2014 GMC Sierra 1500: First Drive Video

Video lead II

We just had our first opportunity to get behind the wheel of the new GMC Sierra to see how well it handles the roads north of Santa Barbara along the Southern California coast. GMC even gave us a little towing training in the classroom and on the tarmac before it hooked up a 23-foot Airstream to our bumper, which had a weight-distributing hitch. Check out our video now, but look for our full story soon. 

 

 

Comments

When the Tundra came out in 07, Ford compared the F-150 to the Tundra in everything down to bolt sizes (you can check YouTube). Why the sudden change now?

-----

What sudden change? You're talking 7 years ago and the Tundra changed nothing!

If the Tundra wins ANY of the tests in the next shootout I will really be suprised.

@Rick

What is wrong with selling to fleets? FYI, it's about 65% consumer and 35% fleet sales Ford sells.

Companies purchase the most reliable, least expensive trucks they can buy, therefore FORD.

Yeah, it's simple. Use your brain, would you buy a line of trucks that will drain your wallet, and you say Fleet sales are bad.

Thank god your not a salesman because you'd be broke.

A sale is a sale.

Your analogy is still stupid. SMH!

Frank, I am a salesman in the trucking industry. We sell our services to to move heavy haul freight. We are doing quit well I might add.

Ok salesman, explain to me how selling to Fleets is a bad idea?

@TRX4 Tom
I've trying to bite my tongue here, but you do come out with some comments that are obvious.

1. A midsizer is smaller than a full size, true. So cab dimensions isn't going to prove much.

2. Put your 5 fully grown NA men in this truck and you have already loaded 1 100lbs into it. Now place 700lbs on the hitch and what have you got left. As Lou has stated in the past you either use your trucks for work or as a taxi. They are not suitable for both.

3. Load the back of the truck with your belongings for your 5 day adventure and where can you go? Legally you can't move your truck. So you and your 5 fully grown men can camp in your driveway, sounds like fun.

4. But if you load 3 kids (even fully grown men) in the back the BT50 is okay. You will still have 800-1 000lbs for gear and food. You can go camping/hunting/fishing and not sit in the driveway.

5. Load 3 kids in the back of this truck and you have gained what? Some sandwiches, coffee and picnic food. Your weight is still high.

So give up your DenverSpinesque style of rubbish.

@Trx4 Dave
Have you ever seen a half ton crew cab with an 8' box? i know ford sells extended cabs and regualr cab half tons in that bed length, but i have never seen the extended cab in person, more people are buying the 4 door trucks, some people like me boughtour trucks to replace suvs, when you look at all the SUV nameplates that where changed to cross overs its a little rediculace, the Grand Cherrokee, Cherrokee, exploer, pathfinder have now become cross overs, blazers and broncos are gone, leaving only a few expensive options in the 4x4 market xterra, FJ, 4runner trail, and jeep wrangler, most of which cost more and get worse MPG than a crew cab pick up. I looked at getting a 4runner trail , toyota wanted 40k with cloth seats i got my 5.4l raptor with lux pkg heated leathermemory seats for 37.5k the yota is rated better in MPG but i feel like i got a better deal. Without much competion real SUVs are going up in cost my 05 suburban stickered at 47k with inflation the 2010 Raptor stickered at 42k. this is forcing many people into the pickup trucks who would not other wise buy one. As Lou stated some of us need the extra clearnce b/c of snow and what not , i have seen subarus get stuck b/c they dont have enough clearnce. The air dam was a deal breaker for me when i damaged a rented 09 z71 crew silvarado on a dirt road that i had taken my 05 suburban on all the time and was following a friend in an 09 f150 xlt. the bumper on the chevy was jacked up and the f150 was fine , GM needs to fix their ground clearnce problem on their off road kgs or they will loose more ground to Ford. infact most Raptor owners i have talked to boughtthe truck to beable to drive places where there stock GMT 400 chevys could go, and just are not into lifts and voiding their warrenties.

The Big 3 are producing great light duty products across the board. When you make fanboy comments, you simply diminish the value of your input. And many should be thankful that you continue to limit your potential to the benefit of others in all areas of life.

Carilloskis the Grand Cherokee has always been Unit Body, its not really a cross over or based on any car. It will go places you couldn't dream of taking a stock F-150. Many SUV's do a lot better in the snow then pickups.

Cari,
I would like to see a supercrew with an 8' box, but I will continue to use 8' box supercabs as long as they are available through Ford. I feel like it is on the verge of being discontinued. GM and Ram stopped making them.

Even HD with any 8' beds are becoming harder and harder to find, but you can order them.

If you are a Raptor owner and if it is like you say where most owners bought their Raptor to drive places off-road, that proves my point that many buyers are not buying trucks for hauling anymore and just want the short beds.

Good looking truck. I was wrong. This GMC beats the Silverado in that department. Notice how they seem to sit noticeably lower than last gen. There will be lot’s of aftermarket to lift that up. Like I said about the Silvy, I may sneak on to a lot to take a good look at this. However I expect Ford will be out with an equalizer, or, I mean an F150 that will take the shine off of whatever GM has gained here.

@Dave - This IS the LONG BED you douche!

Crew cab models add the 6’6” box as a new option in addition to the 5’8” box. Extended cab models come with 6’6” boxes and regular cab models are available with 6’6” or 8’ boxes. Customers who tow will appreciate the four- and seven-pin trailer connector located in the rear bumper.

We don't need 8 footers out here. Cram your long bed up your own a$$!

Strongest
Smartest
Morst capable
2014 Sierra!

@TRX-4 Tom - Who you calling ugly? You quad cab is ugly and you had to put air bags on it. Next time buy a real truck and cram your air bags up your own A$$!

@Frank - Ford trucks aren't neccessarily the cheepest to run for fleet use.
This is Vincentric's breakdown for 2013 "Best Value" Fleet vehicles:
Pickup
Compact - Tacoma reg cab 4x2
1/2 ton - Ford F150 reg cab 4x2
3/4 ton - GM/Chev 2500 reg cab 4x2
1 ton - GM/Chev 3500 reg cab 4x2

Vans
Mini - Ram Grand Caravan
Mini - cargo - Ford Transit Connect
1/2 ton passenger - Ford E150
3/4 ton passenger - Mercedes Sprinter
1 ton passenger - GM/Chev 3500
1/2 ton cargo - Gm/Chev 1500
3/4 ton cargo - Mercedes sprinter
1 ton cargo - Mercedes Sprinter

If we use their data on pickups for personal use:
Compact, Pickup...........Toyota Tacoma
The Tacoma has been first in class for 9 years in a row.
Full Size Pickup, 1/2 Ton..........Ford F150
The F150 has won its class 3 years in a row.
Full Size Pickup, Heavy Duty 3/4 Ton............. Chevrolet/GMC
Silverado/Sierra 2500
GMC/Chev won this category last year.
Full Size Pickup, Heavy Duty 1 Ton..........RAM 3500
GMC/Chev won this category last year.

