to have them auto open to parking and shifting into drive… 4. Heads up display – It’s nice not having to take your eyes off the road but yeah. It’s not that useful as far as information. It does show me when there’s a car in front of me but I hope I know that anyway. 5. The gold bronze accents – Another one of those things in the interior where I’m like… HUH…. I don’t get how this goes with anything else in this vehicle. 6. Center console storage – yes, it’s large. It has lights. It has USB outlets… and can get filled with junk I guess. 7. Dash Storage – I don’t understand the purpose of the cubby in the dash in front of the radio. Its storage but it’s not very handy and whatever is in there is baked in the sun? 8. Seat comfort – The seats are not the most comfortable that I’ve ever been in and they are not the worst. They are just meh. 9. The double glove box – I mean yeah, it’s nice to have the extra storage but the top one isn’t practical for anything more than your insurance cards and registration 10. Exhaust – I mean it’s ok. Personally I liked the tucked rectangle in the bumper look. It sounds good at 1st start up but quiets down to fast… no drone at highway speeds 11. Wheel well liners – It’s nice to have the protection but I don’t know what they are made of but grass and mud is stuck to them even when power washing they are rough and almost porous. 12. Disable start stop - To be honest I guess it’s nice to turn it off but I really don’t notice it. It takes a slight second to get used to not just tromping the gas but it doesn’t bother me. 13. Over the air updates – yes it’s nice to get updates over the air but I’ve never noticed that they fix the issues that I see from time to time? 14. Side lighting – I mean yeah it’s great to have the extra light around the truck but… I’m mostly blinded when I use it and it doesn’t illuminate the ground like I’d prefer. 15. Turning radius – I know this is a big vehicle but I feel like the turning radius sucks. I really struggle to get the right position on the 1st shot. 16. Lane departure warning – I mean yeah, it’s nice if you’re drifting but it gets annoying if I’m trying to ride the edge to pass a truck on the highway. 17. Solid side steps – can’t keep them clean and they get slick when it is cold out. They look nice when they are clean but…. Finally the worst parts… 1. The shifting lever – to put it nicely… Looks crappy, feels crappy, is wobbly, and doesn’t really fit with the aesthetics of the truck. 2. Messenger app – To answer a message I have to touch the screen instead of just using the steering wheel controls and then I can’t speak my response… Why so terrible? 3. The 3D down view – Ok so I may be OCD but why do I have a WHITE Minecraft looking truck in my 3D and not a color matched truck. Seems like it could be an option? 4. Navigation – Navigation still seems off. I have put in destinations a few times and it’s taken me way out from where I wanted to be maybe fixed later. 5. Play from steering wheel – I hate that you can’t get your phone to play from the steering wheel. You must press it on the main screen or on the phone. I’d like to control everything from the wheel. 6. Double lines – On the dash with some of the infotainment items you get text doubled up and can’t read it. Programming OOPS? 7. Floor liners – Fronts are fine but I had to modify the rear to get to work with the storage… I mean. Did they not know how this was going to be put together? 8. The whistling hose – so I hate the noise and I’m still waiting for my dealer to fix. For the most tested vehicle how did they not notice this? 9. Back up camera – It never keeps the settings I set and the lens gets dirty so quickly so it’s mostly useless when it’s snowing and covered in slush. 10. AUTO high beams – I like the idea…. Not so much the execution. I feel like when I have it active it just flashes cars in front of me. I would be annoyed if I were being flashed from behind. 11. Wipers – these things are made for speeds under 35mph… anything past that and I get streaks and my sight is skewed. Maybe I just have a bad batch of wipers? 12. Voice commands – I don’t know if I have some type of accent that this thing doesn’t like or what but I can never get it to do what I need it to. 13. NO LED back up lights – I think GM dropped the ball on this one from factory… Why is everything else LED except that 14. Plate lights – oh not only the backup lights but the license plate lights are not LED. I think the color stands out and looks terrible… (at least it’s a cheap upgrade to fix) 15. Back up Infotainment light – so I dislike how bright the screen is when I’m backing up at night. It’s super bright and can be distracting at first. 16. No adaptive cruise – I realize that it will probably be an add on in a year or two but…. Everything else was rushed it seems so why not one more thing? 17. Warranty – yeah the new warranty sucks compared to every other vehicle I’ve ever purchased. It seems questionable why it’s so short… 18. Funky Fuel gage – so I have noticed a few times that I can fill the truck up and it will show just over ¾ and as I drive it will slowly go up to F then start on its plunge to E. Not sure what that’s all about. 19. Double antenna – Ok, so the whip antenna sucks. I hit it on my garage every day and it will be replaced but why not just have one like other vehicles. 20. No Fog with High beams – why is this… please fix as if you turn on fog lights it disables auto high beams. Seems counter intuitive. 21. Badges on fenders – I don’t care for the fender badging and don’t know why this spot was picked 22. Truck has limited run time – So yeah, if you walk away from the truck with the keys it will only run for 15 minutes. If you start the truck and leave the keys in, it will only run for an hour. Hate this! SO here’s the review after 5000 miles. Do I have buyer’s remorse? No, I still love the truck but wanted to share my experience so far that might help someone on the fence. I’m happy and it goes in the snow very well. I’m ready to use it this summer and enjoy the sunroof and all the windows down. Take care and drive on!
