My 2014 Silverado


Jsb55

Recommended Posts

Getting ready to goto the races. I haven't towed the enclosed trailer yet but the 2014 with 5.3L and 3.42 gears tows this little trailer a little better than my 2008 5.3L with 3.73 gears. I got about 3 miles to the gallon more with the new truck towing. I'm anxious to see how it tows my 8 1/2' x 16' enclosed trailer, that will be the true test.post-124031-0-86503100-1380634450_thumb.jpg

Yes my 08 had the 4 speed. I was a little hesitant about going from the 3.73 to 3.42 gears even though the 2014 has a 6 speed. First gear definitely goes up higher in RPM's in the 2014, but overall is a better combination for me.

 

Hopefully I can get the wiring harness to hook up my brake controller to tow the enclosed trailer soon!!

Nice truck. I also have the 6spd 3.42 5.3 with the max trailering package, but mine is a 2010. I have a 8.5 x 16 enclosed haulmark (18' if you include the vnose) which weighs just over 3500 pounds if I remember correctly. Curious to see how yours does. Mine tows it fine but when I load it up with the toys, about another 2200 pounds (so 5700 or so) I can really feel it back there. Not when braking but going up hills and when taking off. It's not bad but you know its there. I know some guys say they cant feel their trailer, but I want to know how you notice your trailer loaded and not loaded since our setup is very similar.

Thanks!! Glad I got the silver, its much harder to tell I don't clean my truck as often as I should!

The thing I like the most about it is the added room in the back. My 6 year old and 3 year old both say how much better it is to ride in their car seats with the extra leg room.