There isn't a single brand that dominates all of the categories.

It does loook like Ford does well in the LD segment and GMC does well in the HD segment.
Mercedes has the van market covered the best. That makes sense since they have the most modern vans.

@Dave, it was my point to prove that most people do not buy a half ton to haul big heavy things, its to haul family/friends and gear places . when I ski raced the amount of gear required prety much dicted a suburban without the third row or a pick up with a 5.5 foot box to fit all the gear for 4 people, there is not a rack big enough when everyone brings 5-6 pairs of skis. In the summer my truck carrys camping gear or guns and targets for shooting competions i use my 4x4 a few times a month and my ground clearnce and approch angles more often ( i know when to use 4x4) the fact is that there is not a market for 1/2 tons with 8ft boxes people just dont fill them up even 6.5 on crew cab fords are rare it would seem that the most comon wheel base on fords is the 145" which is crw 5.5 extended 6.5 and regular 8" thats what sells and thats what dealers stock. people all over the world use global trucks with smaller beds than half ton crew cabs and do just fine thats why there is a tail gate that you cn drop down or a $200 bed extender that every oem sells to give you the extra room when you need it.

@Dave - a Supercrew with an 8 foot box would be the size of a HD and need a HD cargo capacity. The current 4x4 supercrew 6.5 box is in the neighbourhood of 1500 lbs. cargo capacity. The 5.5 box actually has a heavier cargo capacity because it is slightly lighter (minus a foot of box and frame).
What would they do with an 8 ft box F150 supercrew. That means one more frame length.
167 inch wheel base?

Remember GMC, one of the reasons they postponed going to a 6.5 box crew was the fact that the longer length wouldn't fit into their spray booths.
Ford would have to engineer a new frame, suspension, GVW ratings, tow ratings, and change their assembly lines for what whould be an obvious low volume seller.

If you need a 8 foot box crew cab with any cargo capacity - a HD is the way to go.

Thanks Lou!

You're a recreational buyer which is totally different.

Go to any lumber yard and watch folks try to load stuff into their 6' and shorter beds. Contractors are doing this when they should have been smarter and bought a longer bed. The long beds are needed.

It used to be 8' was standard and 6' was short. Now 8' is long or non-existant, 6' standard and you can get them even shorter.

As sales to appearance buyers went from over 25% in 2004 to less than 6% today, sales to contractors, fleet customers and farmers and ranchers are going up. These are the people who can use the 8' beds and where the opportunity to make gains arise.

What people do around the world is irrelevant because they are using mostly vans, horses, carts or any cheap piece of junk they can rig together, unlike here where they use full-size pickups. When a third world country does get by using a small-pickup how many times have we seen them vastly overloaded? Even if we could do that here that is no fun and you wouldn't be able to legally drive down the road very far.

http://www.mileanhour.com/files/2010/8/movindddaaaayyyy.jpg

Lou, If I bought the current F-150 SuperCrew 6.5' box, I would buy it with the HD payload package which is 2300 lbs payload.

I don't need a crewcab 8' box. It was asked if I have seen one. I hardly see them. I just want them to keep the supercab 8' box in the F-150. If the sales no longer justify a 8' bed F-150, they really need to redesign the F-250 with a good gas engine. I don't want an old model or a diesel.

My loads are large and 8' long but not very heavy, so that's why I can deal with 1500 to 2300 lb payloads. I could get around it by using a short bed and a trailer but towing a trailer is not always convenient and hurts fuel economy. It looks like few people buy 8' beds nicely equipped anymore so I will get around it some how.

@Dave - I know enough guys in heavy industry and oddly enough, most have 3/4 ton to 1 ton crew cab trucks with 6.5 boxes.
My neighbour is a building contractor, he had an F150 supercrew 6.5 box and just bought a F350 Crew 6.5 box.
8 foot boxes are rare and often exclusively the domain of fleets. Even my brother's company truck is a crewcab 3/4 ton Chevy with 6.5 box.
You didn't stipulate at the beginning of your post as to whether or not we were talking work trucks.

When it comes to work or as you stated "recreational buyer", one needs to buy what fits their needs the best.

Ford must of increased their specs since they weren't that high when I bought my 2010 truck.

Ford trucks are the Quarter Pounder With Cheese of the truck world. Why settle for one of those when you could have the wonderful Silverado or Sierra which is like the delicious flame broiled Whopper? Just because they sell more Quarter Pounders does not make McDonald's the best. I'll take a juicy flame broiled Whopper any day of the week. As my boss would say, "let it be written....let it be done"

@Dave - Take your bed-time stories and cram them up your own a$$. The beds are way too high for loading! Why do you think GM is adding a man step? Come on! If you need a long bed go for a HD! It is people like YOU that are ruining pickups for average buyers who just want to haul some stuff or ride to the Home Depot. For milage, people are getting 23 mpg on the new Silverado HD's, beating both Ram and Ford! So know your roll.

Now here comes TRX4 Tom biitchinng because I said a Silverado HD tows more and gets better mileage than his half ton Ram!

THE 2014 SILVERADO EXCEEDS THE HIGHEST OF STANDARDS.



We’ve made it our life’s work to make Silverado the benchmark of full-size pickups. Everything from Silverado’s interior and exterior styling to ergonomics and performance have been re-engineered. The new Silverado is stronger, smarter and more capable than ever.

Our available EcoTec3 5.3L V-8 engine offers an EPA-estimated 23 mpg highway for 2WD models and 22 mpg highway for 4WD models. That’s better than any V-8 competitor and beats the EPA highway estimates for the Ford F-150 EcoBoost turbocharged V-6.6 With our EcoTec3 5.3L V-8 engine, you keep the benefits of a larger-displacement engine and get better fuel efficiency. We think of it as “doing more with more.”

Silverado’s all-new interior is developed entirely around functionality. Centered around the needs of the driver, we intelligently integrated the smartest technologies into the interior, and the redesigned front seats are built for all-day comfort.

