What suggestions or advice is available for buying a GMC | Chevy truck? What should I watch out for -- the GOOD and BAD? I want to come back to the GMC | Chevy family. For over 20 years, we owned a 98 GMC Suburban, putting over 230k miles on it myself, and I LOVED that truck. Other than typical wear and tear -- I never had any problems or issues with my Suburban. I am looking at 2016-2022 -- GMC | Chevy 1500 | 2500 series, all trims (4x4), except the base models. My budget is around $35k plus'ish; yes, I understand my budget limits what I can get. I am a USAF retired veteran living off a fixed income. Yes, we tow hitch pull RVs and various trailers, but not as often as before. What are the GOOD, BAD, and UGLY these days on the GMC | Chevy trucks? Is the additional price for either diesel and/or 2500 worth it? SHORT STORY: so, a few years ago, I bought a 2015 Ram 1500 4x4 EcoDiesel 6cyl w/turbo Lonestar -- well, I have been disappointed with Chrysler | Fiat (FCA). They lied about the EcoDiesel, and after forced recall ECM updates, they sucked all performance and mpg from the truck. Buying a newish GMC | Chevy, I do not want to fall into what happened with my 2015 Ram. When I had my suburban, I never had so many recalls, been lied to, and never had poor performance. Thanks for any suggestions that you will provide -- Gary (ExFalconFxr)
This may have already been posted, but I couldn't find it... From 04-19 the bed size of the Chevy Silverados are very similar. Less than 1.3" in either direction for the 5'8" Crew Cab beds. We have purchased 14-18 covers that fit perfectly on 2019's. With a measurement, I could determine if I should purchase two of the 04-06 covers for our other 2019 trucks. Here's the inside dimensions I have found online for the trucks: 04-06: 68.13" x 63.19" 07-13: 68" x 63.63" 14-18: 69.33" x 62.33" All of the covers that I have purchased will overlap the side rails by about 2" and tailgate by a little more, which in theory would mean that they would fit various trucks just fine. The problem is that none of the sellers post the exact dimensions, nor will they give that information when asked. I suppose this is so that buyers will have to buy the more expensive covers for the newer year trucks. The same covers, made from the exact same materials vary in price from $299 to nearly $900 from vendor to vendor and year to year. I understand supply and demand, but this simply feels like price gouging. Anyone have any experience with this? I have put the 14-18 covers on 2019 trucks, and they fit just fine. Just wondering if the plethora of 04-06 $299 covers are of similar size. Anyone know?
2017-2019 Gas or Diesel
dodge stomper posted a topic in 2014 - 2019 Silverado & SierraMorning, I am trying to make an educated decision concerning buying a new truck. I am looking at a 2500-3500 Silverado 2017-18... I was sold on the 6.6 Diesel but to be honest the price is holding me back. I have found a few deals and this months incentives are fabulous. BUT that is not the question. The question is I'd like to hear from owners who have the 6.0 Gas version and the 6.6 Diesel. How do your trucks preform? Mainly the Gas because I have no doubt the Diesel is a Beast. But with a 10k higher price.... and about .40c a gallon more for fuel plus Def.... and Maint. What type of mileage are you Gas owners getting under towing conditions? I will be towing about 13k loaded. Even though not near as powerful does the 6.0 give good overall performance to your needs? Longevity? Thanks I really appreciate actual owners thoughts and experiences. DS Keith M SW Ohio
I went to my local dealer in Washington and received the following pricing information for the 2015 Suburban (I took a photo, but they also let me have paper copies). It includes all 3 trims, (LS, LT, LTZ), 2WD and 4WD versions, and also fleet pricing. I was able to negotiate a final price and we are ready to order as soon as Chevrolet opens up their website for custom ordering. I hope to have a new Suburban sometime in the early spring. (Hopefully in time for some late ski season!). The price increases appear to match the latest pricing available from Autonews.com