  22. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 4/22/2018 Anyone who is planning out how they might want to order their next generation Silverado can offically start rejoicing. A lot of new information just dropped. Chevrolet just updated it's ordering information for the 2019 Silverado and we now know what colors it will be offered in, among other things. Didn't see the dates your dealer can start ordering? We've got em! Here's the official names of the eleven colors you'll be able to paint your 2019 Silverado: Red Hot Havana Brown Metallic Iridescent Pearl Tricoat Satin Steel Metallic Northsky Blue Metallic Silver Ice Metallic Summit White Black Oakwood Metallic Shadow Gray Metallic Cajun Red Tintcoat Two colors, Iridescent Pearl Tricoat and Cajun Red Tintcoat will be extra cost options. Oakwood Metallic will also be extra cost and also won't be available at the start of production . As far as which colors are which.... we're still piecing that together. GM's official photography has only a few options and there's no official guide to which color is which. Here's what we can piece together so far... Summit White Red Hot Satin Steel Metallic But more color options have popped up online and on facebook. Black (Thanks Jeff Holeman) Silver Ice Metallic (Thanks Cesar Sanchez) Cajun Red Tintcoat (Thanks Jeff Holeman) Northsky Blue Metallic Oakwood Metallic
  23. OnStar sucks!!! It's been 2 weeks since I've taken delivery of my truck OnStar still hasn't been able to signup my truck and now I'm halfway through my "super generous" month of a working app. I've called them 4 different times they waist about a half hour of my time then the level 2 person tells me they put in a ticket and they'll call me when it's fixed. Onstar has yet to call me back once! Absolutely unacceptable!!! Especially when you only get one month of service VS the 5 years I got with my last truck. Why am I still buying GM?
  24. Having just passed 10k miles this week, I thought I would offer my opinion on how I feel about the truck so far. Background: I special ordered my LT Trail Boss back in May 2018 and picked it up in September 2018. I have almost every option that you can order on it except the sunroof (would have delayed my production at the time). My truck was built the very first week of production (7/09/2018) and is one of only a small handful of Red Silverados, if not the only one, to receive the Gideon/Dark Atmosphere leather interior as that color was changed to not an option for Red Silverados on the second week of production. Within the first week or two of receiving it, I installed a custom Electronic Cutout System for my exhaust, Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 33.5x12.5R20 mud tires, an Undercover Ultra Flex tonneau cover, and vinyl wrapped the scoop portion of my hood. Review: Honestly, I can't believe its been 10k miles already and those miles have flown by without any major issues. I will start with the few issues I have experienced. For the first two months, I had Bluetooth connectivity issues where my phone would randomly disconnect and reconnect multiple times a day. This was fixed in November by software update V507 and has not reoccurred, knock on wood. I also have had Service ESC and Service Parking Brake lights (not at the same time) come up randomly a couple of times but they went away on their own the next time I started the car. Other than these two issues, the truck has been great. It has 110% met and exceeded my expectations. It drives great, its quiet (when the exhaust cutout is closed), its smoother than my K2 was, and it turns a lot of heads. The interior is beautiful and well laid-out, with tons of room in the back seat (Crew Cab) and very comfortable seats for long trips. The Bose surround sound with subwoofer kicks butt and delivers crystal clear, crisp sound. The Blind Spot monitors and Rear Traffic Alert (Safety Package I) work great and have saved my butt many times already. The 5.3 is much quicker and more agile than my K2 was and the 8 speed is a definite improvement. The new Dynamic Fuel Management is seamless and unnoticeable. I am averaging 14-16 mpg city and 16-18 mpg highway, with an all-time high of 21 mpg on a specific highway trip I took and that's pretty good in my book for a lifted brick with mud tires. This past weekend I went on a ski trip in Up North Michigan (Harbor Spring, MI) and we received 10-12 inches of snow in the 3 days I was there on top of the 2 ft that was already there. The Trail Boss handled it with no issue and made it up the steep, winding, snow-covered road to our hill-side cabin like it was driving on straight, dry pavement. I have yet to do any major offroading but during the light offroading that I have done here and there, it performed excellently. I did punch the gas on one little hill and got some air (about 1-2 ft off the ground) and the suspension absorbed the landing nicely. I look forward to testing its capabilities more this summer. The short bed is much bigger in this generation and I honestly haven't noticed any reduced space issues when loading my truck (my K2 had the standard 6.4 ft bed). Also, the oil is much easier to change since they freed up the space around the filter and plug, making oil changes a breeze. Overall, I am very blessed to have this great truck and couldn't be happier. No one pressured me to write this review, nor did GM have any contact with me about it. This is my honest opinion on how I feel about the truck and I hope this review helps anyone thinking about buying one to make the right decision for them. If anyone has any specific questions at all, please feel free to ask.
  25. Thinking about adding 2 or 3 small leds in the ram air hood scoop. Guy on another forum did it on a Silverado but this is the only one I have seen. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dieselplace.com/forum/76-speciality-forums/81-electrical/951082-2017-hood-scoop-lights.html%3famp=1 May be too many since I added running board lights though...