Download Catalog

Forward-opening doors provide easy access to a reimagined interior that provides more rear-seat leg room in Crew Cab and Double Cab models. Innovative available MyLink† features keep you and your crew connected to the world.

Innovations in capability extend all the way from the hood to the hitch. Improvements like the fully boxed front frame, larger axles and available Max Trailering package (available this fall) allow Silverado to offer a class-leading trailering capacity of up to 11,500 pounds.† Electric power steering, coil-over-shock front suspension and new high lateral-rate body mounts provide better ride and handling. Available integrated under-rail LED lamps, a new upper cargo tie-down system and an available innovative CornerStep rear bumper show we know how you use a truck.

Keep reading to learn how Silverado helps you accomplish the task at hand, time and time again.

Our 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8 offers the proven power and dependability of our V-8 truck engines, with better highway fuel economy than a leading competitor's smaller turbocharged V-61. It combines tested technologies like Active Fuel Management, Direct Injection and continuously Variable Valve Timing to provide class-leading fuel efficiency3 with the peace of mind that comes with our reliable engine designs. No matter which EcoTec3 engine you choose, Silverado offers you a fuel-efficient and powerful option7.


Direct Injection
Active Fuel Management
Variable Valve Timing


Built for truck use, the high-torque 4.3L V-6, coming late summer 2013, provides power for towing and acceleration. The first pickup V-6 with Active Fuel Management, the engine automatically switches to four-cylinder mode under light engine-load demands to help save fuel.†

Our most popular engine, Silverado’s all-aluminum 355-horsepower 5.3L V-8 senses your load, seamlessly switching between V-8 power and four-cylinder fuel economy as demands change.

Silverado’s EcoTec3 6.2L V-8 is the most powerful V-8 Chevrolet has ever offered in a full-size light duty pickup. It will be available this fall.

SEATS WITH ALL-DAY COMFORT


Crafted from stain-resistant high-wear cloth or leather appointments, Silverado’s seats are easier to clean, harder wearing and more comfortable than ever. Resilient dual-density foam maintains its shape longer to offer all-day comfort over years of ownership. Thanks to a 10-way power-adjustable seat available on LT models and standard on LTZ models, the driver seat is configurable to your exact preferences. Available heated and cooled seating options let you travel in constant comfort.



ORGANIZATION REIGNS SUPREME


With an overhead console, front- and rear-door storage and upper and lower glove boxes, every single space has been optimized. The available center console provides a two-compartment organization system; one provides features to support your technological needs, and a second space supports hanging files.

STEERING WHEEL WITH INTEGRATED CONTROLS


Flip through the displays, activate the available heated steering wheel, change songs and activate the available voice controls without ever taking your hands off the wheel.

OVERSIZED CONTROLS AND CENTER SWITCH BANK


The new Silverado interior groups most important controls within easy reach of the driver and features large knobs that are easy to adjust even while wearing work gloves. Beneath the climate controls, there’s a center switch bank that lets you access Silverado’s features with the touch of a finger.


IMPROVED REAR PASSENGER COMFORT


Both Silverado Crew Cab and Double Cab have redesigned seating that offers increased foot room and leg room in the second row. Accessing the rear seat and getting in and out is easier thanks to wider openings and larger doors on Crew Cab and Double Cab models.

BOSE® SOUND SYSTEM


An available Bose premium audio system offers a superior listening experience. This first-class upgrade provides you with high-quality sound and is available with both bench and bucket seats.

QUIET CABIN


There’s no quieter full-size pickup interior on the market, thanks to inlaid triple-sealed doors, a more aerodynamic windshield angle and a tuned exhaust system. Silverado models equipped with the 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8, coming fall 2013, also have active noise cancellation, similar to the sound-reducing technology used in high-end headphones.

DRIVER ALERT PACKAGE


Alerts from the available Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert systems can be transmitted to the driver through vibrations in the Safety Alert Driver Seat. Vibrations correspond to the direction of the indicated alert, reducing reaction time in helping to avoid potential collisions. Audible warnings can also be selected, if desired.

A COMPLETELY
REDESIGNED
EXTERIOR


Our engineers agonized over every crease and corner to improve Silverado’s aerodynamics. New inlaid doors, an integrated spoiler in the tailgate and dual power-dome hood all combine to create a truck that doesn’t just cheat the wind; Silverado rules it.

REGULAR CAB


Available fall 2013
Available in standard- or long-bed models, with 2WD or 4WD and with the standard EcoTec3 4.3L V-6 or available EcoTec3 5.3L V-8, you can build a Silverado Regular Cab that is anything but ordinary.

See 2013 Model


DOUBLE CAB


Available summer 2013
Silverado’s Double Cab offers additional space for passengers or cargo and now has forward-opening doors to make loading and unloading easier. Available in both 2WD and 4WD models, a standard bed and a choice of engines, a Silverado Double Cab can be built to your specifications.

See 2013 Model


CREW CAB


Two bed options, the new 6-foot, 6-inch cargo box and the 5-foot, 8-inch box, and a spacious interior mean Silverado Crew Cab is roomy enough to haul you, your crew and everyone's gear.

A LOT OF THINKING WENT
INSIDE THE BOX


The new Silverado’s cargo bed includes smart features that let you customize the way you secure cargo. Organize cargo how you want with four standard lower tie-downs and optional upper tie-downs that can be attached in nine different locations.


Integrated pocket hand grips make it easier
to enter the box while stepping on the new
CornerStep rear bumper. The available EZ-
Lift and Lower Tailgate opens without a thud
and can be closed with one hand. Available
LED lamps under the bed rails make it
easier to see items in the bed, even with a
tonneau cover on. Standard bed rail
protectors help avoid damage, load after load.





RIDE, TOWING & HANDLING

COIL-OVER-SHOCK FRONT SUSPENSION


Used on all Silverado 1500 models, this suspension is precisely tuned for improved handling. The front shock module has been enhanced to increase road isolation in response to even smaller vibration inputs.


NEW HIGH LATERAL-RATE BODY MOUNTS


The new shear-style mounts at the A- and B-pillars dampen side-to-side vibrations, while the new hydraulic mounts at the C-pillar dampen both vertical and horizontal vibrations. The overall effect is a smoother and more comfortable ride.


LARGER REAR AXLES


The rear axle size has been increased to handle the increased torque. The 6.2L V-8 engine, available this fall, features a 9.5-inch axle, and the V-6 models feature an 8.6-inch axle. A 9.76-inch rear axle is included with the optional Max Trailering Package available this fall.


