    Sharp looking Silverado. I love the black grill option on those trucks!

    How does iit tow compared to the Durango? I assume the Silverado has the 5.3 in it? Been trying to keep my list of TV's limited to something with a rating of 5500lbs or higher, and 350ft-lbs or higher. 3rd row seems nice, but I have a feeling it's more sizzle than steak for us.

    @OperationROL Thanks! Your truck and some of the others at Shelbyville are part of the reason I had " I need a shiny new truck" syndrome.


    @2kwik4u The Silverado tows it better. Don't get me wrong I still think the Durango tows awesome and that is what I used to tug the boat around all year... The Silverado does have the 5.3 and the Durango feels much more powerful. The Durango is an awesome truck and I still love driving it. I use my 3rd row a few times a year but its nice to know I have it when I need it...

    I’m still amazed how well these pull without ever going above 2500 rpms.

    Just an FYI.....Was doing some research on these last night. The 3.08 rear axle equipped Silverado's are only rated to 6,100lbs towing. I was completely shocked at that number. Didn't think it would dip that "low" in a fullsize pickup. The 3.42 rear axle trucks are rated to 9,100lbs. Tells me the chassis, and cooling systems are capable, just not the driveline. I was completely blown away by that. Glad I did my research, as now I know to look for the 3.42 trucks when shopping!

    No idea what a packed 24ft boat weighs, but I'm gonna guess a bit more than that. I know it doesn't matter for my little 190, but thought some of the 242 guys might be interested.