FOUR-WHEEL DISC BRAKES WITH DURALIFE ROTORS


In addition to daily use, technologies like ABS, Hill Start Assist, StabiliTrak and Trailer Sway Control give Silverado’s brakes a workout. Our new Duralife brake rotors have been hardened with a special GM-patented process to provide long-lasting stopping power and rotors that can last up to twice as long as conventional brakes.

TOW WITH CONFIDENCE


The Max Trailering Package, available this fall, offered with both V-8 engines, offers class-leading trailering capacity of up to 11,500 pounds maximum conventional towing.† New 7- and 4-pin trailer connectors are included in this and every trailering package. When it comes to hooking up, the available Rear-Vision Camera System with dynamic grid lines makes it easier to back up to the trailer.

On the road, Trailer Sway Control works with StabiliTrak® to automatically apply the brakes or reduce engine power when the rocking of a swaying trailer is detected. Auto Grade Braking automatically downshifts the transmission to aid in going downhill. Tow/Haul mode always keeps the transmission in the right gear.

THE 2014 SILVERADO EXCEEDS THE HIGHEST OF STANDARDS.



We’ve made it our life’s work to make Silverado the benchmark of full-size pickups. Everything from Silverado’s interior and exterior styling to ergonomics and performance have been re-engineered. The new Silverado is stronger, smarter and more capable than ever.

Our available EcoTec3 5.3L V-8 engine offers an EPA-estimated 23 mpg highway for 2WD models and 22 mpg highway for 4WD models. That’s better than any V-8 competitor and beats the EPA highway estimates for the Ford F-150 EcoBoost turbocharged V-6.6 With our EcoTec3 5.3L V-8 engine, you keep the benefits of a larger-displacement engine and get better fuel efficiency. We think of it as “doing more with more.”

Silverado’s all-new interior is developed entirely around functionality. Centered around the needs of the driver, we intelligently integrated the smartest technologies into the interior, and the redesigned front seats are built for all-day comfort.

Download Catalog

Forward-opening doors provide easy access to a reimagined interior that provides more rear-seat leg room in Crew Cab and Double Cab models. Innovative available MyLink† features keep you and your crew connected to the world.

Innovations in capability extend all the way from the hood to the hitch. Improvements like the fully boxed front frame, larger axles and available Max Trailering package (available this fall) allow Silverado to offer a class-leading trailering capacity of up to 11,500 pounds.† Electric power steering, coil-over-shock front suspension and new high lateral-rate body mounts provide better ride and handling. Available integrated under-rail LED lamps, a new upper cargo tie-down system and an available innovative CornerStep rear bumper show we know how you use a truck.

Keep reading to learn how Silverado helps you accomplish the task at hand, time and time again.

Our 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8 offers the proven power and dependability of our V-8 truck engines, with better highway fuel economy than a leading competitor's smaller turbocharged V-61. It combines tested technologies like Active Fuel Management, Direct Injection and continuously Variable Valve Timing to provide class-leading fuel efficiency3 with the peace of mind that comes with our reliable engine designs. No matter which EcoTec3 engine you choose, Silverado offers you a fuel-efficient and powerful option7.


Direct Injection
Active Fuel Management
Variable Valve Timing


Built for truck use, the high-torque 4.3L V-6, coming late summer 2013, provides power for towing and acceleration. The first pickup V-6 with Active Fuel Management, the engine automatically switches to four-cylinder mode under light engine-load demands to help save fuel.†

Our most popular engine, Silverado’s all-aluminum 355-horsepower 5.3L V-8 senses your load, seamlessly switching between V-8 power and four-cylinder fuel economy as demands change.

Silverado’s EcoTec3 6.2L V-8 is the most powerful V-8 Chevrolet has ever offered in a full-size light duty pickup. It will be available this fall.

AN INTERIOR THAT COMFORTS YOUR BODY AND YOUR EARS

SEATS WITH ALL-DAY COMFORT


Crafted from stain-resistant high-wear cloth or leather appointments, Silverado’s seats are easier to clean, harder wearing and more comfortable than ever. Resilient dual-density foam maintains its shape longer to offer all-day comfort over years of ownership. Thanks to a 10-way power-adjustable seat available on LT models and standard on LTZ models, the driver seat is configurable to your exact preferences. Available heated and cooled seating options let you travel in constant comfort.



ORGANIZATION REIGNS SUPREME


With an overhead console, front- and rear-door storage and upper and lower glove boxes, every single space has been optimized. The available center console provides a two-compartment organization system; one provides features to support your technological needs, and a second space supports hanging files.

STEERING WHEEL WITH INTEGRATED CONTROLS


Flip through the displays, activate the available heated steering wheel, change songs and activate the available voice controls without ever taking your hands off the wheel.

OVERSIZED CONTROLS AND CENTER SWITCH BANK


The new Silverado interior groups most important controls within easy reach of the driver and features large knobs that are easy to adjust even while wearing work gloves. Beneath the climate controls, there’s a center switch bank that lets you access Silverado’s features with the touch of a finger.


IMPROVED REAR PASSENGER COMFORT


Both Silverado Crew Cab and Double Cab have redesigned seating that offers increased foot room and leg room in the second row. Accessing the rear seat and getting in and out is easier thanks to wider openings and larger doors on Crew Cab and Double Cab models.

BOSE® SOUND SYSTEM


An available Bose premium audio system offers a superior listening experience. This first-class upgrade provides you with high-quality sound and is available with both bench and bucket seats.

MYLINK

SO ADVANCED, IT’S EASY TO USE


The available MyLink† system puts technology at your fingertips and a voice command away. Bluetooth®† and USB† connectivity allow you to easily pair your phone with your truck. Both the 4.2-inch diagonal color screen and the 8-inch diagonal color touch-screen allow you to easily access connected devices. MyLink responds to natural-speech commands, allowing you to access its features with just a few words.

QUIET CABIN


There’s no quieter full-size pickup interior on the market, thanks to inlaid triple-sealed doors, a more aerodynamic windshield angle and a tuned exhaust system. Silverado models equipped with the 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8, coming fall 2013, also have active noise cancellation, similar to the sound-reducing technology used in high-end headphones.

DRIVER ALERT PACKAGE


Alerts from the available Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert systems can be transmitted to the driver through vibrations in the Safety Alert Driver Seat. Vibrations correspond to the direction of the indicated alert, reducing reaction time in helping to avoid potential collisions. Audible warnings can also be selected, if desired.

A COMPLETELY
REDESIGNED
EXTERIOR


Our engineers agonized over every crease and corner to improve Silverado’s aerodynamics. New inlaid doors, an integrated spoiler in the tailgate and dual power-dome hood all combine to create a truck that doesn’t just cheat the wind; Silverado rules it.

REGULAR CAB


Available fall 2013
Available in standard- or long-bed models, with 2WD or 4WD and with the standard EcoTec3 4.3L V-6 or available EcoTec3 5.3L V-8, you can build a Silverado Regular Cab that is anything but ordinary.

See 2013 Model


DOUBLE CAB


Available summer 2013
Silverado’s Double Cab offers additional space for passengers or cargo and now has forward-opening doors to make loading and unloading easier. Available in both 2WD and 4WD models, a standard bed and a choice of engines, a Silverado Double Cab can be built to your specifications.

See 2013 Model


CREW CAB


Two bed options, the new 6-foot, 6-inch cargo box and the 5-foot, 8-inch box, and a spacious interior mean Silverado Crew Cab is roomy enough to haul you, your crew and everyone's gear. And with three powerful and efficient engine choices, you have more ways than ever before to get the show on the road.

A LOT OF THINKING WENT
INSIDE THE BOX


The new Silverado’s cargo bed includes smart features that let you customize the way you secure cargo. Organize cargo how you want with four standard lower tie-downs and optional upper tie-downs that can be attached in nine different locations.


Integrated pocket hand grips make it easier
to enter the box while stepping on the new
CornerStep rear bumper. The available EZ-
Lift and Lower Tailgate opens without a thud
and can be closed with one hand. Available
LED lamps under the bed rails make it
easier to see items in the bed, even with a
tonneau cover on. Standard bed rail
protectors help avoid damage, load after load.





RIDE, TOWING & HANDLING

COIL-OVER-SHOCK FRONT SUSPENSION


Used on all Silverado 1500 models, this suspension is precisely tuned for improved handling. The front shock module has been enhanced to increase road isolation in response to even smaller vibration inputs.


NEW HIGH LATERAL-RATE BODY MOUNTS


The new shear-style mounts at the A- and B-pillars dampen side-to-side vibrations, while the new hydraulic mounts at the C-pillar dampen both vertical and horizontal vibrations. The overall effect is a smoother and more comfortable ride.


LARGER REAR AXLES


The rear axle size has been increased to handle the increased torque. The 6.2L V-8 engine, available this fall, features a 9.5-inch axle, and the V-6 models feature an 8.6-inch axle. A 9.76-inch rear axle is included with the optional Max Trailering Package available this fall.


FOUR-WHEEL DISC BRAKES WITH DURALIFE ROTORS


In addition to daily use, technologies like ABS, Hill Start Assist, StabiliTrak and Trailer Sway Control give Silverado’s brakes a workout. Our new Duralife brake rotors have been hardened with a special GM-patented process to provide long-lasting stopping power and rotors that can last up to twice as long as conventional brakes.


Send


See Features


TOW WITH CONFIDENCE


The Max Trailering Package, available this fall, offered with both V-8 engines, offers class-leading trailering capacity of up to 11,500 pounds maximum conventional towing.† New 7- and 4-pin trailer connectors are included in this and every trailering package. When it comes to hooking up, the available Rear-Vision Camera System with dynamic grid lines makes it easier to back up to the trailer.

On the road, Trailer Sway Control works with StabiliTrak® to automatically apply the brakes or reduce engine power when the rocking of a swaying trailer is detected. Auto Grade Braking automatically downshifts the transmission to aid in going downhill. Tow/Haul mode always keeps the transmission in the right gear.

BOLD Z71 FEATURES


The available Z71 Off-Road Package features suspension upgrades designed for rugged off-road terrain, including Rancho® monotube shocks, an underbody transfer case shield (4WD models), automatic locking rear differential, all-terrain tires and Hill Descent Control. Inside and out, the Z71 has rugged looks, with a unique Z71 gauge cluster, lower bumper and grille and available custom 18-inch bright machined-aluminum wheels. Custom Z71 graphics on the instrument cluster and pickup box, as well as brushed-aluminum sill plates and special interior accents make this truck not only tough but stylish.

ACCESSORIES


Silverado accessories let you customize your truck.

Chrome exhaust tips, a chrome fuel door and chrome recovery hooks provide nice visual accents that add a finishing touch to your customization.

"just buy a HD"

I just used forddirect to search the lots of the 4 closest dealers to me and none of them had any 8' bed F-250's gas trucks either.

They were all F-350 with 8' bed duallies, if it was a F-250 it was a diesel or regular cab 8' XL (might as well buy a F-150 then). And there were no F-350 gas trucks period.

This supports my theory that the 8' beds are getting imposssible to find unlike they were circa 2005. I don' want to go round and round with this again because I heard the other side that supports short beds and don't want a headache.


Comments

@ Scott

The TRD supercharger is not factory and is an almost $6,000 add-on after you purchase your vehicle by a TRD dealer to retain your warranty.

Other manufacturers have their own superchargers that retain the factory warranty like Ford has Roush racing supercharger kits that does not void factory warranty in the F-150 if done at a Ford/Roush dealer.

TRX4-Tom, the new 6.2 for the trucks was built for trucks from the ground up. Read the report on this engine from GM and you may learn something you did not know.


Posted by: Greg | May 30, 2013 5:49:40 AM


12,000 lbs towing just another arbitrary number. When GM (and everyome else - like toyota already has) adopts the J2807 standard, then I'll believe towing stats. This coming from a F250 owner - yea Ford needs to adopt the standard too.


Posted by: Matt | May 30, 2013 5:52:13 AM


At least the Speedo goes up to 140 now, before it was only 120 so you couldn't tell how fast you were going after you took the limiter off and you had the needle burried.


Posted by: mick | May 30, 2013 6:52:12 AM


12000 lbs towing is a joke, GM is forgetting its stil a half ton, I had 2 chevy's that had rear end and tranny issues and they had a towing capacity of 9000lbs, and I only towed a boat that was around 3K lbs, that 12K rating should say, don't tow more than 3K though


Posted by: nitro | May 30, 2013 6:52:38 AM


TAXPAYER WASTE!!! NO company NEEDS 2 Trucks! NOT on OUR DIME! DODGE Doesn't need 2 and Neither does FORD! GovernmentMotors could have done this with Chevrolet!!! I want MY TAXPAYER DOLLARS BACK for this Waste! GMC = GovtMoCo.


Posted by: MoparMadness | May 30, 2013 8:37:16 AM


It should be a crime to call anything with a V-8 "Eco"- anything.

There's nothing "Eco" about this truck.
There's nothing new about this truck.
This is more of the same gas guzzlin, ever-increasing in size and capacity fodder for the size queens that most of us are saying we don't want anymore and can't afford anymore.


Posted by: MaXx | May 30, 2013 8:43:42 AM


[Thanks for the pissing contest guys]. My take: Good for GMC for improving a SUPER profitable truck. I don't care for it but the preliminary numbers look solid. My best guess is that it will be set up for 87 octane with better numbers available on premium.

Posted by: Mitch | May 30, 2013 8:53:00 AM


ALL1: the F-150 doesn't not use the SuperDuty diesel transmission. If you check the gear ratios, they are slightly different from the standard ZF 6 speed auto gearing.

TRX: There isn't a 6.4 in the Ram, so you are making a hypothetical strawman. The 6.4 needs a dual length intake runner system, and a more displacement. Scaled exactly down to 6.162 liters, that would be 451hp / 447ft-lbs. The truck application of the LT1 engine is optimized for torque over power. It makes more power and has a better BSFC than Ford's 6.2.

Posted by: papa jim | May 30, 2013 10:01:15 AM


@TRX2 (yes not having a locker you are driving a glorified two wheel drive truck)

Why the hate? Just because I am not a fan boy of one truck you think I am a troll? Who is the one who has nothing to say unless he can throw in something about his two wheel drive Dodge you brag about?

6.4, will we ever see this unicorn motor mopar guys have been bragging about?

@Moparweenie

Jelous are we? GM has paid back the money just like Dodge and GM isn't owned by foreign company. Nice try, learn to use cap locks next time.

I swear, some people just don't understand the basics of splitting costs between two lines and profitability. Learn it then make brash out of this world comments for no reason...


Posted by: Tyler | May 30, 2013 10:20:30 AM


@Lou - I think the same thing keeps happening to GM, too conservative too late. I've been reading all these news posts like everyone else and the eco-tec's are essentially vortec's with better cylinder deactivation and direct-injection nothing more. They needed an absolute over-haul done under the hood if they wanted to be conservative on their exterior. I'm actually interested in what ford (2015) will do assuming their truck will debut before RAM's. A lot of people think theres going to be a s***load of aluminum but, I just don't see that being done to the exterior I mean, you have to make a truck to be a strong work horse to get the job done. I notice PUTC gives a lot of stories that never come to the table, probably just mis-information to keep things at bay. the manufacturers give the news sources bogus stories then its posted online as truth.


Posted by: Joe | May 30, 2013 10:29:29 AM


No one will ever be happy. Some people would complain if the truck was plated in gold and had a 6000 hp engine in it. Instead of intelligently critiquing the product, many just say it's horrible without any reason. Maybe someday when they become the engineers, they can design it the way they want to.

Posted by: Larry P | May 30, 2013 11:11:31 AM


@joe - I do think that the GM "Ecotec" engines are just updated engines. They haven't really come foreward with anything significant. It was stated in one of the tests that the 2014 GM/Chev are huge leaps foreward but only when compared to GM's last generation of pickups.

The current Ram's are incredible trucks. That is a bad sign for GMC because the new Ram is a midcycle update. The "new" truck is yet to come. Ram has the VM diesel coming and has the 6.2 and 6.4 as kick ass back up engines.

The same can be said for Ford. Their trucks are relatively unchanged except for the engines but were a huge leap foreward for Ford. 4 new engines all at the beginning of their life cycles with a new truck on the horizon also spells trouble for GMC.


Posted by: Lou | May 30, 2013 11:44:30 AM


Can someone please post info on the Chrysler 6.2L because last I read it won't be available in any other configuration than a Supercharged 6.2L and it will be restricted to SRT only.

Posted by: Greg | May 30, 2013 12:38:11 PM


I'm a gm guy, I have 3 previous generation Sierras. I've got to say that the front end of this new truck is hideous. I really like the new Silvy, but what was GM thinking when they designed the new lights for the sierra????

Posted by: Sierra89 | May 30, 2013 1:03:42 PM


Why does it have the rear mudflap on the wrong side? If they can't even get the mudflap in the right spot imagine the rest of the truck.


Posted by: Hank | May 30, 2013 1:07:47 PM


GM always gets complaints from outsiders on the Sierras looks, but their goal was never about "Pretty-Boy" styling in the first place; Power, Ruggedness, Functionality and Reliability; at the end of it all, this is what really matters to consumers.


Sierra4Life!


Posted by: raymondj | May 30, 2013 1:35:01 PM


@raymondj - that is true and is why Ford outsells GMC and Ram has made huge gains in the market.

What, no Chevy boxes, or any cleaver storage devices on this thing?


Posted by: Mike | May 30, 2013 2:24:06 PM


@Hank It's not a mud flap, it is more of a air flap. It helps move airflow around the tire better.


Posted by: johnny doe | May 30, 2013 2:38:53 PM


Gm is still good company just need to get more ballsy with their engine platforms. Although I do think their v6 is the most impressive in that segment. I really like both pentastar & Gm on the new v6s great job. I treat my pickups like tramps so hopefully this Ram won't last too long pickups any a new pickup already LMFAO...this 2012 is so 5 minutes ago lol.


Posted by: Joe | May 30, 2013 2:50:21 PM


@lou yeah I think I will run this Ram truck into a tree next year and buy me a new truck. Lmao


Posted by: Joe | May 30, 2013 2:59:06 PM


@Joe - just make sure there are no current recalls on seatbelts or airbags ;)


Posted by: Lou | May 30, 2013 4:35:56 PM


After reading through, I get really tired of hearing bs complaints about "car engines in trucks".

Engines can be retuned. There's been a lot of discussion already here in this thread about that.
Transmission shift points can be altered.

Engines don't care what they're in. Pentastar, EcoBoost, EcoTec-they're built to be in cars and trucks, with the exception of the 4.3l EcoTec as Chevy seems to have their heads up their asses with this superiority complex because they stuck with a "real" truck engine. You're not any better just because you have a V8 or a bigger V8 than the other guy.

Regardless, I'm interested to see how the V6 engines pan out more than the V8 engines because when I finally replace my aged Ranger, I'll be able to have a V6 equipped truck-regardless of brand-that is a great daily driver, easy on gas, and can get my to my favorite fishing spots with ease.

Posted by: jason | May 30, 2013 7:07:42 PM


@jeff- I agree the engine doesn't care what vehicle it's being put in too . But in the past when v6s where put into trucks the mpgs increase has ben no existent ( correct me if Iam wrong ) v.s.there v8 counter parts .

I believe that the trucks need v8s to move them. The jury is still out on the Eco bost, we will see if GMs 4.3 can get the job done , I think it can .

Time will tell , the 4.3 I think has the best shot to make the v6 a viable option .

gpz85 you are mostly right! However, as long as their are municipal buyers, utility companies, forestry operations and state parks, you'll have six cylinder half ton trucks. The big 3 determined long ago that fleet buyers want a six. It used to be a six with a 3-speed stick but I'm showing my age. Now it's just a six and whatever auto trans is in the catalog. GM's new 4.3 has potential but mainstream truck buyers will buy V8s.

Posted by: papa jim | May 31, 2013 7:32:51 AM


The 5.0 in the f150 can pass gm 6.2 with no problem. Its the same motor that in the mustang with diffent heads. In the bossmustang it makes around 444 hp. Ford has a crate 5.0 the makes around 500 hp

Posted by: Luke | May 31, 2013 9:52:15 AM


@dropped ford

I like giving the whole picture not just part of it and you only gave part of it.
Boos Mustang= 444hp but only 380lb ft. Which is minus 10lb ft from the Mustang GT.
The 6.2L from GM is 455hp and 460lb ft. Now I know you had to have noticed the Boss Mustang has 80lb ft of torque less.
Just to be perfectly honest I would take the 5.0L Coyote over the 5.7L Hemi in the challenger and charger and the 6.2L in the Camaro SS and upcoming Chevy SS sedan. I just don't want it over the other 2 in a pickup.

I don't understand why all the either OHC or OHV thing when the biggest determination should be what application you are put it in. In a performance car I would rather have the 5.0L in a truck I would rather the 6.2L. Look at 5.7L iforce (which I love) compared to the 5.7L Hemi the 5.7L iforce basically comes from the 5.0L and had to be given a really long stroke to give it more torque and at a lower rpm than the 5.0L 5,200 rpm peak torque. As a result the 5.7L iforce doesn't rev as high 5,600 rpm for the 5.7L iforce compared to the 6,600 rpm for the 5.0L. As a result of that the 5.7L iforce makes less horsepower than 5.0L. Then you look at the 5.7L Hemi which makes more torque than horsepower in every application and slightly more horsepower and torque than the 5.7L iforce and it does it without having the really long stroke. If I am correct both 5.7L engines rev to 5,600 rpm which kind of defeats the purpose of going OHC as OHC engines are supposed to rev higher to achieve more power than their same displacement OHV counterpart. The drawback to that is the OHV will achieve better FE than their same size displacement OHV counterpart due to being cheaper which allows for cylinder deactivation and start/stop technology to be included. As I know only Mercedes and Audi pair cylinder deactivation and start/stop technology to a DOHC engine because it goes into a $75,000 car and not a $35,000 pickup. If you want an example look at the Nissan Titan and Infiniti QX56 their is a reason why the luxury brand has the more expensive VVEL and direct injected version of the 5.6L DOHC and the other has the simpler version and is probably the reason why Toyota doesn't do a D4S and Valvematic 5.7L iforce as you would be adding more cost on top of the already more expensive DOHC.

As much as everybody like to give GM a hard time the fact remains that in 2011 Ford changed their V8's from the 4.6L and 5.4L to the 5.0L and 6.2L. The 5.4L was used in the F150 and Super Duty so you can tell the 6.2L was mainly designed for the Super Duty by the fact that it is a simple dual spark plugs SOHC as DOHC version would only suck down more fuel and would be more complex something HD pickup owners don't want. Have you ever noticed the more complex the engine the shorter the warranty as OHC engines have a shorter warranty than a OHV engines. That could be a reason why a company might develop a twin turbo and direct injected V6 but not put it in a pickup application because they won't warranty it for a 100,000 miles like they would a simple OHV V8 engine with fuel saving technology. So in pickup application 6.2L to 6.2L GM > Ford because of way more power and way better fuel economy.

@Lou - when did you do your first tune-up on your 2010 ford? I think mines due for a tune-up its running a little hot regular temp: (199 to 203 degrees) irregular temp: (199 to 210 degrees). odometer: 26,400 miles, scheduled Manual tune-up: 30,000 miles, gas: running 87 octane (chrysler recommends 89 octane).

Posted by: Joe | May 31, 2013 1:47:28 PM


Thank you very much DenverMike.

I can multipost too.

@DenverMike
When debating you, you have always asked for proof. I always have provided relevant information that would be considered credible.

Now its your turn to provide credible proof, like you always ask others to provide. Fair is fair.

Provide proof including links that the Chicken Tax and the trade barriers don't impact pickups imported from outside of NAFTA. Rember I want PICKUP TRUCK information, that is current and valid, this will improve your credibility.

Not providing proof means your views are incorrect.

Don't provide links that don't support your belief.

DenverMike, you can have opinions, but when many sources of information are against your opinions don't you think you are incorrect? Your opinions make you look fanatical.

There is no need to ask me any questions or don't try and deviate from the debate.

You think you are good at debating, now prove you can debate, but on equal terms and place the same expectations on yourself that you expect on others.

Real proof.

Lou, I'm not insane, I have always supported my arguments.


Posted by: Big Al from Oz | Apr 7, 2013 8:15:56 PM
@Lou
I'm sorry for what appears to be my single minded approach.

DenverMike has always asked for proof which I have and you (and others) have provided countless times in the past.

He rejected credible sources of information, then always asks re-questions to validate information already given.

In my mind the guy should cough up as he has failed provided any valid information as of yet supporting his view.

If his views are as strong as they are they DenverMike must think his views are based on some form of factual information. He should be able to provide links and documents supporting his view.

It isn't rocket science to find information on Google. If you can't find it then it probably doesn't exist.


When I first started posting on PUTC I had little knowledge of the depth of the barriers in place. All I wanted to know was why the US has a very limited range and performance capability of midsizers.

I don't and have never thought there is no full size market. Also I'm more pro diesel than midsizer, only when diesel is suitable, as diesel isn't suitable for short trips of less than 10 minutes as you have mentioned in the past.

The rest is history.

@DenverMike, should all trade barriers and taxes on pickup trucks be removed?

Yes or No.

Posted by: Big Al from Oz | May 31, 2013 4:52:14 PM


I agree with lou. I now prefer the looks of the chevy over the gmc. This thing looks really weird to me. Those headlights just look weird. Maybe it will look better in person. One thing a lot of you chevy guys are forgetting is that the ecoboost is old news. Ecoboost first showed up what 2 years ago in trucks and earlier than that in cars? Do you forget Ford will likely be revealing their new trucks in less than a year with new transmissions and engine upgrades (quite possibly a half-ton diesel)? I think these new GM trucks might end up on par with what ford has now, but what ford has now is due for a major upgrade.

Posted by: beebe | May 31, 2013 5:09:41 PM


@Joe - I think that my truck recommends a spark plug change at 90,000 miles. I can't find a tune-up interval for it. Seems like a real long time - now for 3 pages of stuck sparkplug stories ;)


Posted by: Lou | May 31, 2013 11:43:04 PM


At AD. I used to work at a parts store. I know someone that had a f150 with the 6.2 2 wheel drive and was getting 23 on hwy and the ford 6.2 has much room to grow. I was just making a point that the 5.0 in the f150 can make almost as much power as chev 6.2 but in a smaller displacment. The 5.0 mustang is faster then the comaro with the 6.2. And like i said ford got a crate 5.0 that makes 500hp and clost to that in tq. Dont beleve me look up 2014 rouse stage 3 mustange with up graded 5.0. In the rouse it make 650 to 700 hp but with a supercharger. Fords smaller dispacment motors is making almost as much power as larger dispacements motors. Yeah i own 2f150 one i had for 13 years and with the 4.2 and the older the truck get the better it runs and i drive it hard.

Posted by: dropped ford | Jun 1, 2013 12:12:12 AM


@dropped ford - You're right, the DOHC 5.0 clearly out does GM's 6.2 from every angle. But here's the rub. The 6.2 is simple, smaller over all and weighs about the same as the 5.0. Then again, GM's newest upgrades to the 6.2 adds a new wrinkle... More power, all aluminum, DI, cyl deactivation, etc. I can't wait for Ford's response.

helloooooooo????????????

Was that whole "PUTC Survey Calls For Higher Standards" story just a bunch of smoke blown up our ass's?

I think that the 2013 Ram is the new benchmark and compass pointing the direction all of the automakers will head towards.

The 2013 Ram will win the 2013 Light-Duty Challenge.

I actually like the 4x4 badge on the front fender, I always thought it was stupid when manufacturers put the 4x4 on the back fender instead of over the 4x4 driven axle.

I like where GMC is going but, not chevrolet. The GMC pickup is much better progressed than its sister pickup. I'm very happy with my 2012 RAM & probably won't be in the market for long time however, if GMC continues to impress me with a refined pickup likewise to this article, I might find myself drawing back toward GM loyalty if they prove themselves again!

I love the exterior on this new GMC Sierrahttp://www.youtube.com/user/GMC?v=vobarH-ORx8 now I can be seen driving that. I don't know what it is I like about it I just know I do. https://si0.twimg.com/profile_images/2320477809/s7x9f5wob6ns7rzoln7c.jpeg Toyota doesn't make my Salsa Red anymore and I had o color match it on my own as Toyota didn't color match that color.

I can't believe some of the post on here. I still haven't figured out what hamburgers and trucks have in common. Sounds like someone needs to get a life and maybe being eaten up with the DUMBAS$# will start to go away. Then we have these STUPID mile long post no one gives a SH$% about. Sounds like someone needs to get a life there too but ain't sure if being eaten up with the DUMBA$# will go away there either. I guess they are born everyday and you can for sure find them on here. How sad so called adults have to be so stupid.

Sales numbers are useless. McDonalds sells a ton more burgers than any good restaurant but their quality sucks!

Like I said before, you can sure find them on here.

@TRX

Are you butt hurt that the bonafied "Hemi" is now reduced to competing with the mid level engine from GM and only barely besting their #'s while getting worse mpg's and towing? Kind of sound like it. You do understand torque and hp aren't the only determing factors in towing right?

I am with you on the appearence buyers or box checkers...

Why is everyone so against appearance buyers?

@Dave: Despite what you state about "appearance buyers" AND taking into account that new home building has accelerated and subsequently accelerated pickup sales, that still doesn't explain why pickup trucks as a class are still VERY high in sales--I've not heard of any drop to a mere 6% of new vehicle sales. If anything, I'm seeing a lot more pickup trucks in private driveways than ever before--driveways that never held a pickup before.

Not only that, but fully 50% of all the pickups I see in my own region have some form of tonneau cover which makes that open bed nearly useless for anyone who regularly carries things IN that bed. I'll grant that I'm planning to put a tonneau over the bed of my 1990 F-150 (8-foot), but then, for its age it has almost no rust inside or out and the bed alone is worth more than the rest of the truck combined (people will pay $5000 for a rust-free bed like mine). Even the engine, the 5.0L EFI is probably only worth a couple thousand to someone who wants to build a race car.

Yes, I'll accept that many if not most trucks getting sold today are for work, but when I look at the trucks on my local Ford dealer's lot right now, only one or two are actually built for work, the rest are oversized family cars or sports rigs.

Vulpine: I believe you added one to many 0's to your figures, as around here, a rust free bed although very rare, is still only worth around $500, and the 5.0? maybe $200! like I said around here, now it that was a 5.3 or 5.7 Chevy SB? maybe $800-$1000!!! and the Chevy bed? maybe the same as the Ford Bed.

@sandman 4x4 there is nothing you can do to help Vulpine. If I had a 1990 F150 I wouldn't admit it.

1995 F150 yes, a better truck. He should try to find one.

Come on mods, when someone like Sierra comes on and pollutes the *entire* comment section like that delete his posts and ban his IP.

The 6% is not all buyers it is the appearance buyers who buy for looks - i.e., no functional purpose but for the sake of image. They will haul nothing more than groceries. These are the buyers who have been dropped out. The tow/RV buyers have also fallen from 10 to 14% to around 5% in 2009 since the economy is bad and people aren't buying toys like they used to. Work truck buyers are up. The Tow RV buyers will be back, but the appearance buyers will not.

Tonneau covers are fine for work trucks. Most tonneau covers are soft roll up covers so they roll up out of the way and allow access to the bed. They also have the benefit of locking if you have a locking tailgate. Only get the soft roll up because the metal roll ups are not flexible if your load protrudes in the the covered area and the metal cannister takes up too much room in the front of the bed.
